Thread Name: Lowden/Flambeau Guitars
Subject: RE: General Questions about Lowden Guitars
Thanks posters - Its good to final get to the bottom of the source of my strange but marvelous guitar - I have a Flambeau LFW-1 which was bought for me by my parents as my 1st 'proper' guitar circ 1985. As non-musos they went to a shop in Portsmouth (UK) and asked for a nice guitar!
So they couldnt tell me anything about it -they were told by the shop that it was a sub brand of yamaha!?!

After 23 years Im pleased to say it is in mint condition despite going to school/ collage/ uni/ camping etc previous posters are spot on - the non gloss finish is very classy and boy is it loud! The only changes are strings and a new nut (it came with a nasty plastic one that crumbled afer a decade of so).

Cant speek of its market price but its priceless to me!

Cheers all

Neil
