i thought fame was musicstore cologne's house brand? I think their guitars are made in poland (that's what they claim, anyway).

Unless there's another Fame (which is always possible).

"Fame" was an old Hondo brand. I think there is some truth in the Tokai connection but a lot were made in Korea by Samick and others.

Some of the Musicstore's Fames are made, or at least were made, by Mayones, a Poland manufacturer: http://www.mayones.com

They do high quality stuff. I own one of their basses, it is a hell of an instrument.

never tried a mayones, but they're meant to be high-end, custom shop quality stuff.
