What is your overall opinion of this product?
I am very satisfied with this guitar. Looks great, plays great, everything works as intended at a very affordable price point!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Quality is very good. All electronics work well, everything is tight and the finish is excellent. It feels like it was assembled with care. Fret ends are finished well, tuners are nice and smooth...very nice.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Feels great! Not as heavy as a Gibson, and that's ok by me. Neck is smooth all the way up and down, and your hand doesn't get nicked by poorly cut fret ends. Controls all feel smooth and solid. Love the way the pickup select switch feels. Just nice and solid.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I'm not an expert on describing guitar sounds, but I feel that the tone on this is great. When I go to the individual pickups, it sounds bright and tight. With both pickups selected, it's very smooth and my prefered tone. I'm using Amplitube, so I can get just about any sound i want out of it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The paint job looks excellent. No buff marks. Very nice
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
For this price range, I just don't see a better option. You're getting a Les Paul for $250 from the only other company that can put Les Paul on the headstock! It's a no brainer!! Buy one of these today!
How was the action out of the box?
The action on mine felt a little high out of the box. I checked the relief and it was perfect, so I lowered the action to my comfort level. Had to make some minor intonation adjustments, and now I'm good! I'll go through it all again when I put some better strings on it. I like a lighter gauge personally.
