i've liked the ones I've tried, but from what I hear, the QC is very variable. From what I've heard, I wouldn't buy one without getting to try it first, but if I did get to try it first and liked it, I would. If that makes sense. EDIT: whether I'd buy one over a Japanese copy, though, I'm not sure. The big problem with Gordon Smiths (other than the QC) is that the basic models are very good value, but once you start adding options, the price starts to rise very quickly indeed.

India has much better than Givson: Squier Vintage Modified - absolutely cracking guitars!
