Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Its a high quality Chinese made acoustic guitar.Haven't had any issues. As time has passed I have upgraded nut, saddle and pins to Tusq and added a Martin Thinline pickup. If it was ever lost or damaged, I will replace next day and upgrade same way or maybe take the splurge on the Gibson model.
Your general opinion of this product.
Its a very nice replica of the classic.Epiphone should have a Masterbuilt version of the Dove.Someday I might justify the cost for the Gibson model. For the money this guitar is unbeatable for look, feel, quality and sound.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish was great on guitar. Spruce top almost looked bookmatched but a close eye can tell its not.No sloppy glue on kerfing or bracing but you can tell these go together very quick at factory. The maple laminate back and sides look good. Has strap pins. Body has a thick high gloss polyurethane finish obviously to keep costs down. Fretwork work was great.Tuners are Grover which are great and pickgaurd looks very good but not as refined as the Gibson.
