    Its got nothing to do with design. everything remains the same. Except Quality control and craftsmanship. They are very strict in Jap made instruments.

    Simple ...the cost of products made in developed courntries will always b higher coz the purchasing power of the population is much higher than the developing or da third grade countries.

    strict is an understatement! My bro saw some pics of a small time JAP factory and theyve got some Quality control laws pasted all over the walls. They have to exercise , do yoga and wierd shyt

    lots of history behind it. ESP was called Electronics Sound Products....started as a place where guitar replacement parts were made blah blah blah. George Lynch visited them when he was touring in Japan cus he had broken his guitars neck or something. He asked them to make him a custom guitar. They had a brand of guitars called Navigator. Then came ESP. Then came Edwards. Then came LTD . Then came Grassroots....quality levels....
    Navigators...friggin expensive....awesome quality
    ESP.............Quite expensive.....killer quality
    Edwards.......Ok-Ok pricing.......killer quality (little lower than ESP standard series.
    LTD.............Good Pricing.......not made in Japan(most)...places like Korea and Indonesia....very so-so quality. pricing(comparitively).........made with "budget parts" but good quality timber etc etc.

    When i say budget parts i mean LFRs,Gotohs and Seymour Duncans and EMG Passives.

    thats abt it
