nylon strung, LR Baggs pickup system

New for 2019, the Wee Lowden Jazz is an exciting and inspired addition to George Lowden's very popular WL model guitars. It's remarkably comfortable to play with an alive and warm tone. The neck carve is superb, something that should appeal to any flat top or electric player. The pickup system is right on. LR Baggs is one of the best, and its onboard controls make it a breeze to use on stage or in the studio.

What George Lowden says:
"I designed the Jazz Series with nylon strings and an internal pick up fitted as standard so that it would feel very comfortable for classical and steel string players alike. The neck has enough width to facilitate the nylon strings but at the same time the cambered fingerboard allows for a wide variety of playing styles. Voiced for a really great acoustic response, and at the same time stiff enough for loud volume to be possible without the whole guitar over-reacting when played loud through a sound system. The tone is very natural and full with none of the over bright tones sometimes found on too lightly built classicals. I re-designed these models in 2003 to improve the acoustic voice. The Jazz is also fitted with a Fishmann Matrix Infinity pickup as standard."

CRAIG'S POV

New for 2019, the Wee Lowden Jazz is an exciting and inspired addition to George Lowden's very popular WL model guitars. I have been a huge fan of Lowden nylon Jazz models over the years and this smaller body Wee Jazz is no exception.

After spending time with the WL-35 I have become completely seduced by what it offers.

It's remarkably comfortable to play with an alive and warm tone. The neck carve is superb, something that should appeal to any flat top or electric player. The pickup system is right on. LR Baggs is one of the best, and its onboard controls make it a breeze to use on stage or in the studio. Finally, the woods and build are world class - just what you'd expect from George Lowden. All the elements come together to bring you a true bespoke guitar.

This is one of those guitars that should find a place in any collection, any arsenal, any studio - it has that special come hither quality that just beckons to be played. We have a real winner here!

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT LOWDEN GUITARS
Lowden guitars occupy a unique place in the pantheon of high-end flattops. With a loud and overtone-rich signature voice, unique construction details (including a split saddle and A-frame bracing of the upper bout), and a general vibe that differs from most classic American steel-strings, the guitars have found fans in such heavyweights as Pierre Bensusan, Paul Brady, Alex de Grassi, Richard Thompson, and many others. Lowden production began in 1974, and after several changes in management and manufacturing facilities, the guitars are now built in a small Northern Ireland shop under the direct supervision of company founder George Lowden.
