    Traded my tele today for this beauty. Both parties are very happy with the swap. Haven’t really had a chance to play yet, but she feels great. Soft V a definite change from the modern C I’m used to, but why not have some differences! Hoping I dig the pups when I set it up.

    Very nice, hngd.

    I have a mint Player with the modern C neck. I'd swap necks with you if you can't get along with that V after awhile.

    I recently bought the same guitar, but a Squier, same color etc. It has the soft V neck and I really like it! That was a pleasant surprise that has me taking a look at thicker neck shapes.

    Thanks man…going to give it a go for awhile. Actually feels pretty comfy. Glad that I finally came out of a trade feeling like I did well.

    Pretty much identical! I didn’t know the CV’s had a soft V. I was going to buy one awhile back, but the seller flaked on me. That’s a beauty.

    Same here. I’ve wanted one for awhile. Had candy apple in the past, but it didn’t quite do it for me. I prefer the party!

    I have a Mustang in Fiesta Red. I’d love a Strat to add next to it!

    I would love to get the specs on this, but I always have trouble finding specs. I would swear the finish is nitro.
