What is your overall opinion of this product?
Absolutely love it.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Well I have the noiseless N3 single coil pick-ups in it and that being said this guitar will play anything. I use it for hard rock, alternative and even metal.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Its a very well balanced guitar. The neck is exactly how you would picture a telecaster neck to be. But after getting used to how large the neck is playing lead on it is so easy it practically plays itself. From sweeps to penatonics and legato this baby can do it all.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
As i said earlier, the noiseless pickups i have in it are just amazing. i can go from a standard fender tone to a heavy EMG sounds. Very versatile guitar
How did the stain or paint job look?
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
great guitar for the price.
