1 FiveAces 3 months ago Just been killing time strolling through old Electromatic posts... It's quite interesting reading the old comments and wish lists of early owners, and the mods and tips contributed over the years. Gretsch really does listen to it's customers and you can see the improvements come into play with each model change! Obviously, the success of the Electromatic line is proof of that!Question: Since the beginning of the Electromatics series (5120, 5125-29, 54xx, 56xx, etc.) haven't they all been manufactured in Korea? Many posts (specifically early 51xx series) refer to some as Made in China? Was that just a generic assumption in the posts or were some actually Made in China as opposed to Made in Korea? If so, was there a significant difference in detail, quality, or QA that stood out?
