2014 is a significant year for George Lowden as he celebrates 40 years of guitar making and designing.
Following a trip to his secluded ‘Design Retreat’ overlooking the Giants Causeway in Bushmills,

receive a LR Baggs Venue DI, personalised G7th capo, guitar lesson with acoustic sensation Jon Gomm

the success of their win.
In addition to the grand prize, our valued partners G7th Capo co. and LR Baggs will provide the runner
up prizes. Full prize packages to be announced soon.
Competition entrants also have the opportunity to be playlisted by valued partner Candyrat Records
on YouTube and will automatically be entered for the chance to win various Lowden Guitars prizes
