    That tele looks awesome.

    I love that combination of binding and surfing green on the body.

    The 62's are fantastic guitars. I played one just like that a few years back but I couldn't afford it at the time. Someday!! Good luck with it!!

    Nice score. Every AV 62 Tele I've tried played and sounded great. A slightly more refined and classsy take on the traditional design. Surf green is a bitchin color and fits the era perfectly.
    Swang on,

    Except for blond and white, I guess Surf Green is my favorite Tele color - it's got to have double white binding though.

    Good on you, fenderrookie!:cool:

    After playing several different Tele models, this one hooked me. Raw, unforgiving, thick tone.
    Twang & snap from the vintage frets. Awesome bass response & silky smooth.
    The rosewood neck & the vintage pickups are the outstanding. Breaks up nicely with overdrive.
    Vintage size frets, fretwork, setup & intonation was perfect, steel threaded saddles.
    The vintage pickups in this '62 are not noiseless but have a much richer tone than the SCN noiseless pickups I've tried.
    They just seem more alive, have a depth that the noiseless can not replicate.

    As stated in an earlier post, it's Surf Green, double bound, I dig it! Neck is a thinner C shape than the 60's classic.

    I'm extremely pleased, I've owned a 60's classic and loved it, this AV 62 is exactly what I want.
    I will rewire for modern switching, may change the steel saddles for brass.

    You'll love it. I have a '02 sunburst AVRI Custom.

    Great guitar!
