HsienMo’s stated focus is to build the finest “High End” Acoustic Guitars, and they clearly are. They are not interested in making cheaper, marginal quality
Guitars that we tend to associate with Asian builders. Yes, some of their designs are “inspired” by long established brands, similar to how many famous and shockingly expensive brands got their start by copying Martin & Gibson. Among this lofty group are Collings, Larrivee, Bourgeois, Huss & Dalton, and even some lesser Asian brands like Eastman, Blueridge and dozens of other Builders. There are far too many to mention them all.
