Avalon Americana S320A 12 Fret Blues

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The brand new, hand crafted Avalon Americana S320 is a small bodied, OO style, all solid wood acoustic guitar. Built by world class Avalon craftsmen in Northern Ireland, the Avalon Americana series is designed to evoke the aura of vintage US flat tops.

The Avalon Americana has classic features, including the 12 frets to the body neck, slotted headstock with open style butterbean Gotoh tuners, and a pyramid bridge made with solid ebony. String spacing is about 2 5/16 inches at the saddle and about 1 3/4 inches at the nut, quite comfortable for most finger style players.

The back and sides are solid East Indian rosewood, the top is solid spruce, and the neck is mahogany. The guitar is beautifully bound in solid sycamore. There is some figuring in the beautifully finished sunburst top. The lower bout is about 14.5 inches wide. There is zero plastic on this guitar – nothing but high quality solid woods and top of the line tuners.

The high quality workmanship and detail on this instrument is top rank. Inside and out, it is clean and tight; a lot of attention was paid during construction to make the inside look as good as the outside. This is a direct contrast to early American production guitars, where saw marks and glue drips were often very plainly visible inside the instruments. The finish is very well done, with a light amount of sinking in to the wood pores indicating a thin layer intended to protect the instrument but allow it to freely resonate, and evokes the darker sunburst patterns used on American vintage acoustics.

The Avalon Americana 320A has an unmistakably bluesy, warm tone, which must be why the Avalon web site calls it their “12 Fret Blues Model”!

A Hiscox hardshell case is included.
