Are we, the people of the United States, the only nation of people that have so much pride for US made basses along with other products (this is a basses forum, lets stick to that) made in the US? What I mean is, When you first think about getting the nicest bass from, lets say Fender. You think, OK, American made. You put them in a higher category in terms of construction and quality than MIM and MIJ basses. I know that this is obviously not true in all cases but do you see what Im trying to get at? We tend to look down on foreign made basses. It seems that US made basses have a bit of snob appeal to them. Tons of basses are made in Korean factories. Do the Korean people feel that these models produced in their country are nicer than the US made models or do they too feel that the models produce here in the states are better for whatever reason? Do other countries have this kind of pride for the basses that are produced in their country?
