    I have a Fender Custom Shop NOS 60 in sea foam green, but I don't think that one qualifies for this group. It is still a very nice playing guitar.

    I also have a red Strat that started life as a 1982 AVRI 62. It was owned by the late Eddie Bertrand (of the Belairs and Eddie & the Showmen). He swapped out the body. The neck and middle pickups are the red back 82s. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder. The back side of the guitar has been signed by other surf players with some inscriptions to Eddie. Among the signatures are those of the Lively Ones and the Sound Waves. Surf fans may recognize those.

    Not sure I follow you. If you mean more pictures of other AVRIs. No. Those are all I have. If you mean more pictures of one of those guitars. Sure. I can take about any picture you want to see.

    Later,
    Norm

    Hi all,

    I posted in the regular discussion forum but maybe here is better. I am looking at a strat in a local shop. It has a Vxxxxxx serial number on the neck plate. It is a two piece ash body with a two tone nitro burst finish with no poly underneath. The trem guard is stamped 1954. It has a U shaped, vintage radius and fret neck. The neck is penciled 1994 and stamped Hector montes. There is NO marking on the back of the headstock (this worries me). It has a single ply, 8 hole pick guard. The 2 piece ash body is just lovely.

    So... it is not a 1994 limited 54 reissue as it doesn't have the '40 Years Still rockin' engraving on the plate. Is it a 1994 custom shop? But why no markings on the back of the headstock?



    Cheers

    My FSR tropical turquoise '62. Took it from Canada, the last one in the shop. Only 250 of them released.
    Initially was looking for a White Vintage Hot Rod '62, that was impossible to find, so, because I was born in '62, took this! Don't regret it at all!

    Fiesta Red '82? Wow, that must be one of the rarest of all the AVRIs.

    It has grey bobbin pups too. The neck date is 5-27-82 and a SN under 700. It also feels and sounds awesome.

    I hope you have it well insured. Though how you would replace that I really don't know!
