A: Mobius Megatar instruments are made in our factory shp in the little village of Weed, California.
Yes, Weed, California. No joke.
On some of our models in the past (and perhaps in the future) we have obtained bodies and necks from overseas, mostly Korea and China, where they have very good factories for doing that kind of work.
However, we have not found anyone to whom we could reliably subcontract the rather exacting fretwork and setup, plus of course we install the Buzz Feiten Intonation System so your playing sounds more in tune than do normal guitars or basses. The fretwork we do is of far greater precision than even very expensive guitars hanging on the wall at Guitar Center … because the action must be much better for your touch-style playing to be easy and good-sounding.
At present, we are manufacturing our own bodies and necks. We use computer equipment, for the exact laser-like precision it affords to the placement of the fretslots for example, and we use hand-finishing for the beauty of the instrument.
As always, we obtain parts for our instruments from all over the world. Our custom long-length strings, the GraphTech custom nut and saddles, the custom ‘flat top’ dual rails TrueTalker pickup used on the Eclipse and the ‘gold case’ pickup used on the Dragon, plus parts like strap buttons and our patented MegStrap are all anufactured for us in different countries. This is one of the reasons that our instruments cost less than would otherwise be the case (and of course in many other countries we can get more control over custom work than we can from US factories).
And naturally, some parts are best procured in the USA. Bartolini Pickups, for example, are made to our spec in San Leandro in California.
