    No way. As much as they can move to other countries and save money, they would turn away too many customers by doing so. Likewise, their new factory is state of the art and only about five years old. That'd be a bit of a waste too.

    Maybe the statement is accurate - Sam Ash may be discontinuing MIA, although I find that hard to swallow, too.

    The onte time I went to Sam Ash (and last time) they only had a lot of lower line models. No MIA or anything.. but they did have a stingray or three...
