Pre-Owned Lowden Alex de Grassi Signature Model #21766
Just arrived and absolutely stunning! The Lowden Alex DeGrassi Signature Guitar is now here at Heartbreaker Guitars. This guitar is simply a treasure! Glorious Sitka Spruce top over an incredible AAAA Quilted Maple back and sides. Appointed elegantly with a Mahogany binding, this thing looks as good as it sounds.
It was back in the early eighties that Alex de Grassi first started playing Lowden guitars and the relationship between he and George has grown through various new guitars since then. George designed this new signature model for Alex with the aim of matching his wish list in terms of playability (slightly wider neck with comfortable profile, and a deeper cutaway for the upper registers). The tone is slightly “jazzy” - warm and full with slightly accentuated upper mids.
"This thing does it all" according to George Lowden. And Alex DeGrassi's playing emphasizes that with spiritual tones that just jump out of the guitar!
"Alex has been playing Lowden since the early eighties and it is befitting of his exceptional talent that we mark this relationship with his signature model. This beautiful guitar has a full, round, ‘jazz like’ tone and yet it has much more sustain, clarity and sensitivity than an arch top guitar."
