Classed as a grand auditorium, the Skylark is one of the more radical-looking acoustics we've seen in recent years. Like all the Avian guitars, it's made from all-solid wood (mahogany back and sides) with a fastidious attention to detail - it's a really crisp Taylor-esque build.
The shape and placement of the Skylark's soundhole directs the sound more immediately to the player's ear. We love this. If you want to play the guitar and have an audience's perspective on your sound, this will get you very close. It's an intimate experience, even a confidence boost if you need it. It also means, from the player's perspective, the guitar is tonally quite distinct.
"It might be radical, but the soundhole placement is a revelation. Great for modern fingerstyle players."45 Stars
