According to the Music Show Website.......
Run by the dynamic Lisa Kane and Gerry Forde, Craftine are based in Calmount Avenue, Dublin 12 and they now produce a classy guitar that has been designed and handcrafted in Ireland. If you want to know more about the myth and the legend that is Craftine, visit their stand at The Music Show
........ but no mention of Avalon ?
The Craftine.ie website shows a slideshow of the two guitars in your album but no details of who makes it. I'm curious....Are these being made by a new outfit under licence/to your design or is it a marketing arrangement ?
They're very recognisable as Avalon guitars, despite the absence of the "A" logo (or an Avalon label). I like the Kevin Ryan style bevel, but the "bling" is a bit over the top for my taste. They seem to have a one-piece neck too, not the usual neck from the Premier Series. Can you tell us more about the other models in the line up, or a bit about the construction of these new guitars and how the differ from the existing Avalon guitar range ?
By the way, I think there's a happy future waiting for this model, love the body style........
........ I'd love to see it with a full colour sunburst top and natural full depth body ! !
I was lucky enough to play the all black version and really liked the sound and feel.
Great to see new developments and wish you continued success.
