So, ages ago I asked for some advice on acoustics, and duely went a'searching online, and in my local shops, and, though there were some very nice guitars, nothing made me go in the way I wanted.
So I continued to search online, and came across a company called Avalon and became intrigued. I emailed them, and the guy who responded was very pleasant, and informative.
I did however get a bit down-heartened when i discovered that hardly anywhere stocks them, and that we would have to travel all the way to ireland to get a feel for them.
But.........we went to my cousins wedding and the guy who was leading the worship (it was a "modern church" service), was using an Avalon guitar! Went up and had a chat with him, and he was like "yeh sure have a go, see how you like it!"
Then after playing it and becoming smitten, I then wandered into a couple of shops on Denmark street whilst up in London, and discovered some more Avalon guitars! Once again I played and became even more smitten!
So a trip to ireland is on the cards to chat to the Avalon guys and have a semi-custom acoustic made (based on one of their models, but my choice of woods, neck, electrics etc.)
So a thank you for your suggestions, I tried to include them, but became so smitten with the Avalon guitars i didn't get the opportunity to try <i>all</i> of them out (though I did try a fair few!).
I will post more updates after I go to Ireland, and when I have a new acoustic!
