    I will get it replaced with a new one under the warranty, but for that to happen the guitar has to be shipped over to Netherlands.

    I agree 100% with Vintage Brit - I think that my butterscotch CV is absolutely reminiscent of the Teles that I remember from the 60s - the pickups might be lesser quality but they definitely produce all the tones that American Teles produce (possibly less volume), and such great build quality - mine arrived in perfect playable condition and completely set up. I bought by mail order. Why would you pay more?

    I've had my CVC Tele for almost a year. Still love it! Only change has been .010 Dunlop strings.

    Missed my 67 tele custom, I had to get a CV Custom, I WILL swap with an Affinity maple neck though! Love it the way it is though...took a Scotch Bright pad to the finish on the rosewood neck.

    Lovely !

    Reg pickups , I think there is a failure rate of about 5 % considered normal in the industry , I read that somewhere.

    Very often , its just a matter of reflowing the tiny blobs of solder where the leads leave the flatwork.

    I received a bridge pickup , with faulty windings a few years ago , from a very respected winder here on TDPRI , it does happen...

    Here's my CV50. I bought it used and whoever had it before me had really abused the black pick guard. I replaced it with a new tortoise guard I got from Warmoth.

    I A/B'd the pickups with my 1980s Duncans, and found not much difference...I had to raise the neck pickup some.
    The nearest retailer is about a 5 hour drive from here (I'm REALLY stuck in the sticks!), So it will be quite a trek to get to GC and even FEEL the neck on an Affinity, so I can make the swap.

    Been lurking awhile... all the ooo'ing and aaa'ing over the CVs finally defeated me, I ordered the Vintage Blonde last night.

    My wife hit me. Pretty hard, actually.

    I am too inexperienced to form an opinion, but the amazingly low cost combined with reading literally hundreds of remarks like yours, in which this $350 guitar beats out [insert your much more expensive make/model here], pushed me over the edge.

    To justify myself, I did sell a nice guitar--an Ibanez classical acoustic/electric--for $200, which means my wife didn't hit me as hard as she might have. :)

    Even those who can't play, can have GAS. So my other guitars are a Mosrite Bluesbender (actually my pro cousin GAVE it to me, along with a Peavey Pacer), an Eastwood Delta 6 (real purty, but looking to sell), and a red Fender Custom Tele FMT HH.

    The Fender is way easier to play than the Mosrite, I don't know why. It just feels really good, is possibly the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen, and sounds great. Seems a little neck-heavy, and one of the headstock string guides gets loose occasionally. I'm looking forward to comparing the CV balance-point with the FMT, maybe I could put some lead weights in the body.

    The FMT is REALLY nice, but I still wanted a "Tele" Tele. I imagine most of you understand what I mean...

    Just found out, Nstuff has shipped my CV Tele!! Can't wait.

    P.S. I pulled out the Delta 6 last night, to get it ready for sale... made the mistake of playing it... it is awesome. Keeper. Sorry if anyone was getting the idea to make an offer. :) And now back to our regularly scheduled Telecaster love.

    I only have two CV teles, the 50's BSB and the CVC. They are awesome. So are my CV strats, I only have two of them also. A 50's and a 60's. I have American made guitars too. But nothing at all wrong with teh CV line. Awesome guitars.

    That is a beauty, where was it made?
    The reason that I ask is I just saw one, played one and now I want it, a lot
    It was made in China.
    Thanks

    That finish looks almost matte. I know the CVC's are high gloss. Did you remove the gloss with some wizard sorcery? - maybe it is just the light hitting it :p. These would be so wicked in a matte nitro finish to 'feel' the wood.

    I wonder what is in store for the future of the classic vibe?
