Los Angeles, CA (March 4, 2019) -- This new acoustic guitar brand – Sheeran By Lowden – marks the culmination of collaboration with premier guitar maker Lowden, based in Northern Ireland, and aims to make quality guitars in Ireland with great playability and tone more accessible for aspiring musicians.

At launch, the Sheeran by Lowden acoustic guitar range features eight individual models across two small body sizes familiar from the Lowden range, known as the S and the Wee Lowden, both played by Ed Sheeran himself. The guitars have been designed by Luthier George Lowden for the player, with a careful choice of sustainably-sourced wood species including naturally-fallen trees and reclaimed spruce, for uncompromising tone and playability.

To ensure that the Sheeran by Lowden brand continues to deliver Lowden’s high-quality craftsmanship with an approachable and accessible ethos, George Lowden developed new production methodologies featuring aerospace engineering to create custom tooling required for these innovative methods.
