Lady McMoo Help: Lowden Guitars (41) RE: Help: Lowden Guitars 28 Dec 00

I have a Lowden the same vintage and provenance as Willie-O's/ex-Rick's. It's been a wonderful instrument for me over the past 12 years or so and I still use it occasionally for live gigs.

But if you get the chance, also try a Lakewood. I bought a Sitka/Ovankol (=Bubinga) model (an M-18 - rather similar to a 00018) with a custom neck about 15 months ago and I haven't put it down since. It's a very personal opinion but, for me, it's the best guitar I've played and the current exchange rate (they're made in Germany) makes them very good value in both the US and UK.

Good luck
