I've owned several "plywood" sandwich body guitars and agree they were heavy. But, the advantage to such a solid and heavy body is great sustain. You can bend in and out of harmonics almost endlessly.

Someone even indicated that during the transition phase a few higher end models were made in Japan, but eventually all ended up in Korea by early 90s.


Aria never stopped selling guitars made in Japan. Obviously the factory had to change when Matsumoku closed. I think not Fujigen, more likely Terada. Cheaper guitars moved to Korean factories.

Your guitar should be Korean made.
