Quality of manufacturing locations

I understand most of the basics of using serial number to determine location and have read ibanezrules com/catalogs/reference/dating.htm

I'm more interested in understanding the quality of the various manufacturing locations. I know Japan pretty much only Prestige at this point so it appears Indonesia, China and Korea(?) are where most models are built. Are there other locations and what can be expected of the quality? Also, does Ibanez reveal the manufacturing locations in any way before you have the guitar in hand?

Re: Quality of manufacturing locations

Ibanez doesn't give that info up front. I learned from reading Jemsite that most of their Japanese guitars are made by Fujigen Gakki, check them out at fgnguitars.com.

I'm impressed by their quality. A shop called Sugi does the high-end, handcrafted stuff.
