    yessir, and it has a bit more dulling, some buckle rashes after making it my no.1 going on a year now. I love it more today.

    Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to try either. If the AV is like the 52 RI I probably wouldn't care for it. I think I would prefer the AO.

    vintage radius and vintage frets. Thats the AV 52ri. If you like a flatter radius 9.5, and taller narrow tall frets then the AO is for you.

    the reasons why the AV is held in such high regard is because its the closest you can get to 50’s/60’s guitars without paying vintage prices or custom shop prices. Plus they’re built really good, play really nice and finished the way it was finished back in the good ole days.

    the AO is a really nice guitar and would probably be for people who like vintage vibe with modern playability. Get the best one for you and you wont regret it.
