General What is your overall opinion of this product? Neck Pickup Sounded A Little Dull, It Did Not Sound Like A Gibson P-90 At All. Guitar Has Tarnish Marks All Over The Chrome Pickup Covers, The Bridge And Tail Piece...Will Not Come Off...Very Upsetting To Receive The Guitar In This Condition Because The Box Was Open And Re-Taped Close Before It Shipped Out To Me, So That Tells Me Someone Looked This Guitar Over And Decided To Ship It Out With Defects. Makes Me Very Mad That I Waited 3 Days For This Guitar With Excitement To Play Her For Nothing! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? All The Chrome Parts Had Tarnish Marks Everywhere...Would Not Come Off....Looked Terrible! Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The Guitar Has A Great Feel....Very Easy To Play...I'd Say The Neck Was A 60's Rounded Type. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Very Dull Neck Pickup...Cannot Believe This Is A Gibson P-90 ...The Bridge Pickup Sounded Spot On. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I Had 2 Of These Models In The Past...This New One's Finish Was Not Looking Like The Others...It Looked Like I Sanded It Myself And Did Nothing Else To It....Not Good At All. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Sad To Say But I Believe The Cheaper Casino Is Way Better Then The Guitar I Received From AMS. This Guitar I Received Is Not Worth The $999.00 They Sell For! Playability How was the action out of the box? Action Was Extremely High Out Of The Case...But I Lowered It Down Nice And Low And Was Shocked That There Was NO Fret Buzz....
My Tele and acoustic guitars are going to collect some dust for awhile

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Came out of the case in almost perfect condition. A little rough edge around the F holes but otherwise perfect. Sound was really nice, can hit some harmonics that will give you a chill. Very light guitar , nice tapered neck. Very easy to play and hard to put down. This is guitar # 7 for me and I think the others are going to collect some dust for awhile. Even sounds nice unplugged. Cannot beat it for the price. Seems a lot better then the base model Casino. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? For the price I think it is made very well. Can work for rock, pop and jazz. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very and I mean very light. Neck is fast with a slight taper .Controls are easy to get to and I do not accidentally hit the toggle which happens all the time with my strat. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Rings like a bell and smooth as butter. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Really nice, perfect paint job. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I think it sounds and feels like guitars twice he price. Liked it better then a comparable Gibson that was more then twice the price. Playability How was the action out of the box? Action is good. Strings are set a little high for me but I plan to have it set up soon.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've looked this over from top to bottom and cannot find anything to complain about. It appears to be well built and has quality workmanship. Those who say not to buy a China made guitar appearantly never picked up one of these. I see no reason why it will not last for years and years. General Your general opinion of this product. I've had this guitar for a couple of weeks now and I really can't find a fault with it. The sound, playability, finish and build all are better than anticipated and worthy of a higher price tag. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Experiment with the settings and you will find that you can get most any sound you may desire. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is awesome. I have the Vintage Sunburst and it is beautiful.
