Hello everyone and welcome to another Heartbreaker Guitars blog post! Today we have a very special blog, as we are discussing our owner and operator Brendan Smyth's trip to Northern Ireland to see George Lowden and the guys in the shop!
"Man, what an experience that trip was!" Brendan said. He got to see a whole lot of England and Ireland, but stopping at the Lowden Shop was the highlight! These guys REALLY know how to build a guitar, and getting to watch the process first hand was absolutely incredible. It really brings a new appreciation to the finished product and craftsmanship that goes into them.
The shop is located in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, an amazing location making the trip all the more worth it. Of course, we also have quite a few friends working in the shop so getting to see them and catch up was a nice cherry on the cake!
We also got to see the bodies for a few new GL-10's. At NAMM 2018 we got a chance to Fall in Love with these guitars and getting to see how they are made was really cool!
Plus, look at all these beauties in the making that will one day be stunning Lowden Guitars!
All in all, it was a super fun trip, and Brendan got to learn a lot about what's going on at the shop. Hopefully it will help us better serve you, our Lowden Lovin' customers when you come in to Fall in Love with a Lowden Guitar!
