    I’ve read somewhere production of CVs has moved from China to Indonesia?
    So this beckons the question. Are the CVs still punching above their weight?

    I love mine, it's my go-to guitar and has been to many open mics. However--I'm not sure that the new ones are exactly the same as mine, you might want to do some research. When I bought mine, they were $399.99 and then they were gone all of a sudden in that color combo. Not sure if they still have any of that one in the white, but something has been changed.

    That’s what I was gonna say. Luckily, you can see the weights on Sweetwater.

    The early CV’s were SUPER light and really resonant.......totally wonderful guitars, but you gotta like thin necks. Cause they are thin.

    But yeah, these are great Tele’s period. Regardless of price.

    Absolutely Rich! You won't be disappointed. I love mine. Warning, they can be addicting! :- )
    PS: Ebay has inexpensive hard shell cases that fit mine perfectly. Glarry brand. Do a search for "Straight Flange Electric Guitar Hard Shell Case" and see the results.

    Classic Vibes are great guitars for the money ... and very good guitars regardless of the price.

    The ones i've tried were boat anchors,and those skinny necks are not for me,i'd go with a used Baja myself.

    That’s a good point. I’ve admittedly never played one of the Indonesian examples. The early Chinese CV’s were incredible though. I had 5 or 6 of them.

    To think I suggested you only needed two. I really am something of an amateur on this form

  16. I will be the stick in the mud. I have tried a few squires, classic vibe and all. Yes they are affordable, but they never felt just right to me. I say save and get a decent one, that you actually play first, and comes with a case.

    While the Squier CV's are really good, Im waiting to check them out myself especially that they moved manufacturing to Indonesia.. the China made ones were absolutely shocking in quality and tone.. given that "I think" the pickups were toneriders and those were being manufactured in the other room...

    If you can chase an older model, the ones made in china, you can buy these sight unseen and have a gig worthy telecaster..

    Funny you mention the Baja . @TSims1 actually recommended one to me many years ago and said it was the best bang for the buck Tele
