I know this is probably a moot point, but are the Specials also made in the USA, and aside from the non-arch top and lack of tone pot, what's the difference between the standard and special?

I don't understand why guitar manufacturers have to use stupid labels like "special." It makes me more hesitant to buy a guitar with a name like this - yeah it's superficial, but I can't be the only one who feels this way. It makes me think of the "Blue Light Special" at K-Mart. If it's essentially the same guitar, why not just add some sort of abbreviation in the name, like "AT" (arch top.)
