so ive noticed recently that the same american muscle vs. ricer debate can also be applied to guitars. some poeple swear by american brands like fender, gibson,martin, taylor etc while others favor ibanez, esp, alvarez, etc. so what do you think about this pit? what factors apply to both debates and what brands do you swear by?

Japanese goods are very good quality.

They shouldn't come under the traditional "chinese/taiwanese/asian - made goods stereotype"

My mate has a MIJ Fender. It's probably the best playing guitar I've ever had my hands on.

I love PRS. But it's got nothing to do with it being an American company. If Ibanez made PRS shaped guitars, and they felt/played the same, and were of the same quality, i'd still want one.

And not to start a debate or anything, but I can't stand driving American cars.

My personal experience with guitars is that Japan > US. Hard to really compare Korean, Chinese, etc. to something like Mexican or alike, still haven't tried quite enough guitars :P

With cars, I'm sure it's different somewhere else, but here in Finland, American cars are much worse than Asian. Welcome to the winter "wonderland" where most US made cars break down instantly and/or refuse to start up when the weather isn't perfect. I've got nothing against US cars, I like them mostly, but they're just not made for our weather conditions ^^
Guitars:

My dream guitar.

EDIT:

I swear by Ibanez, by the way. I have tried several, and I love them.

Mhmmkay.

No offense.
I was hoping you weren't some like 16 year old saying stupid shit about cars.

EDIT: Also about guitars, I have no preference where they are from. As far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter.

I'd like to play my Ibanez while driving around an Evo or a GTR. To give credit though, American muscle is my second favorite.

it kinda seems like a good combo though you know like an ibanez s=evo, pretty fast but accurate and great handling. while a les paul=ss chevelle balls to the wall power but kinda heavy.
