Fritz Kronenberg? And a bass called Munich? Jeez, how much further could they go to imply (falsely) that it's a German instrument?
I mean, a little European flavoring is one thing, but that's a bit much. I've always respected Shen for going by the name of Shen. Even Eastman is a sort of cool name, because it's both a Western name and an indication of origin (East-man). But Adolph Schnickelwurst and the Dusseldorf...sheesh.
