    I got this coming my way. Well technically it’s already mine. That is, it’s in my house already, but I’m keeping it in a gigbag in my bedroom, until my birthday, which is 8 February. I’m as excited as a little kid on Christmas Eve! O.k., what have we got here? As most of you will have guessed, this is a Squier FSR Classic Vibe 50s Esquire, in Butterscotch Blonde, produced in 2020. I bought it new from a local dealer. I did play it once, already (but don’t tell anybody!;)) and I really liked how it felt and sounded. But, as I mentioned, I’ll have to wait two more weeks, until my wife and kids will give it to me as a birthday gift. Can’t wait!:)

    I really like that!

    I’ve been mulling over the Squier CV 50s series myself.

    Enjoy!

    I love the look of that guitar, but the waiting... you are made of sterner stuff than me!

    Congratulations!

    Happy early birthday. You are the kind of guy that could quit smoking cold turkey. Solid steel will power.

    Thanks, everybody!:)

    It's taking every ounce of strength I got!;)

    CVs are excellent! I say go for it!

    Meditation is helping me get through these hard times.;)

    Giving up smoking was easier than this.:)

    I do take it out of that gigbag every night, just to hold it and look at it for a bit, when the kids are in bed and my wife's in the shower.;)

    I knew you were a person of great merit....we share the same birthday!

    I don't know how you celebrate it, but I am very traditional by nature. So, I have always celebrated my birthday the same way.....at 7 pm, I race to the hospital and pay a nurse to spank me until I cry.

    Cheers!

    Well my Sisters B-Day is the 10th and one of her son's is the 9th. LOL. So we got three days in a row covered.

    So... can you guys explain to me what the switch does on an Esquire?
