George Lowden initially began to develop his concert classical designs in 1987. He has been making concert classical guitars since then as part of his personal custom guitar making. This design forms the basis for the Lowden Jazz model.
Based on both the ’S’ model, the Jazz model is a nylon string ‘cross-over’ model that is designed to be used for a variety of playing styles. The neck is wide enough to accommodate the nylon strings and yet the ebony fingerboard is cambered to allow easy playing for steel string players. The voicing of the guitar allows for a great acoustic response while not being overly lively and overpowering while amplified. All Jazz models also come with a Fishmann Matrix Infinity pickup system as standard.
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.
