Hi. As I have mentioned in prior threads, I find the Avalon/Lowden sound quite similiar to the Goodall sound. Avalons/Lowdens are known for their great responsiveness, overtones,sustain, and woodiness. Goodalls are also known for their responsiveness, sustain, and overtones. But to my ears, Goodalls have less woodiness than Avalons/Lowdens. With the Goodalls, I seem to hear the strings, rather than the wood. That makes the sound of a Goodall almost too jangly at times for my taste. I prefer the cedar or redwood topped Goodalls. I prefer cedar or redwood on most guitars, including Avalon. Just wondering if anyone else has made this same tone comparison.
