with the way the world is going, in the future will we be able to get guitars from china and places. will epiphone guitars still be around, we are ready can't get a Fender mim new now. I hate to say all my guitars and basses except for my american made fender telecaster is made overseas or mexico. and i have to be honest right now since i have retired most american guitars are a little to much money for me. we may in the future see know more squire's made over seas.
