: The Squier line of basses is basically Fender's "Economy Line", if you will. They do some stuff to the Fender models, I'm not sure what (I don't mean bad things; most likely "stripping down" the bass, if you will, to cut down on cost) to bring the prices down further.
Squier guitars and basses are made in Korea, where the labor, etc., is *much* cheaper.
For what they are, they're not all that bad, either; I used to have one of the early Squier Stratocasters that came off the Korean production line in 1987, and I thought it was a really decent guitar.
Damn thing got ripped off, though...
