This is a great 30th Anniversary Lowden with that figured Pearwood back and sides. Apologies for the low resolution pics, we are trying to obtain better ones. Nevertheless, the former owner had this to say:

“This is number 16 of the 30-issue George Lowden 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Guitar. Ungigged and rarely but lovingly played, this guitar is in mint condition. And it plays and sounds like a dream.

Made from beautifully figured pearwood for the back and sides, it also features a high-grade sitka spruce top, mahogany/rosewood neck, ebony fingerboard, walnut binding and Gotoh machines..

It has also been fitted at the Lowden workshop with a high quality Headway pickup. It comes in an unmarked hardshell lite-flite case and has full certification and provenance paperwork. Its final setup was tested and adjusted by George himself. I was there when he did it!”
