My mother heard something on cable about the Chinese now making very high quality guitars and I am skeptical but I realize that sooner or later we will start seeing great guitars from China. The Chinese already make guitars like they make electronics or kitchen products, but I hadn't really seriously considered they'd make really high quality concert guitars that sound like the Spanish or French guitars.
Any info would be interesting.
fang's waiting list is getting longer and longer.... i heard he is coming back to US with some new guitars he just made... this will give the US and European a run for the money with Fang delivers a much better value proposition for same amount of investment.ysorpheus wrote:Check out RJ (RunJun) Fang guitar.
His guitars will be displayed and sold in GFA 2006 guitar foundation.org/gfacompetition.htm
Check out the vendor fair.
His all solid wood guitars range from student level to professional concert level at around $1000 ~ $4000. Fang is also an accomplished CG player.
His guitars would easily compete with luthier built guitars from US/Europe for 2x ~ 3x times of price tag.

I agree with you that chinese factories are tapping a portion of the market that otherwise would not have access to guitar. However, they get what they pay for. I did own a guitar built in China by Yamaha, long time ago. It was a good guitar, but it was a Yamaha. Your English is fine, you do not have to appologize all the time.
