George Lowden built his first “guitar” at the age of ten. “My friend Alan French and I made two “guitars” with the help of his dad, who was a boat builder in Groomsport, County Down. The “guitars” had fishing line for strings, bent over nails for frets, and a square soundbox!!”. Years passed since that day and the Lowden name became one of the main names in Acoustic guitar making. Throughout the years Lowden guitars were manufactured in Ireland and Japan, under several ownerships until the year 2004, from which, Lowden guitars are built by George Lowden and his family, in a business that is owned by them.
Lowden Guitars are without a doubt some of the finest acoustic guitars on the planet! Their distinctive, rich tone makes Lowden guitars really one of a kind.
