Introducing the limited edition ‘Tour Edition’
As seen on stage in the hands of Ed Sheeran, this limited edition model celebrates Ed’s fourth world tour, ‘Mathematics’ and is now available to pre-order in our online store.
SHEERAN GUITARS BY LOWDEN.
Sheeran by Lowden are a range of newly designed guitars born out of a friendship between Ed Sheeran and George Lowden.
They offer aspiring musicians a guitar with great playability and tone using materials with high sustainability credentials, all designed and built in Ireland.
THE SHEERAN RANGE
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 Wee.’ 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.
GEORGE & ED.
“It’s been a dream to work with Lowden to create not just a signature guitar but a range of world class guitars. These guitars are made in Ireland with beautiful wood and there’s nothing else like them.” - Ed Sheeran
MEET THE MAKER. GEORGE LOWDEN.
George Lowden’s career began at the age of 10. Desperately wanting to play a guitar but with no money to buy one, he decided to build it for himself. When he later decided to make guitars for a living, he chose not to copy existing designs but pioneered his own ‘curvy’ soundbox shapes, a new internal bracing and more natural satin finish.
It is the attention to these unique and many other seemingly small details which gave George Lowden’s guitars the distinctive sound that is instantly recognisable today.
Sheeran by Lowden represents the next step for George in what has been over four decades of listening to players, working together with them to provide the very best acoustic guitars possible.
ED SHEERAN. BORN TO PLAY.
Ed Sheeran, began his recording career in 2004 and has since sold more than 38 million albums and 100 million singles worldwide.
He was given his first Lowden as a present from Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol in 2012 but has always been a huge admirer of the brand. He wrote five songs for the album X on that guitar as well as recording them with it.
Ed believes that the Lowden guitars are as equally good for recording as well as playing live and this has help inspired the collaboration to help aspiring musicians have the chance to own their own Lowden.
