    Why? Because it looks, plays, feels, and sounds killer.[​IMG]

    I've had 3 Squiers but this CV 50's was the best of them:

    My only squier. It's an 01 Indonesian standard I bought last year on my honeymoon. Replaced the bridge with a 3 saddle version and put in a cheap artec bridge pickup. It's been a bit of a love and hate guitar. I love the neck but the body is very heavy and dense so not a whole lot of life to it. Then the switch went out about 4 months ago, I've replaced it 3 times to no avail so it's been sitting so I don't make it into firewood. I want to replace the body with a standard depth one but I'd have to replace the wife first since it has sentimental value.... Luckily the marriage to her is going better than with the guitar lol, it will be our first anniversary on the 24th.

    Just a little black Bullet Special, stock except for the knurled tele-style knob I added on the volume pot.

    A friend had this thing sitting around and every time I picked it up, I liked it more and more. Eventually he just gave it to me, amused at how much I seemed to love the little thing. "Every pot has a lid," he said.

    It's bright, present and responsive, and has lots of sustain. After lowering the pickup, raising the action slightly, stringing it with .011s and doing some minor intonation and trussrod tweaks afterwards, it feels and sounds just right to me. Having gotten away from high gain crunchy stuff for the most part, I never thought I'd bond with a one-humbucker guitar, but the inherent brightness/presence this thing seems to have works well with the humbucker and my playing style. Picking hand changes can really get a range of sounds out of this thing.

    my favorite squier is called 'the roguestock strat'....it a squier affinity that had been signed by the band sevendust. the guitar was given to me by a friend in orlando, and was unplayable...but i did a complete setup on it and it became a really good player. the neck on this thing is what i liked most...seems its a bit more chunky than my other strats and it feels good. it is completely stock, except i think the pickguard was changed. anyway, a bunch of us from strat talk decided to get together last august in petaluma, Ca and jam. a rehearsal space was rented and 11 of us showed up....we had a bass player, a drummer, and 9 guitar players, lol. anyway, i gave this guitar to the person who had travelled the farthest....all the way from france. all who were there signed it and she took it home, so now it sits in her jam area with her other music stuff. heres a vid and a pic.....(i got rid of the sevendust sigs)

    Yeah, this one is even better after I had my tech do a fret level and roll the edges. Practically plays itself.

    sold my 80s strat to help fund a martin 000 couple of months later I saw this hanging up in my local guitar shop and I thought " I miss having a strat around "
    Its a " Made in India " squier VM with a flame top and Duncan Design pickups ! plays and sounds better than my old one ever did ! So my only Squier is a happy accident
    ( it actually looks better IRL than in this Picture )

    The color is why I bought it. Can't stop looking at it! I almost bought the orange.

    I want to post this one up, since nobody else has. My 86 MIJ Bullet HST. Otherwise known as the "Melted Tele". Fantastic neck, great bridge bucker. I'll eventually upgrade the single coils to something better. It is kind of heavy due to the laminated body, but I love playing it and it makes me smile every time I go to pick it up.

    Hard call... but I'll go with the VM '72 Thinline. (1) My only maple neck.. wondering why I don't have more. Feels great. (2) Lightweight. (3) Something about the humbuckers on this one just does it for me. Second choice is the VM Jazzmaster, Love the pups and the lead/rhythm tone circuits. Don't have any complaints about the CV 60's Strat either.
