Awesome Guitar! Awesome investment Too!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I had it now for about a month and I can say it really is made nice (and I mean NICE)! Sturdy for sure. I often depend on it for my recording and teaching studio.
How has it stood up over time?
So far so good! Don't expect it to go bad on me. Just take care of it and it'll serve you well. Oh yeah, it comes with an awesome/beautiful full padded soft case. Made extremely well and something you would be proud of to carry around (seriously).
Your general opinion of this product.
A very nice guitar. Well made, excellent craftmanship. It has a good feel to it and the sound is smooth and balanced, plugged or unplugged. Good to great tone in it's bass, mid range and trebbble. overall I find it to be an outstanding guitar (not for kids though)! Definately an adult guitar!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Feels nice in your hands, good set-up, nice neck shape (thinner) and easy to get to the electronics (real easy, especially where they placed them) This is a keeper for sure!! You won't go wrong with this one - trust me on this. It's totally professional!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Smooth, but bright highs, warm bass and even a balanced mid-range too. I love it! Hech, it even comes with its own "Fishman" built-in tuner - a big plus guys and gals!
How did the stain or paint job look?
Pro finish all the way...looks super and even feels smooth on the hands by the neck. And don't kid yourself, the neck is not thick (fat) like other classicals - they narrowed it down a bit so that you can play other types of music. Cool huh?
How was the action out of the box?
Great action right out of the box - no professional set-up needed here. And, I know, I have been playing for nearly forty years now and teaching as well! They actually did a fine job on the set-up!! Plus they used expensive quality strings too.
