    Here's a 13.45k version for the R&R folk?

    I purposefully left the link out so Dimarzio doesn't get his pantaloons in a bunch.

    One person's "fantastic" is another person's "meh".

    Also, "best I've ever played" doesn't mean much if the person poasting it has only been to Guitar Center.

    You're quoting me out of context. I lived in China, traveled all over and visited dozens of guitar shops there. So when I talk about Chinese guitars, I know because have had a very close up look at a lot of them. But it was already pointed out to me that they are exporting some fine stuff. Thing is, bulk manufacturing is what they do best. That works well with electromechanical stuff like pickups, not so much with an artisan product (or what should be one), like a guitar neck. It can be done but there is a lot of effort in the skills tranfer.

    It's a little strange. There are a lot of top notch guitars made in China for low prices, such as the Squier Classic Player, or Cordoba classical guitars, or a brand called "Recording King" that sells some models for as low as $150 that leave little to nothing to be desired, but then you see no name stuff on AliExpress that isn't much cheaper, but is much, much worse in terms of fit and finish. I bought one just to see what they were all about and documented the thing here http://www.tdpri.com/threads/160-chinese-telecopy.693627/ . Most of the problem with this guitar comes down to a lack of attention to detail, there is effort being put into it, but various things are done wrong. So the question I have is, why can't the people working on the better guitar brands share some knowledge with the people making the no name stuff?
