Checking in to this thread - just picked up a Squier CV Tele (Sunburst, bound, RW neck) as a way to dip my toes in the tele pool (I've got a '90 Tele Plus, but this doesn't really get me the true tele vibe). The previous owner shielded the guard, swapped pickups for a set of Bill Lawrences and upgraded to CTS pots. Unfortunately, he was a hack with a soldering iron and used some terrible speaker wire to get it together, so this needed to be redone. I've got it with my tech now for a 4-way switch, treble bleed cap, rewire and new jack. The neck is a bit on the thin side for me. Does anyone have a recommendation for an aftermarket neck (rosewood board, skunk stripe) that will get me a bit more girth without breaking the bank? I can't imagine spending a ton to replace the neck when the guitar didn't cost much to begin with. What about the tuners - is it worth it to upgrade? If so - any recommendations for a drop in replacement? Thanks!
