    I guess i am a bit upset working for a former swedish company,now a multinational big corporation with a spanish boss,a dutch security manager that screams and threatens people.Not fun when you are marginalised to only a cost.I guess that is the way it works but pride goes away.

    As someone who works for long-standing American company who started going global a few years ago, I can attest to the fact that it is very very difficult to do global properly. Maintaining quality, in either product or service, is a constant struggle, with continual course corrections.

    To that end, I think that PRS has done an incredible job of maintaining (and improving) the quality of their products, providing a consistently high level of customer service, and successfully globalizing and maintaining quality with the SE line.

    Plus, they make some bitchin' guitars...

    Well, I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser, have driven Toyotas for eons.
    I do buy a lot of made in America stuff too though.

    In April I bought a brand new Gibson '61 SG Reissue, and a Carvin V3M amp which is made in CA.

    Now the huge company I work for has gone global (hint, aircraft company that starts with a B) and it caused a major delay in getting one of the latest birds off the ground due to parts not fitting correctly.

    And today or tomorrow I take possession of my first PRS guitar, but it is made in South Korea, not the USA.
    But I hear the quality is top notch on them, often rivaling American made guitars costing two to three times as much.
