Description

Lowden's RT Signature Model combines the craftsmanship of Lowden guitars with the discerning requirements of the 1991 Orville H. Gibson Award winner, famed British guitarist Richard Thompson, to produce a top-notch instrument with some interesting style. The back and sides are gorgeously figured Ziricote and are combined with a Red Cedar top for lots of sustain and warmth, and the F35 body is light with an attractive waist bound in Figured Tasmanian Blackwood. The Richard Thompson model has a tight response and great articulation, with a low-end that is clear and controlled. The middles absolutely sing, and the trebles are well-balanced with slight bell-like overtones. Of course, if this guitar was built for Thompson, you know it's going to sound just right in lowered tunings, especially DADGAD, where the entire voice fleshes out and achieves a chorus-like effect. This guitar comes with the original Hiscox hardshell case.

One of the most well-balanced and responsive Lowden's I've played�and that's saying something. The Richard Thompson Signature performs beautifully for flatpicked accompaniment in Irish settings, or for fingerstyle singer-songwriter arrangements. I love how smooth the setup is, and am impressed by how much projection I can wrangle from such a light package.
 
An amazing guitar that I couldn't resist putting into DADGAD tuning to pay tribute to Richard Thompson. If you like Lowdens, you'll especially like this one.
