    Lowdens are amazing guitars. what is your question about this one? And are you looking at a new one? There have been some changes in the design of the small body over the last few years.

    I have a recent S-25.

    The scale is 24.something, and it sounds just like a small version of my O-10. A brilliant, clear sound full of overtones. Like it was made by the Elves of Rivendell.

    Great, great guitar.

    I'm guessing the 32 has a spruce top? The 25 is cedar on EIR.

    Since I first heard one years ago, Lowdens remain my favorite acoustic guitars.

    I heard Peter Finger play the living daylights out of one once. Blew my mind.

    Just bought an F32C. Got hooked on the sound of Lowden's listening to Richard Thompson. It's a lot of guitar for the $$, and no more expensive than a midrange Martin or Taylor.

    I ended up getting it. Finally sold my Bourgeois, and got the Lowden. It does have EIR and Sitka. It really is an amazing guitar, particularly given its size. And, I love how the strings connect throught the split saddle.[​IMG]

    Very cool. Lowdens really are remarkable instruments, and there is something truly special about his smaller bodied models.
