So this guy on cl has a guitar posted for - he provides a link to the guitar which comes up as a classic vibe 60's.

Squier Company manufactured strings for violins, banjos, and guitars. It was established in by Victor Carroll Squier in Battle Creek, Michigan. In , the company was acquired by Fender. By , Squier became defunct as a manufacturer and a brand name for strings, as Fender opted to market its strings.

When I asked him for the serial number, his response was that it started with CXS. Too bad - I had originally before researching offered himand he said yes - I was kinda stoked, been wanting a CV - now i'm just disappointed Wow, to have to be so "up" on squire serial numbers. Was the guy trying to pass it off as a classic vibe or were you just hoping it was? I wonder if they actually say classic vibe on them somewhere.

YogiMay 14, Plus he's linking it to a CV60's on the MF site which is deliberately misleading. MalikonMay 14, I'm hard up too. I think I'll pretend my strat is a gibson LP and sell it for a couple grand. So, is it the case that there is no surefire way an external inspection of a guitar can determine whether it is a Classic Vibe series or not?
I am looking at this guitar a see more is selling on Craigslist and it looks like a '60s Classic Vibe: Here is a link to the ad: New Spuire Strat -obo- Can anyone help me?
Eoraptor1May 17, YogiMay 17, Unless they changed it on new models, here are the markings on a CV 60's. HughMay 17, I http://hookuptime.me/vi/what-its-like-dating-an-aries-woman.php had occasion to research this very subject recently pertaining to a Squier that I recently acquired, and while it likely doesn't help a five year old question, hopefully it may help someone in the future.
They are generally thought to be of better quality than other Chinese Squiers, but I'm sure that is open to debate.
Some of the identifying differences are: SE has a black logo on the headstock, CV has gold outlined in black.
SE has two string trees, CV has one. SE has red tortoise shell pickguard, CV has brown tortoise shell. SE has natural, satin neck, CV has tinted, glossy neck.

SE pickups and knobs are white, CV has aged white ones. I'm sure there is more, but these may be sufficient for ID. I since have gotten a CV and definitely can tell the difference now!
Twice in the past month I have seen SEs on ebay listed as a CV, so hopefully this may be of some help to someone in the future. The Classic Vibe page of my web site may help but not with serial numbers plenty of info and pictures.
