Seems like a decent hard wood according to Wiki. I wonder what the weight will be like? Hmm.
Looking forward to hearing reports from the guinea pig first run of these.
I played a jaguar CV and wasn't impressed with the quality.
I might be tempted to get something from the range in about a year when the bugs are sorted. Hope they do a p90 tele bound goldtop and use those p90s they put in the tele custom 2's
The 50s Strat is Pine, just like the 50s Teles, but the CVC Tele with bound body and the 60s Strats are Nato. Hmm, if it's like mahogany, won't it be darker sounding than Alder, Ash, Poplar, or Basswood?
Uh Oh!....here we go!......
It's already July and barely getting to the annual tone wood threads? Ah, but it's early for the Airing of Grievances ritual! Let me start..."tone wood is a myth..."
I'll be picking one up
I can see why the Starcaster failed. It's Fugly.
Never mind. Squier web-site has not been updated!
That link shows the blond CV 50's tele costing over 1k au.
Zooming in the pics still shows made in china. Not sure if they have updated yet.
I paid $220 for my 50's blond inc delivery from America to Australia. It was a customer return but still, that's a big price hike. Must be penal colony rates.
I assumed it was up to date, Chunkocaster. Of course, we know what happens when we assume.
I'll revise my post. Thanks for the "heads up"!
It may still be current and they just haven't taken new pics, wouldn't be the first time Fender got the specs wrong. The other models listed at $899 are about right according to AU retail prices. Out dollar is down a hole atm. This and we always get overcharged anyway may explain the high prices.
The link shows it to be made in Indonesia. Different headstock, frets, pickups to the old Chinese model.
Not on the AU site I was redirected to. We have a different site to keep people ignorant about the pricing differences. I've been aware about them for years hence nearly all my gear being imported.
I rescinded my earlier post. Thanks, again.
Yeah, I chose not to be redirected, on the UK site it's still showing the Chinese model.
No probs, keep it in mind if you ever need to sell gear we get charged nearly double the price so you can get good prices if you list internationally. Unfortunately the exchange at the moment doesn't help us much but buying used from America still works out cheaper for us most of the time so I usually shop for used in America on ebay.
I like the new 60s CV Thinline. The original MIC model had a dark brown stain and pale, pale maple neck. The MII version suggests a mellowed stain and a tinted neck--sweet. The new "Squier" logo is cartoonish, like bubble letter or comic sans ultra.
But cmon, the "star' of the show is the Starcaster...
I have a Vintage Modified Strat that was made in Indonesia, and made well.
I have Epiphones that were made in Indonesia, my '62 Sorrento re-issue, and my '56 Gold Top re-issue. I have had no issues.
