I’ve seen a few times in his vids where he’ll get a guitar to work on, sometimes a pretty new one and he’ll go to adjust the truss rod and they just spin loosely, gooched truss rod, non adjustable…
I doubt if I’ll ever be buying any 4k acoustics :-), l looked them up though they do look nice!
I did get my action a lot nicer on my telecaster the other day after it settled in a little… It’s very straight right now and I think I’m going to loosen it just a little for a little bit of relief.
So I was watching this one guy on the tube the other day, he seems to know a lot about these guitar companies… and he’s talking about how these Fender American mades and many others that claim to be USA are just partially assembled here… the Signature type series guitars are nothing like what the endorsees are playing which are all made mostly by a few total pro guitar guys here in the states… He was talking about how Peavey only made their necks here and then they claimed that was 52% of the guitar and therefore made in the USA, meanwhile the body and the pickups were coming from somewhere overseas… I saw a guy that claimed he used to work at Peavey on a forum saying the same sort of thing.
So really none of it’s made in the USA, with the US fenders you might get a little better hardware, better fret job, nicer this/that, setup etc, and better quality control but it’s basically the same shit… Some of these $300 foreign jobs like the Welch telecasters are looking pretty nice to me.
