    IMHO, the AV64 is the nicest Telecaster they make right now. It's incredible. Having played one, I was getting a serious case of GAS...

    My dream telecaster is a 62 telecaster custom, double binding.. but Fender discontinued it, so the AV64 is the next best thing! How are the frets on those? I dont mind vintage frets, but switching with different necks with different radii and frets might not work for me.

    FMIC calls them "vintage" frets, but on all the AV series guitars they are not precisely vintage spec. They are a little bit taller. I think their idea was that since these guitars are keepers, the owners will want to get a bit more mileage out of the frets. They are the same thickness as vintage, but a little taller.

    The neck on the AV64 and the fret finish is spectacular, I can't think of a better way of describing the effect of playing it. The best thing about it is the feel of the neck. It's probably the most comfortable Tele neck I've played, especially in the first four or five positions where it tapers down very gradually. It's a '60's C neck, which is a round profile. So it's thinner at the nut but chunkier up high around the 12th fret and beyond.

    The "grey bottom" pickups are also tasty. No reason to ever swap them out for anything else.

    Fender does not make tuners,Gotoh and Ping make them and there are plenty of models Fender makes that do have staggered vintage tuners.

    Not exact, but vintage buttons, locking, and it sure looks like staggered posts.
