    Hello I have. CV telecaster and I Have to say it plays really good. Its about the all about the components And the material that they use for to build it. Dont worry for the Pine body, it has almost the same characteristics than the ash.

    My CV 50s BSB Tele was delivered yesterday,i just tuned it,adjusted the pickups
    and played.Amazing piece for the money,only thing i could complain about is,
    the chrome on the bridge is not perfect,everything else on the guitar is 100%.

    It'll be worth it. I ordered mine as soon as I found out they were making them left handed. They still come with the great setup and everything right out of the box. The price tag is a little bit higher for us, but I was fine with that. I got it during a Fender rebate month so I paid the standard price anyway.

    This thing really saved the day for me. I wanted a tele really bad, and before this and the affinity came out you could only get the MIM standard, MIA standard, and AV52RI. So really I was saved from the ASAT tribute I almost bought. I don't think I would have liked it as much.

    Thanks guys. Well I gotta say I'm 90% sold on the CV50, on account of them being damn good value, and of course opinions from forums like this one, with just 10% hankering for a MIM Standard in lake placid blue. Without trying either and getting a better deal with mail order.

    Would i prefer the MIM? I don't want to get it wrong, but I just don't know ... on paper, they're very similar spec of course with both necks being the same modern C shape, just the picks up and the 3 vs 6 saddle bridge being different as far as I can see, so I guess it must come down to the finish, color and the sound, which is the most important thing ....

    I love my blonde CV 50. It is better than the MIM Standard from all that I read on this forum. For a MIM Tele you have to go up to a more expensive model, and still the CV is still better to many.

    I just bought a vintage blonde CV Tele and I am pretty happy about it. Maybe I shouldn't have read all the hype about it because as much as I like it it didn't blow me away like most people say. I used to have a Diego Tele (basically a partscaster from germans answer to Warmoth Göldo) which was really great but had soso pickups. In a haze of misjudgement i sold it which i regret. The neck in comparison was a real baseball bat which i like. On the CV the neck is very nice but more on the thin side which makes for a janglier tone. The Diego in comparison was thicker in tone. Anyway that ship has sailed and in all fairness i must say the Diego costs double. All in all the CV is a great guitar and will become the one i grab first when I want to relax and jam around. Eventually i'd like to hear the Alnico V pickups of the BSB in comparison. There's two minor things that bug me but they are more of cosmetic nature: the pickguard should be thinner and not as glossy (i know i know, first world problems) and the sawmarks of the fretwork on the neck are not pretty.

    He suffers as I do in that he's left handed. The only MIM Tele available left handed is the Standard. No Classic 60's or Bajas for us.

    I do love me some BSB CV50 though :D

    greetings from Bakersfield, CA.
    i have 2 CV 50's teles and a CV 50's strat.changed the p'ups in all three. only music vintage blues in the BSB, only music lone stars in the VW and tex mex in the strat. ok, my question is, the VW is heavier than my BSB and the knobs are flat headed, not rounded. and, the serial starts with CSRG. i believe it's an '08. i thought all CV teles were pine. there is a hefty difference btween the 2. and, there was before the p'up change too. any ideas?
    thanks
