    Due to the shutdown, Fender (well, everybody really) is running behind, so I may not get it before September. But when it does, hopefully it will look like this:

    I chose the walnut because how often do I get to buy a new guitar that at least looks like it's made from walnut? (I know it's poplar underneath, but sometimes it's all about the illusion, haha.) And sure, I could buy one on Reverb and it would be here by the end of the week, but I want to support my neighborhood mom & pops store. Besides, I have six other Strats to play while I wait. Okay, three to play and three to finish building. Anyway, looking forward to this addition.

    Congrats, I hate waiting for a guitar to arrive after ordering. Good looking CV you chose, I'm sure you'll like it.

    I agree, supporting local music stores is very important to the industry.

    Did you get it? If so how does she play? What’s the quality like?

    Great looking guitar. Hopefully it gets here sooner than September. I'm so impatient and hate waiting when I order things.

    I have the CV 70s SSS. I was ready to sell it on CL, but I tweaked the action a bit more, and now it's playing and sounding as good as my Oscar Schmidt, so I guess I'll keep it. And, since I can't get the SX Tele I wanted, maybe I'll begin gassing again for the LPB CV 60s Strat. I just don't think it's that wise of an investment, since it's really the same guitar as my 70s one, except with different cosmetics.

    Great looking guitar .. the best of the current models no doubt.

    I'm loving my VM70 again after recent tweaks and small improvements (larger spacer on the D/G string tree to reduce the break angles a bit has made a world of difference) and it's back in rotation.

    Just 'cos I like to tinker I wonder what that would look like with a subtle (Fender) mint guard on it ....

    Photoshop opportunity for anyone with time on their hands.

    That's the body I'm using (with an AllParts baritone conversion neck) for my Sub-Sonic baritone partscaster, You're gonna like how she looks, a real stunner. Very classy.

    Every color looks better with mint, especially with white or cream covers and knobs. I only like a black guard with black knobs and covers.
