    I am trying to identify which tele squier I have. It was made in China and the s/n is CGS1007416

    Could you post some pictures? The serial can only give us a year.

    Your serial should mean 2010.

    I checked my own serial database, and these seem to have a CGS-prefix (and a glossy neck):

    Classic Vibe 50s VB
    Classic Vibe 50s BSB
    Classic Vibe Custom (CVC)
    Classic Vibe '69 Thinline

    If my documentation is right, they were introduced respectively in 2008, 2011, 2010 and 2010. So If it as BSB Classic Vibe, my documentation is wrong (which would not surprise me).

    There are others with the same prefix too (but with a satin neck):

    VM '69 Thinline, introduced in 2007
    Joe Trohman 3-pickup tele, but that wasn't around until 2012.

    CGS will probably mean it's a Classic Vibe, because as far as I know the Chinese Affinity had CY-prefix in 2010.

    (The Strat serials and production locations are a bit more complex)

    But pictures could tell us a lot... like maple neck or not, like thinline or not, like... what model it is... :)
