    It's RIGHT there on the site. -.-'
    AV1 has a -
    nato body
    maple neck
    dot inlay
    bolt-on neck
    one volume one tone pot
    stock tuners

    AV3 has a -
    mahogany body
    mahogany neck
    crown inlay
    set neck
    two volume two tone pots
    Grover tuners

    If you don't know what those specifications mean and imply, perhaps you had better research more about electric guitars before jumping into buying them.

    And Anchit7, no one gives a shit if a guitar LOOKS more like a Les Paul. Besides, the whole Avion series is a Les Paul copy, and no, they are not clones, Samick probably won't survive a Gibson litigation. >.>

    Reviews if you want 'em.

    That's what the site says, but for some reason my AV1 has grover tuners, the brand name is right there, embedded on them. I too was surprised...

    hey..."ultrabot90"..i do give a "shit" if a guitar looks like a les paul....both the av3 n the av1 have same pickups...its the av3 that looks more like a standard les paul to me than the av1...n hence i bought it........

    FAIL. your deciding factor should have been that the AV3 is made of mahogany and not of nato. that's what brings you a not-so-tiny step closer to a paula.

    the AV1 reads like a crap guitar. what are they like to play?

    c'mon man...what will a 16 yr old like me know about wood factors of guitars????...anyway..the wood is the least of my worries..i am extremely satisfied with my av3....

    the av1 sounds good......it has an ok fretboard dat allows ok playbility...but it was its looks that left me puzzled...i wanted a guitar that had a shape close by to a les paul.....and the av1..no offence meant..looked to me like a terribly bad cross of a les paul and an artcore ibanez type of guitar.........

    16 years old.... well that forgives a lot then. :)

    beware of pedobear though, even though you're marginally too old for him.

    Buy my Digitech. Way easier to use (I used a friend's Zoom, and it's insane trying to understand anything with that 2 digit display...the Digitech is way easier). For your level, the sounds will be very good, too.

    Had you read the compete thread before commenting.....u'd have noticed that i had already bought my AV3 when i was advising vikask........Moreover this thread is 2 years old......so i don't know what you were thinking while posting.........

    Moreover,Both these guitars stock mahogany wood for neck and body and rosewood for the fretboard........so your wood choices are nothing better than mine..........
    As for your statement that at the age of 15, you know wood does matter,indicating I didn't at 16.......well i'll say that everybody has their own speed of learning things.........Anoushka Shankar was touring globally as a phenomenal sitarist at the age of 15...are you?
