    I've played the VM and dug it, but I have a chance to get a CV for a good price. Opinions? This would be my first Tele and I want traditional tele tones for blues & classic rock.

    VERY happy with my CVC, and have been for over a year

    I depends on what scale length and body type you prefer, the VM thinline is 24.75, the CV 25.5, for me the VM won out as I needed the shorter scale length, quality wise, the Duncan designed pups are gorgeous and with mine the the set up was great out of the box, and I'm very fussy as an ex guitar tech.

    I've got the VM Tele Special, and it's a great piece. I do like the bound body on the CVC, though.

    The poll has become pretty brutally one-sided.

    Haven't played a VM personally but I have played several CVCs and they've all been excellent. Like, all of them. Amazingly consistent, and consistently very good instruments.

    I expected the CVC to win...did NOT expect total landslide.
