Pick Of The Week: Lowry Guitars

Earlier this year we announced that we have added Lowry Guitars to our roster of acoustic luthiers. Since, we have received two spectacular guitars, which justifiably been chosen as this week's Pick of The Week.
Originally from Northern Ireland, Andrew has been building acoustic guitars professionally in the north of France since 2014. With a doctorate in engineering, he benefits from valuable knowledge of acoustic systems gained during a first career in voice recognition technology.
He builds in a contemporary style, aiming for simplicity and elegance of form, and a tone rich in sustain and harmonics influenced by the Irish tradition of guitar-making. He currently offers three models (Braid, Slemish and Carrick), named for prominent landmarks in his native county of Antrim, Northern Ireland. Each instrument is truly unique, not only in the choice of materials, but in how they are prepared and worked, be it adapting the bracing for the characteristics of each top, or carving the neck according to the client's preferences.
Our first delivery from Lowry Guitars included a Carrick Model in African Ebony & Swiss Moon Spruce, alongside a Braid in Koa & Swiss Moon Spruce. You can find out more about both of these instruments below, and hear them in action.
