Sapele Spruce ‘Avalon’

This Avalon model is fairly subtle in its aesthetic appearance, but the tried and tested combination of sapele back and sides with spruce top on this mini jumbo-sized guitar, was born with a beautiful warm, rounded tone and great projection that is sure to only improve with age. The guitar was commissioned by my good friend and fellow finger picking folkie Martha Tilston. I highly recommend you check out Martha’s music if you are not already familiar with it – and if you are lucky enough to catch one of her live performances, you might also get to hear the Sapele Spruce ‘Avalon’!
