OLP
Officially Licensed Product. Instruments previously produced in China between the early 2000s and 2009. Distributed by Hanser Music Group in Hebron, KY, and earlier by HHI located in Cincinnati, OH.
OLP (Officially Licensed Product) offered guitars and basses that are licensed from several large trademarks (Ernie Ball/Music Man, Traben, McSwain, Coffin Case, Orange County Choppers, etc.). This allows guitar manufacturers to offer an entry-level priced guitar without having to physically produce them. The OLP trademark was retired in 2009.
