    I wonder if my selling the original pick-guard with the (actually not bad at all) "Duncan Designed" SC-101's in it so I could drop in a loaded with CTS pots/Mojotone pick-ups custom guard disqualifies this one from consideration. 2018 Vintage Modified 70's Strat in FSR trans-blue. In every respect very well made. With high end pots/switch/PU's as good as anything out there.

    PS: what the hell is "synthetic bone" anyway ? It sounds better than "plastic" but it's not really that highly considered is it ?

    Hey I can't find any info on what a "synthetic bone" nut is really made of, I'm assuming plastic but what exactly qualifies it as "synthetic BONE" ? What gives it any bone like quality ? I really (cynic me) think it might just be marketing mumbo jumbo. Is it actually bone like ?

    It's real, genuine plastic, imitation bone.

    They're good. The pickups are as good as you'll get in a Squier (stock) but I still didn't like them. But the rest of it is great. Ok, I changed out the pots and switch too. Friggin' rocks out now.

    I actually bought a body from Stratosphere off that guitar - I originally did have it set up like in the picture with the large headstock and black parts, but eventually switched things around and now it's got a "Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scotts" vibe..

    very hard to say...I believe the VM line is as good as the CV line.
    I've had many of each, and it would depend on a lot (type of music played, etc).

    Right now though, it would be this:

    Yeah I find the VM's and CV's are pretty much equal in terms of quality.

    Even though I'm a tele player only, but I know the Squier quality levels. I would definitely go for the CV 70s HSS strat in walnut... that is STUNNING (I wish there was a 70s tele CV in walnut).

    I would also definitely go for a humbucker in the bridge position, so it would be either an HSS or HH configuration.

    If there was a SSS version of the Walnut CV 70s, I'd be very tempted by that. I also played a Contemporary Squier in White that was HSS--that one sounded pretty amazing thru a Marshall tube amp!
