Advantages of a wide neck guitar:
A wide neck electric guitar means that you can allow more room between the strings. The wide neck on the Big Lou electric guitar measures 1 7/8" wide. This wide neck allows for a full 8 mm between the strings.
The wide neck on the Big Lou electric guitar is much easier for a beginner to play. Accuracy does not count as much. Your playing will sound better, as it is harder to make a mistake on a wide neck guitar.
The wide neck guitar is also better for the larger players who have big hands and fingers. The 8 mm string spacing allows for more room for large fingers. This decreases errors, and enhances the sound while playing songs.
The wide neck guitar can still be an advantage for players with smaller diameter fingers. No matter who you are, the added spacing between the strings just make the guitar easier to play.
There are some acoustic guitars that feature a wide neck and more space betweent the strings. If you are used to playing one of these, then the Big Lou wide neck electric guitar will feel like home.
Some of the very experienced (15+ years) players who first picked up a Big Lou wide neck electric guitar said that it felt a bit strange at first. However, after spending several minutes playing on it, they said, it's really no problem getting used the increased string spacing. If felt fine. Additionally, if there is a complicated riff that you are having trouble with, chances are good that you'll be able to play that riff without mistakes on a wide neck Big Lou electric guitar. This happened with some players at the Summer NAMM trade show in 2010.
I can tell you from personal experience, once you play this wide neck guitar for a few weeks, going back to a 1 5/8" neck feels like a move in the wrong direction. It's like, you never noticed how difficult it was, until you got spoiled by a wide neck electric guitar. Getting used to a wide neck electric guitar usually means that you don't ever wish to pick up a skinny neck guitar again. The increased need for accuracy is not really missed or appreciated.

About manufacturing in China. Here at LC Enterprises, we've been partnering with factories in China for almost a decade. The simple reason, is to reduce the cost of our products. China has the ability to turn out cheap, low quality products, and also more expensive high quality products. The final quality level depends upon what the buyer asks for. As an importer, we are the buyer. If we ask for "a low price", we get a low price, with lower quality. If we ask for high quality, we get it, at a higher cost.. When it comes to guitars, we ask for high quality. The cost will still be low enough. The good money exchange rate, and lower chinese wages all contribute to an affordable cost. So, there is no reason to compromise the quality of a guitar.
The group of craftsmen at our factory is second to none. They have all the experience of any guitar maker in the world. We are proud of our ability to seek out the best craftmen, and produce a high quality product, at an affordable price.
