Well I picked up my CV Custom yesterday, so far I love it. Thought I might have some issues with the neck, but thus far I really like it. I haven't even put on the set of 10's that I picked up with it. Starting off I have to say this guitar is gorgeous, and well built. Plays really nice and I love the tone. The neck pickup is amazing makes me feel like my others should be converted to esquires. I have the CV '50s so I felt this one had a lot to live up to, I'll tell ya I have no disappointment what-so-ever thus far. If you are on the fence on getting one of these, do it. If you get a bad one most places have good return policies, or if you don't like the neck then replace it and I think you would still have more guitar than you have money into it.
