Fair enough. I will just add that I have two Japanese Fenders - one MIJ from '89 and one more recent CIJ -, as well as a Fender Classic Player Telecaster (MIM), and to me the Squier Classic Vibe is on the same level, not taking into consideration things like modern specs versus vintage specs. In other words the Squier CV is that good. It's hard to beat it. But I understand the desire to have something "more special", which doesn't always translates to exactly better. Maybe "more expensive". I had to buy three Fenders to finally accept that people were right when they said the Squier CV is a perfectly good guitar - even when compared to guitars worth four or five times its value. I would suggest taking a look at some used Classic Series or Classic Player Strats. Those are MIM. The new Player series seems to be very nice and people say good things about them, but in South America they may take a while to get to a reasonable price. Where I live they haven't even arrived yet, and I'm not far from you. I would personally stay away from Mexican Standards (except for the ones made around 2010). I think the American Standards from 2014 look like pretty nice guitars, not vintage-style of course, but also not too modern. Other models like the Jimmie Vaughan (MIM) have a good reputation. For this model I would prefer the ones made after the year 2000 as they have Alder bodies instead of Poplar. I personally like Japanese guitars in general, especially Fenders. The ones made from the mid-80's into the mid-90's are more desirable IMO. But a CIJ (Crafted in Japan - the ones made after 1997) are also excellent instruments and many times on par with the older ones.
