    It's a 2007 AVRI 62 Hot Rod. Sherwood Green. I've been trying for ever to find one. It's on my bucket list. I'll get it in a few days in time for Christmas. I'll be alone this year so I am Santa. :) image2-3.jpeg

    Finding one of these guitars in this color has been like finding a needle in a haystack. I can't believe I found it.

    Nice score. Would you remind me how the Hot Rod differs from the regular AVRI?

    Thanks. The HR version has a 9'5" fingerboard, medium jumbos and a RWRP mid pup. Also a super chunky thick C neck profile. I think those are the main differences. I guess the other version has a 7.25" neck, vintage fret wire and no RWRP mid pup?
