I'd like to think Ludwig is on much better financial footing in its own home country. Personally I think they have too many people who recognize and love the product for that to even be a consideration. They, along with Gretsch to a smaller degree, did survive the Japanese onslaught that killed names like Camco, Rogers, and Slingerland, although it probably wasn't a pretty survival, they did nonetheless ;)
