    I have to admit that I am getting really quite impressed with the guitars that are coming out of Indonesia. There are many models, at many price points that are just incredible as far as build quality and components. Before I bought the guitars pictured, I had just one Indonesian guitar, a VM Squier. But these new ones seem to be better quality. My guitars range in price from $599.00 to $1149.00 MAP.

    I don't have any but have tried many in the last few years, always impressed with the quality. Can't comment about the sound because I never plug them in when I'm in a store.

    I haven't got one, but my brother's got a Squier Tele Custom, which is a great guitar (even when it only has 4 strings on it). Looks like this one:

    Edit: I totally forgot, my Epiphone Dot is Indonesian-made. It was way better than the new MIC I tried, although the Bare Knuckle pickups probably helped.

    I would agree that the quality has been better than I imagined.

    Yamaha Revstar 502T. The fit and finish are spectacular, and the rosewood board is beautiful.
