    What I do not like about this AVRI Strat is that there is too much sunburst. Didn't they have any nicer colours?

    In that case I can't think of anything that meets your requirements quite as perfectly as a Fullerton or early Corona 62RI. I believe that the 57s are as slim but I've never tried one to find out if that's true. The question is when did the necks change, & the answer seems to be some time in 1987. I had an '88 & the neck was noticeably bigger than my '86, & I didn't take to that one at all. So if the date on this one is 1988, I'd be wary, it might not be what you want.
