    I think I just used 800? Something like a new green Scotchbrite should work fairly good as well.

    Rob Thorn, one of Fender's Custom Shop master builders, proffered up this non-permanent solution for a sticky, glossy neck at 11:17…

    Where is the cool looking mirror pickguard?

    I recall the CI Sig p has pretty punchy bite P vibe than any china CV and Sig P. I been try load the pickup direct to jack on my CV60 p, yes, she punch, but not close to CI P. Duncan P is the magic, unique and unsell separately.

    Put side by side, this CI P just look like pricy Fender Marcus Miller J while hang on the wall at Guitar Store.
    Meanwhile, put along with surf green Mark Hoppus J , the J look like cost less bass guitar to me.

    Bought it used and the OG pick-guard was already gone. Pick-guard and electronics where very damage. Had to change everything. I ordered a tortoise PG which i think will look even better then the mint green.
    I'm honestly surprised at how good the stock pickup is. You can found them for sale on Reverb from time to time.

    I also love the look on my previous CV60P with mint pickguard too. She has Avri 63 look but poor man version. Just like first batch sonic blue P after chrome cover install.

    I believe install a larger CV chrome bridge(for for CV Himass bridge ) then your CI P just look like Fender Custom Shop.

    If Old Gregg is fine with doing something more permanent, then Old Gregg can do what he pleases with his own instruments while enjoying a soft, creamy Bailey's. :roflmao: ;)

    I would think it is similar with the Tim Armstrong signature in that it is considered to be a classic vibe. They are both based off of 70s Precisions and the the quality is the same as the 50s and 60s CVs.

    Perhaps, if they were made nowadays, but @lowdownthump is correct that the Aiken-sigs were made at the Indonesia factory at the same time the CV's were manufactured in China. Though to be fair, I had to do some digging to confirm it. That hi-mass, brass-saddled bridge one normally finds on the first-gen CV's got me thinking it was from the Chinese factory, too. (I'm primarily a Jazz-guy, so Precisions aren't my forte. :whistle:) Still, a good bass is a good bass, no matter where it was made.

    Not familiar with this model, will have to look it up.
    CV and VM are fine instruments that for sure

    I'd say real. From what I've seen and read over the past ten years of researching bass-stuff, Chicago Music Exchange has frequently worked with Fender/Squier to create several Factory Special Run (FSR) instruments. They also seem to be very "bassist friendly" with their choices, so that's pretty cool of them.

    But.... The problem is not as described as image shown.
    Let's check the truss rod placement.....

    Yeah, I saw that and was a little intrigued. I'm no expert, but I can't think of a single Squier that has truss rod access at the heel. I guess we'll just have to wait and see when they're finally released.

    Sadly, their Squier FSR's seem to only consist of P-basses, Mustangs and a couple of Broncos. <sniffle> No Jazz basses… :crying:
