Hi Guys and thanks for the welcome.
thanks for the info, I belive the J100 is one of the first to be made in N,ards the serial num says A00004 it was given to my mate Alan Mayers who worked in Avalon, he let me have it a few years ago now. What series would it be classed under ?
DADGAD is my prefered tuning at the moment, since another of my mates, Tre & Tory S, introduced me to it on one of their songs.
Hope its not to cold for you down there, I see you got a blanket of snow the other week! Your Avalon will feel well at home down there with the cold, mine has got used to the heat but it hides from the humidity. It still sounds out of this world and i have had so many offers to buy it from me. They are such a special Guitar. You made a V good choice mate, enjoy.
