Default Avalon Dolphin

Newest arrival plays and sounds better than it looks. Upgraded with Pigtail Music super light tail piece and Tone Pros locking studs.






The Perfect Pair!!

Isn't that Steve Rowen's old Avalon?
Nicest one I've ever seen...

Yes it is. Thanks. Out of all the Avalons it's my favorite ever, even before I owned it. Just a killer guitar and not just in looks that tailpiece really makes it sing.

Indeed. I told Dave at the time, "Make me one just like Steve's!"
I think he did an ok job of it.



Steve was a good guy.

Is that Dave on the far left and Steve on the right?
Dave always does an excellent job on whatever he builds, nice guitar.
Heard Steve was a genius and an excellent machinist. His guitar is in good hands, I will cherish it for years to come.

Thanks, I've wanted this guitar ever since I saw it on the Robin Website and now I finally have it. I just can't believe how lucky I am.
