Paid for new, got used
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I paid for a new one, AMS shipped me an out of box, used one.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The guitar arrived in nearly unplayable condition. I was able to adjust everything and now plays fine.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Great feel now that I've fixed all the issues.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Actives can be an acquired taste. The SD Blackouts are IMHO, better tonally than EMG's.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I paid for a new guitar but AMS shipped me a wreck of a used one.
How was the action out of the box?
Horrible. Now it's fine after adjustments, new strings, etc
