  • What is a FENDER AVALON?!

    Hey do you guys know anything about this guitar. There does not seem to be a whole lot of info on it on the web.

    Any info is appreciated.

    I am getting the feeling that it was some sort of junky, cheapo, Fender release.

          On CMT there was a quick clip of Buck Owens playing a Fender acoustic with a telecaster neck !

            I think that was part of the "California series" put out in the late 70's early 80's. They had names like Malibu, etc. A few were actually made in California, but then production was moved to Japan. Not really bad guitars. Usually go for about $150-250 in stores and on the bay. Laminated, of course. I have an old F-65 from that era. It is really a fun guitar, sort of like a poor man's D-28. Great for campfires near the beach, or ski lodge.

              The Fender Avalon acoustic guitar was sold at the time for around $350. They're very hard to come by.
              There's a few used ones in the market ranging from $175-$300.
              Last one found in craigslist and EBay.

                So, are you from that region of Iberia or are you spiritually steeped in it's mythology? If the latter, which of the middle earth creatures do you have an affinity for? I always find regional lore most interesting of the inhabitants.
