No offense, but until i got to this forum,and have already been told same thing. Because the reason is i didn't kmow what it was. So i wouldn't call them now, in hindsight i was looking for answers .
If you haven't noticed it - the thread already got moved to the correct section of the board

Seems that the questions i asked have not completely been answered.
Does anyone know any information about it. And what it might be valued at. .
Im aware that the questions when i asked how to move my post or foward it may be confusing,.but im following very well. Thank you kindly
Never heard of this brand, sorry.
Hello Jim, welcome to the forum.
Avondale isn't a known brand name, which is why there's little information forthcoming.
It appears to be probably made in China or Korea.
The reason I say this is that certain parts on your guitar look like they are in common with Asian made instruments over the last few decades - 3-screw truss rod cover, chrome plated parts (as opposed to nickel-plated), the type of bridge (screwdriver height adjustable as opposed to thumbwheel adjustable).
The short version of the story is that a few factories in Asia supply most of the world's inexpensive instruments; local distributors contract with them to have guitars made with their brand-name and specifications. Since the 1970s there have been hundreds of brands of Les Paul copy guitars on the market, of varying quality; some superb, some not so great.
