    Dang... on impulse, I was going to pick it up as the platform for a tele project I had in mind, but it's already gone. Maybe later...

    That was fast, it couldn't have been up for more than an hour or so. The only project I'd use that for would be an Esquire and I'd leave the stock bridge pickup in there...

    Yeah, it was fast! I have this crazy idea of giving one an arm contour, neck humbucker, and lightly burnt finish. I already have 2 CV 50s teles I've vowed to keep original, so I just like this model too much.

    Always ask the weight if that's important to you. Some of those bodies are heavy. One bare CV body for sale on Ebay weighed 7 lbs, 1 oz.

    I just weighed mine and it comes in a bit over 8 lbs. It feels heavier...

    Not bad for a whole guitar. 7lbs for a body is insane. Plenty of light ones out there, I hear.
