...however that doesn't mean all the parts are made in the USA.... e.g. pickup selector.... the pickup selectors for both my Les Paul and my Flying V needed replacing.

ARE YOU LISTENING GIBSON????

The bodies and necks were shaped in the United States and the guitar was finished and assembled in the States as well. That's where Gibson's steeper price comes from, paying American workers vs. paying Korean workers.


You've gotta be careful with some guitar companies, such as B.C. Rich. They have a sticker on the back of the headstock that reads "Assembled in the U.S.A" which means the parts were shaped and fabricated overseas. The parts were then put together here in the U.S.
