Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very dependable. It stays in tune, has good intonation, a stable, dependable licensed floyd rose, 24 frets, and all the other traits you'd expect from a much more expensive guitar. I generally prefer neck-through (or ESP's set-through construction), yet I find this guitar's bolt-on neck joint to be quite comfortable. General Your general opinion of this product. If THIS is what a $300 ESP is like, that says a lot about the high quality you can expect from ESP guitars. I wouldn't hesitate to take this guitar on stage with me - it is an awesome guitar to play, with a stable, super-expressive tremolo bridge. Great guitars need not cost a fortune, and ESP proves this once again with the M-103FM. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I feel it has a fairly well-balanced tone, especially for stock pickups. It's got enough brightness to provide good definition and clarity, yet with enough mids and lows to sound full. The 5-way switch and HSS pickup configuration offer quite a bit of tonal flexibility. So overall, I'd say the stock pickups sound pretty decent. They're not super-driven, but with the right amp and effects settings, you can get an extremely heavy sound out of this guitar if you want to. Yet you can also get very nice clean sounds without it breaking up. They're stock pickups. Of course, you'll ALWAYS do better with upgrade pickups (DiMarzio, Duncan, EMG, Bareknuckle, etc). The single coil pickups are a bit noisy (which is common for all single coils). Even despite the noise from the single-coils, I am pretty impressed with the tone quality that the stock pickups provide. For the price, it's definitely more value for your money. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I think the see-through black finish looks great: slick, and classy. It's got quite a nice flamed maple finish - not what you'd expect on such an inexpensive guitar.
well built solid guitar

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Made well made better than the ibanez base models finish is nice with the see thru black body. The pick ups are ok if your just learning to play . put in a emg pickup and you have a good guitar . I play gigs with mine . its been droped several time solid build! General Your general opinion of this product. well made solid built . made in china but well made. floyed rose is very good . Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? pick up lacking power . but its a 300 dollar guitar. so they cut corners in the pick ups. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? see thru black nice paint good looking guitar with reverse head stock
