    1 an American Les Paul. Strat and Tele MIM. Love all of them! Acoustic I have a Canadian and not sure where the classical is made. Makes no difference to me. I had an American Strat quite a while ago but the current MIM suits me well and is my number one.

    If I'm counting correctly, 26.6% USA. But that does count a two home-built instruments. I also have guitars made in China, Korea, Indonesia, Japan, and Mexico.

    Hi, @3bolt79 -Buddy

    Currently my 1 guitar is my Gibson Les Paul Standard 50's neck.

    I would be ok with an MIM Charvel or similar too.

    Just right now I am saving for amp upgrade, buddy.

    I own 3 guitars - 2 made in USA and one made in Japan. I would never sell my Yamaha SA2200 (that's the thinking now at least).

    Most are I guess. Still have my old Yamaha FG. Oh, and the mustang bass is MiM. Might have an Epi LP down in the basement too.

    75%. My 1988 Guild Pilot bass, 2005 Taylor 214, and 2010 American Standard Strat are all USA built. Only guitar I own that isn't is my Epiphone AJ-100ce acoustic.
