    I totally agree Ted, I can't believe it either. If someone were to actually come and try the guitar I am sure they would love it. I'm right in the middle of the country so hardly difficult to get to but happy to post if required.

    It’s a beauty but sadly way out of my price range. Nor am I a good enough player to justify it.

    I've got an Avalon and I not really a good enough player to do it justice, but happy to
    have it anyway.

    I think second hand ones might be quite a good investment, because Avalon's luthiers might be getting on a bit now given that they were the original workforce for Lowden guitars back in the 80's and 90's. But,as ever, do your own research.

    I wish you could afford it, but seriously the decision to buy a more expensive acoustic should be about your ears, not your current playing ability: if a guitar sounds better to you, you'll enjoy it more, and most likely play more and improve your playing

    Intellectually I total agree @ToneControl but there’s a voice inside me that says “more money than sense”.  My other hobby is cycling and I privately sneer at the “all the gear and no idea” types I see whereas I actually think that if it makes you happy and you can afford then go ahead. 

    My issue and I don’t want to derail this thread into my personal therapy :)

    my playing improved a lot when I started buying decent gear about 10 years ago

    Can’t argue with that. Certainly been more motivated to play since I bought my Faith. Amazing the difference that a well set up great sounding instrument makes.

    I have a custom H&D on classifieds. Might be interested in swap.

    That is tempting but I am really looking for a straight sale or possible p/x for a Les Paul with some cash coming my way.

    I have the irrational horn for this, but luckily (for my wallet) not the time/opportunity to make it up to Northampton. Plus I'm scared I'd really, really like it if I played it.
