    Listed are my four AV reissues - 57 p, 62 p and two 62 jazzes. There serial numbers are V007XXX, V009XXX, V041XXX and V044XXX respectively - indicating (I think) 1982, 1983, 1988 and 1989. The red jazz is definately not of the same build quality as the p basses.

    I don't have any experience of more recent AV reissues but my guess is that probably now the Custom Shop basses have replaced the quality level of the early AV reissues and that accordingly, to differentiate the product the quality of the latest AV's has been downgraded.
