Re: Bass Guitar
Ah, no. Gibson and Fender name their guitars after people and uses. Like Les Paul (the inventor of the guitar), P-Bass (short for precision bass), Jazz Bass, Explorer, Flying V.

The electronics - pickups, pots (volume and tone controls), and all other parts will be second rate to a standard made in the USA model. So even if you're really good, it'll sound mediocre.
This is the same for all manufacturers, Ibanez included. I think the low end Fenders are better than the low end Ibanez guitars for what it's worth.
Besides, you never know. Since when does being mediocre or worse have anything to do with success in music? Listened to any music lately? Let me clarify this comment.
Below is a youtube video of Michael Manring, a bassist you have never heard of that does things on a bass you have never heard. Considered by many top bassists as a pioneer in bass playing. Have many fans? No. Note the derogatory comments on the video about a very popular and rich teenage pop star. What I'm saying is that talent does not equal popular success nor does lack of talent preclude success. EDIT: Sorry, comment on this video have moved on. There's a few where Justin Bieber is picked on as a no talent hack and the injustice of it all by enraged bass super talents the world over.
