Man, that is nice!
I have an AVRI 62 Jazzmaster in surf green and I love it. Had it since new and can't imagine ever letting it go. You're very lucky to have found one of those for sale.
As for thrle wiring, I'd make the change. Easy enough to do, but just makes the guitar for versatile and usable. I've said it before, but if you want the 'dark circuit' back, just go to the neck pickup and roll the tone to zero - it's close.

That JM is a beauty!
Congrats on an awesome guitar! I love mine.
You guys are tempting me with the whole "these pickups sound great together" thing. But if I do the switch to modern wiring, I won't use the case candy. I'll just buy the cap and anything else needed.
Very Nice. Enjoy.
I did the mod on my AVRI telecaster and it made the bridge pickup up to trebly. did not like it
OP I saw that lovely surf green AV62 on CL and Facebook! I was tempted but I’ve already got a very nice AV64 Telecaster. I noticed it was gone pretty quick! Can’t believe you got that tele and a Blues Jr for $1500. Good score.
Yep that's a killer tele! The dark rosewood board really puts it over the top. Never played one of those but I'd sure like to!
That is a grail type Telecaster right there!
Consider a high quality prewired control plate from a top eBay seller and pop that one in the case unmolested
Kelling Sound, Obsidian, 920 pro shop there are many choices
Welcome and congrats on the guitar/amp. Pretty git, nice amp. Great combo to launch you into the Tele universe. As you probably know the BJ is a cool little amp all by itself but should you get bored or feel creative it's got a number of fairly easy mods. Enjoy.
I have one too. Here is the spec of my guitar. Mine is a 2007..
Note: I changed the bridge to a lockable version. I also have the back of the neck shaven..
Here is a link to the lockable bridge..
Pasted from an email I received from the Fender Support team...

Mine has the modern Telecaster switching.... it is a MUST MAKE MOD..
Fender hit one out the park with the AVRI series. I've got the 52 tele and the pickups are as close to the old teles as any I've heard. I swapped them out briefly with another set that was on my old gigging guitar. I loved those pickups but I ended up going back to the stock ones.
That is gorgeous! Really a beautiful guitar. Enjoy! Make some great music with it...
beauty for certain, great acquisition !
I own an 86 MIJ / TL 62 in Sunburst, I don't play it enough. ( No Bender ) But I use my stock Blues Jr very often !
I’ve heard this before. The capacitor tends to brighten things up. Not sure if I want that. But I do want that middle position... decisions
Beautiful guitar and thanks for the info! Did you do the mod with the included capacitor??
My tech did the mod. Yes.
It popped on FB market place while I was looking for a strat for a friend. Needless to say it peaked my interest. Now she’s mine.
Great score! I, too, have the '62 Custom in the exquisite Surf Green, and play it through the Blues Jr. A combo made in guitar heaven.
The Middle Position. In all our discussions about Telecaster minutiae, we don't often talk, in any depth, about pickups in combination. You must do the mod- the middle position is essential- more so, with great pickups, such as yours.
The relicing on your amp looks like it was done by my cat. I would check to make sure no harm has come to your speaker cone, through 'enthusiastic' ageing......
