Doesn't get much better than that.
< Snap! Congratulations, indeed. You have just scored the top of the Fender pile in my book.
These seem rare indeed in the UK. I refuse to buy new and I ended up lucking out after a lot of searching and waiting to get my beauty which was a Fender ex-demonstrator so well set up and played in with some natural light relicing! It's just possible these will rise in value over the next 10 years or so. Mine is a 2012.
I asked Fender questions about this model. Here were the responses:
For how long was it made in that colour?
We did that color from 09/2012 - 05/2013.
How many were made in that colour?
We did right around 500 of them in that color
How many were sent to the UK?
Unfortunately, I do not have an efficient way to look this up.
Very cool, congrats.
hello spenno, eye have one just like yours. eye have'nt weighed meyene ,but it feels light compared to meye other teles . great guitar ,eye even use the vintage strap. and the case is one of the best looking. sounds great ,fells great is great , eye think hew will love it.
The Ruttetscup is both functional and attractive. Right angle cables and all.
Very helpful info, thanks! I've seen three for sale in the UK in my search. 500 eh? A rare breed then!
I see you are in England, you must have some amazing shops. I go to guitar shops whenever I am in a city and I have never even seen an AVRI 52, 58 or Pro, much less the 64. I did play a previous version of the AVRI 52 after a few years of looking but these upper crust Teles are rare from my experience. And the fact that you got an LPB is doubly amazing!
You'd be lucky to find all of the models I mentioned in stock at any one time at the same store, but I'd expect any store worth their salt to have at least 2-3. I found it so much easier being able to switch between them within a few seconds to gauge the differences. If I'm honest, the biggest difference I heard between any of those models was whenever I switched to an AVRI 52: I immediately picked up on how meatier it sounded in the low end (which I loved) but also how much brittler in the top end, which was the only concern I had about the 52.
Not having much luck with the Rutterscup, there doesn't seem a way of ordering one through their site. Anyone got one recently?
Got round to putting straplocks on today and also a dab of superglue inside the switch as it was coming off whenever I changed pickup. Then I thought... how will I remove the plate or socket if required? I tried to pull it off right away but it was stuck fast. Literally a drop of glue lol
As long as you don't need to remove the switch, itself, from the plate you haven't limited your ability, at all, to remove the plate and service the electronics.
you can always just cut it off with an xacto blade, then get a new tophat.
LPB with a rosewood board is one of my favorite Tele combinations. Well done.
Sweet looking tele...enjoy!
My fav combo. Looks to good to play.
I can't say it enough, the AV64 is one fantastic guitar. There is really little reason to buy a Custom Shop or a boutique builder guitar with these available.
The LBP is simply stunning.
I got the top hat tip off with some pliers. The tip survived, albeit gashed somewhat. So, a £13 Fender replacement tip or £2 err, generic Oak one? The vain part of me wants to keep her as intended but that's steep for a tiny piece of plastic...
Ok I will see your tele and raise you a strat.
NGD from over at strat talk.
Luvvly bubbly. I love LPB with a Rosewood board.
I've put an electro-socket in mine. One suggestion though put the screws in on the horizontal, you get more wood to screw into.
I always put in an ElectroSocket and compensated saddles on my new Telecasters. I wish Fender still offered Lake Placid Blue for the '64. It's one of my favorite colors they do.
