THE TOUR EDITION
Introducing the ‘Tour Edition’ limited edition guitar.
As seen on stage in the hands of Ed Sheeran, this limited edition model celebrates Ed’s fourth world tour, ‘Mathematics’.
The Sheeran Guitars Tour Edition model is available to order in a ‘W’ size body, featuring Ed’s preferred choice of Indian Rosewood back and sides, and a solid Sitka Spruce top often used on his stage guitars along with an LR Baggs EAS VTC pickup system.
To further underscore the relationship between this special model and the live music that has inspired it, each guitar will come with a limited edition ‘Mathematics’ tour inspired strap, exclusive to this model.
THE S SERIES
Based on the successful Lowden S (small) body, The Sheeran by Lowden S models deliver a surprisingly deep voice despite their size. Beyond a choice of solid wood tops, the S series features a selection of woods, a cutaway, and soundbox bevel.
THE W SERIES
Based on the Lowden WL (Wee Lowden) body size as originally designed for Ed Sheeran, the W Series models offer a compact feel without compromising in tone over larger guitars.
At launch, the Sheeran by Lowden range features eight individual models across two small body sizes familiar from the Lowden range, the ‘S’ and the ‘W’ series. Ed Sheeran plays both player friendly sizes which are ready and responsive at home, on stage, and on the road.
George Lowden designed the guitars for the player, for uncompromising tone and playability with a careful choice of woods to ensure innate natural beauty. An ‘almost bare’ finish enhances this.
Featuring a choice of solid wood tops, the range offers a selection of options including cutaways and soundbox bevel
TOOLED BY AEROSPACE ENGINEERS. DRIVEN BY DESIGN.
George Lowden has developed new production methodologies in partnership with another long tradition of the island, aerospace, to develop customized jigging and tooling required for these innovative methods. The result of aerospace precision in acoustic instrument building is an entirely new range of guitars, built in Ireland.
More than ever the disciplined integration of the old and the new is essential as continuing the use of certain hand skills is still considered vital by George, including the use of Japanese hand chisels to ensure that all the guitars have a recognisably unique and consistent voice.
