Don't have an idea what who made your guitar?

    I don't!

    Bought my copy used and was told it was built by someone in Italy. I tried to figure out who built it, but to no avail. However, I love it cause it's kinda like a 60's tele. It's the best tele I've ever played and sounds amazing. As far as I know, the pups are a broadcaster and twisted tele and it has a 4 way switch. Thin paint and nice fat neck. It's got its quirks...

    Anyone else not know where their guitar comes from?

    I've seen the good folks who made my Martin guitars many times at the factory in Nazareth, PA.

    Great people...great place!

    I’ve owned a lot of guitars made in a lot of places around the world. In most cases I’ve got the name of a country but that’s all. What I’d really like to have is a video of people working in the factory where each guitar was built. Is that crazy? What if that became a thing with a new guitar purchase? A player might have videos from China, Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Canada, the United States, among others, showing some of the people who might have worked on their guitar.

    Builders of unauthorized full-copy guitars usually don't indentify themselves by name.
