The JV Squiers of the early 80´s were impressively great guitars , compared to what else was offered at the time. Ive had quite a few , mostly back in the day. Lots were sold here , we couldnt believe how cheap they were compared to Fenders. The Chinese CV Squiers today are just as good , IMO. Change the switch and maybe the jack , and you are done....even the pu´s are great. I wouldnt have bought four of them , if they werent great guitars ! Remember I said CV models , not all Squiers !
