Although their web site doesn't mention it (http://www.avalonguitars.com/index.php) other than the web shop being disabled, Avalon Guitars in Belfast have gone into receivership (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-18207130.)
Their support forum (http://www.avalonguitars.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1615) has a message indicating that staff were recently laid-off.
It's not looking good. Avalon was on my list of vendors to check-out, but unlike Fylde it was virtually impossible to play an Avalon without visiting the factory in Northern Ireland if you didn't know someone with one. With Fylde I can visit a local dealer such as Forsythes in Manchester, or even visit the workshop in Penrith by appointment.
Here you can discuss details about instruments, equipment and all those other bits that non-musicians won't understand !
