    Welcome to the forum! As far as I know, the Classic vibes have always been full thickness.

    Yes they are. The Squier SE's are full thickness as well.

    It's my understanding that the only ones which are not are the Bullet and Affinity

    So my deluxe squire is full too?. Cool, I never knew that. Another question I have is why is my deluxe Daphne blue strat way heavier than my CV 50's? When I pick them both up the deluxe about strains my arm compared to the CV. Anyone know what kind of wood my deluxe is and what my CV is?. My CV is a few years old, probably a 2012 or so give or take a year, my deluxe is probably 2010 give or take a year.

    Some of it comes from the higher quality components in it and just the wood itself is very different from one guitar to the other, chances are you grab an other deluxe same year/model and feel them totally different. That is the beauty of having a lot of guitars

    .

    All the 'full thickness' inquiries revolve around putting 'big block' trems in guitars.
    Don't believe all the rumors and snake oil about big block 'sustain' and 'tone!' ... it is all make believe fantasy. Try/own enough guitars and you'll see for yourself.

    LEFT - SQUIER AFFINITY 2005
    MIDDLE - SQUIER CV50 2008
    RIGHT - SQUIER DELUXE HOTRAILS 2018

    It's actually not full thickness. The Deluxe on the right is full thickness, and the CV is a little thinner. Barely. Enough to see it side by side. The edges and corners are more rounded as well on the CV, so in the hands it feels a little nicer. It's also the lightest of them all, surprisingly, considering the Affinity is the thinnest and the Deluxe is basswood.
