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.

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.
