So where are the semi hollow and hollow body guitars being made nowadays?
I gather it's somewhere other than Memphis?

Time will tell how the move to Nashville will work out. They have a lot of "precious" equipment to move.
I'm sure glad I'm all stocked up on ES models and won't be looking to buy any, one way or the other.

Are they not opening a new factory somewhere else in Memphis? I thought they were just looking for a cheaper alternative! If they're moving production to Nashville a lot of people are going to loose their jobs, and that's always sad.

When they announced that they would be selling the current facility, they said that they would be moving production to another facility in Memphis. Since then, a new management team has been put in place. They have different plans....

I'm sure it was a difficult decision. At the same, if they need to do it, now's probably a good time. [thumbup]
