    It is obvious that Squier made some big changes to their classic vibe series...
    Wood, hardware...

    But now my question.
    Anybody who knows for sure, if the neck of a brand new 2019 Squier CV '50s tele, is still a one piece maple neck?
    If i look at the pictures on the site of Thomann Germany, i could swear it is a two piece maple neck...

    Good eyes, sir... Looks like a maple cap (that line, parallel to -and above- the nut) and a skunk stripe on Thomann site. Or is it a trick of the light or something?

    I would be surprised if that is a maple cap neck. They don't do that on cheaper Squiers AFAIK. I really think that's a shadow or reflection in the pic above.

    As far as the pickguard mounting screws for the neck pickup, the recent MIC Classic Vibes had those - at least in several photos and EBAY ads I have seen for the 50s Butterscotch Blonde model. I have also been looking at one in a local shop that is that way - a very recent MIC one. That one seems pretty light and has very attractive pine wood grain, as well as flame in the neck. Been thinking about that one quite a bit! Another odd thing about that particular guitar is that the writing on the back of the headstock is applied parallel to the neck, not parallel to the tuners. Never recall seeing that before on CV's.

    Good catch. Sure looks like a 2-piece. I’m really hoping to get to play one of these soon. Lower price, now with a bone nut and narrow tall frets (old ones were medium jumbo). If the necks are a little thicker and maybe if the poly finish were a bit thinner, I would simply have to have one of these.

    The previous MIC run will be missed - too bad to lose the alder and the Tonerider pickups, but if you don’t like the new pups, upgrade with some Bootstraps to taste!

    Fender use generic pics and descriptions all the time. I would wait until someone actually has one in their hands to know what they consist of.
    Stores were taking pre orders on roadworn 60's strats advertised as having rosewood necks for months before people started receiving them with pao ferro necks.

    It's a fine line between the old bait and switcheroo gag and just running a incompetent marketing department that fails to accurately list products specs and pics.

    well, its not a CV50s, but this CV Thinline neck is MII (ICS19xxx) - and sure looks, to me at least, to be one-piece

    I was taking a look at Sweetwater's guitar gallery and none of the maple neck 2019 Squiers (real ones, not stock pictures) seem to have a maple cap. I think we get the impression that one posted above has a maple cap either because it's a mock-up or there's something weird going on with the lighting.
