Introducing the Winter 2017 limited edition models

On the back of the success of the Bushmills X Lowden guitars, the opportunity arose to work again with ancient bog oak previously an exclusive preserve of the ten Bushmills guitars.
With no more than 30 available worldwide, the Winter 2017 Limited Edition models are available in both 35 and 50 Series specification and will be available in all body sizes from Wee Lowden (WL) up to O.

Each model features ancient bog oak back and sides paired with a lutz spruce soundboard. Other appointments include figured Tasmanian blackwood bindings, ancient bog oak matched headfacings, a cherry and a walnut 5 piece neck and a custom Ameritage hard case. The bog oak itself has been carbon dated to an astonishing 5300 years old.

George Lowden said, “Having tested both bog oak and lutz spruce independently, I couldn’t help but think that the combination of these two woods would make for a fantastic guitar. Bog oak has a mellow character not always associated with our guitars but it adds a depth and richness to the sound whilst the lutz spruce lends clarity along with strong but not overpowering projection.”
