About the Korean model. The volume and tone are nice and smooth. The Korean variant the neck had a gap between the body and the neck. The shape of the USA models body was shaped different. Seems that the staggard tunners on the Korean weren't as staggard as on the USA one. My opinion. And I love Korean music more than USA. I am huge fan of k-pop genre. Especially I am a fan of the bts group. If you don’t know anything about this group, here you can find some information about it http://k0reanwatch.com/tag/bts.
