General What is your overall opinion of this product? This guitar is really great axe. Comes with EMG 81 in bridge position , which I changed for Seymour Duncan "Blackout". I play hard rock , heavy metal and blues and You can have all of that with this guitar. For me Seymour's " Blackout" doing the job but EMG was not bad. Depend what You like. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality is more than best. If I could I would give 6 stars. Any details are perfect .When I remove pick guard to exchange pickup I was in shock. All wires connected with connectors , looks so perfect I professional. Guitar comes factory sealed and when I removed it from case was in perfect tune. I change strings for number 10 , adjusted just springs from Floyd Rose and....keep in tune no matter how heavy I use Floyd Rose . Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Most feeling comes about neck. You can feel each part of neck playing fast. It become a part of Your hand .Seriously is the best neck I ever played . Shape of body making easy to set Your right hand and controls knobs are easy accessible with any finger. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? With combination of alder body , rosewood and Seymour Duncan "Blackout" active pickup this guitar is pure heavy metal axe . When You play You can feel vibration coming from strings thru body and neck. Is hard to describe but it sound so full .Low tones are clear and.....actually it sounds so good. Clean and heavy Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks like $ 2,000,000.00 .Better than paint on Lamborghini Aventador. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Yes , I have been expecting less. Is like You know....You expecting to find silver and You got gold instead . Playability How was the action out of the box? As I mentioned before . Right from the box guitar was in perfect tune. I changed strings from 0.9 to 0.10 , adjust springs and was ready to go. Stay in tune even after 1 hour of heavy playing
