    Interesting. You can get them for fairly cheap without the bolt on neck. They seem to have made more Fender style guitars than Gibson.

    I have read that the Brian series were ordered OEM from Korea but interested to see if that is not the case.

    I think the early (mid 90's- late 90's maybe early 00') Brians were made in Japan but with cheaper hardware, electronics etc. The early ones (mostly Fender style?) have a headstock logo very similar to the vintages series "begining of the new tradition"

    All the info I have seen on other forums from 10-12 years ago from people in Japan suggests MIK for the Brian line.. Nothing wrong with MIK guitars, they were able to make them cheaply back when the Brian line was made.
    There used to be a good page on Deviser guitars by the Australian distributor for Deviser but I can only find it using the internet archive. Check it out here.
