Introducing the Lowden O-22C from the esteemed Original Series! Crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail, this acoustic guitar represents the pinnacle of quality and craftsmanship. As the very first range introduced by Lowden back in 1976, the Original Series embodies the unwavering commitment to excellence that has defined the brand throughout its history.

The O-22C model holds a special place in George Lowden's heart, as he reintroduced it with fond memories of its exceptional tonal characteristics. Designed in 1976/7, this guitar delivers a sweet and clear sound with deep resonance, defying its jumbo size by maintaining a remarkably balanced and non-muddy tone. Whether you're strumming chords or delicately picking melodies, the O-22C excels in every musical style.

The O shape, the very first standard soundbox design created by George himself, remains unaltered since its inception. This design, the second largest amongst Lowden models, offers a unique voice and character that sets it apart. By carefully optimising the soundbox geometry and bracing voicing, the O enhances treble response while beautifully balancing the natural bass-heavy tonal characteristics found in larger-bodied guitars.

The choice of materials further contributes to the O-22C's exceptional sound. The back and sides are crafted from rich and resonant mahogany, which adds warmth and depth to the overall tone. The soundboard features the timeless beauty of red cedar, known for its excellent responsiveness and tonal clarity. The neck, constructed with a combination of mahogany and rosewood, provides strength, stability, and a smooth playing experience.

The O-22C boasts an ebony fingerboard and a distinct GL standard neck profile, offering comfortable playability throughout the entire fretboard. With a scale length of 650mm, this guitar provides the perfect balance between string tension and ease of play. The maple binding and Rocklite-Mahogany-Maple purflings add subtle elegance to the instrument's appearance.

As for amplification, the O-22C comes equipped with the renowned LR Baggs Anthem system. This award-winning system combines LR Baggs' patented TRU MIC technology with their acclaimed Element pickup to deliver studio-quality sound in any live performance setting. The TRU MIC captures the dynamic sound of a studio microphone, mounted just beneath the bridge plate to take advantage of the PZM effect. Paired with the Element pickup, it ensures balanced frequency response, remarkable feedback suppression, and unmatched clarity for an amplified sound that rivals a professional studio recording.

Indulge yourself in the exquisite craftsmanship and unparalleled sound of the Lowden O-22C from the Original Series. Whether you're a professional musician or a passionate enthusiast, this guitar will elevate your playing experience to new heights. It's time to unleash your creativity and let the Lowden O-22C be your ultimate musical companion.
