Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar is very well made I have had it for three years. It fell a couple of times and still roars. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, this guitar is amazing. IT is what a strat is supposed to sound like and more. The neck pickups are great for playing a little dirty and the neck/bridge gives you the nice John Mayer sound! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I play lead guitar and my rhythm player has an American standard and and a custom strat. It was a little intimidating at first but the band always talks about how great my tone is. It sounds absolutely amazing through a super champ XD with a Ragin Cajun! OMG! I highly recommend a tube amp for this guitar! It takes your guitar from amazing to.... "Who is that"! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I love the SRV style color. The paint job is what you would expect. It does not look like a cheap guitar that's for sure.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? ery well engineered, everything was perfect and ready to go. General Your general opinion of this product. I know this phrase gets over used but these CV lines are the best buck for the bang. Try and beat their looks, quality and build. Let me know if you can top them. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is typical alnico V sound, fuller than the thin sound of alnico 3s. Still offers plenty of snap for biting lead. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Mine is the candy apple red and finish is perfect, neck finish is perfect-hard to tell from a top end custom line.
Beautiful and authentic look!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Definitely value for your dollar. Stop looking at anything else (seriously!) and pick up one of these CV Squiers. Who knows how long it will last. General Your general opinion of this product. I purchased a CV tele in Austin and was blown away by it. It felt and played as well as any MIA tele I've ever owned. I just figured it was a one-off then, to test my theory, I purchased the candy apple red CV start from AMS. I figured I could send it back if it didn't meet my high expectations. Same build quality as the tele. Amazing. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Stellar. I don't work for Squier. I don't work for any guitar manufacturer. I've just played countless guitars over the years and know when I walk into quality. Thought maybe I could save you some time and effort in your search for quality. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? My Candy Apple red Strat is flawless. It looks amazing. My blonde CV Tele is also stunning aesthetically. But did I mention the playability and tone???? OMG !! Think I'll pick up a Duo Sonic before they're gone...

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I don't know why this websight is doing this 1 star thing. I've given this Strat a five star rating in every catagory for the money paid! You can spend one and a half or two times the price of this guitar and not get as good a sound or feel. General Your general opinion of this product. Completely knocked me out! Move over MiM, You've been outdone in EVERY way! The CV has now taken your place as the American Strat's little brother! I have been playing all types and models of Strats since the 70's. I own them, and now I own this one too! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? All the tones you would expect from a competent Stratocaster! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? PERFECT!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well as far as I can see it should last a long long while. My 1962 is still in great shape so I don't expect this to be any different. General Your general opinion of this product. I own a 1962 Strat and ordered a classic vibe for my son. For all practical purposes this guitar can keep up with the 1962 as far as sound, construction and everything else is concerned. True the tuners are not the same but that is not a big deal because the tuners it comes with work just fine. The guitar holds it's sound and when you play them side by side you really can't tell the difference between the two at all. I was one of those who used to think the squire series was a joke, well the joke is on me because the quality, workmanship and tone are as good as any other in the fender line up and you can't beat the price! So if you are thinking strat, take a close look at this one. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone can go from bright and snappy to smooth and silky. I use it with a super reverb or a vox and both sound equally great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is flawless. I love the tortoise shell pick guard. It looks even better than my '62.
