    Anyone know anything about these? They were supposedly "student instruments" but the quality seems pretty good to me.

    The headstock has "Fender" in big bold lettering and "Squier Series" in small lettering.

    Actually, the one I have is 1994-95.

    I had one I bought new in late '95. Nice Bass for the $200 I paid for it.

    I played alot of gigs with it for three years before I bought my 98 MIA P.

    I played a few way back and from what I remember about them is they played and felt just like the Made In Mexico Standard Series. Somebody, I think it was on this forum said the M.I.M. Squire Series were made with bodys and necks cut in Mexico and the M.I.M. Standard Series necks and bodys were cut at the Corona plant. I would believe it because I do know they were cutting at least the necks in Corona back in the mid. 90's

    That's funny, I paid $200 for mine a couple of months ago (with a hard case)! The bridge was upgraded and the original pups were replaced with active EMGs.

    I bought it for my 11 yr old son and I know next to nothing about basses, but it seems solid and well built with a very good finish.
