Fine Lowden O22c Mahogany – Red Cedar from the Original Series. She delivers clear and crisp tones, very well-balanced and fantastic volume and sustain. And on top of that: excellent craftsmanship!
The Lowden O22c is George’s highly regarded Original series jumbo model. He developed the O-model 35 years ago and it was an instant classic. The guitar is equipped with a comfortable 43.5mm neck and easy playability on the comfortable shallow carve, low action neck and a wonderfully shaped cutaway. George and his team really know how to build great guitars. Pick up a Lowden O22c and you soon realize that it is a guitar of some considerable size. Most players are comfortable with this, but players with smaller bodies or who just prefer smaller shapes, might be best advised to look elsewhere in the Lowden range.
This is also an instrument that responds exceptionally well to what you put into it. Very responsive, in fact, and also very warm with very nice clarity. Detuning to various alternate tunings feels very stable and will produce a remarkably piano like sound with some chords. The factory installed LR Baggs Anthem makes the package complete. A truly great all-rounder whether you play at home, in the studio or on stage.
