I've owned a 2010 CV50s Tele in Vintage Blonde since I bought it used and including a good gig-bag for £175 (GBP) later the same year. That would be roughly $270 USD. I've always found it a delightful little guitar to play; the neck suits me perfectly, the overall build quality is excellent, the weight is moderate, the hardware may be a bit cheap and cheerful but there's not a thing actually wrong with it and the pickups provide a good robust range of tones. I've gigged it extensively with no problems at all and in my experience it's well up to professional use. The Squier CV is only one of six Teles I own but in some ways I actually prefer it to my much more expensive American Vintage '62 Custom. Everyone I know who has a Squier CV guitar has nothing but praise for them.
