Hello -

I'm on the lookout for a used '62 AVRI and have a couple questions...

What colors did they come in over the years?

Did they always have a slab rosewood board, or did it ever come with a round lam board?

Thanks in advance for any help.

As an aside, it seems kind of odd that right now Fender does not offer an American made strat with a 7.25" radius. The American Original 60's Strat has a 9.5" radius. I wish they'd bring back the AVRI '62.

I'm pretty certain that all AVRI '62s were rosewood slab-boards. The only lam-boards I recollect were the AVS '64s, the series that replaced the AVRI's.

The AVRI '62s were available in a number of finishes including 3TSB, Fiesta Red, Olympic White, Lake Placid Blue, Black, Candy Apple Red, Ocean Turquoise Metallic, Sonic Blue, and (possibly) Sea Foam Green.

It's difficult to find any new Fenders with the original 7.25" fretboard radius and vintage-sized fret wire -- good luck with your search.
