I own a S320 weathered black Indonesia made.
I tried 3 of this same model at the shop: one had some serious fret buzz even if the action was medium-high, the second had 2 of the 5 switch pickups positions not working at all...and the third it's mine
Pros: very light, decent starting INF1&2 pups for the price (changed them now with JB+Jazz), I lowered the string action to a good height, excellent tuning stability, nicely screened circuits.
Cons: as you know the trem arm socket is made out of cheap metals and usually snaps after 6 months or so of really using it (if you only wiggle it a little and not divebombing all the time it will last...it's not that cheap
), fret quality is very bad...I don't know what they're made of but they wear off pretty soon, and the frets are not polished (after bending a few times they will be
))), but in a worn way that might induce fret buzzing). As I said earlier you gotta try more of them to find a decent one.
Could someone now please answer me this question: Does this same model but made in Korea has better fret quality? (i've heard that the same frets are used in Japan and Korea...unlucky me
) Any other specific differences between Korea and Indonesia?
Hope this helps you buy a prestige
and pls answer my question anyone.
