    Ok I was thinking, I see basses that are MIA, MIM, MIC, MIJ, etc, but are there/do you know of any other countries that you don't hear much about making basses.

    For example I use to have a Vigier, they are French made .
    Can you name other countries that you don't hear much about.
    Thanks. :D
