I finally was able to replace a tele I sold to pay bills. Its an AV 52 and feels like an old friend, since the tele I replaced was a Broadcaster. Ordered used through a GC a thousand miles away and picked it up today at the local GC. Is it my imagination or is the AV 52's neck a bit wider than Broadcaster? It has cosmetic issues and the finish chips rather than wears evenly. But it came with compensated saddles and a good setup. And it weighs a hair over 7lbs. Very much worth the wait. There is nothing like a telecaster that just feels right.
