PGM30 Korean models

Thats what I thought

I thought all the PGM30s were Japan made as well. However, I saw one in a store that said made in Korea on the back of the headstock. Just wondering if anyone else has seen these?

Yeah some were Korean.
I remember Clive (earthman) saying he used to have a Korean made PGM30 but that was a few years ago.
I think the first few years the PGM30 was made in Korea and then they switched it to Japan but can't tell you when for sure.

There's a PGM site that might have more knowledgeable folks.

They made them a Prestige model in 03' and production moved to Japan.
