The Avalon brand was used by the Henry Stadlmair Co. in New York. Not many Oscar Schmidt "Avalon" guitars appear on the market.

The guitar has the beautiful decalcomania "gold leaf" rosette, which is in great condition too. It has a fresh neck set, a new nut and new bridge pins. Crackfree top, three repaired back cracks and two tiny cracks in the sides, all solid and stable. New vintage style tuners.
This is a great player with a balanced tone, strong bass and singing trebles. Comes with an chipboardcase.
