Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very well made, and so far very dependable.
How has it stood up over time?
Had it 3 months, no problems at all.
Your general opinion of this product.
I considered myself a Gibson/PRS man until I picked this up. It is MIM, which made me a little leery at first, but the voices that come out of this thing will win you over!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's a Telecaster for sure- not a shred machine. I like the 9.5' radius neck. It's fast enough for me, and bends are really smooth.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
It can be bright and sparkly (not as twangy as I expected, though I'm sure it could do that- I don't play country) all the way to smoky and dark with the Duncan.
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's supposed to be 'Roadworn', and some parts of the finish look a little fake- which they are. It's hard to create an authentic Roadworn look I imagine. But when you play and hear this beauty- who cares really?
(By the way, the controls are reversed from this photo, with the pickup selector at the rear)
How was the action out of the box?
I bought it off the rack at the local shop- don't know if they had set it up or not, but it was perfect.
