My current stage guitar of choice is my Avalon A-100 Gold Series (S/No A00525)

I suppose you could call it a Lowden look-alike, though sonically, it’s quite different. Mahogany back and sides and a lacquered spruce top make this a very bright and zingy guitar, a little “leaner” than the Lowden, though it plays extremely well. The neck is somewhat slimmer and faster than the Lowden, and it’s a very comfortable and easy guitar to play.

Currently fitted with a Fishman1 under-saddle piezo pickup and a Fishman “Rare Earth” soundhole pickup for a big, blended signal.

She is a great guitar and has survived rainy festivals, hot days, long sets and rigorous noodling. I’ve written half of my next album on her.
