I'm curious about where these guitars are made:

- Schecter Diamond series.

- Two diffrent Jackson guitars

- Ibanez Prestige series

I've been thinking about getting a new guitar and I'd like to know where these guitars are made before I go and try them out.

schecters are made in china!
I think Jacksons are make in Japan!
And Ibanez are Korea and japan I think could be wrong though
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Yeah, Jacksons are, indeed, made in Japan. I tried the Slsmg and loved it, so playable and sounds so great.

if a neo nazi compares you to hitler I'd say it's meant to be a good thing, if a jew does the same thing, it's likely that they aren't particularly fond of you.

Generally speaking, the ones most people can't afford.

Actually I am 98% certain Schecter Diamond Series are made in South Korea. Just trying to be accurate. There is a 2% chance I'm wrong though. Ha ha.
Gear:1991 Fender MIJ Jazz/Squier VM Fretless Jazz -> Pitchblack -> Way Huge Green Rhino -> Boss OC-2 -> Boss DD-7 -> Markbass Tube 800 -> SWR 4x12.

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.

they moved it to china... it says so on my new Omen 6... but TS, just cause it's made in china it isn't a great guitar. My Omen 6, as just mentioned, was made in china, but it plays beautifully.

Strange when did that happen? I bought a schecter gryphon a few years back and it was made it South Korea. I got an email asking for an estimate on a custom guitar and the guy told me that Diamond Series are made in South Korea, set up in the U.S and Custom Shop are made in the U.S. And that was ten days ago that I got a reply.

EDIT: Here is his reply.

Um I only got my new Schecter a few months ago and it was made in Korea. This has to be a pretty recent change.
