    Hi guys

    Finally I did it... after months of search and patience.. I finally spotted a Classic Vibe here in local market (in Egypt)..

    The guitar is very decent and solid... sounds good and gives a different mood when you play it..

    Theoretically, I should be done now with guitars.. I have the 4 main categories of electric guitars and my GAS is at ease.. at least for some time :D

    I love it that the Squires we used to cringe about, have turned into affordable players guitars. A friend of mine bought his daughter a single hb Strat for Xmas, and it flat out rocks! Played it through his 5150 and loved it.

    First, Congrats to the OP as the CV Tele holds its own against far more expensive guitars.

    That said, while I love my CV Tele, but I don't know if i agree with Fenders marketing.

    Clearly, they intended for the CV's to elevate the Squire brand, but it is a near impossibility to overcome that long established cringe factor and these guitars would carry more weight on the market with a Fender decal on the headstock.

    Congrats! I love my CV50's and CV Custom Teles. They get played as much as my more expensive axes.

    It is just different... and way different than my Am Sp. strat..
    1. The Tele is heavier
    2. The sound is totally different especially the bridge pickup... very twangy on the Tele !!
    3. Even the neck is so different than the strat

    Yeah, the CV50's Teles can be heavy... Mine's almost 10 lbs! But it sounds so good and plays so well that I try to overlook the weight.. :)
