A large percentage of guitars sold globally are built by just two OEM buillders, Samick and Cort. All the cheap lines got moved to plants they both built in Indonesia as labor became expensive in Korea. In 2001 I got a chance to tour the Samick factory in Inchon from raw materials to finish setup on both electric and acoustic lines. This is the plant were all the hand work and attention to fit and finish is done on higher end guitars. Lots of different brands on the headstocks that come out of those factories.
