1998 Lowden 0-25. had some very small dings removed and a nice setup by Del Langejans (www.langejansguitars
). He is the only authorized lowden repair person in north america and he does ASTOUNDING work. he also make great guitars of his own, played by phil keaggy, muriel anderson, peter frampton. Also have a Paul McGill Cedar/Rosewood classical guitar, 1990 Fender Strat Ultra. Looking for a D now for irish/bluegrass flatpicking. Might find a lowden or a bourgeois or a breedlove.
Love the Lowden 0-25. The thing rings for weeks in lowered altered tunings. Have used many different strings including newtones. the ones i like best are the D'Addario fingerstyle set, compiled and sold by Kevin Ryan. Intresting blend of mediums on string 1,2,6 and lights on strings 3,4,5.
I also have it armed with a K&K Pure Trinity Western transducer/mic setup. The best out there!!
SO glad that George has his name, his company and his guitars back. Looking forward to hearing his new line
