    I ran across this article on Chinese guitar manufacturing: Music for world, no strings attached

    Some key things in the article...

    "56 producers of guitar and related spare parts are based out of the guitar industrial park in Zheng'an."

    "Last year, the company sold more than 600,000 guitars online, with an average monthly sales of 53,000, it said. With strong sales, and demand rising, the production volume of Baikal is inadequate. But the six other guitar producers in the industrial park help meet the demand somehow."

    Interesting. Does this mean the guitars are Made in China or Crafted in China? :)

    Just out of curiosity, what's the most expensive MIC/CIC guitar available? I think the LTD EC-1000 is close to a grand.

    I'd love to compare a CIC LTD EC-1000 with say, a MIJ, FGN NCLC100 ... almost the same price. Just curious if the CIC measures up to the MIJ.
