Lowden / S23 Custom / 1993 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
This is a great example of the smaller body size Lowden, with a Custom Spruce top, Abalone rosette, and Gotoh 510 tuners, all coupled with Walnut back and sides. Tonally Walnut sits somewhere between the warmth of Mahogany, and the clarity of Rosewood, plus the smaller body size gives real focus to the tone. It has a rich, full sound, with great resonance and sustain, and the neck has a great feel and very easy playing action. As with all Lowdens it handles alternate tuning particularly well, and is equally happy being fingerpicked or strummed. At 29 years old it has matured really well, but is in very good condition, with just a few bumps and bruises. The guitar has an active LR Baggs pickup installed, with volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight 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.
