General
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar plays like a dream.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I couldn't find so much as a finger print on this.It is perfect. One really well made guitar. As good or better than any custom shop guitar!
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I've always liked brighter pickups. They're not dark and heavy, but have a really great tonal range. They are quiet. You can pretty well dial in most any sound you want.They're not P90's, but are bright and really get the job done!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Like I said before, the finish on this guitar is flawless. Even the case was clean.The wood grain is amazing and the cherry red is right on.
