George Lowden worked closely with world renown guitarist Richard Thompson on the creation of this signature model. Built on Lowden’s F body size, a mid jumbo with cutaway, they added the premium tonewood combination of Cedar and Ziricote for amazing clarity for fingerstyle and flatpicking with the full body tone and response Richard Thompson was looking for. Perfect for DADGAD down tuning or a heavy rhythm strum, this guitar excels for the stage, recording studio or your living room. Other featured include Figured Tazmanian bindings, Ablone rosette, 5-piece Mahogany, Rosewood and Walnut neck, mulit wood purflings, Gotoh Gold 510 tuners with Ebony buttons and more.
Includes deluxe Hiscox hardshell case and lifetime warranty.

George Lowden about the Richard Thomspon RT model:
“It has been my great pleasure to get to know Richard over the years and to enjoy his playing! At Lowden we only consider a signature model for someone who has played our guitars consistently for a long time Richard has been playing Lowden guitars for many many years and we are honored to introduce this model! Richard chose this wood combination and other specifications because of the really full-bodied loud and clear response of Ziricote and cedar.”
