Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
For 25 bucks I'm not expecting anything amazing, but the plastic housing does feel a little cheap.
How has it stood up over time?
So far so good. I wanted something I could keep at work, so inexpensive-ness was a factor.
Your general opinion of this product.
Not bad. Pretty good value for the money, but if you can afford something better, I'd go for it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
When holding it, it does feel a little light and flimsy, but it seems to hold up well enough.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Personally I don't like the way the distortion sounds. It sounds a little too electric and nasally. However of course I realize that the actual sound of the distortion is subjective; it might be the perfect sound for you, just not for me. But it is pretty impressive that it has a sweepable mid.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Not crazy about the hot pink, but it makes it easy to find in the dark.
How was the action out of the box?
I find the knobs to be a little stiff, but once I get them where I want them it plays fine.
