We travelled all the way to Northern Ireland to meet with the strange warlocks that build these beautiful instruments and were no less than blown away by their majesty. This o-23 is the original Lowden design that has a booming piano like quality with a warmth that is unmistakably Lowden.
The Original Series represents the four models with four wood combinations that George has designed and built over his 40 years of guitar making. Unlike the 35 and 50 series’, each Original Series model has its own two-number model designation: the 22, the 23, the 25 and the 32. The Original series features understated aesthetic appointments; a seven-piece wood rosette, single piece wood binding on the back, single piece binding and three-piece purfling on the top, rosewood front-head facing and an ebony bound ebony fingerboard.
