This guitar is simply amazing....I also have a Select Tele......this is my new number one.
Congrats.. They are great!
(what am I waiting for????)
They are indeed excellent guitars. I love mine. Congratulations and enjoy!!!
Beautiful guitar! Congrats!
I can't tell in the pic, but is that the white blond over ash or do they have a solid white color over alder? I thought as white variants go they only had the ash/blond, but in the pic that looks like a vintage or oly white.
Congrats, welcome to the club!
They don't make those in olympic white. It's ash for the blonde, alder for the other colors (LPB, 3-tone sunburst, candy apple, fiesta red).
That's AWESOME! I've been SO wanting one just like that, for a few months now. Almost have enough cash. I'm curious if you got yours from a dealer, or elsewhere (mail order)? I'll be poking around trying to find one in a few more months. Have FUN, needless to say!
Wonderful Axe. I actually went for the Fender "Copy" in the end - the 60s' Classic - in Oly white. But I wanted to it look feel and sound as good as the '64. So I got it set up by a Luthier, swapped out the P/Us and put a 3 ply ewhite scratchplate on. I marginally prefer the neck profile on it too (I took off the shine on the back of the neck to further improve it).
Less than half the price of the '64 but most certainly not half the quality. So if you can't or won't stretch to the '64 price, Take a butchers at the 60's Classic:
I have a 60s Classic and an AV64, sorry even with upgraded pups its in a different class. Not saying it's bad in any way but to say it's equivalent to the AV64 is naive at best and if you described it that way while trying to sell it I'd say it's a fraud.
I love my avri 64, it's candy Apple red but I'm loving yours... Can't have two can I ? Lol
I also have a '64 in CAR and it is fantastic. Yours is a beauty!
Gotta agree with xtrajerry on this one. You can polish a 60s Classic as many ways as you'd like. It's never gonna be a '64 RI.
Two is better one.
The PV64 (in candy apple [aka ruby slipper ] red) is my favorite Tele. Which of course makes it my favorite guitar, period.
Compared to a Classic? Pfft. No way. Those are fine, but not in the same class. You'd have to replace the hardware, the pickups, the neck, the body... the case?
The better comparison is to view the PV series against similar spec custom shop models. FredDairy sold his CS to get PVs, he says. I have a few of each, and they're so close as to not matter. I just like the quartersawn necks on my customs. I really can't think of any other difference.
