Lowden / S10 / 2002 / Natural / Guitar
Lowdens are one of the few makes of guitar I would choose to have from new rather than buying vintage. There's something about George Lowden's creations, maybe it's the thicker than usual top, the dolphin bracing, the stronger neck join making alternative tunings a joy... I just know that when I pick up a Lowden I know I'm about to play something very special. They resonate like no other guitar make that I know, and this S10 is no exception, with a Cedar top and Mahogany back and sides, you start playing and superlatives just come to mind. It is somehow bright and mellow at the same time, delivering a beautiful balanced tone, with a surprisingly rich bass, yet detailed mids and trebles, and is equally happy being fingerpicked or strummed. At 10 years old the guitar is in excellent condition, with barely a mark on it, yet it has already begun to mature beautifully, making it a very difficult guitar to put down. It comes in it's original Hiscox hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
