Last week, I received a used '52 AVRI that I purchased on the emporium. So far, I've played it at two rehearsals - one with a full band and another with a singer/acoustic guitarist - and at home a bit. I've been playing for a pretty long time (just over 20 years), and have actually owned 3 Teles before this one (another '52 AVRI, an American Std., and a '62 Reissue Thinskin Custom). After just over a week with this guitar, I'm kicking myself for not really understanding how versatile Teles can be sooner. I've been having a great time just experimenting with subtle adjustments to the tone and volume controls, and have been astonished how much tonal ground I can cover. I've been using minimal effects - just a Fairfield Barbershop and some reverb (Strymon Flint) into my AC15HW1X. It's definitely been humbling to realize how many options I had, with such a simple guitar, and how I'd overlooked those possibilities for so long.
