If you like the guitar why would you care where it's made?
Why do people pay more for MIA or MIJ guitars? Quality? Quality of the wood...of the electronics...of the hardware...of the paint...of the finish detail. To say "ah who cares where its made" is really kinda ignorant...and ignores the skill set of the production factory and the level of detail Ibanez is willing to pay the production people for the finished product.
