The Avalon Pioneer A2-20C Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic Guitar in Natural is an exceptional guitar, hand-built by master luthiers in Ireland. With nearly 100 years' experience between them, the team at Avalon have gained a reputation around the world for their fastidious approach to guitar building, and the A2-20C is a shining example of their abilities. Whether you're an amateur or a professional, this beauty will provide a lifetime of enjoyment for anyone lucky enough to call it theirs.
The Avalon Pioneer A2-20C is built using solid tonewoods throughout, establishing a lush timbre that only gets better the more the guitar is played. The body back and sides are built using Indian rosewood, a tonewood that is revered amongst guitarists due to its mid-range energy - which is arguably less pronounced than mahogany -, which is supported by a fuller low-end and sparkling highs.
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. Thanks to the cutaway body profile, upper fret access is within easier reach.
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 A2-20C Auditorium Cutaway 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.
