Forty years after George Lowden first built an electric guitar, Lowden Guitars introduces the all new GL-10 electric.
January 24, 2018
Forty years on from when George Lowden first built an electric guitar, 2018 sees the introduction of the all new Lowden GL-10 electric.
George Lowden says: “My interest was revived through a request from an artist in 2016. I went away on a retreat to think through the design options. The first prototype exceeded my expectations in terms of visual appeal, balance and, in the guitar’s inherent design features, a natural ability to sustain without trying!"
The single cut body pairs instantly recognizable Lowden characteristics and carefully crafted contours with unique design features that are finely tuned for that signature tone and sustain. Select Master Grade tonewoods are combined with integral five piece neck to body construction, through-body strings with solid brass-lined string holes, embedded tonal brass plate within the body, Lollar Imperial Gold pickups, and a hand rubbed natural oil finish.
The GL-10 embodies classic Lowden character, drawing from over 40 years of guitar making heritage, to invite the player to explore new tonal possibilities. The guitar will be available in three variations with either a walnut, Tasmanian blackwood, or koa figured wood cap, with first delivery expected Spring 2018. Prices start from $4,440.
