Title: Furch/Stonebridge G23CR vs Avalon A2-20?
Post by: RandyB on January 19, 2017, 11:33:11 PM
I have an OM-40R that I dearly love, but I am looking for something different to add to the stable.
Currently, I am considering a Furch/Stonebridge G23CR or a Avalon A2-20 (Used)
or another Larrivee... the 000-40R Moonwood.   
As nice as I'm sure the Larrivee sounds, the other two may be better options for fingerstyle playing.
The Avalon is closer to a Lowden or McIlroy and the Furch/Stonebridge....not sure how to describe it but I've heard both described as having more overtones and lush and expansive sound compared to the drier Larrivee sound.
This sounds pretty nice for finger style but not so much for strumming Im sure.
But, I am a fingerstyle player and that is what I think I'm looking for.
Does anyone here have experience with either or both of those guitars?
thoughts?

Furch/Stonebridge are top notch instruments.  Highly recommend them.  No experience with Avalon.

I believe Avalon are George Lowden's guitars after selling the Lowden brand.
