So it's possible there is another hand carved Avalon.

There's a few more arch top Avalons hanging behind him. I doubt those were all hand-carved. By the end of 1994 Robin had already made a bunch of "machine-carved" Avalons + some "flat-top" Avalons.

If #1 was sold 1/28//94 then this picture would have been taken before that which raises the question is that hand carved #3 in his right hand because it would have to have been made before 1/28/94?????

How do you know that is #1 that Dave is holding?
Does the wood figuring match?
How can you tell that the guitars he is holding have a hand-carved top?
Why wouldn't these guitars have been made mid-1994?
What is the date of that Vintage Guitar Magazine?

Maybe Dave can answer your question?

The one in David's left hand looks like the same top as mine #1. I'm assuming the picture was from the winter Nam Show in January of 94. Although I could be wrong.
