I have been looking to see if Squier guitars made in China would be taxed in the ongoing trade war our beloved President has started. All I can find is that guitar cases or musical instrument cases that use sheets of plastic or other textiles will have tariffs. I know that a trade war is not good for the consumers, because the Chinese can wait, and wait they will. Our President seems to forget that the majority of money borrowed to float our national debt is held by China. The Chinese also own a huge amount of US real estate. They are our friends, not our enemy. It is the same with Mexico, where are reasonably priced Fender guitars come from as well as Canada and Europe, where we get a load of music gear... Especially Marshall and Vox amps. Rant over, I am a guitarist, I am thinking only about our gear and not some grand political scheme. I just hope the prices of our beloved instruments do skyrocket. I live in TN where the pork farmers are practically lined up on a tall bridge ready to jump off over this trade war. Trade wars are bad for everyone and cannot be won, not in our global economy.
