The Lowden GL10 Tazmanian Blackwood has just arrived at Heartbreaker Guitars. This beautiful electric guitar has all of the incredible craftsmanship that we have come to expect from George Lowden. The GL 10 was built as a prototype for Ed Sheeran a few years ago when Ed had asked him to build an electric guitar for a close friend. George delivered the guitar to Sheeran and he liked it so much, he asked him, "Can you make me one too?" At this point George realized he had built something special. It was then that the Lowden Electric GL10 Guitar was born.
It was introduced at NAMM and everybody was buzzing about it. It has all the elegance and craftsmanship of a Lowden, but in an electric version. With Lollar pick ups and master grade woods, the guitar has bags of tone.
Forty years 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 pairs instantly recognizable Lowden characteristics and carefully crafted contours with unique design features, finely tuned for that signature tone and sustain.
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.
