I'm loving the CV Tele line and already have a CVC. I've only had just about an hour with her so far, but we've already started to bond. The flame maple neck is beautiful and I personally like the wood grain pattern on this one. Hats off to Sweetwater for posting pictures of the actual guitar you are going to buy including the weight of each one. I believe this one is 8 lbs 3 oz. I was thinking that being pine it would be a bit lighter, but it was actually the lightest and the best looking one (IMO). Auto-moved to Squier forum?
