If it has the 6 saddle bridge with the L shape saddles, keep an eye on the two saddle screws-they can vibrate out of adjustment so the saddles isn't sitting properly on both screws. No big deal but something to be aware of. Some light loctite or similar can be handy.
I have an "sq" serial number Japanese Squier from the 80's. It is a great sounding Tele. I would bring it to lessons with Ted Greene and he really liked the way it sounded, especially after it was set up Ted style with .13 to .58 strings.
I have a '85 Squier Strat that sounds and feels great. Also have a '89 Fender MIJ Tele that is fantastic, too. I've upgraded all the electronics on both, and that does help considerably. The only thing that I don't love about them is that they seem to have a heavier finish that you might typically see. They are both keepers, though.
