I wanted to buy an American Vintage 52 Telecaster in the near future. I saw the price slowly decreasing in my favourite UK music store, but before making my move, it suddenly disappeared. It is not listed at all anymore. Yesterday I contacted them to figure out if they will have on stock again in the near future. The official response came through today as they had to relay my query to Fender: the item cannot be ordered currently, and there will be information posted about this soon. (At NAMM?) As the rest of the American Vintage Series are on sale, I tend to think that something is going on with the American Vintage Series. I don’t think that they will discontinue the entire line, more likely they will introduce “twice as authentic” models this year at a higher price range.
