Default 2005 Lowden F25 $2900 - SOLD

Looking to pass-on this outstanding guitar to a friend, crony, strong acquaintance...someone who has bought guitar(s) from me, knows/trusts me.

This would most likely also be someone who knows this had been my main (and gig) guitar for approx 10 years (though you'd not no it from looking at it, it has no wear/marks/dings, etc not even a fingerprint) and that it sounds incredible, has a superbly comfortable slim neck and is setup to perfection (both ends of the fingerboard).

I have NO reason to sell this guitar other than to see it get played. It's been residing in its case for well over a year so apparently it is time, not to mention constantly seeing the case in the corner of the room where it has not moved and passing by my last (and excellent) box in the garage whilst coming and going.

So please no offense to anyone else, at this time I'm just looking to keep it real simple and more importantly keep track of the guitar.

Please call or text (772 341-6570) or email.

Jay my friend. As always thanks for stopping by.

Uh...you are kidding though, correct? You're joking like.

If not, then you have interpreted something incorrectly in my posting.

I am happily playing my two other Lowden F35s (which are the 50 spec if you get what I mean).

I am not playing the F25 because it is redundant, *apparently* it got replaced by the newer Koa/redwood I picked up a couple years ago. They sound VERY similar, because of the redwood. The redwood gives what cedar would lack (over Koa). [in comparison to rosewood/cedar]

Still though, obviously the 25 is very special and I want to keep track of it.

Well I kind of figured you had another Lowden up your sleeve. But whenever you sell one of your near and dear ones I don't think most people realize how they are pretty freakin' special. Oh, to be without debt and sole proprietor commitments.

Best of luck on your sale, somebody is going to strike some gold!

I am relieved though that its not a cutaway... then it would really hurt! ;-)

I remember this guitar...if you want an f25 this will be the best you will find at any price. Steve knows his Lowdens for sure.

Steve's guitars are all special. Especially the ones he hangs on to for extended periods. I am still trying to figure out what to sell in order to make room for the special Lowden O I am desiring.

Good luck with the sale amigo!

I recently posted about a visit I made to The Podium. While there I played an F25 and it was an amazing unbelievable guitar. It bubbled to the top as the best guitar I have ever played.

I am in *NO* position to be buying a dream guitar this season but this would be the one

I composed this reply last night, stayed up late playing my new little wonder, who needs sleep.........


I received the Lowden today, but only have had an hour or so of playing time so far. First impression, Iím blown away how strong yet responsive it is. The tone is rich, full and clear, with nice overtones, sustain that lasts forever and a sweet voice, Iím really pleased.

So why am I on the forum rather than playing, only because Steve has been so cool during the buying process. He was so concerned for it to be a good fit for me, I almost felt I was being interviewed. As the process progressed, we became friends. We spoke several times, exchanged emails and texts, just a great buying experience.

Iíve been on the lookout for a Lowden F for a while, I like cedar/rosewood, so when this one popped up, I had to make a play for it. Steve used to be a Lowden dealer and has had many Lowdens go through his hands. Since this one had been his personal guitar for 10 years, while others had come and gone, I just had to bring this one in. Sure glad I did.

Enough writing, gota go play.
