ACOUSTIC EXPO 2014: The Avian Dove is a parlour guitar designed by one of the USA's top luthiers, Michael Bashkin of Boulder, Colorado.
Available in maple, mahogany and Indian rosewood with a sitka spruce top, these guitars feature all-solid wood construction. Left handed models are also available, as are active electronics, with a hard case as standard.
With a 24.9" scale length, a 13.5" lower bout and a 1.75" nut width, the Dove is a surprisingly versatile guitar, excelling at dust bowl blues, Brazilian acoustic jazz and intimate singer-songwriter moments equally.
The Dove is also an excellent recording guitar with a balanced tonal spectrum that all but negates the need for EQ.
"This really is a little firecracker of a guitar" – David Mead
