My new A800 arrived this afternoon.
I was not at home since I was at the office, but my wife was there.
As soon as I could I left the office to see the guitar for the very first time and to check any potential crack.
So, I opened the case and immediately a strong odour came from the case.
My first impression:
Very small. Then I realized that my last two guitars are Jumbo models. And I bought the Ibanez in... 1978. More than 30 years ago. Phew, I've been playing almost exclusively Jumbos. My last one was my L32.
I tuned it, and just tested a bit.
, which obliges me to sit in a different position. But sounds very clear. Very clear. Easy from the very first moment. I know it will also be 'my' guitar, as well as the L32.
And the sound volume is really lower than for the the L32.
Why another Avalon?
When I bought my L32 I played Gibson, Martin, Fender, Yamaha and do not know how many others. But the L32 was completely different. The sound was superb compared to the others, even much more expensive guitars.
So, when I saw this Master Luthier in the web site, I supposed that the quality of the guitar and the sound should be best class. And I wanted to have more small guitar at least once.
So, I bought this Avalon. Sincerely I don't know how it will sound. Time will say. But the very first minutes have created very high expectations.
Now I have a problem. Which one should I use next? L32 or A800
Thanks, JB. Everything has been easy.
