Kind of disappointed
By: Dubsak from Harrisonville Mo
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I found the fit and finish very lacking. Korean guitars are usually, fairly well made. This one, however, I didn't like. Finish problems in the clearcoat, where several of the frets were put in. I even seen another one on ebay, with the exact same problem. A for attempting to give the guitar a lot of features at a reasonable price point, C for putting it all together.
Your general opinion of this product.
I was disappointed overall with this guitar. I really wanted to like it, because I'm a huge fan of Rob, and wanted a baritone. I just couldn't live with the fit and finish. I ended up buying a Schecter Hellraiser EX after sending this one back, and it was a night and day difference in overall quality. I don't want it to seem like I'm totally ragging the guitar...maybe I built it up in my head, and was expecting too much. The Schecter blew me away, though.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I was disappointed in the tone. Since it's a baritone, I expected crisp, clear chords down in standard B tuning...but for some reason, it sounded really muddy. It was probably due to the fact that the guitar was begging for a setup, but I didn't make it that far, since I knew I was sending it back.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job looked nice, but there were several spider lines in the clearcoat, coming from where the frets were put in.
