    Hi

    Just got my first telecaster today. It's a classic vibe custom in Olympic white. I can't find much about the white version of it. Is it literally the same as the current sunburst?

    Many thanks

    Yes it's the same guitar in white. I'm dying for one in white. Maybe next year when I can afford one. Searching for work will be the death of me.

    Beautiful!

    Are they making them again or is this from a few years ago?

    It's a Fender Special Run (FSR). There's a black with white binding too. Both beautiful. I think they only make 250 of them. You got lucky, well done.

    Yeah, they made 250 in black and 250 in white for US sales, from what I’ve been told, and same as the CVC burst. I have a black version, it’s the bees knees. I made a partscaster out of it. The reborn guitar is the best Tele I currently own and perfect for me. Before I made it mine (the neck is retired with me permanently):

    I very nearly didn't go for it. The guy selling it on a local facebook selling page listed it as a vintage blonde 50s and the picture was so bad, I couldn't see the binding on it. With it having a rosewood fretboard and the Vintage blondes having a maple, I almost ruled it out as either a partscaster with a cheaper squier neck or just a white affinity or something..definitely not a CVC. Anyway, I persuaded him to send me some more pics and spotted exactly what it was. I didn't bother correcting his mistake, I just went and grabbed it before someone else did, beat him down by £50 too!

    I have one of these too. I got it from my local Fender dealer. Sat on the wall for 2 years. Saw it and liked it. Went home with me. I put an Electrosocket and Switchcraft jack in it. Also had a 5 way switch put in it. Couldn't get a 4 way. So I got the series sound and the Strat out of phase sound as well. I can't play for spit. But I love this guitar.

    Great score! I'm not a sunburst fan, and wish Squier would do more colors for the CVC. You grabbed a good one.

    Here's my FSR CVC. The only change I've made is to add an Electrosocket. I've tried to sell this guitar a couple times. I'm so glad I didn't. It outplays guitars costing several times as much.
