Considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of acoustic guitar production, Lowden just keep knocking out models that simply take our breath away.
Jon Gomm is a pioneer of the new wave of percussive fingerstyle players. Fusing a broad range of styles with his distinctive voice and complex rhythmic content, Jon Gomm is held in equally high regard to that of Andy Mckee and Preston Reed. Finding global recognition with his Youtube hit Passionflower, Jon has been a long time user of Lowden Guitars, his beloved O32C, Wilma a constant touring companion.
Lowden are known for their subtle use of majestic tone woods and timeless design and this is demonstrated perfectly in the Gomm Signature. With a truly beautiful American Black Cherry back and sides, this guitar not only looks incredible, it sounds it too. The top is where this guitar really comes into its own though. With a Spruce/Red Cedar Hybrid top, this guitar features 2 thin sheets perfectly laminated with their grains slightly offset. This delivers a broad tonal response but also increases the stability and percussive qualities of the wood.
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 Maple/Rosewood neck with Ebony fingerboard offer 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 Jon Gomm and George Lowden.
