    had a chance to drop in on Cream City Music and see what they got on display - and was very please to see:

    Yep!! they had a TON of the new Indo CVs - and none of the old MIC CVs. They also had some Contemporary series guitars. They probably had more than 20 of the newest Squier offerings out for me to mess around with!

    I played a bunch of them unplugged they all feel excellent. They are certainly on a par build-wise with the older CVs and VMs. Every one of them felt alive unplugged, and all the necks felt really nice. Perhaps a touch more meaty feeling than the older CV necks.

    I particularly liked the CV70s HSS Strat shown above. It was all I could do to NOT go home w/ that beauty!

    They also had a bunch of the new "Vintera" series guitars:

    I didn't want to like these, lol, because they replace the Road Worn and classic Series lines -- but WOW, these are super-sweet guitars!! I even found one w a 7.25" radius neck, the 60s model (why NOT on the 50s model, no clue)

    and NO trip to Creme City would be complete w/o checking out some of the vintage stuff!!

    This old lady was really tempting - if she had been a '62 instead of a '65 ...

    And I got to play this 1975 Tele - beautiful Ash body, real-world aging, SUPER-heavy (It had to be at least 11 lbs!!)

    I really wanted to try this 1971 one -- but I was to scared to ask them to get it down for me, lmao :eek:

    Cream City is the best guitar store in the area. I'm in there quite often myself. Very regularly they have 15% off and sometimes up to 30%.

    totally forgot about this one -- always wanted to try one of these $2K acoustasonics, had a chance today:

    IMG_2508.jpeg

    It was actually really cool. The mix of natural/painted wood, and the grain showing through the color, make this one REALLY stunning. It is really nice sounding acoustically, too, but pretty quiet (would NOT be a good campfire guitar). I expect it would sound great plugged in :D

    and --- REALLY had to pry myself away from this blue whale (I told myself it was because she didn't have a coil tap)

    There's no such thing as a '62 Mustang, it wasn't introduced until '64!
    As far as the Vintera series, the standard Vintera 50's and 60's Strats and Teles all have a 7.25" radius, while the Modified versions have a 9.5" radius.

    Yup
    I think a Musicmaster would have been available then though.

    What a cool store! Nothing like that in the area near me, GC’s the best we’ve got. Maybe they’ll have the new CV’s when I pop in there Friday. Don’t care to even try the acoustasonics, I think they’re just so ugly. A big turn off for me is an acoustic bridge on an electric. Also, if it’s too quiet to use acoustically, why put a big ugly sound hole in the middle?! Fender is really hit and miss these days.

    Yeah, Musicmasters and Duo Sonics were first produced in 1956, but he showed a Mustang in his pic.
