    no different a dilemma for so many other US products like pianos or gubs

    It is a question of trade policy and the support of localized artisanal industries and of course a corporate critique since Yamaha makes really good pianos and motorcycles among other things (if I could only afford a Bösendorfer haha)

    American manufacturers, not just manufacturers of musical instruments, need to step up their game and start making quality products here at home. Not only make these products here but also pay their employees enough so that if they wanted to—they could purchase the product they are making.
