Thread Name: Do you buy Fender and Gibson products ?
Subject: RE: Do you buy Fender and Gibson products ?
Had a Gibson B20 flattop once. Lovely small body acoustic. An old friend helped me replace the bridge, saddle, nut, and tuners to improve its tone and tunability. It was made in the USA with a crappy plastic adjustable bridge, plastic saddle and nut, and some worn out tuners. However the design otherwise, and the wood, was good so it was worth reconditioning. Foolishly sold it to another friend.

Have some Fenders right now. Tele, Strat, and a cheap acoustic for student use. I assume your USA has trade agreements with the countries of origin like my Canada does. You do know that many guitars are made of woods that come from places other than their place of manufacture? Just askin'.

Most of my instruments are Canadian made, Beneteau, House, Godin, Cox. My Toyota Rav4 is also Canadian made.

Peace, Mooh.
