    I think you missed the “load more” button at the bottom of the page. The CV lineup is still alive and well.

    I think Squier has a bunch of stuff coming out soon. Some alternative universe (or whatever they call it) “leaked” around NAAM.

    Not the same quality especially the playability of the neck.

    I disagree. How may current models from Indonesia have you played to reach that conclusion?

    After owning two MIC Tele's and a CV MIC 60 strat which all were great and i regret selling them over the years I bought and sent back new 70's strat and 60's tele both fretted out on bends around the 15th fret and above. In addition on the strat the screws that hold springs and bridge in the back of the strat were put installed on an angle so that if I loosed the screws to float the bridge i couldn't put the cover back on. Also they no longer use pine or alder they now use nato and if thats not enough they no longer use tonerider pickups.

    Either you had bad luck on those instruments or I have had good luck on mine. Aside from needing a pro setup and some fret polishing, the neck is great. The pickups and electronics are just okay. I replaced both and have a nice instrument for $119 + upgrades.

    I had to raise the saddles on the B and E strings just slightly to stop bends from fretting out up the neck. The neck is perfectly straight. I was pleasantly surprised. Now the CV's may be a different story; I don't know.

    Nothing wrong with Indo necks whatsoever. The neck on my CVC 60s neck is as good as any Fender neck I've ever played.

    Europe has a Squirer Classic Vibe Esquire. Nice looking guitar, but only for Europe's finest...Much to my
    dismay.

    Your misinformed or must have found the odd ball. I have the Chinese 60's CV, and the Indonesia Esquire, the neck on my Esquire has ZERO playability issues, the same for my India made Vintage Modified neck.

    Some of the CV 50's are still made in China but not the CV 60's
