Avri Tele (sold)

Post by Dharmajester »

I've had this fella longer than anything else in my stash as it's a great guitar however purchase of a new Caster de Non (thanks Conway) forces me to move it on by way of minor recoupment.

Such a nice guitar, cool that it went to someone here. Everytime I see AVRI, I think of Avril Lavigne's signature Tele which actually looks pretty sweet minus that 12th fret inlay.

Never had a Nocaster before. I'd always assumed they would sound like any other Tele but not quite apparently. It's often written that a good LP sounds like a Tele on Steroids. Nah these things sound like a Tele on steroids. Bigger, bolder, rude and aggressive when you dig in. Extremely dynamic.
Great sounding gat but you'd expect for the price it would stay in tune for longer than five minutes ( strings appear to be sticking under the retainer on the headstock ) :roll:

Graphite. And maybe polish the underside of the retainer?

Yeah, I wondered why it stunk of hedge trimmer lanolin spray when it arrived. The round string retainers on the 50's models have little channels on the underside through which the E and B strings run. I've previously had good results by putting a taller washer underneath, reducing the amount of string depression.

Had a thought; how about a thin silicone washer between the retainer and the strings?

That'd do it, now I just need to find a silicone washer shop :lol:
Currently just running the B and E free ( above ) of the retainer with considerably more stable tuning than utilising it.
