The 1st guitar to "speak" to me while lifting it out of the case.

Your general opinion of this product.
This Stratocaster goes toe to toe (in it's own way) with my Les Paul(s) while gigging. I go from clean, to bttw style wise, and this guitar does it. Light, comfortable, smooooth.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very fine in every way.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Many nice usable tones.
How was the action out of the box?
Didn't change a thing except the intonation. I was told that it is set up to John Mayer's specs, but the intonation was off. Should it be?
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
Can't see any failures, ever. Will probably die with it, along with my '76 Custom.
