Re: FRM100 -- Paul Gilbert, Fireman released on Ibanez website
From a quality control point of view MIC doesn't bother me. The only thing is that living in Japan means I get better "value" on made in Japan domestic products. Still, I got a killer deal on my vox AC15C1 new and that was made in China by a Japanese owned company (korg). Maybe I'll be able to pick up one of these bad boys for a song when stores blow them out in a year or so. I saw a brand new pgm401 being blown out at 40% of ibanez.jp list price a couple of weeks ago. Not a huge fan of that model though.
