That is NICE !
Congrats... I'm sure you will be thrilled to have that!
Congrats, I’m deciding between an American Professional or an Original 50’s Telecaster this weekend.
Both in butterscotch. I’ll pick the one that feels and sounds the best. YouTube videos have me leaning towards the Original 50’s.
I’ve had one since January, great guitars.
That’s a beauty, hope you enjoy it!
Very nice! Congrats, you can't go wrong with a butterscotch Tele.
I had an original 1952 Telecaster. Sold it in the 80s for £600 ($800) duh.
Just one thing, to be true to the original '52, the twelfth fret dots should be closer together. The went wider in '53.
I have had two of them and I absolutely this guitar, and you will too.
The lack of grain is the only knock on my 52AVRI. Having owned an original Blackguard, I know that the AVRI doesn’t quite have the look of my 53. Plays great, though. If the Original 50’s sound as good, I’ll try one out... it definitely looks more original!
I've had one for about a month and a half. Very easy playing one I got used to the taller frets. I had to get use to lighter pressure on the strings or I was pushing it out of tune a lot. It sounds great now that it broke me in!
The best Telecaster in the current FMIC line as far as I'm concerned. It ticks all the boxes. I liked the previous AV52 model, too, but the only thing I wasn't so keen on was the 7.25" radius fretboard. I said to myself, "oh well, maybe someday Fender will make a guitar almost like this, but with a 9.5" radius."
Then they went and did it, and I was on board!
I'm so aroused
Fantastic! Congratulations. I just got one earlier this year and I'm loving it. Great guitars that ticked all the boxes of what I wanted in a Tele.
Will be anxious to hear more once you receive and get to play her some. I hear more and more on just how good the Fender production guitars are these days.
That is gorgeous. And I have too many guitars to lust after it. But I still love my 2008 Baja Tele. It's definitely better than the current Baja Teles (craftsmanship: tooling on body & neck, curves & edges, finish and pickups) and it's as good as many recent American-made Teles I've tried.
Oh, you mean one of these? This is a 52 AVRI from 2001 and is my daily player. LOVE it.
That's nice, but it's not one of those.
There are actually several different similar models that have evolved, the AO '50s is the latest iteration. The evolutionary timeline looks something like this:
AVRI [introduced in the early 1980's]
American Vintage '52 (aka "Pure Vintage") [2012-2018]
American Original '50s [2018— ]
PV is 2012-2017
