I'll be the first to say that the stuff coming out of China seems to be top quality anymore. I have a Boss digital recorder, Boss drum machine, Peterson StroboStomp2 and Crate BT15 all made in China. All appear to be every bit as well made as USA made stuff. The prices have also fallen as to make equipment much more affordable. It's a global economy, etc. But........... Putting aside politics, etc., does it bother you that much of the stuff in not made in the USA or England anymore? Somehow an Indonesian, Chinese, etc. amp or guiter just seems strange. They sound very good but still, it just doesn't feel right. GK, Peavey, Ampeg and many others have shifted a lot to China. Fender/SWR makes it all in Indonesia and Mexico. I know in my head they are probably every bit as good, but emotionally I can't connect.
