Visited bristol today and paid a visit to Hobgoblin Music. Tried out an Avalon A100 made in Ireland – mahogany and spruce = nice. Also tried a Jimmy Moon 0001 acoustic guitar in spruce and maple = nice too! Nicest of all was a Jimmy Moon 0002CE with a cutaway and a Fishman matrix Infinity. Spruce and maple = very nice indeed! The staff were great; helpful, relaxed and knowledgeable especially Dan (I think) who joined in with “Ashokan Farewell” and “Sheebeg n Sheemore” on fiddle. Perhaps it is time to rethink the solo guitar and voice status?!
Thanks Dan and Hobgoblin.
