help a brother out here
To butcher a quote from a famous movie...
"The G.A.S is strong in this one"
I'm hoping they have the frets issue from before sorted out, and I hope those A5s(?) don't sound too harsh
I love my CV50s blonde from the first go-round, or I should say, I did after I put stainless frets on the first 7
I know a bunch of guys here have picked one up and are perfectly happy with theirs, hoping my experience is the same
I bought one in January and love it. The pickups are good, IMO. I don’t have an older CV to compare to though. The only thing I’m planning on changing is the saddles for compensated ones eventually.
Are you sure you’re getting an Indo? I’ve heard that some are still coming out of China.
Yeah, I've heard that too, and, I really don't know...we'll see I guess.
should show up today at some point
so it's here
Neck pickup DOA
Reverb (store) seller better make this right
Thats a bummer, how does it feel and play aside from that?
Feels and plays good, but it's noticeably heavier than my old blonde Squier CV50s. This BSB is 7 lbs even. Which, to me, that's a lot for a tele.
I'd say the sound of the bridge pickup (the only operational one) is not as good as my old one.
That's my initial gut reaction
So it's off to have the pickup repaired at my local fender certified authorized repair center. The reply that I got from the seller was I could call their guy, who thoroughly checks everything out before shipping, or take it to an authorized repair center. No apologies, no offers to make it up in any way, nothing. Less than stellar customer service, I would say
I'm sure it's a very simple thing, but if there's one thing that I did not need it was another project
I mean, if I called The sellers pre-shipment QA guy, what would that be? At best just him saying yes I did and me saying no you did not
Most likely BUT you never know till you try......there are some decent people still around, fingers crossed he/she is one
well I took the other option offered (drop it off to my local authorized fender service facility)
These things are supposed to go smoothly and leave the customer feeling valued, and that is not the case in this transaction
I bought a CV to do a partscaster project. The CV’s are great out of the box guitars for the price but there’s a reason they are priced so cheap.
Maybe yours worked when they shipped it and didn’t when it arrived.
My guess is there’s probably a cheap solder job that’s allowed an extremely cheap wire to break free.
Have you taken off the pickguard and control panel and looked under the hood?
If you have skilled enough hands to play the thing you’ve got skilled enough hands to grab a Phillips head screw driver and do some investigating.
It's in the shop.
If I knew beforehand that I was buying a project, I wouldn't have bothered
When you buy a stock Squier you are buying a project.
