    It's been done, there have already been MIA Squiers. They spent a lot of time in therapy, trying to sort out their identity crises.... o_O

    Exactly. Tariffs have all kinds of weird knock-on effects, they are nowhere near as simple as some folk would have us believe. Government intervention in international trade like this tends to be a bad idea - nearly always.

    There's a reason that the world moved away from tariffs & embraced the concept of free trade.

    You seem to have misunderstood ST & assumed that "everyone trashes them" (Squiers). But you're wrong, ST isn't like that.

    Now watch for a glut of slightly used Squiers on the market. It's now January 5th and 98% of the kids who received one for Christmas have given up on ever playing the guitar by now.

    No anti-Squier snobs on ST. If any pop up they don't last long, heh heh...

    You'll find a lot of Squier-love on here. It's all good.

    Back to the topic, my guess is that it's all the parents buying "value" guitars for Christmas, too. Little do some of them know just what a great instrument they're getting for the money.

    I watched Doctor Who on New Years Day & they didn't mention that. I think they probably would have done if you had been right.
