Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Considering that this is Chinese made, it's actually not that bad. It did need a setup and intonation check though.
Your general opinion of this product.
For the price, I don't think you'll find a better sounding guitar which is more suited for Metal and Hard Rock. This will definately blow away any Ibanez or Epiphone model that's in the same price range.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The stock ESP LH-100 Humbuckers are IMO, a bit muddy , so I'm replacing them with some Seymour Duncan Detonators which should be in this week, along with a new set of tuners as well.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Mine is in Black which was the only color that was available. Looks nice but tands to get smudgy very easily. I might be considering getting a Guitar Skin for it.
