I have an AVRI....one big thing to me is the bridge....I don't like the tune o matic style bridges on the CPs.....I prefer the vintage shoe bridge. And the radius on the AVRI is more curved (7.25)....so you have to get used to that.
But I love my AVRI.....amazing guitar....but if you don't mind the bridge and prefer a 9.5 radius, go with the CP
+1 for the CP jags. They are a great platform for modding and experimenting with pickups and such. All the mij's and the avris have the wonky bridges... thats pretty subjective though some people love them.

The best thing you can do is play them - as the pickups and bridge systems are very different, as are the necks.
Both are great guitars but both are supremely idiosyncratic, as they're Jaguars. You'll love it or hate it.
How would you describe the differences between the necks and pickups Mike?
