Am I missing Something? (Fender content)

    Why the price drop on the AVRI line? Are they being dropped or re-vamped? Can't see how they can really "re-vamp" the AVRI line, besides the possible addition of colors. What gives?

    Which ones had the price dropped? How much were they/are they now?
  3. Maybe the production numbers are going up due to more demand?
    As that happens, generally the price will go down due to equal or greater profit margins at the lower price with the higher demand.

    On Sweetwater and several other sites. The price on the 57, 62 P's and the 62 J's seems to have dropped from $1449-1499 to $1199.

    New ones are coming out soon.
    You haven't seen the black one yet?

    I saw one (a 57) on the MF site, but couldn't access the photo. Any news on other colors aside from black? I plan on making a purchase around Feb of next year and a custom color may have me re-thinking my decision to go with an Am. Std. instead of another AVRI P.

    All I have seen is the black.
    But if you look at the Strat's and Tele's they have some cool stuff.
    I'm hoping some of it bleeds over to the basses

    Me too. Haven't checked out any guitars but I'm hoping for some of the classic colours. Pretty much anything besides White, Black or Sunburst lol.

    Black has been in the AVRI line for YEARS. None of the the revamped line has been released yet. The Price drop is probably anticipating the new releases by helping move old stock. Although, I got my 62 Jazz from Sweetwater a number of months back for about the same price, just after negotiating with them (shameless love for Sweetwater).

    Sorry, but the black has not been a recent fixture in the AVRI line as far as Precision basses go. These prices are posted on in the bass gallery in plain view.

    No but black was for years , in the last 10 or so years it got dumped from the P bass. I didnt keep track as I dont dig black. I wonder if they will drop the price more the closer it gets to the new ones being released.

    Which Bass gallery, the London one? Black has been in the line for precisions up until the last few years (I remember looking at getting black when I bought mine in 07), and is still an option for the jazz bass. There is no black precision listed as an AVRI on Sweetwater. Yes, I can see the prices, that's why I said you can see the price drop on Sweetwater.

    No, the Sweetwater Bass Gallery. They have a black jazz. The jazz's have been offered recently and was actually the first color to take the price drop, it seems. I think we've established the black precision as a (up until 2008) standard offering. So does anyone have any other info on the new (if it is coming) AVRI line? Again, what is there to revamp, aside from colour?

    No info has been released yet with regards to new AVRI basses. Only information about the guitars is available currently.
