    Certainly looks okay you’ll have to let us know how the new indo squiers play

    I bought a van jaguar I just can’t get along with because of the skinny neck

    That neck looks like it’s got a nice quilt to it
    Back looks nicely matched too

    Wow, that's a real looker. What's the body made out of? (I've read that they can be Poplar or Maple)

    It is. It comes in maple and oplar depending on the finish. The sunburst model being poplar tho it doesn't say on the fender site. But sweetwater shows that and i called fender and they also said as much. Why they only mention maple on the fender site i have no idea.

    I’ve been thinking about getting one of these as well. How are the pups in this?
    Some high end clarity?

    It's Maple and the CV 60s Thinline is Nato. I just got the new Indonesian CV 70s Strat and a couple of things are a little cheaper than the Chinese CV Strats (the bridge saddles and switch), but overall I think it plays and sounds better than my Chinese CV 60s Strat. I love it! It compares more favorably to my Mexican and American Strats than the Chinese one IMO.

    Your link , when I click it , does not show a specific model of guitar

    All I found when I looked yesterday was …… https://shop.fender.com/en/intl/squ...dified-72-telecaster-thinline/0301280500.html

    this link takes you to a Squier 72 thinline , crafted in Indonesia , in sunburst … click the colour button and it brings up the natural finish model which looks a lot like what is at the beginning of this thread . Both of the guitars in the link I provided are built with an ash body

    so this is not what the original poster bought ?
