This is a great O sized Lowden from the Japan period with a highly figured back and sides tonewood most likely Ovangkol. This guitar has the classic small white beige label, Lowden headstock decal and Lowden hardcase. The owner had this to say:

“This is a George Lowden Guitar from 1980, its in great condition with only a few marks and small scraps nothing cosmetically bad. Great tones and deep rich sounds from this great and rare guitar a real find for guitarists. Has original hard case aswell, some of the vinyl is peeling off the side but case is in great structural shape.”
