Are Gibson guitars made anywhere outside of the US?

yes, in fact there is! they also make them in china and japan. but do not worry about the quality of the guitar cuz its still a Gibson guitar. Gibson also makes its Epiphone brand guitars in Asia. in my mind, Gibson `s that are made in the USA and Japan are a little better in sound than a Gibson`s from china. Chinese Gibson guitars are built to get the point across, but not to the true Gibson feel. so if you get one made there dont worry about the sound or looks. I mean A Gibson Is A Gibson.
