The Avalon Pioneer A1-20 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a glorious model but by an expert team of master luthiers who take pride in crafting exceptional instruments. Hand-built in Ireland, each model is composed of solid tonewoods, and delivered in a hard case for protection. Every model that comes out of Avalon's workshop is built to last, and you can rest assured that if you take care of you instrument, you will have a guitar for life.
As noted above, the A1-20 Auditorium acoustic guitar is built using solid tonewoods throughout, with East Indian rosewood used for the back and sides, and Western Red Cedar on top. The back and sides generate an enviable warmth infused with clarity across the top end for a delightful balance. The solid rigidity of the rosewood gives the guitar a reassuringly sturdy feel.
The cedar top makes for a delightful soundboard. With a warmer output than that of spruce, the cedar produces less power in projection, but boasts a more subtle flavour. The upshot of this is that when playing fingerstyle, cedar translates the subtle nuances of your technique with the utmost transparency - lightness of touch is accentuated beautifully.
Thanks to Avalon's AXE bracing pattern, the soundboard is reinforced to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time, preserving the longevity of this wonderful instrument whilst allowing the cedar to resonate freely.
Fitted to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is hand-carved to create a delightfully comfortable support for the fretting hand to glide along. Joined with the neck is a sublime ebony fingerboard, which offers unparalleled luxury for your fingers as they explore each fret.
Beauty in the tiniest detail
The soundhole is adorned by an ornate rosette, whilst pear binding encircles the outer edge of the top to create a seamless connection between the rosewood and cedar. The natural grain of the tonewoods is proudly displayed for all to see, whilst a slender yet resilient coating of nitrocellulose lacquer allows the finish to age gracefully.
Every Avalon Pioneer L1-20 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar in Naturalis supplied with a standard case to protect your pride and joy whether at home, or on the go. As noted above, take care of this wonderful guitar, and you will have a faithful lifelong companion.
