Finally got my Avalon into the guitar tech.
I had a bone nut and saddle installed, and he adjusted the setup to how it was on my Lowden. Also installed a KK PW Mini.
I also had the tech spread the strings out a little on the nut. The only thing I really don;t like about the Avalon is the aslightly narrower nut. I know it is very slight, but it is noticable.
Anyway, the guy really liked the guitar, and asked where I got it. When I told him what I paid, he was amazed. I think that high praise from a guy who gets to work on a lot of very nice guitars, ranging from vintage Martins to high-dollar boutique guitars.
