Wow they are making some great affordable guitars these days. I think this designed with Taylor designs in mind with a Lowden aesthetic. A solid spruce top, solid rosewood back, laminate rosewood sides and mahogany neck with osewood fingerboard. Lovely sound, great seperation of notes and resonance. Godd for fingerpicking or strumming but hit it too load and it seems to distort a bit. Little known brand hand made in Slovakia.
