Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This product is built JUST like they used to build 'em back in the '50's! It has a solid feel construction-wise, and doesn't feel cheap.
Your general opinion of this product.
If I had to buy a guitar that was reliable, sturdy, and sounded good, THIS would be it!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Well, because I come from a blues based background, I'm always looking for the "sweet spot" when it comes to tone and pickups. These pickups are decent sounding, but I prefer more mellowness, more jazzy roundness, and not so much brittle-glass sound. But with a pickup swap-out, this could become the guitar that takes you to super-stardom.
How did the stain or paint job look?
In a word: Flawless.
