    Yes im aware of this also.

    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. .

    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.

    This thread might help shed some light for you: http://www.mylespaul.com/threads/mystery-les-paul-copy-identification-thread.314025/
