    I noticed a few things.

    1. Kinda wierd seeing Jacksons and SWR's coming out of that plant too.

    2. Mexican tremolos are actually made in Taiwan. Gig bags are Chinese.

    3. At least one person was slacking off enough to notice the camera and mimick Tricky Dick.

    4. I want a new Mexican Fender.

    Ensenada. And no, they won't sell factory direct.
