The Wee Lowden is the latest offering from George Lowden is whimsically named but make no mistake, it is a Lowden through and through. Easily the smallest guitar Lowden offers, the Wee Lowden is a 14-fretter with a diminutive 13″ width, but 4″ in depth. A short 24″ scale makes the guitar a joy to play, and while you might think “parlor” in terms of sound, think again … it sounds like a Lowden, with solid lows, ringing overtones and a terrific, complex tonal palette. You won’t believe your ears. This example — the only lefty in existence as of right now — was built to Lowden’s 35 specs, with a gorgeous dark AAAA redwood top, AAAA East Indian Rosewood back and sides, flamed binding, 5-piece neck, Gotoh tuners and abalone rosette. A stunningly beautiful guitar. I love it. Lifetime warranty and a Lowden Hiscox case.
