Yeah I had to replace the bridge with a TOM in order to stop the strings constantly getting knocked out of place. And that in turn made the action EVEN HIGHER, so even after shimming the neck and setting the action as low as possible it was still a nightmare to play ("great for slide!" etc lol).

It’d probably look a bit like a PRS Mira which isn’t a terrible thing.

Love love love the CV series. My 50s Tele and 60s strat can take the Pepsi challenge with fenders. My friend has a CV 60s p bass that plays and feels as good as fenders. They out did themselves with that line. Perfection.

I have a VM Jazzmaster, Jaguar, and my same friend has the bass VI. All lovely guitars as well, I play the squiers as much as the fenders, one day I’ll bless all my squiers with new pickups to cure my fender madness.

I can't get on the VM Jazzmaster my gf's got; it's got really big and tall frets (for me, at least), and even with a mad low action and straight neck, it still feels off. Really needs a shim to even get the action low enough without having the strings fall out of the saddles constantly.

I think I shimmed the neck on every Fender I owned, especially the offsets, it seemed the only way to get nice low action and the saddles to behave.
Not tried any Squire offsets (other than a Vista, so that doesn’t count) so cant can’t comment on them.

Yup, you need to make those hardtail guitars play out of tune, Buzztop is a good idea.

I think the classic players got it right with the tailpiece position and resulting break angle, and TOM, but the neck angle (shimming) is then baked into the design by virtue of having a TOM. I know some people like the vintage bridge but it ain’t for me.

And buzz stops are ugly. So ugly that I’m surprised a more elegant solution doesn’t exist. I’m yet to spend time with a buzz stop but learning first hand how bad tension bars are for bigsbys I’m quite sceptical

I'm pretty sure it'll fit between the pickups.

Buzz stops are shit. The stock bridge is shit unless its a vintage or AVRI one. Do an Staytrem.

What's shit about something that solves an inherent problem with a crappy old design? It's not the prettiest thing ever, but I'd rather have a guitar that works properly over a vintage-correct rattle-and-buzz machine.

"Hey audience, sorry the second half of that song sounded so crap, my low E popped out of the saddle and went out of tune. Again".

A Staytrem still won't solve the inherent problem of a lack of angle. As soon as you have to shim a neck so much that it's sitting SO high above the body, something has gone deeply wrong.
