not a question, just a thought I have bought a Chinese CV50 a few months ago. That guitar is just flawless. So I thought, maybe get another Squier Stratocaster. But in the current line of models every model has some flaws for me: Bullet: basswood, cheap tuners, body size Affinity: small nut & string spacing Standard: agathis body Contemporary: 12 inch radius, colored headstock Indonesian CV's: weird body wood (nato, pine, poplar?) I don't like IL or PF for the fretboard but that has to be accepted. Best Stratocaster for me would be a second hand Chinese CV60 with rosewood fretboard, or a Bullet that I can modify later. My son has a Bullet Mustang, and it's a nice guitar, but has a stiff feeling in the neck. The new CV50 with the pine body could be something, if I can try it first.
