So Lowden is announcing an electric guitar at Winter NAMM 2018.

Lowden GL-10 model

Price starts at 3K pounds... very pricy.

The body style sure looks familiar, don't you think?  whistling

(Lollar pickups, too...)

Gotta wish them luck, see if they get farther with this than Larrivee did (with a much less expensive guitar).

All guitars are left-handed:
1979 L-19
1992 OM-05    
2010 D-03 w/Italian Spruce top
2010 RS-4 in Candy Blue
2013 C-10 Italian Spruce/Silver Oak
2016 L-05 Custom

It's a clever guitar, and it's their own design ( like songwriting-find any "new" melodies lately)?
 the single master volume, with (I suspect) a tone pot for each pup is a nice concept.
 the options of different woods ( I feel) is a nice "personal" touch.

When I went to look for scale length, it said "ancient bog Oak, I'll assume the next one down 630 mm is the scale which is actually 24 &51/64 inches.......
Can't go too wrong with Lollar Imperial, I love them on my RS4.

String through body design is a tried and true method Godin has been using for decades as well.

I doubt I'll ever get to play one, never mind afford one.
I really do feel Matthew Larrivee has designed and put into production the finest electric guitar (RS4) money can buy...

thanks for posting though.....

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...
