    It's 1/3rd the price of an MII Strandberg and probably a better guitar overall. :shrug:

    So long as the quality is solid, I don't think it really matters.

    Remember, nerds like us are the only ones who even care to look where it's made.

    They have for years.

    Ever since pulling most of production out of South Korea they moved operations to Indonesia and a year or two later, China.

    Money is worth less these days and China is, at least in the legitimate market, stepping their game up.

    You want chinese quality of yesteryear, go to aliexpress and spend 200-400.

    I mean Ibsnez has been selling $1800 MiI guitars for years, and ESP just recently started doing so. It was bound to happen eventually.

    The current PRS SE Acoustics have been made in China through Cort since 2018. The new SE Hollowbodies are also made at the acoustic factory in China with great results.

    is that the MSRP though? no one really ever pays that do they?

    so they will be about $500 or less used which seems pretty reasonable to me considering i bet they are great guitars.

    I'd love to try one before any judgement. If the quality is there, I could care less where it's made.

    Didn’t you get a $2500 custom from a Chinese shop OP

    And as I understand it semi hollow and acoustic production in China isn’t that bad

    My use hb ii has warpigs in it. I just read an interview where they made some changes to these se's to make the tops vibrate a bit less. Should be more stable for high gain.
    Naw these are like 1000,1200 available now.

    There's an epiphone that's made using the same technique. I want to say it's the wildkat but I could be wrong.
