GUEST,jonesey Loudon guitars (Lowden) (57* d) RE: Loudon guitars 29 Apr 02

Would all you Lowden guys be so kind as to give us poor Yank cousins an idea of the prices? I just came back from a visit to the Lowden website. Seems the 'O' series is the 'beast' of choice. Didn't even bother to look at the 'D' series as the ones I mentioned before were all O's. Read the bio and Mr. Lowden developed an 'A' bracing pattern for his design. How does this differ from the X pattern developed by Martin? There was a builder years ago named Michael Gurien who used a 'fan' bracing pattern(ala classical guitars) to great success(I owned 2 of them). It's unfortunate his factory burned down as his guitars sounded great, though were a little difficult to play. They are highly prized here in the States, however and their owners are fiercely loyal.
