I'm In Love !

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
For a chinese made guitar, this is just as good if not better, than some of Gibson's overpirced product.
Your general opinion of this product.
I'm 53 years old and in my 40 years of playing guitar, this has to be one of the best instruments I have ever come across. The stock Alnico open coil humbuckers sound great whether you're playing clean or on a Gain setting, plus the Grover tuners keep this baby in tune forever . The White Cross and the XI inlay on the neck are also cosmetically appealing to the eye as well.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Once the Humbuckers were adjusted to my specs, I got nothing but pure tone with plenty of sustain , which was pleasing to my middle aged ears !
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the Matte Black finish along with the XV inlay and the White Cross outline . Definately adds a touch of class to it.
