    From what I can see it looks legit. They were made in Mexico for a short while but I'm not the expert on them. That guy will be along soon hopefully, thats why I tagged him for you.

    I'd say the neck will be almost as good as Classic Vibe except for the tuners.....I would pay about $250-300 Canadian...try to talk him down....look nice!

    the pickups will be ceramic magnet....

    this was a low end guitar when it was sold....Squier did not have alnico pickups in the 1990s on any guitar except the Korean 1997-era Pro Tone series......pickups are similar to 1990s Mexico Standard Strats....

    You can't expect alnico in this guitar.....

    If you want alnico, buy a used Classic Vibe

    I would say these are in par with the older Squier standards, decent bones for modding, but I would not pay more than $200 US for one, and even then it would need to be in very good condition.

    This is a misconception.....

    Alnico is not always better than ceramic....what style of music do you play? The Squier Standard alnico pickups are VERY low output like 4.5k wind....you would need a boost pedal to sound like a Classic Vibe alnico wound to around 6k.....

    These ceramic pickups will be higher output around 6.5-7k wind, so nice for hard rock etc.....

    Can’t you pickup a used mim fender or classic vibe squier for that price? I would try to get a better price as others have suggested

    I would say if you can find a used Squier Classic Vibe for 300-350 Canadian it would be a better investment in the long run, and better choice for you.....

    This Mexico Squier I would rather pay 250 for because I would want to change pickups etc and tuners are terrible and need upgrading....

    The neck on the Mexico Squier is very nice but that is about it .....

    Are there any Squier Classic Vibes available locally?

    No they are not - those are ridiculous asking prices, some sellers will never ask the right price. Toronto kijiji I see all the time MIMs for about $400 and Classic Vibes for about $300-350....I watch it all the time, every single day.....

    You just have to be patient and wait for the good deals....there's nothing now but that will change....I saw some Vintage Modified Strats in Toronto like 1-2 weeks ago for $250....

    I see the seller is asking $390 on this Squier Mexico 1996 guitar.....I think he is insane....
