    This is the Lowden WL-35 Fanned Fret model from Lowden guitars – the little cannon that could! A shorter 24”- 25.5″ scale guitar, the so-called Wee model is built with a sinker redwood top and East Indian rosewood back and sides. The Wee truly packs a punch thanks to its internal bracing that sets the guitar up for maximum bass response, sweet mid-tones and crystal clear high notes. The modern fanned fret construction ensures perfect intonation, better tuning stability and an excellent responsive low end in alternate tunings.

    The beginning of the Wee Lowden story took place when Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody contacted George and asked if they could make a small-bodied guitar as a present for Ed Sheeran. Having had the idea of making something in that vein to add to the range for a while anyway, the request kick-started the process that has led to the release of the Wee Lowden. It wasn’t just a question of shrinking an established model in the range; on the contrary. It was a painstaking process which saw George Lowden lock himself away at a retreat on the Irish coast. Four days on a row he drew designs for the body shape and pondered over the bracing, woods, bridge position and many of the other variables before building the first prototypes. The final result is not only one of Ed Sheeran’s favorite songwriting guitars… And with the fanned fret option, she truly is every small guitar lover’s dream!

    She is a very comfortably, loud sounding, easy playing guitar in a small package. Add and LR Baggs Anthem for example and hook her up to an amp will mean that you can perform anywhere with this one. Click on the Soundcloud logo for a sound impression.
