Grabbed this on TradeMe recently. 'Tis a Levinson LG-223, which seems to be the most affordable of the Levinson acoustics. Not much info about these online, so I'm not sure where these are made (though likely China with finish/setup done it Switzerland). Plays very nicely and seems very resonant (feels dumb to say — it's an acoustic — but the neck feels more lively in hand than most other acoustics I've picked up recently). All the usual suspects as far as materials go — solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides. Sounds nice and balanced, albeit a bit clangy with brand new strings. Seems to have a thin nitro finish so it should age nicely. I think it's a very pretty guitar; the headstock in particular is very nice, IMO.
