Thread Name: Lowden/Flambeau Guitars
Subject: RE: Lowden/Flambeau Guitars
I have a Flambeau LFW2 which I bought new in the early eighties from Ivor Mairantz (as best as my memory serves).
I play it occasionally - with long gaps between intense sessions.
I MUST put some new strings on now.
I am sure I used to use D'Addario XL Red strings but they seem to have vanished now.
It has a rectangular label but where serial number should be is just a signature. Is this significant?
I recently emailed Lowden guitars to be (politely) informed by Johnny Lowden that he has no knowledge of any past connection between Lowden and Flambeau.
How strange.
Any suggestions?
