Lowden Guitars - shop tour

My favorite woman and I eloped to Northern Ireland last week, there'll be more posts about that here on my other blog.

While we were there, we got the chance to meet George Lowden and tour his small guitar building facility in Downpatrick. I also ordered a guitar from him, it will be a custom S-25 made with a "Lucky Strike" LS redwood top. That should be ready in six months or so.

I apologize if you're on dial-up, I'm about to post a lot of pictures. Most are self-explanatory, I may add a few notes under some of the pics.


Here's a table display in the Lowden Guitar office.


This is the outside of the office located in a business park north of Downpatrick. The shop is across the parking lot.


George and I at his office.






David Pierce at the workbench, he was fun to chat with. You can tell these guys really love what they do.




This is Wes Grierson, he actually just arrived last night in Northwest Arkansas to play some shows at the university where Joy works and maybe at a local church.
































I thought this was brilliant. It's a bicycle innertube sewn to a piece of plywood. They use this to attach the back and top to the side assembly, it keeps even pressure all around. You can see it in use in one of the previous pictures.


This is George's fret slotting machine, it's been in service since the late 70's.






Two motorized radius dishes for sanding the profile to the side assembly.


He uses washing machine motors and pulleys for the motorized sanding dishes.












George at his bench.






George at his bench again, I think he was working on a pickup installation.

Looks like you need a few more tools to complete your shop, no? Welcome home, married man...!

You're totally wearing my jacket.
 
That's impossible, I shop at a local men's boutique clothing store called Old Navy.
 
What is this Old Navy you speak of?
 
um... where'd you go?
 
I've been in the crawl space under my house.

I have been doing a bit of guitar related work lately, but most of it's the sort of stuff I've blogged about before.
 
so you've been to the home where my first child was born, eh? i so wanna go. take my o25 and let george redress the frets.

i love my lowden. i wasn't going to be jealous of your trip. now i am.
 
I highly recommend it if you're ever near Downpatrick. George is a great guy, so are the guys that work for him. I'm getting anxious to get my S25, hopefully it'll be here around August.
 
george does seem like a great guy. and, at least in the past, he's been fairly active in the cult of lowden email list...
 
Hi guys I want some professional guitar tune if you have then must give me online or link thanks
Thanks & Regards,
Edward
