For those who prefer US-made guitars, I would like to understand your reasons. Which of the following statement best applies to you: I have tried non-US-made guitars and US-made guitars just look, sound, and feel better I think that raw materials, manufacturing processes, technology, and labor skills overseas are not at par with US standards I know for a fact that raw materials, manufacturing processes, technology, and labor skills overseas are not at par with US standards I prefer to support US-made guitars for patriotic reasons My motive: I believe that where you manufacture the guitar doesn't really matter for as long as you have the right raw materials, processes (e.g. core manufacturing, quality control, etc.), technology, etc. I have medium-term plans to invest in a small guitar manufacturing operation based overseas and would like to start better understanding the US market. If you choose to respond to this thread, please be as open as you feel necessary. There is no "politically incorrect" answer. From my perspective, a position is a position, and everyone's views will be respected. Thanks for your time.
