made in china

The guitar that i have was made in china but it plays and looks great(it is a Johnson guitar).I was wondering if any other brand is made in china and if they are, are they of bad quality? It just sort of bothered me because my guitar is really nice but it was made in china. does it matter?

Re: made in china

I just bought a Johnson resonator guitar, made in China. I live in Japan and can't find any information anywhere about the Johnson Company. Who are they? Where are they based?

Re: made in china

Greetings Mr. Johnson Guitar owner,

I believe I understand your concerns about a product made in China. Your guitar looks and plays to good to be true. I purchased a Johnson (JT-800_ Telecaster on line @ auction. The unit was near perfect. I took it to my local guitar shop. The guitar was set up Professionally, for me. This guitar is awesome. I have another guitar brand that was purchased new. That does not sound half as good as this Taiwan made instrument. After having said that. Let's look at a few issues. Most of us would like a name brand $2000.00 + guitar. However most of do not want to put out the big bucks. :-) Your guitar was made by a craftsman using the mold of that famous guitar model it replicates. Most likely the only issues that will surface is to have your instrument set up for your playing style. Maybe upgrade the tuning machines or selector switch if you are having trouble. Then all you have to do is ROCK ON! The money you saved can be invested in a good american amp and maybe a hard case for your new Baby. Note: Free China is an ally of the United States. We need all of the allies we can get. Even the famous "Fender Guitar Brand", has a specific model made in China. :-) CHECK IT OUT ON LINE TODAY!

Enjoy your new toy!

Sincerely,

yeah, got a cheap TGM model C3 classical w/o trust rod for Singapore $150 sounds great n loud with good resonance. from the dealer he told me that TGM means The Music Man - originated in USA n now made in China ??? in another guitar shop in my country, they display a look-alike National resophonic single cone at the 12th fret n it's going at Singapore $950. this is my first encounter with a national or steel dobro (look-alike or original)can someone tells me if the price is worth... note: US $1 abt S$ 1.73

I'm a retired pro musician and have been playing guitar for nearly 40 years now and I recently acquired a Fender Squire Telecaster that has 'Crafted in China' on the back of the headstock. The guitar is far from being a cheap, bottom-line student model! It is extremely well-built and the quality is that of a top-of-the-line model in both looks and sound. I compared it to an American-made '52 Telecaster reissue and the only noticable difference between the two was the US model's much, much higher price tag. It just goes to show that money doesn't always buy the best. So, don't let the 'Made in China' put you off buying a well made guitar.

`Collecting guitars

I want to start collecting guitars, new and vintage for appreciation in value, as well as for my own personal playing enjoyment. What brands and models are best bets for appreciation over the years. Is there a publication that traces historically the increase in value of guitars. Thanks for any imput.

Re: `Collecting guitars

There is a great website that gives insight into collectiblitly of various guitars both electric, acoustic, hollowbody electric etc. It is www.provide.net/~cfh This guy knows everything. As for starting a collection. Try to decide what you want in terms of what you would actually play. My biggest problem as a collector is I have a bunch of guitars that I never want to play. I'm finding that I'd rather have four or five really really nice vintage guitars that I play all the time than have 12 that sit and collect dust while I only play two or three. Hope this helps!

Re: `Collecting guitars

Got to be honest here, unless you have *serious* money (and I mean you're willing to invest more than your mortgage into this), the traditional 'collectors' guitars are just out of the question, if you're just starting today. The collecting community is by tradition very narrow in focus, and to collect today (without eye-watering investment levels) you need to break away from tradition.

First, decide why you're doing it. If you just want to do it for the money, you're probably looking at the wrong hobby. If you'e a player, then you ought to look at collecting a category that you like to play so that you can get playing pleasure from your investment.

Without knowing your area of interest (electric, acoustic, bass, etc etc) it's a bit hard to be specific - but take the collecting communities opinion on what is and isn't collectible with a grain of salt.

Hope this helps,
Andy

Never matters!

If it plays good and you like it,,,,, who cares!!!

Aria Pro II mdel#4120033

I have the above listed model Aria Pro II (no other name on the neck). It has 1 "3-wire" HB, n 2 S/C p/ups (bar type-no name, no individual screw settings), 1 500K volume, 1 500K push/pull tone which also acts as a tap switch, a 5 position slide switch and a pickguard mounted input jack.., Strat style body painted gloss black w/flat black pickguard, and a Kahler "Flyer" tailpiece. The tailpiece looks to be factory on the body, but appears to be aftermarket (although it is by Kahler) for the lockdown on the headstock with a plastic spacer between it and the neck. It's flat and mounted to a curved surface which makes me doubt it ever came from the factory this way. The stap bolts are brass with white plasdtic washers (e washers each).

I'm trying to find out when it was made, the type/model, and whether it's the original hardware, the price, collector's value, etc. The bridge was missing parts, but luckily I found "suitable" replacements for 2 and "homemade" the other. But, without the exact replacements the tailpiece is only about 90% adjustable. I would like to hook it up right. Can anyone help?
