I'm looking for a nice vintage sounding pbass to put flats on it and I came across a 57 AVRI P for a very good price. The bass is 8.5lbs and has honest wear/relic on it! Just wondering if the 57 AVRI are considered as good instruments between the different AVRI Pbass models. For example, I know the 63' are getting lots of love. I read that there isn't a big difference between the US and AVRI 57 models. Also, is 2004 a good year for AVRI basses? I know that this decade wasn't the greatest from Fender in general! Anyway, looking for an excuse if I should drop the bank on a new bass. GAS is hitting me again! Thank you!
