Circa 1992. Left-handed, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, small amount of very minor scratches. -
Designed so that it would feel very comfortable for classical and steel string players alike. The neck has enough width to facilitate the nylon strings but at the same time the cambered fingerboard allows for a wide variety of playing styles. The Lowden Jazz is fitted with an board pickup as standard. The soundbox is voiced for a really great acoustic response, and at the same time stiff enough to prevent the whole guitar from overreacting when played loud through a sound system. The tone is very natural and full with none of the over bright tones sometimes found on too lightly built classicals. I re-designed these models in 2003 to improve the acoustic voice. The Jazz is also fitted with a Fishmann Matrix Infinity pickup as standard."
