Re: Tried out New ART100...kinda
Yup, the Chinese made models deserve a look. I recently picked up a Chinese made Artcore AWD82T, mostly on a whim. I'm very impressed with the quality. For what it's worth, I've owned well over 100 Ibys by now, nearly all of them Japanese-made and many of them high end. This guitar is on par with the rest of the pack.
Did I hijack this thread? (sorry...)
