Great bang for the buck

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
For the price I paid, this is a very well made bass. It is a very simple design so I can't see it having any dependability problems.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The sound is undoubtedly the best feature of the Thunderbird IV. I would change the strap anchor placement.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The pickups sound great for humbuckers.The tone is smooth and consistent, with decent sustain. The stock strings are good for any style of playing (picking, slapping, etc)
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is nice. It doesn't appear to dent or scuff like other basses I have. It is not a polished finish so it doesn't show fingerprints.
