    There are a lot of Squier players, here. You might be surprised by the quality of current Squier models.

    I agree.

    If every "Fender" was made in North America and in FMIC plants only, then the Squier vs. Fender dichotomy would be real vivid. But FMIC puts the "Fender" decal on contractor guitars from Indonesia, Japan, even China. But I would say that since all Squier guitars are made by various contractors and FMIC really has little control over the process until final inspection, that you have to pay attention to which Squier from which source you're buying - even more than with the various Fenders (most of which are made in house).

    No worries. In your original post you said you were checking out the Squier Classic Vibe 70s model, so it seemed like you were considering Squiers.

    Good examples of that here and gone are Hot Rod Red and Chrome Red.

    Fender also likes to take popular colors and only use them on CS guitars. Taos Turquoise and Candy Tangerine come to mind.

    Fender seems to reserve Dakota red for high end stuff. I would love to see a Dakota red MIM or Squier tele. I like fiesta, and sonic, but Dakota is by far my favorite Fender color.

    Fender also seems to reserve Mystic Red and Jade Pearl for higher end models. We may never see those colors offered on MIM Teles or Strats.

    I'd love to see them bring out an MIM Tele in Shoreline Gold!

    Yes, CAR is ubiquitous. And not a bad color. But not even close to Mystic Red.

    LPB is very nice. And I’m really enjoying Tidepool!

    I like how Tidepool looks with rosewood, too. It's really an awesome color.

    "They change Player Series Telecaster again?"

    That's a good thing about used gear, it never changes.
