Opinions needed on a Avalon AS100CE!

hi all. my son is looking at an Avalon AS100CE and we are wondering if this is a good guitar based on the fact that he has played a Lowden and loved the strength and strong sound off her. any pointers lads and ladies???? :?:

I'm working on the basis that you mean the Korean-made Silver Series, rather than Avalons made in Ireland. If I'm wrong then this is a bit of a waste of reading (apols, but I don't think the AS100CE is made anywhere other than Korea). Harmony Central has posted a couple of reviewers and, although H-C reviews can be written by idiots, these two are balanced:

If your son has played a Lowden then the feel will be similar but it's probably a bit much to expect a Korean made (with laminated back and sides) to be in the same league. Don't buy without a try is my (not very expert) advice.

thanks 1bassleft and duly noted. looking at a breedlove for him now cos was not too excited when he played the avalon. will let ye know where he goes from here. thanks

Glad that my limited info was of use. I hope that proper acousticers can chime in to give more help. It looks like you are after a quality acoustic around £600 (that's $900 on exchange rates for our American friends but, in Britain, we don't get the deals so think ~$750 in your home market).

Any suggestions? Dale (maplebaby) and Guy (acoustica1) are our hollow-body experts.
