Thread Name: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
Subject: RE: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
I hope that someday I'll be able to show you my 80's vintage Lowden 12 string. The sound is HUGE. And pretty as a picture too. I keep picking up 12 strings in stores just to see if I can find one with a sound to equal it but I haven't yet. Mine is ovankol and cedar. I can't imagine parting with it. Or my Martin 6 strings. I'm glad I have several good instruments so that whenever I shed this mortal coil both of the twins { due in February } will have something to remember their old man with. Isn't it amazing how a piece of wood and wire can get under your skin??
