I bought a really first cheap, china made guitar, with a ply-wood top and not really intonated. This said, it cost about 20 euros and it was a great thing to start on.

yeah i got a chinese made guitar, its junk. but thats not to say all are junk. dont judge a guitar on where it came from. A cheap chinese made guitar is probably going to be the same as a cheap US made on, just the US made one will be more expensive because it was made in the US, even if the material was of the same quality, and the people putting it together were of the same skill level

I do own a Marrtinez 12 string acoustic guitar and a FV Stevens 7-stringer Electric which I frequently use on gigs and recording. I also have a few High-end US Ibanez and Washburn guitar models and you know what, the sound quality of my China guitars can compete well with my US Models. Impressive for a guitar that costs less than a quarter the price of my high-end guitars. Actually, if you ask me, based on my experience as a guitarist and a guitar tech, it's not the guitar that defines the sound of a guitarist it's actually the other way around.

Oh and one more thing, be aware as of the 1980's, all the best electronic parts in the US are MADE IN TAIWAN. I rest my case

Takamine. Made in China.

Couldn't be happier. Build quality is outstanding for the price I paid. Heck, it's outstanding for 3x the price I paid.

Don't judge a guitar based on where it's built. Judge it based on its own merit.

I have a Yamaha FG730s and I actually preferred it when I compared it to my cross country coach's Taylor electric acoustic (dunno the model...but he was sure awesome for letting us play his guitar :P).

I also tried other guitars when I got my Yamaha at the store including Martins...and I still preferred it. Kinda weird how that works considering how cheap the guitar is (I didn't know the price until I chose it lol)

Zakk Wylde actually uses four MGs on stage. One set to crushing overdrive, one set to brutal distortion, one set to crushingly brutal distortion, and the fourth set to brutally crushing overdrive.

I have a Taylor 610CE and a Larrivee L-05E but I seldom use them at gigs because I'm afraid that some joker/jammer would dent 'em. :-)

What I usually use in my gigs are either my Montana steel strings or my FV Stevens classical small body (both from China) and so far, I can't complain.

Both have superb acoustic sound, little to no grounding noise, and excellent playability.

I have had more experience with China made guitars (even knock-offs) than US originals and I can fairly say that if you'd only look closely at the features and actual materials used with the instrument, you may end up with a major steal.

Lmao, no offence but your facial expressions are kinda overused. "^_^, XD, etc)

ontopic: My takamine is made in china, and i love it. And I am soon getting an another Takamine that is chinese. Check out Blueridge, they are chinese made that are copies of Martins, but they sound amazing. Afterall, half of the stuff in your house is made in China and they are doing fine.
