    I haven't tried an AVRI, so it might be similar. I would describe this as "deep u", using the Fender nomenclature.

    Gonna whisk off to the fender site because now I'm curious :lol:.

    The site says "large C" - I'm not even sure what else has that available. If you do get a chance, try an AVRI to compare - maybe even the american original?

    Either way, that's a couple threads on here and I bet they sound fantastic.

    I'm gonna make my build thread today, since I keep mentioning it :lol:

    Don't think any others have the large C profile, it was Richie's request to the best of my knowledge.

    HNGD, beautiful guitar, I need to try one, but not sure if I could get used to that neck.

    Incredible guitars and the pickups are 10/10 IMO.

    They also made a (discontinued) matching strat for those that are interested.

    I asked because I tried to replicate with affordable mods on my Squier CV50, and that grampa tele could metal too!

    Yeah it can definitely do metal. That Chopper T is a versatile little pickup.

    Picked up one of these from Musicians Friend with a 15% off black Friday discount. Your post pushed me over the edge.

    Agreed. It's super fat but somehow extremely comfortable. I've been playing it for almost 7 hours today and don't even notice it at this point. No hand cramping either.

    Got mine 2 days ago and it came exactly as advertised. Very comfortable guitar to play and the pickups sound fantastic. Quality is just as good if not better than the USA models. I don't really notice the fat neck unless i do a significant stretch for some wide intervals and I don't really notice the heel block so much since it's only a 22 fret model. I'm very pleased!

    Wow...that Tele looks great with the gold hardware, the flame maple top and maple neck/FB and bound body. Telecasters are great guitars and I sure love my 1952 AVRI Fender Tele that I bought brand new back in 2006 and I've bonded with it ever since. Congrats on your purchase.
