    I've always wanted a guitar in Natural and was excited to see that new CV70's with that finish. I would put a white guard in it probably.

    I think the mark of obsession is imagining mods to guitars you don't own yet.

    I love Strats, I love Squiers, I love Classic Vibes and I love white Strats….so you know I love that guitar! One thing I'd do though is put a mint green pickguard on it.

    It never fails to amaze me that the guy who owns what is arguably the #1 Fender dealer in the UK, and probably sells hundreds of Strats every year, can be SO ignorant about Fender products. He doesn't know how to float a Strat bridge! I've known it since I bought my first Strat in the '70s. And, in videos introducing new models, he doesn't even know the specs, and has to look at the press release when Rob asks him something like "Is this an alder body?" or "Is this a rosewood fretboard?". It takes me literally ten seconds to memorize the specs of any given Fender/Squier model. It would take him the same amount of time to study the specs BEFORE the camera starts rolling. How can someone so clueless be so successful, and such a good player? Is he so spoiled that he doesn't even know how to change the strings on a Strat, and has some flunky do it for him, so he doesn't even know about the claw? I'm speechless.

    Hmmmm...this is the exact one color and all i have been thinking about getting. But the quote "I was neither impressed or let down by the sound" has me a bit worried. The chinese CV line was always getting great reviews from most everyone saying they can't believe how good they are. I have a couple and concur. So when i hear this it worries me. But if i do get one it'll be at GC with the 45 day return, so no loss, just a bit of a PITA if i have to return it i spose.

    But i have questions.....Have you owned the chinese CV 50s or 60s and if so how is the neck on this new CV indo 70s model compared to those as thickness goes? And that white looks like pure white, arctic or whatever they usually call it. It's supposed to be olympic white which is one of fender's slightly off whites. Is that the fault of the lighting or camera or is it really that white?
