Finally got a working picture. Here is my new CVC I picked up brand new on craigslist for $250 !! Still had all the plastics when I bought it. I LOVE this thing. The setup is perfect, the nut is cut perfect, the frets are perfect. Perfect action right out of the box. The first thing I notice is this.. I was trying out some American Professional tele's at GC the other day and I noticed that when I hit the low E string, I didn't get that nice metallic hollow sounding *thud* if you know what I'm talking about. It was just kind of mushy sounding and lacked definition. This really confused me as this was a 1500$ tele. But this CVC gives me that tone.. I am perplexed How can I find out what year this was made?
