    Has anybody switched pups on their '12 or later 52? If so for what?

    I think it's average. Lighter is the rave, but if a tele's body is too light it will become neck heavy which translates to less comfort. Also it is up to personal taste if a lighter guitar sounds better. Out of my four teles my AV is the heaviest, best balanced and best sounding. In my opinion 8 lbs is not heavy by any means.

    Hello All!! Just joined the club a few weeks ago. I am a bit curious, what strings do y'all prefer on your AV52? I just put new D'Addarrio NYXL 10-52s on mine, while they sound nice, they feel like they have too much tension and require some extra work to play (not necessarily a bad thing). Just curious what everyone here uses. If wrong forum, I can post elsewhere, just figured I would ask others with the same guit thought.

    I recently put a set of NYXL 9-46s on my Elite Tele and I really like them, which is why I put this set on the AV52, maybe I should try the 10-46? Any other suggestions are welcome!

    Posted a couple pics as well, took her apart the other night when I was changing strings.

    Edit - Realize that strings are a lot about personal preference, just wondering if others had a similar experience. Thanks!

    As a follow-up to my previous post, does anyone understand what all the markings are on the neck/neck pocket of my guitar? Aside from the date it seems like a lot of markings on here.

    I am in. My PV 52 is actually my only electric and while I look every day for another tele, I don't really feel the need of another one: she can do everything!
    She is from the very first batch

    Who can resist them? Took me many years and a milestone birthday to finally land one. 52 HR version, no idea what year but circa 2008 I think. For some reason I don't like taking necks off guitars.

    Well, I guess dreams can come true. I finally got my 52 reissue telecaster on monday. It's from 2004, and still has all of the case candy and COA. Plastic film still on the case latches and logo. Traded a MIM strat and tele for it. Clearly it was rarely played as it has only a few light surface scratches on the back.

    I know that this has been said on other posts, but you should email Fender your serial number, they will get back to you with all the details on your HR. No neck popping required.

    consumerrelations@fender.com

    Nice HR BTW, I have one from 2008 on the way now!

    Thanks, I will do that. I saw an earlier post where someone with serial number 71XXX has a 2011 manufacture date. Mine is 77XXX so it's likely to be 2012 at a guess.

    Yeah I think that is probably close. Mine is 63XXX and 2008.

    If you hop over to the hot rod owners page you can see my last post as far as the details provided by Fender...pretty cool info actually.

    A very recent find that I am delighted to have added to my tele collection. It's a 1982 '52 Vintage Reissue which constitutes one of the very first Reissues ever produced by Fender. This one which came towards the end of the CBS era, was in itself a very fine guitar, but sadly also became part of the 'too little too late' years that spelled the end of the CBS owned Fender Musical Instrument Company in 1985. These '52 RI guitars were first made available in 1982, and were shortly followed by '57 RI and '62 RI Strats. These guitars were considered to be amongst the finest guitars that Fender had made in over twenty years. Even then the purists found 'inconsistencies' in 12th fret marker spacings, neck profiles etc., etc.. CBS had run its course, allowing former Fender operatives to reclaim partial ownership.

    Serial Number 1715 (below). Guitar weighs 8lb 4oz. It now joins my 2013 '52 AVRI. Both exceptional guitars.

    Here is a Fender AVRI 52 that was on our local Craigslist about 6-9 months ago. The guitar had been in it's case and gone through a HOUSE FIRE. Bummer!

    The guitar sold 2 times locally. The original seller was trying to sell it as a relic. It just looks burned and terrible to me.

    The original seller had it priced at $500 or $600 and then someone bought it and put it up for sale again a short time later for $800. I saved these pictures to share. I nicknamed it the "Housefire Special". ;)
