Lowden Launch The New GL-10 Electric Guitar

Wednesday, January 24, 2018



Lowden Guitars introduce GL-10 electric guitar to model line-up

Forty years on from when George Lowden first built an electric guitar, 2018 sees the introduction of the all new GL-10 electric. 

George 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 recognisable Lowden characteristics and carefully crafted contours with unique design features finely tuned for that signature tone and sustain.

Select Master Grade tone woods are paired 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 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 that await.

The guitar wil be available in three variations with either a walnut, Tasmanian blackwood or koa figured wood cap with first delivery expected Sprig 2018. Contact your nearest dealer for pricing enquiries.

About Lowden Guitars

George Lowden has pioneered acoustic guitar design and building techniques since 1974. From the very beginning he was determined to develop unique designs and not just copy well known makes. Today the company employs a team of more than 20 skilled craftsmen (including George's sons), who all build Lowden guitars by hand. The Lowden guitar is the result of unique design, workmanship and assembly techniques along with their choice of quality woods. It is this combination which determines how Lowden guitars sound, feel, and play.
