just taken delivery of a new 2018 Avalon L2-20 lefty which I bought on eBay at
a very competitive price.
The guitar is jumbo-sized – with solid
spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. The finishing and components are
top notch and, although I normally play smaller guitars, it felt very
comfortable from the off.
It is early days yet, but I would say
it is at least on a par with my other handcrafted guitars from Lowden and BSG.
I’ve heard that Avalon are supposed to be more of a flatpickers guitar, but the
L2-20 suits my light fingerstyle playing to a tee. The Lowden heritage is obvious
I understand that seller is currently
listing the same lefty model on eBay in a cutaway form and may also shortly be
listing a slightly smaller version. Details (including contact info) can be
found by doing an eBay search on “Avalon Lefty”. I understand some "righties" may also possibly be available.
Do any other forum members have any experience of comparing Lowdens with Avalons?
