For anyone that missed the boat on the batch they did with the 62's it looks like they have started it back up with the 65's. only Jazzmasters and only in Aztec Gold but considering how long it took to sell all those 2007-8 models (There were plenty to choose from when I got mine in 2012) this may be it. I think the price is no different or the same as the standards so it might be something for some one to consider

Sweet!<br /> <br /> But I'm glad I got mine back during the first run.<br /> Prices were significantly lower. And for a while the Thinskins were actually cheaper than the AVRI's at the time - right after the AVRI's had a price increase. If memory serves, my Thinskin was $1499 while the AVRI's were $1699. Something in those ranges, anyway.<br /> <br /> And being ash in White Blonde, mine was actually called a '59RI (I think the Sunburst over ash was the same).

Yes- this run seems to be about the same situation (same price or less than standards) but they try to up the ante with finish and interesting necks. wonder if more will come. That is the exact same color as my 62 av jag.
