This is a stunning 3 bevelled top of the range brand new Avalon from the Arc range. It has a select Alpine Spruce top and a stunning Cocobolo back & sides with some amazing custom appointments. These custom features are a curved fingerboard extension, some Gotoh 510 tuners, a front and back ebony headstock faceplate, mitred back strip and a custom rosette design with Abalone, Australian blackwood and Ebony.

Not only is this guitar an absolute beauty to look at it sounds incredible with deep lows and crisp highs. An astonishingly good sounding instrument from the Avalon guys that has literally blown our minds. It's a Jumbo body shape, so it's the larger Avalon shape which is effectively the 'Lowden' O shape, but it has the rounded cutaway making high fret access and playability much easier. Also, the bevels at strategic points across the body make it even more ergonomic and it just fits right into the body thereby making it almost feel like a smaller body design. The benefits of the Jumbo shape are incredibly apparent from strumming or fingerpicking the first chord however. This thing sings and the wood choices and upgrades giving such depth and body to the sound.
