Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Everything on this guitar was flawless. From the finish to the hardware it looked great and felt great.
Your general opinion of this product.
I bought this as my second guitar and I was a bit reluctant to buy it because I am not a fan of strat style bodies, but I did want a guitar with a floyd rose and active pick ups so this guitar, for the price, does the trick.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Considering that this guitar does have active pickups, and active pickups are generally associated with heavier styles of music the tone is exactly what I wanted. One downside is that normally on a guitar with passive pickups tweaking the volume levels on the guitar could dial in different levels of crunch, with active pickups you don't get those little nuances.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The paint was almost excellent out of the box. The only flaw would be on the back, the cover for the floyd springs had some belt rash on it. Nothing major.
