Do most people think that Korean basses are still "cheap". I now notice that a lot of the entry level (100$-350$) basses are now made in places like China, Vietnam, Indonesia etc. While basses from Korea are now costing in the (400$-900$) range. Japanese basses which used to be considered as the cheap entry level ones now cost over 700$, while a American and European basses now cost prices upwards of 1000$. Korea has been building them since the 80's and now have a lot of experience but do people still recognize them as inferior instruments considering build quality compared to the American and Japanese basses, or have they now earned the quality reputation that Japan did years ago?
