    It’s raining Squiers around here. Picked this up on my way home from work. Plastic still on the guard. Also came with a little boss katana mini amplifier. I’ve gone from 0 to 4 really nice Squiers in a matter of two weeks.

    Guitar is nice.

    mini Katana is better. Unless I’m dialing in tone or volume for jam or gig it gets all my home play time. Volume low gain 3/4 on brown sound = glorious. The delay is fantastic replaces any need for reverb. It’s also great clean with my acoustic with pickup in sound hole, very accurate amplification of guitar’s tone.

    I was stunned at how awesome it is for home play. I’m gonna try my SM57 in front of it at a jam soon!

    Geez yeah you’re right, it’s a CV 50s. Can’t seem to get my terminology right these days. I think the mint Squier 51 I picked up yesterday will be sacrificed along with the katana mini to keep this one.

    So you're the one who's been buying up all the great Squier deals in Indiana. I've been kicking myself for letting that CV 50s/Katana Mini deal slip away. Thanks, pal!

    The 2 color sunburst is the best sunburst. I'd like to pair one with a 60s neck.
