The American Vintage (AV) Series started in 1982-1998. A slightly different American Vintage series ran from 1999-2012. And a third AV series, colloquially known as AVRIs, ran from 2013- 2018(?). Names taken directly from the catalogs. I can't find any catalog that uses the term American Vintage Reissue (AVRI). DIgital copies of catalogs available here... https://guitar-compare.com/catalogs/fender-catalogs/ As far as pricing goes, I'll throw my two-cents in. I follow the market (fancy way to say I look at Reverb and eBay regularly). IMO, the pricings go (highest to lowest) 1982-1986 AVs 2013-2018 (?) AVs 1999-2012 AVs 1997-1998 AVs (but the last two could be flip-flopped easily) IMO, a decent one from those two groups should fetch $1300-1800. @Johnny Danger - nice looking guitar. The 1999-2012 AVs have a slightly different (better) neck shape than the earlier ones (of which I have a couple). I don't see many '99-'12s for sale recently.
