Your general opinion of this product.
Just received this axe yesterday. Fit and finish are flawless with full binding on the neck and body makes the action very smooth. I don't think I'll need to do any set up work on it. The resonator cone is loud unplugged but when you plug it in it really rings. This is a beautiful guitar for not a whole lot of money. I am very impressed.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Fit and finish out of the box is flawless. Absolutely beautiful. Dependable? Will wait and see.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very smooth, neck is good and straight and the controls are very accessible. I like the volume and tone controls for the Telly pickup. The Fishman power chip has no tone control but that's okay with me. I just adjust it with my acoustic amp.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Very balance. The treble doesn't overload the mids and the bass is blended as well.
How was the action out of the box?
Tuned it up and ripped it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Astounding. Could not be more pleased.
How has it stood up over time?
Will wait and see.
