Hi Djangojeep, and congrats for your new guitar. I think you'll enjoy your A200CE. I recently ordered a Jacques Stotzem Signature, which is in many ways similar. Very versatile and inspiring. I also ordered mine from a US dealer at an extremely reduced price. I think some of them have problems selling their Avalons because of the predominance of established US brands... too bad for American guitar players !
Mine says "Made in Ireland" though. "Made in Avalon" sounds a bit evasive to me, as if to conceal where it's really built. I don't doubt it's made in Newtownards since JB says so, but why not mention this straightaway ? There's enough confusion in the public's mind already as to where they are built, the relationship with Lowden, etc., so I think a little more clarity would be a good thing. Not that it matters to me personally, I know how fine these guitars are anyway
