    Or would it not rather be "inverted alchemy" they're specialised in?..considering the lack of sparkles in the end product/wording.

    vote for it with your checkbook.... I am sure the 57-64 reissue styles will return when this bastard child of many years doesn't sell.

    Hmmmm, that's an interesting decision. For those who remember Sir Humphrey from Yes Prime Minister, it's the sort of decision that he would tell the Prime Minister was "courageous". o_O

    I'm sure Fender wants info on these embargoed until they make their official announcement - probably when the NAMM show opens on January 25th. They probably "requested" that the dealer remove them from the website until the official announcement.

    In a sense these new "American Originals" are a throwback (or maybe "fauxback" to borrow a term from the sports uniforms/apparel world) to the original "US Vintage Reissues" of 1982. Those weren't very accurate; they were intended to be a "vintage vibe" instrument - for example, all 3 guitar models had the same C-shaped neck (the so-called "small-shouldered C" neck found on the David Gilmour Strats from the Custom Shop). But over the years the "mission statement" changed to trying to make them accurate to a specific year.

    Not sure if the neck is similar to the Blacktop Tele but I had a LP which I never bonded with and swapped it for the Blacktop.

    That would explain the totally non-original daft names..

    Well as much as people want fender to be stewards of their past they are a business and I'm guessing the avris don't really fly off the shelves so probably trying another angle, the majority who don't even know or care what a 7.25 radius is. There are tons of used ones though

    Well for what it's worth. I never considered any of the numerous AVRIs because I hate the 7.25 radius with a passion.

    Now I will definitely look at the new ones and maybe even buy one.
