The main factory is in Memphis, Tenn. The custom shop may be in Nashville, but I'm not sure.

Memphis makes the hollowbodies, semi-hollowbodies, and all the Alpine White colored guitars (better ventilation system so other colors don't bleed).
Nashville does the rest of the electrics.
Bozeman Montana is the acoustic factory.

Some of the plastic and metal parts are made in asia, but the wood comes into the US factories raw. I think they still make the pickups in the US, too. They definitely make the guitars themselves in the US, unless you want them to stamp the parts themselves at the shop. That seems unrealistic.

The Memphis factory also does one of the custom SG reissues, I think the alpine white one as stated above, I was told when I toured there a few years ago.

Amps:

I'm sure most if not all of the pre-made parts are made outside the US. The pots are Alphas which I think are made in Korea.

The Kalamazoo factory made Gibson electrics until 1985. It's still there, but it's the Heritage factory now.

I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

2010 and its the 61 reissue

well it was most likely made in nashville then. it won't have been made in kalamazoo - gibson don't own the kalamazoo plant anymore and haven't since 1984.

it belongs to heritage now - http://www.heritageguitar.com/history.html
