I had a CV Thinline for a month or so, a few years ago. It was a nice looking, and good sounding guitar. The only reason I didn't keep it, was do to its seriously thin neck (I prefer chunky necks - like my MIM '69 Reissue Thinline has). Play a CV Thinline first before you buy one. If you like, or can live with its thin neck, then buy it.
