    Really nice and the colour is great. Squier seem to be making some excellent instruments. What's the neck like? Is it the normal slim C?

    I got this Daphne blue one about a month ago and it played lovely straight out of the box. From Andertons. They only had a few in this colour so I jumped on it.

    Not really. If it’s anything like the ‘50s CV, it can be pretty heavy.

    Nice guitar. How heavy is it, and how thick is the neck?

    I’ve had surf green one for a month now. It’s fabulous. In tune out of the box (a semi tone down) and the lowest action guitar I’ve got . Really pleased with it

    Mine is from Andertons last fall and weighs in 8.5 pounds, so not a light weight.

    Very cool dude. Aside from the maple board, always reminds me of this guy.

    My buddy picked one up. Thin neck and about 8lbs. Hope you enjoy yours.

    I haven't been able to play well enough to play loud. Broken thumb issues.

    And I did notice the top load option

    That's really nice, the maple fingerboard looks great with that pickguard and color, congratulations!

    Haven't had a chance to weigh it...I'm thinking 8-8.5 lbs. It's solid. I'm not sure what type of wood it's made from.

    The neck is a slim C shape, thicker then my CVC neck by far. Closer to my Squier tele Standard neck.

    HNGD - I love these things! The PuP is really vintage sounding on this. Definitely a guitar that punches above its weight.

    8 pounds + is what I've been told...
