Hello Club 52,
Mine is a 2008 I found at a local shop. It plays like butter.
No wonder with strings so skinny that we can't see them.
I did put bardens (JBE) in mine for a short period because I had them lying around and wanted noiseless. Soon switched back to the original pickups. I just love the OV neck pickup.
FWIW I also liked the barden neck pickup – which sounds more like a mini humbucker IMHO but could not cope with the bridge. I may try a barden modern set somewhere down the road.
Here's another pic with normal-size strings. The strat is a CP60s.
Im almost ready to join the club!
I've just ordered mine this morning. I'll post some pics when it arrives, it was out of stock so it should be end of next week before I get it.
I happily join the club. Got mine last week in a very good trade – a Feb 2011 AVRI 52, lovely finish, part of the rare “’53” breed (i.e. old school AVRIs that have the wider dot spacing @ 12th fret). A bit on the heavy side (8lb 6oz) but despite initial misgivings this does not seem to bother me at all. Nice, chunky neck (.90’’ at 1st, .95’’ at 12th). Previous user had done the wiring mod, and installed the “vintage six-saddles" which I promptly swapped back with the 3-saddles.
When I first set her up (≈ Fender specs) she was hard to play. The second set-up, approximating the set-up of my beloved Baja 60s, worked the charm.
I am in love, and very intrigued by the personal voice of this tele … slightly less bright and more mid-heavy than the other teles I’ve played. Testing and playing days ahead
Roasted maple! Cool.
