How many people can afford 4K Mayones ?
Its not really an issue of affordability, but market share. Americans will buy literally anything and Mayones is not even a thought over here. Schecter sells tons of instruments here whether 1k imports or 4k USA custom shop models. If you enter a market where Americans are buying, it is just good business sense. And a USA Schecter is as good as anything else out there. Full stop.
