  • Squire CV 60's Strat vs. Xaviere XV-870

    Quick question here; in your most astute opinion, does the CV Stratocaster offer significantly more guitar-for-the-buck than the Xaviere XV-870, or is the XV-870 a better deal?

    The thing I'd be most interested in is a stable and usable trem; something I could use
    I thought it was going to be different;It turned out to be(,) just the same.

    without a doubt the Squier. its on par with a Fender, that particular model.

      Kinda figured as much; however, it is nearly double the price....is it worth twice as much?

              Is your playing worth less?
              Get the Squier.

                The Squier CV series is one of those things that is just done right. Even compared to MIM Fender, Squier CV usually comes out on top.

                    I just got the pine bodied CV Tele and it's a great instrument...I bought it to practice on at home so I could leave my nicer instruments at work but the CV is so much fun to play and it's such a solid instrument that I've been taking it to work to teach on....it's not replacing my Suhrs anytime soon but the CV series gives you so much value for the money that I'd recommend it highly.

                    Pretty much anyone who has bought an instrument or parts from GFS over on my forum has gotten hosed the last few months. I don't think I'd take a chance on getting the cheaper instrument knowing that I had a high probability of it needing work or replacement right out of the box.

                      Over at TDPRI, there is a guy who bought a new Xaviere and it had a fly or gnat under the finish and then finished over with amber and clear poly. It was the talk of the forum for a few days.
