Hello, I find myself yearning for guitar related satisfaction once more but without the means to finance anything up to the standards of which I had previously been used to.. Which now leads me to my question. I need a guitar, just one, to last me..it needs to be sturdy as soon I will move back to my house in Thailand, where the humidity is extreme so that rules out trems, semi acoustics and Gibson-esque weak spots. I concluded that a tele would be perfect, very strong and with that wonderful raunchy Wilco Johnson tone. My financial situation is dire so that rules out the USA AV series that I lust after but I don´t think that I´d be satisfied with an Affinity, plus I really want that vintage spec and look but I fear that the pine bodies of the CV series may be too soft? Strap buttons ripping out etc? So I am seriously considering the Squier CVC as a modding base for a lifetime companion at a reasonable cost. Do you think I am barking up the correct tree....what are my options?
