    However, I'm trying to keep perspective on it....A lot of the MIK Fender and Squier product has come close to hitting Japanese standards. Maybe a Korean-made Guild could be a decent guitar.

    I am not so concerned where it's made as how it's made

    All true. It isn't a patriotic thing but I kind of feel betrayed when they send production overseas and keep the prices the same

    I do like having controls for each pickup
    So the Jazzmaster set up is nice

    Although the Jazzmaster rhythm circuit doesn't sound exactly like the neck pickup au natural.... That is a peculiarity
