I think it is. A few years (I think it was quite a few to tell you the truth) ago I believe Mele experimented with having some ukes made in Mexico. They ended up being subpar I believe so they stopped. Of course I have no idea if this is true, I am going off my memory of what I read a few years ago. I have played the 6 string Mele from Mexico that 3nails4holes won and its quality was no where near the quality of my regular mele 6 string form the philipines.
