Ed Sheeran has conquered popular music over the last decade. He's sold over 100 million singles, won four Grammys and even has an MBE. Now he's taking the guitar world by storm alongside Irish boutique luthiers Lowden Guitars in a dream collaboration.
Sheeran By Lowden build unique acoustics for aspiring, determined and creative musicians. Packed full of rich character and tone, the Wee Lowden is based on the very first guitar Lowden built for Sheeran after his extensive use of their acoustics on the album 'X' released in 2014.
This is a small body acoustic, similar to a parlour shape. Perfect for taking with you on the road or picking up for a quick play whenever you walk past at home. The Wee Lowden produces a glistening, crystal clear sound, ideal when paired with vocals.
Parlour guitars have been used extensively since the 18th century in duets or for singer/songwriters because of the way they intertwine with the vocals.
Body and Neck
Owner and founder of Lowden Guitars, George Lowden, helped create the distinctive style of these acoustics. Its unique bevelled soundhole provides excellent low end control, especially when combined with the outstanding LR Baggs Element undersaddle pickup. Hook up the Wee Lowden to an acoustic amp or PA system for larger gigs.
Standard specs across the range include a warm, smooth mahogany neck, an ebony fingerboard and a matching bridge, so you'll be comfortable playing for extended periods of time. You get the pick of a solid wood top and body. This particular model is made of a rich Santos rosewood body and snappy-sounding sitka spruce top.
At a 24" scale length, the Wee Lowden is great for fast playing as the jump between frets is minimal. That also means it's an excellent choice for smaller hands.
All Sheeran By Lowden guitars are built using carefully selected tonewoods to get the most out of the materials. They're only sourced from naturally felled trees. Each time a tree is used, another is planted in its stead to keep the environment happy.
The reliable TUSQ nut is a substitute for many a guitar's real bone nut and functions as well as, if not better than the regular appointment.
