    Explain. Neck shifts when putting on new strings? bends out of shape. I don't believe it is a quartersawn maple which they wanted more vintage. Not that all quartersawn necks are more stable but in general some are slightly more stable dependent on the cut. Especially coming from a bass Luthier. Plus its a newer bass. But over all these are really nice sounding basses. I know some like the AV basses better and some say the AO is better. But in reality like all fenders some are better than others. Glad you love yours. I feel lucky having it.

    Don’t forget there was the AV which came after the AVRI, but prior to the AO. The differences aren’t negligible between either (depending on the user of course).
     
  3. :D Well ... err ... it’s not exactly a prosperous period; I guess my CS time will have to wait although, to use Fender’s words, I may be ready even now :):D in any case, as somebody was suggesting, I may wait some time to get my AO reliced enough to be disguised as CS instrument ;)

    does anyone notice the neck and body of the american originals to feel both sticky and slightly rough?
