Re: Made in China!!!

I'm pretty sure Prestiges are made in Japan.

Which music store were you at?

I LOVE Long & McQaude! I was just at one in Oshawa!

Well, to get a good new Ibanez, you have to spend quite a lot. More then a Les Paul Studio costs.

Re: Made in China!!!

i was under the impression the only prestige's made outside of japan were the Korean S series which were brought back to japan for 2009...? could be wrong.

Never thought I'd hear anyone say they loved L&M ... good god, wait until you visit a real music store, you'll explode.

Re: Made in China!!!

I feel like there were some Chibanezes at the store, I don't think I've actually seen a real ibanez made in china. Definitely not a prestige too...

I have seen chibanez in my local guitar shop also, it pisses me off because they give Ibanez a bad name to people that don't know any better and some poor person may buy the thing for 1500 bucks and realize it is worth 15.

Re: Made in China!!!

china can make clones of ibanez and they can declare that it was licensed by ibanez...
but not only ibanez , even fender,gibson ltd's and prs...

these are the unauthorized factory of china making imitations of popular guitar brands..

Well, I'm a fan of my Long & McQaude.

Not their deals or prices, just the people are nice, and i know a few really cool people there. I've never bought anything from there.
