Lately I've been thinking about going after a 1980's/early 1990's MIJ '57 or '62 Strat Reissue. My first ever guitar was a MIJ Squier Strat, which I loved and grew out of, and now I've been thinking of going back. I know the CIJ's quality eventually waned in the mid-to-late 1990's and then the Classic Series evolved out of the Mexican plant. I've been pretty snobby - sorry - about Mexican guitars up until now, because I have always overlooked them, but I have recently read some great reviews about the Classic Series, which have peaked my interest. Thankfully, there is a healthy supply of both MIJs and Classics on the used market. It looks like the Classics can be purchased for $200+ cheaper, so I'd love to hear your opinions. What experiences have you had with either lines? What would you recommend?
