It just arrived and its absolutely stunning! The brand new Lowden Guitars Richard Thompson Signature Series Guitar is here. California Cedar over a Master Grade Ziricote back and sides give this powerful acoustic a warmth and clarity that only a Lowden could deliver. Richard Thompson is a legendary singer/songwriter/ guitarist whose partnership with George Lowden has yielded an uncompromising acoustic that can literally do it all.
"It has been my great pleasure to get to know Richard over the years and to enjoy his playing! At Lowden we only consider a signature model for someone who has played our guitars consistently for a long time. Richard has been playing Lowden guitars for many many years and we are honored to introduce this model! Richard chose this wood combination and other specifications because of the really full-bodied loud and clear response of Ziricote and cedar."
