    62 AVRI 2 stamped on back headstock

    Thx for your responses. I’d really like an AVRI 62 however I’m going to stay away from this one. I read about a similar #2 on a strat plus from 90s, whilst nothing conclusive from Fender the thought was these were seconds designated for Indonesia / Asian markets. Reason I’m changing is I don’t...

    62 AVRI 2 stamped on back headstock

    Hi, I have the opportunity to swap my 2018 AO60s for what’s advertised as AVRI 62. I haven’t seen the guitar yet however I’ve noticed a #2 stamped on back of headstock. Anyone come across this before?

    Nov 1964 strat - Is it ligit, indicative value where to get rebuilt (if that's appropriate)

    A guy on a FB forum just did this, with a sad face and no explanation, that's why I'm asking How can I be sure it's Brazilian BTW?

    I saw that, amazing job sorting some creative wiring. Routing a pot out the back, wow... IMG_3917 by dparky posted Jan 11, 2022 at 5:50 PMi think my fretboard looks in similar condition. I'll be nearer to Clive Brown (kindly recommended by Bazz Jass). On a seperate note, anyone see anything...

    I th I think you've nailed it. Pickups and truss rod both work. I'll get it operational with vintage looking parts that I can get from Fender / Goth etc. I have a local luthier that will sort electronics and nut. It could do with a refret but I'll hold off for now. I'm back in the UK in May...

    I'm regularly between the two, that's why. I'll carry it.

    I'd love too, however it's covered in the respray. I suspect based on the different colours I see it was originally sunburst. I'll get some basics on in and look for original parts. I've got this to play, basically cost me 2k USD (the price I paid for the strat I gave the guy)

    Hi all. Huge thanks for all of your insight and invaluable tips. Despite the fact that there are barely any screws with this and there's a lot of work to be done, and I don't think it's the original colour I did the deal (not with my AO 60's, which I adore, but with my rareities flame ash top /...

    The guy originally wanted to buy my guitar for parts for his... He told me he acquired this guitar through family in place of money owed to him. I get the impression he doesn't have the time or the connections to sell the parts (im in Mexico, as is he - but he doesn't speak English) and also...
