Hey Man, Chill out. We're all contributing to the greater good here. Thanks for the background on Squier but keep in mind that 90% volume of their US sales (largest market for them) in the last two decades is the 150-250 range which has changed recently thanks to Covid but in general the Squier, Epiphone, LTD brands are used to pump out the volume with low per piece margin hence lower quality builds.
If you dont like what i like, you're wrong.
The title for this deal is really unhelpful.

These definitely get high marks and are close to the classic vibe models which are also well reviewed. There are many different models and colors on the pro audio site. Both brand new and then open box models for about $20 less. Jazzmasters, telecasters, strats, just pick your poison.

Quote from Slickweasels :
"Usually not a recommender of Squier but this is very different. This is built in Indonesia in the same factory as Fender Indonesian Guitars. If you can overlook the Squier name this is a very good deal. "

You don't know Squier guitars, obviously. First off, the Gold Edition 40th Anniversary are better guitars with better features (gold hardware, neck binding, block inlays). Second, there are a lot of Squier guitars, including the Contemporary line and the old Deluxes, which are superior to these because they, for example, don't have the inferior 6 point trem like a 50s Strat and instead have the superior 2 point trem like the American Ultras. Lastly, if you can't get past the "Squier name" there's really something fundamentally wrong with you. They have made great guitars for decades now starting with JVs 40 years ago, including the Vistas and Korean Pro Tones in the 90s, the masterbuilts in the early 2000s, and the Classic Vibes, Standards and Deluxes, and certain artist models like the J Mascis, and most recently, the Paranormal series. Only someone who doesn't pay attention and shouldn't be making recommendations says what you said.
