I bought this beautiful guitar straight from the Newtownards Factory, where it was hand built, in November 2016. I had a Fishman Ellipse Blend pickup, microphone and pre-amp installed before delivery (£400 extra).
The guitar was purchased to replace my beautiful little Avalon S32 because I wanted the fuller sound that the bigger body delivered (my son has an L32C, an older version of the same guitar).
Unfortunately, although the sound is sublime, I find that the guitar is just a bit too big for me to play comfortably and so have decided to stick to the beloved S32 and reluctantly part with this beauty.
The quality of materials used, and the superb craftsmanship will probably mean that this is the last guitar you’ll ever want or need.
Solid East Indian Rosewood body and sides
Solid Spruce top with a tasteful Abalone (mother of pearl?) sound-hole rosette
Fishman Ellipse Blend pickup with blend-able microphone and endpin jack socket.
Unblemished Avalon-supplied hard case.
First to try will buy.
Price new would be £3650
