    Belonging to this forum has it's dangers. @blueruins showed his Fender Squiers here and I decided I needed some too.
    Pictures are terrible but the best I have been able to due so far. Notice the hard shell cases @thunder58

    Both are 2019 made in China models. Excellent guitars for the price. The Tele is heavy but lighter than my Les Paul. Have enjoyed playing them since they arrived.
    Thanks for looking.

    Are they still in China? I thought they moved production over to Indonesia on those.....?

    @TSims1 these definitely came from China. I was surprised also.

    Great guitars, those Classic Vibes. I got really into them when they first came out......owned probably 6 or 7 of them.......I loved how lightweight and toneful they were, brand named be danged. I've noticed the weights are much higher now than they were back then......looks like the average weight is around 8 lbs now.

    Anyways, great guitars! Enjoy them!

    All the new Fender Squire guitars are now being made in Indonesia and might I add that they are made better. My new Squire Jazzmaster is built well - plays great and the wood on the neck is beautiful. I think it looks better than my $1200 Strat.
    Every guitar that I've played lately that was made in Indonesia has played well. No shabby fret work or crappy paint. The only thing that my Jazzmaster needs is a better set of tuners.
