We all know the AV52 and the AV64. Very popular guitars. The AV58 always seemed like the unwanted stepchild, for some reason. I wonder why that was? I always thought it might have something to do with the neck, which is a bit weird. D shape, they called it. Anyway, in the last few days here, I've noticed a number of people saying they had one. So, just out of curiosity, raise your hand if you ever owned one, and tell us about it. I'll go first. I got mine in 2013, new. Still have it. I never fell in love with the pickups (they're "fine"), and I wanted to try something different, so I put a set of Stuart Blackguards into it. A3 magnets, perfect for that clean, clear Buckaroo sound. At that point I'd only been playing a couple years, and was still learning what I liked. I had hated Telecasters, but they were sneaking up on me! I had a modern spec one that I didn't really like. Realized I needed something..... When I saw this one on Reverb, my world changed. I've been a fan of vintage specs ever since. I almost didn't get it. I was trying to be clever with a lowball offer. Initially a store employee rejected it. But then hours later, the shop owner messages me, asking to deal. What the heck? I found out that it was brand new, but listed as "mint". It was a special order for a customer, but they made a mistake: it was supposed to be an AV64! He was stuck with it and needed the cash, so I got the guitar. Good thing, too, or I'd have regretted it. Here's what I saw when I opened the case: And here it is later, after I installed a Rutters bridge, with custom cutaway, and Rutters compensated saddles, strung toploader. The switch on the control plate is probably a blower, bypassing tone and volume. So what's your AV58 story?
