W-Series or S-series: find your perfect fit

The W-Series and S-Series are popular collections in the Sheeran by Lowden range, and both are a symphony of versatility, ready to cater to your unique playing style. But the burning question is, which series will be the perfect match for you?

In this blog, we'll delve into the delightful dilemma of choosing between the W-Series and S-Series.

The W-Series: Compact and versatile

The Sheeran by Lowden W-Series is based on Ed’s first custom Lowden (the model where it all started, or ‘where the story began'). The "W" stands for "Wee," and that's precisely what these guitars are – compact, portable, and perfect for musicians who want a versatile companion for learning and playing on the go.

One of the key features of the W-Series is its body shape design, contributing to the guitar's portability and playability. The smaller size makes it easier to carry around, whether you're strumming on the beach, singing by the campfire, or playing on the stage.

Most W-Series models come with onboard LR Baggs electronics, meaning you can take your melodies from intimate acoustic sessions to bigger stages with ease. These models are an excellent choice for both emerging musicians and professionals that enjoy playing in different environments.

The S-SERIES: a step beyond

For those who desire a bit more from their acoustic experience, the Sheeran by Lowden S-Series takes everything you love about the W-Series and adds an extra layer of charm. Based on the Lowden S size, the S-Series gives you a traditional Lowden look and feel.

One noticeable difference in the S-Series is the extended scale length, allowing you to have more room to explore the fretboard. Whether you're strumming or fingerpicking, the S-Series offers room for creative expression.

Another feature that sets the S-Series apart is the soundbox bevel. This seemingly subtle addition provides enhanced comfort - so if you're the type of musician who can't resist those long jam sessions, the S-Series might be your perfect match.

All S-Series models come with high-quality LR Baggs electronics – these guitars are made for performers who thrive on the stage, ready to captivate their audience with every strum and every note.

Making Your Choice: The Personal Touch

So, the big question remains: W-Series or S-Series? The answer is personal and depends on your style, needs, and where you see your musical journey taking you.

If you're all about portability, playing on the go, and sharing your music with the world, the W-Series could be your perfect partner. Its compact design make it a practical choice for beginners and seasoned musicians alike.

On the other hand, if you're looking to take your playing to the next level, explore intricate melodies, and perform on the big stage, the S-Series offers that extra magic. The extended scale length and soundbox bevel bring added comfort and possibilities to your music.

In the end, it's not just about the guitar; it's about you and your musical aspirations. Whichever series you choose, Sheeran by Lowden offers an array of exceptional instruments to help you craft your unique sound. Head over to the W-Series and S-Series collections to explore these extraordinary guitars and find the one that resonates with your heart and soul.
