20 odd years ago when I started playing bass I remember Squier being a bit of a laughing stock, they were terrible and I never played a good one. In the last couple of years I've had VM and CV's, both models are excellent and it got me interested in Squier again. I know the early Japanese JV's are sought after, as are some of the Korean pro tones but what other discontinued Squier's are worth having? Are the later Japanese ones from the early to mid 90's any good? Where and when we're the generally crappy ones made? Basically which old Squier's are gems and which ones wouldn't you touch with a barge pole?
