    WOW- love this thing!! white/blond one piece ash body- light and resonant. I bought it on wednesday and played with my band last night for the first time. It's no other tele i have owned (previous teles- nash 57, 52 vintage hot rod, 62 AVRI, and a partcaster). The guitar seems crazy versatile coming out of my 70's silverface deluxe reverb. Takes pedals well and has an articulate, snappy response. subtle changes in attack are really noticible and the neck feels so comfortable. Only issue is it looks like the finish will chip if I if i look at it the wrong way (LOL). Its cool that it will relic naturally with out having to wait 30 years! anyway i would highly recommend the '58

    Maple on White blonde is killer. I've never seen one in any of the stores near here and would love to try one out.
    Like others have said, you must post pics.

    I think you'd better give them some pics, saltstained. I'll tell you what though, if it's anything like my AV '59 Strat, it's a knockout.

    Sounds awesome though it's not a one-piece body.

    You can get lucky and get a one piece body... I just got a new AV52 in one piece...

    Pictures or better yet post demo video.

    I really like the 58 and 64 and the 52.
    I'm truly torn which I would/should get. I'm leaning 64 blonde but it's harder to find them as cheap as a 58.

    Are you asking about my sunburst 58 reissue pictured above?I bought that one in Montreal Canada at Archambault music actually where I grew up before moving to Texas in 2007.I was in Montreal on vacation around 2 years ago and she was being discounted at 30% off because of a few minor dings in the finish.My guitars get played live so they relic fast anyways....wear and tear is not an issue for me.Anyways,she was in the store since 2012 and never sold.I'd play her everytime I was back in town and was always amazed at what a great Tele she is....definitive Telecaster twang.When I saw she was being discounted I jumped on it and took her home...she was meant to be mine I guess!!

    I think I like my 58 the best out of my 52 and 64. Neck is perfect and that steel saddle, 3 barreled bridge is what makes a tele, well, a tele.

    I've had a 52 AVRI
    and still have two 62 AVRI's and the 58 is absolutely my favorite.
