    My #1 Logan? Wisconsin, but the neck is presumably from overseas and finished in cheese-land. And the pickups are from Arizona.

    My #2 Danelectro? That’s from Neptune.

    My toronado, tele, and duosonic are all made in the place Futurama refers to as America's heartland (Mexico).

    Mustang japan. Strat Indonesia.

    The other breakdown?

    4 have schaller straplocks, one dunlop. Wherever those are made...

    The duosonic has pickups made by Buddha, so those are from Pennsylvania, bridge pickup of the mustang is made by Bootstrap, about 40 minutes away in Ohio.
    I think the Gibson and Fender lace sensors are US, couldn't say where. Tele is stock, so Mexico is my guess. Ditto with the toronado bridge on the mustang, assuming mexico.

    I need to pickup a US fender and a Korean Gretsch to round it all off.

    You gonna ask about amps next?

    My main guitar is a parts Tele. MIJ Fernandes neck, the rest is probably from China. It has Fender Nocaster pickups but I have no idea where they’re made.

    We the guitar players are an astonishing phenomenon. I cannot imagine any other consumer group obsessing about where their bought products, or even components of their products originate from.

    Just fascinating!

    Wrong. Ask a car nut who checks the window sticker to see how much of his car was made in Germany.

    My Eastman is from China, and arguably the best made guitar I have.

    Hmmm, I know car owners can be very obsessive but I never met one that was very particular where the pieces of the car were made. But I guess there could be a few like that :)

    There are many theories and beliefs around the origin of my guitars, None can be confirmed.
