The list of German guitars covers mainly DDR production. Western Germany represented only by a couple of instruments that are definitely cheesy.
DDR-made guitars were among the best of all "Eastern block" guitars - the communist rule could not easily make German people lazy and ignorant, so the quality of the instruments remained relatively high. Musimas were usualy priced twice higher than other Soviet/Czechoslovakian/Bulgarian instruments on the market behind the Iron Curtain. Musima guitars and basses were the instruments of choise of many professional musicians in the Eastern Europe. Although considered a "hi-end" in the "communist" region, Musimas' quality was still far from a real hi-end and even "second-grade" instruments made by Hagstrom and other neighbors.
Brands like Meinel und Herold and Migma were a part of the same Musima corporation, and you can notice that certain hardware parts look the same on all of those instruments.
Unlike other "communist" brands, Musima still exists but they currently make acoustic instruments only.
