So, a local store has a G&L Tribute legacy that Im going to check out after work today.

Im wondering if anyone knows if since they moved to Indonesia from korea plants has the quality suffered?

I know when they were at Korea all of the tributes were checked and set up in the US by the same guys that did the USA made ones. is this true?

The G&L is $499.(maybe I can talk him down a tad, its a little shop)

a new 2009 Fender goes for $450... the new 2009s are really nice and really beat out older models.

a used Fender can be got for 300ish. the saved money can be used to mod the shit out of it. so, whats your opinion? I have to play the GL but its the most expencive guitar im considering. wondering what all you folks think
