I have had my Avalon D-201 for about a year now and I just thought I would list some of the comments I've received about this guitar.
Recently playing a worship set the piano player stops and said "I can hear your guitar just cutting through and it sounds AMAZING"
I play with my friend for acoustic sets and he plays a 70's Martin and he says the avalon blows his out of the water in both tone and playability
When I had my pickup installed the tech said it was the nicest guitar he has ever played
At this point everywhere I play people are in awe of the overall tonality of the guitar. I am loving this guitar more and more each day, I play a couple of hours a day and it is a joy to play all the time. I picked this guitar over all the Taylor's, Gibson's, Martin's, and Collings' I looked at.
I know its Czech but it sounds amazing. I can't wait until I can get an Irish one
