    That is a simple but very effective way to soup up your trem block.
    I like it!

    Funny, my CV with the gold pickguard is actually a bit less trebly and a bit fatter sounding than my other two Strats.

    Just goes to show ya, every one is unique.

    Isn't that the great thing about Strats!? Each individual guitar (same model) sounds different. I have a Yamaha 502, with P90's. A fantastic guitar...but my mate's 502 sounds EXACTLY the same. Two of my other mates CV 50's sound different from each other and different from my CV 50's. I've got 4 Strat's and my CV is the one I always pick up to mess about with. I use it a lot at gigs too, in preference to the other Strats, as it's so comfortable to play.

    They all have that "Strat" sound, though!

    Nucem I just bought a used version of this CV-60's from our local Guitar Center.

    CGS080500528

    They had it tagged as a "Used Squier Standard Stratocaster Sunburst" and let it go for $156. (Now I have to wait for a few days because in our locality, they have to report used guitar serial numbers to the local police department in case there was a theft.)

    Been looking casually for a 50's CV strat the last few weeks, then, here on vacation, went in a local guitar store and they have a 2009 in Lake Placid Blue and maple neck.

    Bodys got a few minor dings, the neck looks flawless with little wear, serial CGS0903xxx.

    At $295 I hesitate, hoping to do better, but sure is tempting when its in your hands. As the guys said "takeoff the neck and put it in the luggage" and I certainly would do that.

    Might offer $250 ... still too much?

    Depending on the location/size of the dings............. ~$295 (or slightly less) out the door would be a reasonable 'deal'.

    How do I add mine to the list? Just list it here (and some mystery man will add) or cut and paste from the last listing??

    I have a pair of the CV 60s - a red 60s strat and a cvc custom tele sunburst - i paid around $225 each. They are both fantastic guitars for the money. The necks are a little thin for my liking but for $225, it's hard to complain given the great pickups and finish on both.

    I paid $225 for each of mine and they were brand new conditions with tags. I would say offer $225. That's what they sell for (not what they are listed for but what they actually go for). If they don't take $225, hit up ebay and wait for one to be auctioned off. You'd be hard pressed to find one at auction sell for more than $250. They usually go for $200-$225.

    A funny thing though on the CV ... the serial number is 2008, but when I removed the neck the date stamp was January 2009.

    So unless those Cmen were on the pipe, they intentionally add the serial number first and stamp the date later, since both are on the one neck

    That's a sweet build.

    I'm very tempted to mod my Surf Green Bullet with a set of CV 60's pups. The Bullet pups are "OK" but I just Love the sound of those CV's :thumb:

    To add your CV: Edit the last version of the list and paste into this thread.
