Before the sale I thought I had gotten a steal on a $250 used Cabronita Tele in "excellent condition". Unfortunately, opened the box and was far from Excellent; huge chips out of the finish, fretboard was filthy, loose jack and to top it off a dead neck pickup. Discovered this site when I searched if GC would pricematch PAS and came across a new thread for this exact guitar talking about how they did just that. An hour later that mess is returned, and I walk out with this beauty for less than I paid used originally.

Man that cabronita thinline. If I didn’t have an upcoming car repair and dental stuff… a new guitar would be WAAYYYY better.
I actually need 4 tires and have a dentist appointment tomorrow and they still got me. AGAIN! I have been wanting a hardtail strat for awhile so I have the white contemporary model coming at $199.99 how could I pass it up. The pick up selection seems a bit weird but I have enough regular Strats anyway. They already got me during the last blow out sale and I’m sure they’ll get me again. I need to count how many I’ve bought from them in the past few years it’s well past 10. I really have a hard time passing up bargains. The paranormal and contemporary series are really top tier stuff too. I see the cyclones hit $199. I paid $325 last year and thought I stole it. Lol. Guess I should have waited

How long has PAS been selling these Squiers at discounted prices? The rep on the phone told me for the last year now, but I found that hard to believe because no one seemed to be talking about them on the forums. Perhaps I just didn't notice?

I caved as well, and ordered one of the Squier CV60's Thinline Teles from PAS. It came in today, and I love everything about it - other than it has one very wobbly machine head (on the G tuner)...

I'm a little disappointed in the wobbly tuner - as I don't see any way to fix this. Any ideas on a possible fix?.. Or just return it for another one?..

I'm still debating on sending it back, but I haven't decided yet.. Deal killer or not? Any thoughts?...

If I keep it, I'll need to lower the action a tad, but otherwise it sounds and plays great.

edit: This one weighs in at 6 lbs 5 oz - apparently a little heavier than most of these models - but not a bad weight at all.
