Sexiest looking guitar of all time.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Only had it about 3 weeks, but I was very suprised about how heavy the guitar was considering it is a Hollowbody. Very solid construction, the tuners are really good quality. Fretboard feels great.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Here are my thoughts good and not so good: Let's start with the most important "not so good": No case, a guitar this great looking needs one, factory recommends Gretsch 6242L for a 17" hollowbody msrp $149.99 not avail on AMS unfortunately. Knobs are plastic it would be worth it to upgrade to the Gretsch gold plated knobs. It's made in Korea, so expect very minute cosmetic flaws, mine was a ultra tiny scratch in the neck binding and paint on the 2nd fret, and there was what looked like lint that got onto the paint while it was wet on the bottom side of the neck around the 3rd fret. But again, it was ultra tiny, and if I wasn't going over it witrh a magnifying glass, would never have caught it. Ok the Good, outside of that this guitar looks amazing, my chic saw it and said it was the sexiest music instrument she had ever seen, it sounds great, the sustain is money. My band plays traditional rock n roll, and this is perfect tone for it.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
If you have read any reviews on the guitar, they all comment on the pick ups as not being as high output as Gibsons. this is true, but they do have a really awesome crunchiness to them and a great midrange tone when playing clean. I personally though, am having the proshop install some TV Jones Power Tron Plus pick ups before recording with this guitar.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The Paint is awesome flat "Black" It actually looks more like a super dark green, but still look absolutely great, especially with the gold hardware.
