I'd say it means they're built in mexico, China or Korea.

Built on a boat in international waters?
Seriously, though it is cool to have a affordable (if you can call 3000-4000 affordable?!) actually let me say instead, less expensive alternative, and Im sure Thomas Lieber would not put himself behind a piece of junk no matter where it is made....
.......................................................have you heard the one about the yellow dog?
Myself, I have twice in the past and would likely again in the future be more likely to engage a domestic luthier than buy a $3K+ import. But Messrs. Lieber and Irwin, have you given any consideration to augmenting your small product line with a student/economy-level J-caster - the equivalent of say a PRS SE or import Reverend guitar - priced at around a grand for beginning and/or financially-challenged Deadheads? That's where I see a true price/performance point gap waiting to be filled.

"For me, I think the only danger is being too much in love with guitar playing. The music is the most important thing, and the guitar is only the instrument." JG
Sounds cool though I kind of have a made in the USA thing going on with my gear these days that I am sort of proud of...I would certainly consider something those guys were involved with even if it was made in the far east or Central America.
