    I decided I had to have a Tele.
    Looked at two MIM Teles from craigslist; found construction issues with both so I passed. Started reading the forums here and got the impression the CV series we worth a look. Went to my local GC and bought this one. Materials may be an issue but the construction quality of this Chinese guitar is as good as I have seen on any Tele of any price. Thanks for all the threads and input, I'm very happy.

    I was bored at work on the graveyard and took to the pick guard with a dremel.
    I have a black PG on order but she is growing on me.
    Cheers

    I love a sunburst Tele w binding, never considered looking at CVs though, great idea. The 62 reissues ain't cheap. Whats the neck like? Congrats and enjoy.

    This is an old MIJ of mine...so not a CVC...but that body with a b/w/b will look hot! Though what you have is nice as well.

    The neck is very nice. I can get the action down to about 3/64" at the 12th fret with zero bussing using 10's. Not very chunky either.

    That guitar looks quite "perky". Contrats on your new twang plank, she'll serve you well.

    Very NIce guitar. I think the black pg really makes the guitar but I like what you have done with the one you have.
