    Mine baby is a 2000 52AVRI.

    I have always used a generous amount of relief in the neck. I recently increased the neck shim to .01500 and flattened out the neck a bit. WOW! Superb action and intonation.

    Schnauzer, I am assuming that the guitar in your avatar and the two pics in your post are of the same guitar. If so, it is amazing to me how the same butterscotch guitar can look so different in different lighting. I've seen that phenomenon before, but it never ceases to amaze me.

    BTW, are you a steel player as well? Is that a Peavey Nashville in the background?

    Ok, the wife has given my the green-light to start looking for a '52 AVRI to replace my CV Tele.

    What is the average weight of a '52? One of the things I love about my CV is how light it is- just over 7 lbs.

    Haven't weighed mine ever. But just going by feel, if you're looking for light, the '52 is not for you.

    At least not mine.

    Well I've been mostly a lurker for a few years now but here's my soon to be for sale 97 AVRI Coppercaster. (And It is much heavier than 7lbs! :lol:)

    And yes, I changed out the pickguard.

    My earlier pics have disappeared, so here are a couple new ones (the REAL color is something in-between):

    Just put mine down about an hour ago.

    I swapped out the pickguard for a mint green one. i think it looks more rockin that way . :p robbie robertson, circa 1971

    Although I have a question. I feel that my string tension on the 52 is very tight... Ive tried different strings/gauges , and it doesnt feel as silkly as any other guitar I own...

    Anybody else have this issue?

    Are your other guitars shorter scale, like Gibsons? Definitely a difference between my AV52RI and my Les Paul, using the same strings (.10s).

    Maybe small fret size? I have had the two extremes of my 52 AVRI and a Highway One with the huge frets and the big frets can make an easy feeling. Otherwise I have to say same size string sets have felt and acted much the same on the Fender and Squiere guitars I've had.

    I also have and play different scale length guitars not finding that much difference with the ease showing up on acoustics before my electrics.

    Good luck sorting it out.

    Here's my AV52RI... Cannot for the life of me remember the year, but I'm thinking it's 2002 or 2003. It's definitely been played out plenty, and has the wear to prove it.
