    but not the one I was there for. I was there for a hot little red number I had seen a week earlier when I was in there buying strings. A beautiful guitar that looked different from anything else I had ever seen, it was a local build but sadly it was a mess the neck needed work, it didn't play well and didn't sound all that good either.
    Sitting next to it was a Squier Classic Vibe 60's Thinline Tele that look pretty nice as well. It plays well and sounds a 100 times better than the red one. I've read a lot of good things about Squiers CV line and I already had a Squier Contemporary Jazzmaster so I was starting to believe that Squier had upped their game (Anybody know what the difference is between the Contemporary and the Classic Vibe?).
    Anyways, getting to the good stuff I bought the Thinline. After living with this thing for about a week now, I think I did the right thing, it's really a pretty nice guitar.

    Congratulations!
    I was watching a rerun of “Daryl’s House” the other day (w/Sammy Hagar), and Daryl was playing a thinline identical in color to that. Don’t know what the headstock said.
    Very cool!

    Good one!
    Always refreshing to pick up a Thinline after playing 8+ lb solid bodies.
    Contemporary model will have 2 humbuckers.
    cheers

    Looks very nice!!! The Squier Thinlines are great- I have the 72 VM one with the WRHB pickups. Very nice build.

    Love that colour. It's like a perfect heirloom tomato.
