    Tried to search and find out, even Googled it, but couldn't find it!
    So where are they currently made? I know back in the day when they were of excellllllllent quality they were MIJ, are they still MIJ?

    Squires are being manufactured in Singapore, I believe. No longer in Japan
     
  3. They have not been made in Japan in ages. From what I have seen in the past few years, its been Korea, China, and Singapore.
     
  4. My Active Jazz 5 was "Crafted in Indonesia"

    The Affinity series is made in China, the others are made in Indonesia. There are actually a couple of current production Fender models made in Korea believe it or not. I don't know if any of the Squiers are made there still or not though.

    Squier is spelled Squier. The easy way to remember it is it ends in "er", like Fender. :)
