GO FOR IT, i really mean it, tried one of these some time ago, was on a luthier store and the logo on the headstock was erased but with the serial the guy tracked it.

Plays like an american standard, a vintage one wink.gif

First of all, congrats on the purchase! biggrin.gif
Those are great quality instruments!!!

Here's a little bit more info about them:-

Squier from 1983-85: "There’s Magic in the Breed"

In late 1983, as it had in Europe and Japan, Fender decided to import Squier instruments into the United States in order to compete with the many copies flooding the domestic market. To make them stand out without competing directly with Fender’s existing domestic models, these U.S.-bound Squier models were given ’70s features and touted as the first instruments ever “officially authorized” to borrow from Fender’s classic designs.

The series included Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision bass models, and three Bullet® models—affordable entry-level instruments combining Stratocaster-style body shapes with Telecaster necks in triple-single-coil or dual-humbucking pickup versions, plus a split-pickup bass with a Telecaster-style headstock.

Using the slogan “There’s Magic in the Breed,” Fender re-launched the Squier name in the U.S. market with these instruments.

From 1985-1995: Setting the Standard

The Squier Standard Series, introduced in the mid-1980s, was based on the original vintage models, but with more up-to-date features (likely mirroring design evolution and standardization at big brother Fender). By 1989, the series had evolved to include the Squier II Stratocaster (which had a more modern-looking tremolo) several non-pickguard contemporary designs, and even the heavy metal HM Series, which featured pointed headstocks and flashy finishes. These contemporary and HM series instruments soon disappeared quietly, but the Standard Series itself continued throughout the early 1990s and evolved into a new generation of Squier models.

I believe those Squiers were made very seriously compared to todays guitars. I advise you check it out and see how it sounds. It may be a very good piece.
