The Avalon Pioneer A2-20 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a delightfully crafted hand-built instrument. The Ireland-based team at Avalon is composed of master luthiers with nearly 100 years' experience between them, a team dedicated to making instruments of outstanding quality. Not only are they fine craftsman, but they are accomplished, you can rest assured that with each guitar that they produce, it is sure to offer a lifetime of fulfilment.
The team at Avalon have developed a world-renowned reputation for producing exceptional instruments, and the A2-20 is part of this developing standard. Shaped to the auditorium body profile, the A2-20 balances comfortability and performance perfectly, making it a great choice for both soloists and ensemble performers.
The body benefits from solid tonewoods throughout, and the more that the A2-20 is played, the more the wood matures to develop a character unique to each model. The body back and sides are built using East Indian rosewood, which is highly prized by guitarists due to its ability to produce a warm mid-range infused with a soft low-end and sweetened treble. The rosewood establishes a reassuringly sturdy playing feel, encouraging you to perform enthusiastically.
Paired with the rosewood is a solid spruce top, which is a fantastic soundboard that projects crisp tones with an energetic blast. The soundboard is reinforced using Avalon's hand-carved AXE bracing pattern, which prevents unwanted buckling or warping over time whilst allowing the top to resonate unhindered. Spruce is a fantastic all-rounder that suits both fingerstyle performers and flat-pickers who like to dig in to achieve a greater dynamic delivery.
Connected to the body is a robust yet remarkably smooth-playing mahogany neck. Carved and finished by hand, the neck allows your fretting hand to glide along with ease. 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 sycamore binding encircles the outer edge of the top to create a seamless connection between the rosewood and spruce. 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 A2-20 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar in Natural is 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.
