    Squier CV ‘50s P has arrived... pretty nice looking piece-o-lumber... annnnd only 8.15lbs! I was concerned it might be heavy- as many of these are. Has a ‘threaded-barrel’ bridge as well! Have a set of Labella low-tension flats due to arrive- later today and have a ‘51 bridge cover to install. Pu sounds decent- but may install a Duncan or Fralin split-coil in the days to come... and, maybe, some Hipshot tuners (will see how well she stays in tune). :thumbsup:

    Happy to be joining the crew!!

    That's rockin'! Plug it in and GO!
    That's a lot lighter than my Ps so good for you, nice score.

    p.s. Jason Lollar makes a really amazing and authentic sounding pickup for that. Can't go wrong with the Fralin either.

    Nice, looks rockin'. That Lindy split J will make your teeth buzz. That's going to be an awesome bass.

    That’s awesome that the bridge dropped right in. I know that was an issue with the earlier CV’s. That thing looks damn proper and probably sounds it too.

    Yup- I had a Butterscotch Blond CV ‘51- some years ago and had to do some, very minimal, filing of the Fralin pu to get it to fit... this one was snug- but no filing needed! :thumbsup: (I’m assuming you were referring to the pu)

    Thx! Yup- sounding pretty good... haven’t had ‘er in a band mix- just yet- but I’m sure it will be good !!

    Here’s a pic of my last Tele-P ‘project’- sold, about 6mos. ago to another TB member. (refinned, etc. a Mike Dirnt P)

    I love mine. I actually like the pickup as well, it has good thump. but it also has a gnarly overdriven sound if you bear down.
    The stock pickguard is horrid, so thick and cheap feeling. I tried 2 different replacements, but decided I like mine better naked, screw holes and all.
    Nice job on yours!
