I have bought and sold many many Squiers over the last 28 years, and I have to say that in my experience the Cort-made Squiers were, and are, the WORST.
You only have to compare a Korean Squier from the 90's with a Samick-made Squier from the 90's to see a massive difference.
The Cort ones had crappy tuners (with no securing nut) and plywood bodies.
The Samick ones were actually superb guitars and had fast smooth necks with skunk stripe, good tuners with securing nuts, and solid bodies.
Up to date the best Squiers have been made by (in order of excellence)...

This does not of course include Mexican or U.S made Squiers.
