General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Hard to beat for the money.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Very nice guitar. There is a little "play" in the tuners. They will be replaced down the road. Rest of the guitar is nice.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
After a "set-up" and new strings, plays very nice. Action is nice. Plays like a "jazz box" should. I put "Cleartone" 11's on it.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The pickups are a bit "thin" sounding (IMO) for Humbuckers. I will experiment with different pickups in the future. For now the pickups are fine.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is "Flat" and looks just fine.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
"IMO" you can't get any better for the price. The Ibanez case is a bit pricy though.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Action "Out of the Box" was good but, went to a heavier string which required a different set-up. After putting on the heavier strings and setting it up, it's plays good.
