Ive been thinking about this for a few days see what you guys think of this idea and see if it would work. One of my good friends is a Fender dealer and also an authorized repair center. The CV Teles are great but there are a few parts that could use some improvment. Mostly the pots switch knobs and other hardware. How would you guys like to order a new CV thats already had these less than great parts replaced with better parts? There could also be different stages of mods. Stage 1 A completly new control panel like the 52ri uses with CTS pots a good switch and an orange drop cap and real Fender knobs. Basicly the same control panel the 52ri uses with a different cap. Stage 2 All the things from stage 1 with the bridge and pickups from a 52ri or Nocaster or 62 USA ri Fender and a bone nut. Stage 3 Everything from stage 1 and 2 with a nice tweed case like the 52ri comes in. Basicly a deluxe version of the CV's They would all have the warranty cause the dealer is an authorized reoair center and he would honor the warranty. The guitar itself would be the same price as MF sells them for. Each stage would have a different price depending on what the parts cost and the labor to do the work. I think this would be a great idea for people who arent real handy with mods and they could get a killer guitar for not a lot of $$ that would be better than a stock CV. One reason this might not work is the best part of any CV is the low price under $400 for any of them. The added mods would of course cost more which might kill the beat bang for the buck reputation these CV's have.. So thats why I need yout guys opinions. Do you think this would work or do you think the CV's are good enough as is?
