    Yea,swapping pickups with metal cover would solve the problem, but the stock nazgul set are innocent. :(

    No, I don't think so. It's just big enough so that you can fit covers if you so desire. My horizon custom has the same style and it's not wobbly at all. If fact they don't move at all. The sugizo custom does too.

    Several lines have been moving there over time. I wouldn’t be surprised to see mostly $1k+ come out of WMI in the near future. Looks like the Indonesian plants have gotten their QC up enough that a lot of brands are shifting there as WMI’s capacity is reached.

    The LTD Deluxe line (1000 series) has been shifting to Indonesia for nearly the last 6 to 8 months.

    Any MIK is likely new old stock.

    It has nothing to do with quality, it's about WMI shifting thier business model to meet the South Korean economy.

    They have to pay better wages and provide better benefits to retain staff now, which means that they need to make more per unit, which means that they're focusing on products with higher margins, such as OEM direct (no retailers) for smaller brands and boutique builders' import lines.
