Here's a demo video from a shop in the UK (the CV 70s strat is on at 10:28 ) :
Just got one and love it, (after a few modification)
I will start dreaming with that guitar, @TEXINGA lol
LOL Thanks, I had it customize so what you do not see is this...
You had installed an Oak Grigsby 5-Way Switch,
Volume pot is a CTS 500K DPDT push/pull potentiometer.
Treble bleed is a Orange Drop .001uf Cap w/150kohm resister.
Middle Pot is a CTS 250K Potentiometer with a Orange Drop .47uf cap.
Bottom Pot is a CTS 500K DPDT push/pull potentiometer with a Orange Drop .22uf Cap.
It has 7-Way Switching (Gilmour Mod) activated by the Volume pot.
Neck and Middle share a tone pot while the Bridge has a tone pot of its own.
Treble Bleed and the Coil Tap is the activated by the bottom pot.
Pickguard and cavity was copper shielded.
Gavitt Cloth Wire was used.
It is wired to bring out the best out of each pickup. With split tone when the switch is in the middle/bridge position, both tone pots are active allowing you to blend the tone of the two pickups. With the addition on the Gilmour mod you can blend the tone of the neck and bridge in the 1st position and all the pickups in the 2nd position. (Bridge and Bridge/Middle position)
Here comes the GAS.
I like Dagan's videos. He's always very entertaining and informative, and a great player, who does awesome product demos. And I love his enthusiasm. I also like his "Hippie Rock Star" style.
The neck pickup on the Strat with the TS got that classic overdriven neck pickup Strat tone, and the neck and middle together had plenty of SRV vibe. The Epi LP was the other standout of the bunch, but I knew that it would be, having worked for many years at a Gibson/Epi dealer.
That Walnut color is my favorite of the bunch.
Hands down, The natural is nice and if I was to purchase another one that would be it, but I fell in love with the walnut.
CVs are great guitars!
Have a new "CV70" on the way. It's really a renamed Vintage Modified. There was a $50 price difference between the renamed models and the "true" CVs.
What CV70s did you order?
It's a black HSS Strat with a maple neck. I guess I'm not entirely right, the old VM version was an SSS setup. Otherwise, it seems the same to me.
Great color choice...
I purchase a new one from fender last year a black VM70s
That's a VM? I thought the VMs only came with an SSS setup. My new CV is identical to yours
Yes it was a SSS, but all my keepers have major upgrades like this one has SD PUPS and puch/pull POTS and under the hood...
1 oak Grigsby 5-way switch
2 500K CTS Push/Pull pots
1 250K CTS Push/Pull Pot
1 Orange Drop .47 Capacitor
1 Orange Drop .22uf Capacitor
1 Orange Drop Treble Bleed
3 Black Strat Knobs
1 Black Switch Tip Knob
This unit would be wired for Split Tone,
Coil Taps on the Neck and Bridge Pickups and wired for you kill switch as well.
There have been HSS VMs in the past. Eddie actually just recently sold one off to MrYeats, and I think he has some of the parts from it listed for sale here.
