Jackson 7 strings. what do u think?
A lot of Jacksons that aren't made in the USA are made in Japan, you just have to fork out the cash for them. *Not all of the foreign models are made in Indonesia.
All of the manufacturers have competitive lines, and the price will always dictate the quality, options, availability and origin of production.
The real answer to your question lies in which one you're comfortable with, price wise and playability. *My advice is to check them out for yourself. *
Don't be fooled by the "tricks." *A lot of cheap guitars look awesome and appear to have cool options but are truly pieces of junk.
