    Sweetwater has an S-load of CV's in stock. They also have some VM's.

    The only Deluxe Strat currently on the Squier website is the Deluxe Hot Rails and those appear to be out of stock at the big US vendors.

    I'm going to change the decal on my MIM Fender Strat to Squier so it will sell faster.

    It's not the government shutdown, customs and ports are still funded (for now). It's possible it has something to do with new tariffs, since they're made in China. For instance, Fender may have decided to sell those guitars in other parts of the world where they don't have to worry about a 25% import tax. If the Squier costs more than the MIM standard because of taxes, that disrupts their whole price scheme.

    It might be production backlogs .
    I believe the Squier VM’s are manufactured in Indonesia.
    I’m not sure about the CV’s .

    Squier CV (both Tele and Strat Chinese made) are available at GC and Sweetwater with no price increase as of Jan 4, 2019.

    As far as I can tell by digging through the morass of net misinformation, electric guitars are not included in the Jan 1, 2019 tariff list.

    Squier, not as difficult as you think. However, Squire guitars are quite elusive.
