Any piece from Lowden really imbues a set of magic to it. This small little wonder captures that in spades. It is almost as if you are transported to the lush green hills of Ireland when playing this beauty and we honestly had a very hard time putting her down. 
Constructed from master grade driftwood red cedar this top has a wonderful warmth and complexity to it that works perfectly with finger style and arrpegiated playing. The compression head room is extremely high and for a small bodied instrument you can still attack this soundboard without loosing volume. The cocobolo back and sides are not only stunning visually but have a sonic warmth and punch that is outstanding. They really propel the tone forward and there is a wonderful roundness to the tone without loosing any clarity.
The 12 fret design brings an extra level of bass as well as makes this an extremely comfortable instrument to play.
The craftsman at Lowden didn't stop with the tone woods and 12 fret though...the inlay, binding, purfiling, and every other detail are exquisite on this piece. The rosette really is a work of art on its own and the subtle binding details are stunning.
This is a true work of art and we are thrilled to present this piece to all of our great friends out there.
