    I got it on Reverb, fantastic guitar! I've spent the better of 2 years checking Reverb daily to find the right guitar for me and I finally got it. I'll never sell this one. The guitar was basically NOS, the case candy was all factory sealed, tremolo hole cover sticker was still on, the plastic film was even on the back plate. It needed a set up and I decided i didn't want to hand it over to some guitar shop and hope they don't mess it up or not do it to my liking, so I watched tons of videos, bought the tools and set it up myself. Plays awesome now, what a difference! I still may perform a few tweaks. For instance i want to set the bridge flat to the body (there is still small gap), but I'm going to let it settle in for a while before I adjust it more..just a feeling. Anyway, enough talk, here are the pics! avri1.jpg avri2.jpg avri3.jpg avri5.jpg

    I always enjoy seeing pictures of the guitars that people buy for themselves. I know how happy that makes people like us. When I get a new guitar for myself I have to put it where I can just sit and look at it when I'm not playing it. Sometimes I wonder if that's normal or if I'm just losing my mind. Anyway you have a beautiful guitar and I have you enjoy it very much. Take care

    Congrats with that great guitar! I have the maple neck ‘59 version and it’s my favourite strat out of all the ones I’ve owned. Would love to get a rosewood version to accompany mine.

    Can’t give enough praise to the AV series, such a shame they were discontinued...

    Congrats! I've got one just like it, a 2014 model if I remember correctly. Like you, it's a guitar that I will never sell, it's that good!
