Made in China, perfect build. No flaws that I could detect.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, great guitar for the money. Intonation was dead on. I set the action to my liking, now it plays great. The pickups are not bad, really, the neck PU has a nice warm and clear sound, but I will replace them, because I am spoiled by the DiMarzios in my other guitars. The tuners work fine. The coil-splitting feature is actually usable, and makes the guitar more versatile. I'm sure the difference between single and double will be even more pronounced when I replace the pickups. I mean, it's never going to sound exactly like a Strat or Tele, but single coil will get you close enough. I plan to spend another $200 or so to beef this 335 up. Once I do, I bet it won't sound much, if any, different than its $2k-$3k Gibson cousin.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
43mm nut, but if you already play Gibson/Epi, you're used to the slightly wider nut.
