AVA is 21st century lutherie for high performance musical instruments. AVA is focused on guitar players and their purest feelings while bringing together tradition, design and advanced technology and materials. AVA was born in 2011, created by musicians, designers and engineers, to bring out the best performance experience to every single player. The AVA studio is located in the vibrant and creative city of Porto, Portugal, where everything is designed, engineered and built. The AVA mission is musicians' joy!
AVA One electric guitars are incredibly eclectic, offering the player total freedom to create and play. Their single piece body, fully built out of carbon fiber, offers impressive light weight, sustain, tuning stability and even weather resistance. The guitar is elegant and graceful, with high quality detail and handmade construction, assembly and painting. It has a single cutaway shape, with Schaller hardware and Seymour Duncan pickups standard, but any customization is available on demand.
"The carbon fibre AVA One is absolutely brilliant sounding and will go toe to toe with the finest hand carved wood guitars to be found, including the best of Gibson and the other iconic brands. This may be THE guitar I play for the rest of my life!" - Cliff Cultreri.
