Fender American Vintage ‘57 RI “Ice Blue Metallic”

Definitely an available colour back in the day, but rarely seen in this colour. It’s my favourite of four ‘57’s RI I own (2 American, 2 CIJ). It’s lightweight, and best sounding - not sure if it’s the alder vs ash?

  2. Remeber these in catalog from 2001.
    Alder body wood for sure.
    Thanks for posting.

    Ash was only used on the trans white ones, all others were alder.
    Looks awesome!
     
  4. Yes that’s correct. I have one of the AVRI blondes in ash.
     
  5. Nice indeed :thumbsup:
    Another beautiful custom colour with a gold anodised pickguard is the Sherwood Green ...

    Looks good, especially with that pickguard.

    I remember playing an AVRI Jazz in that color. Looks great with the gold pickguard
