Considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of acoustic guitar production, Lowden just keep knocking out models that simply take our breath away.
Richard Thompson is best known as a pioneer of British Folk music. He made his debut as a member of Fairport Convention back in 1967 and has maintained a successful career ever since. With a Grammy nomination, an Ivor Novello and an OBE, Thompson is a revered songwriter and guitar player. The Lowden Richard Thompson signature guitar is a fitting tribute to a great career.
Lowden are known for their subtle use of majestic tone woods and timeless design and this is demonstrated perfectly in the Thompson Signature. With a truly beautiful Figured Ziricote back and sides, this guitar not only looks incredible, it sounds it too. The top is AAAA grade Cedar, this delivers a broad tonal response and a crystal clear clarity.
With a rich piano like response and unbelievable clarity it's equally at home as a finger style guitar or strumming big chords. A 5 piece Mahogany/Walnut/Rosewood neck offers a familiar yet delicious neck combination. Every element of this guitar has been developed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, the result is simply stunning.
With incredible projection, this guitar is a great representation of the on-going collaborative relationship between Richard Thompson and George Lowden.
