Rohan Lowe of Lewes

    With the most stunning, straight-grained rosewood, the beautiful back is three-piece with lovely purflings and maple bindings; a real feast for the eyes.

    European spruce with a really silky character and showing stacks of medullary. The geometric rosette is one of the most lovely and effective of any maker and along with double purfling, gives the front of the guitar a highly elegant and refined appearance.

  • Condition:

    Having had one very careful owner, this instrument is in condition as new and is a supremely attractive guitar.
    All shellac, french-polished.

  • Comments:

    This instrument was made shortly after a period when Rohan Lowe had Julian Bream's 1940 Hauser in his workshop. He was very impressed by the depth of sound of that guitar which seeped into the making of this one.
    Without doubt one of the best of many Rohan Lowe guitars I have ever played, the one has real depth of bass, richness of middle and a very clear yet sweet treble. It is delightful and very rewarding to play. So with super timbers, looks to die for and a gorgeous sound, this comes highly recommended.
