Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, this is a well made tool that is a necessity for anyone who maintains their guitar.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The plastic that the winder is made of is quite good. It is thick and very sturdy. This particular model has a metal rod within it to control the winding and prolong its service life. I absolutely love this tool as I have been foregoing using these and simply using my hands to string guitars. This one even has a small compartment in the handle that can hold some small bits (bridge pins, etc.)to boot!!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
molded plastic over steel. Not much flashing on the mold lines. Very clean and well finished before it was packaged.
How has it stood up over time?
Seems like it will last a long time. Very well made.
