Wow . . . I am impressed

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The quality of this item far exceeded my expectations.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have to give a little background here. I am Gibson guy. I am a Les Paul guy. I buy several guitars a year and generally go to Gibson. When the Sprng Break Sale hit, I figured why not try a few Fenders even though I generally loathe them. This guitar has blown me away. It is a tone machine. It is a true player. Only let down is the single coil, but even that is not too much of a let down and an easy upgrade. For the price of $399 this is the best guitar I have ever purchased for under $1000 and beats many of the ones over $1000. The stock humbuckers are simply perfect. The bridge screams with brilliant sustain. The neck is meaty and dark with impressive reaction to the tone knob. My only regret is that I did not buy the HH version of this guitar in blue and another blackie with the Floyd Rose while they are on sale. I have not been able to put this guitar down.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone is perfect from the Humbuckers. A little bit of everything. The single coil is a little weak and seems to lose its voice.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Its Black on Black with Chrome. What more could you want.
