Brand New Avalon Ard Ri S1-330 Walnut Acoustic Guitar Handcrafted in Northern Ireland

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Gorgeous, hand crafted Avalon Ard Ri S1-330 acoustic guitar with a solid, deeply veined red cedar top and bookmatched solid walnut back and sides. All solid wood construction. Binding and back center stripe are beautifully done in sycamore. Ebony fingerboard, bridge and bridge pins, and tuner knobs.  2-3/8" string spacing at the saddle, and 1-3/4" at the nut.  14- 1/2" across the lower bout, it is similar in size to a OO style guitar.

This guitar, like all of the new, warranteed Avalon guitars available at The Fretted Buffalo, are built by hand at the Avalon Custom Lutherie shop in Newtownards, Northern Ireland. This is the same shop that housed the Lowden guitar company until George Lowden split more than 10 years ago. Some of the same luthiers that built Lowdens back then are building Avalons now. Like Irish cousins, there are many similarities and some differences in build and sound between the two brands, but there is no mistaking the quality and attention to detail to be found in a new Avalon guitar. 

Includes a high quality Hiscox hard shell case made in England.
