    Not a debate just would like to see what's out there. I have both species and enjoy them just the same. IMG_1614.JPG IMG_0909.JPG

    Here is my 2000 AVRI 62 Strat that I bought brand new and gigged heavily from 2000 to 2007.She still gets played and I love her but I also have to rotate all the other Strats in my collection too.Every single scratch and ding is completely natural...no fake relic job.I even cracked the body one night when attempting to drop her onstage Hendrix style(I guess I was wilder back then!!)and the body split although she still held together(maybe the pickguard is keeping her together???).Anyways the crack is kind of cool in a way as it certainly gives her a unique character and it didn't affect the tone thankfully.There is weather checking in the belly cut too.The clear polyester undercoat however is much tougher than the nitro topcoat and has not aged nearly as much!!

    I'm going to refrain from this, as I have a Nash and a couple MJT's that didn't exactly leave the factory mint... ;)

    You cracked the body, hard core, looks like laquer cracks, I swear every AVRI had very very thick layer of laquer

    Looks like a real road warrior!
    Roadworn isn't TOO far off the mark then...

    Yeah the older 1982-2012 era ones has a thick poly undercoat whereas the current post 2012 Pure Vintage series reissues have a very thin nitro undercoat and they wear and chip faster than the previous series.

    Real road wear on my 2014 AVRI '59. And by road wear I mean I accidentally slammed it into the corner of my amp during a particularly enthusiastic solo.

    Edit: Whoops! Sorry that photo is so large, forgot to resize it before uploading.

    Not the 98 52 reissue that I had. 5 lbs of poly on a 2 lb ash body! Thick poly on the neck. I don't know what Fender was thinking that year. telly.jpg

    But I love their relic jobs D:

    The best strat I've ever played was probably a Nash

    Yea it seems my 2008 AVRI has that poly undercoat which appears to be black. So the top coat will wear to the poly I guess.

    I feel like I post a pic of this guitar every other week for similar threads, but here we go again for the one or two peeps on the forum that may not have seen her...
