    Gday folks,
    So I hunted around for a little while for a '52 RI, nothing much popped up so I thought lets give these new things a try! This one seems to have a slightly more aged tint to the neck, and isn't as pumpkin looking in the body color as some I've seen. Im really looking forward to hearing that brass saddle/ash body goodness come out of it.

    Probably a month away yet.... patience.... Pics from the shop website, better ones soon.

    Cheers, Scott.

    Yeah a Fender repro came with the trees case. Had the thicker neck. Got it new direct from Fender about 6 years ago.

    Super nice! My '52 avri is one of my favorite guitars ever. Just absolutely solid in every way, every note rings like a brass bell.
