An excellent Lowden F model, and maybe one of the best color matches between a guitar's soundboard and the back and sides (at least when such different woods are finished natural). Redwood tops are known for responding to a very light touch, and this Lowden does that, but thanks to the large koa body there's also lots and lots of headroom if you're a player whose style includes a heavier right hand at times. There's one ding in the top (check the bottom right of photo #11 for a closeup) that's been very well touched up. Almost no other marks to the finish, just a few light scuffs to the clear pickguard. Both tonally and visually this is all Lowden, all the way, there's no other guitarmaker who builds guitars quite like this.
