Despite my being in a "I have to sell" phase - I picked up and interesting guitar last weekend. I originally referred o it here http://www.tdpri.com/forum/telecaster-discussion-forum/420171-opinions-american-vintage-52-black-gold.html 2004 FSR American Vintage 52 Tele (in Black and Gold). Its been played but not abused and was listed at a very reasonable price by the original owner. It has a CS Broadcaster Bridge and a CS Twisted Tele in the neck (cloth wire) with the vintage wiring scheme. The gold parts have faded a bit so it doesn't seem as 'bling or GOLD!' as some of the pictures I have seen. The owner described the neck as thin, but its not really (Fender says "U" and I believe them). It is not listed as a re-issue, probably because of the pickups, but it seems to have all of the re-issue specs from that period of AVRI 52's. Anyway - its a fine player and sounds better than the Tele I just sold.
