About This Listing

This entirely hand crafted Avalon 'Ard Ri' (Gaelic for 'High King') is one powerhouse guitar, deep, rich and resonant in tone and perfect for DADGAD and other 'alternate' tunings! Incredible note separation up and down the fretboard, and sustain that goes on forever! Avalon is a world class builder, and they nailed it with this impeccably built masterpiece!

The Avalon shop in Newtownards, Northern Ireland is the original shop that birthed the Lowden brand. Some of the same tooling and even some of the same builders are still employed in building these incredible guitars. Decades of deep experience results in a guitar with a Celtic / Irish soul that is unlike any other. It's not for nothing that Avalon is known as 'the spiritual home of Irish guitar making'!

Built with a Sitka Spruce top and a gorgeous set of Australian Blackwood for the back and sides, the guitar is bound with Maple. The African Mahogany neck is built with 5 pieces, too strong to warp! Ebony is used for the bridge, fingerboard, heel cap and tuner buttons. This tuners are high ratio Gotoh, and turn like butter. The compensated saddle, as well as the nut, are ox bone. Nut width is 1-3/4", with string spacing at the bridge of 2-3/16". Comes with a high quality, hard shell Hiscox case as pictured.
