    50 years ago today I entered this world, and today...my wife presented me with the guitar I have lusted the most for - the '64 AVRI which is both an amazing instrument and celebrates the year of my birth. I'm simply stunned, it is both beautiful with the period specs to detail and sounds out of this world. I have not played the '52 or '58 reissues, but since I prefer the more modern c-shape profile neck on my other guitars it sounded like the right choice, plus 1964 was a good year for me. Fender killed it with this reissue, and all the vintage case and candy it comes with it is a bonus. CAR with a rosewood fretboard looks stunning. Here's some pics...

    Wow, what a beauty. Happy Birthday, Happy New Guitar Day, enjoy it, they are wonderful guitars. I don't know if it's the light where the photos were taken, but it looks light for CAR. I really like the shade if I'm honest.
