Some nice grain on that one – most attractive.
Which brand of strings do most folks like on these?
I've been using Ernie Ball for 46 years, their Stainless ones for thirty or so and tried their M-Steels last year with very highly satisfactory results. At present I'm giving Elixir Nanoweb strings a trial on a few guitars; current impressions are favourable. I use gauges 9–42 on all electric guitars.
It's does look pretty nice. Put 10s on it tonight & tweaked truss rod again slightly. Action is maybe a tiny hair high but I kinda like Teles that way so will likely leave the saddles & nut alone.
I'm talking splitting hairs to improve it anyway. I adjusted the bridge pup height just a smidgen from my first go to add a touch of bass. Might adjust the neck pup height when I change the pickguard to something not so thick...maybe.
It is a really nice sounding guitar & I've had nothing but nice Teles. I like the stock tone way more than the CVC I got a few years ago.
My new CV Thinline.
Love those CVs. Almost picked up that same one awhile back. The weight on those is awesome and sound great.
You won't believe how much better is sounds with paisleys on it...
Classic Vibe Telecaster: s/n CGS1012813
Gave my CV 50s BSB the Albert Collins conversion
Hello!! ....nothin'special...but this one is my beloved C.V. 50's I've fit Elixir 0,9-0,46
Hey Texas, which humbucker did you throw in there? Did you stay with the stock pots? Still have the stock bridge PU in there?
I've been contemplating don't this to my CV as well.
I actually had an epiphone humbucker from an old Les Paul that I stuck in there the pots and switch were the originals however even though it sounded great I converted it over to an Esquire and wired me up a couple of CTS pots and a Fender 3-way switch wired up with the modified Eldred wiring. What's on a week's vacation down south Texas and came across a couple of other pawn shop prizes
hey Squier Affinity Telecaster which I left primarily stock for now only thing I've done is put amp knobs on the tone and volume and swapped out some of the tuners which were broken. And swapped out the white pickguard for a black 5 screw 1 ply guard
Just got this Vintage Blonde to add a tele to my main strat. I'm really impressed with this guitar and overwhelmingly so for the cost. May eventually put compensated saddles or a 6-saddle bridge on it - intonation is a real challenge on the 5th and 6th strings. But otherwise, it's great.
Serial # is CGS1623246

Hi guys! I´ve been out of the club for quite a bit, I was Telecasterless for a while, but Im back with a double bounded beauty that I scored for merely $200
I'm diggin' the rosewood board more than the maple of my former tele, also the neck shape is fantastic very well suited for my girlish hands haha
I don't own a CVC like yours, but a CV50 in VB among many other guitars. But you know what? It wouldn't surprise me a bit if I found I liked the CVC better than my double-bound Fender American Vintage '62 Custom Reissue, with which for various reasons I've never quite bonded in the ten-and-a-half years I've owned it.
CVC with Duncan'59's
Hey all. I'm new to the forums, however I've been doing a lot of learning the last few weeks by reading about Telecasters in general, and the Classic Vibe in particular. Thanks to all of you, I ordered a 50's CV last night in Butterscotch Blonde. Its going to be a rough couple of days waiting for it to be delivered, but I'll post pics when it arrives. Are we still keeping track of serial numbers?
The new BSB Tele arrived today from MF. The big brown truck even managed to get it to me a day early. Arrived in great shape. I've gone over it several times and can't find anything wrong or out of place. Needed tuning but that's to be expected after spending the last few days in warehouses and trucks. Thanks to all of you who sold me on this guitar.
Squier Classic Vibe sighting!
Ya gotta love that--not only a Squier in that video but also an Epiphone. They didn't spend more than $500 on instruments for that video and what great music!
