Thread Name: Lowden/Flambeau Guitars
Subject: RE: General Questions about Lowden Guitars
Hi all,

I'm another googler who found this thread and not much else. At least one of these guitas found its way down under. Mine is a flambeau LFW-5 that I bought for A$300 from a bluegrass picker who had had the holes in the bridge bored out so it would take heavy strings, such was his style of playing. However it wan't enough and he bought a martin instead. The Flambeau however, (now with light guage stringsas intended) rocks on. And man is it loud!I've played jazz, blues, country and even a bit of rock and roll with it. It stays in tune on and off stage, sounds great for delicate fingerpicking and packs a punch when you wanna ACDC it up.
