Thread Name: Do you buy Fender and Gibson products ?
Subject: RE: Do you buy Fender and Gibson products ?
I sympathise Henry. I don't like the Chinese government nd its human rights record. But talking bullshit about Chinese products doesn't help really.

I always wanted a solid wood Yamaha guitar but I couldn't afford one til they moved production to China. Is it as good as the jap product, no its not. Buts its all I can afford.

Similarly I own three Fender acoustasonic amps. They're all excellent. I think all made in China.

No doubt our forefathers who suffered as POW's in the hands of the japs would find it hard to forgive us. And as the song says, we forgave the Germans and now we are friends'.

I have no idea what the answer to all this puzzling stuff is, I only know that I have to function as well as I can as an artist. Less than that would be selling short all the people who have supported me.
