Most of what I've read on this forum suggests that while there are definitely more options for the American Sadwoskys and Laklands, the quality of the Asian versions is REALLY close. So all other things being equal, would you rather get a used Sadowsky NYC/Lakland USA, or a brand new Sadowsky Metro/Lakland Skyline? Hmmm . . . The sweet agony of decisions, decisions . . .
