General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar looks great and I'm sure it would sound incredible if only you could play it. I ordered one and it came with a huge hump in the neck where it joined the body. This made most of the frets unplayable. I returned it and had another sent to me, but it had the same exact problem. I would assume that most of them will. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Because of the problem with the neck, I'd say the quality is very low, although the rest of the guitar looked fine. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Felt great while holding it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Unable to tell, sadly. Action How was the action out of the box? Very low. Don't order this guitar and expect to be able to play slide on it. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful Reliability How has it stood up over time? NA
