    Welcome to the board, Timothy.

    If you perform a search in the Basses forum, you'll find an olde rthread in which people have already given some opinions on the Myung bass. Not all that positive, from what I recall.

    As far as where it's made, I haven't the foggiest idea, and considering the things that are coming out of Korea these days (Like the Conklins), I think this will become a lesser issue over time, although cost will obviously continue to be a factor.

    Oh, and don't forget to fill your profile.
