Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Overall quality good...not like it like in the past. General Your general opinion of this product. I have a 1980 Explorer 2, made excellent, finish grade A. Little E string snapped off the nut...had to re-cut the nut. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It's the bomb! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Gibson did a poor job where the neck meets the body...looks like it was welded on.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar appears to be made just as well as all of my other Gibsons, which is why I keep coming back. Nothing beats their quality and tone. General Your general opinion of this product. Beautiful guitar, excellent craftsmanship, and tone that makes you wake up and take notice! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Powerful and punchy with a good amount of growl! The tonewoods are the best for that meaty rock n roll sound and match perfectly with these pickups. Some people think these pickups are too hot or are one-trick-ponies but I have them in my SG and Explorer besides this guitar and I love them. I can achieve any sound I want from blues to classic rock to full-on heavy metal with just a little adjustment from the volume control. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was flawless and the guitar is really a work of art!
Awesome guitar!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Gibson has restored it's quality control. Fantastic! General Your general opinion of this product. Stunned. I could not be happier. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is on the bright side, but very thick as well. It's also loud acoustically. An important trait of a well made guitar. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Absolutely flawless.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well, it's a Gibson. This isn't a cheap, corner-cut guitar. Lightweight and comfortable! Be very careful with this delicate beauty. Despite it's well built construction, any guitar is susceptible to damage...you wouldn't bang your new car up now, would you? Bottom line: You're paying for QUALITY! General Your general opinion of this product. I've always wanted a Gibson, but they were always out of my budget. Years passed, and now AMS has offered EZ Payment Plans for the budgeting musician. I understand why they're priced the way they are; the wood choice, the pickup construction, the attention to detail, and oh, and it's made here in America. Gibson took their time replicating a classic guitar and bringing it up to modern standards... Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Well...I'm still getting used to this. Hot? Yes...very hot. Hot but clean. Not as hot as an EMG, Seymour Duncan or DiMizario...but...well, Gibson pickups aren't toys either. I'm impressed how clear the notes came. Chunky metal to liquid lead. Need I say more? Oh, and they're very responsive...and your choice of pick and the attack you have with it makes a difference. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Well, I expected CLEAR white...like pearly white. Although, creamy white is really nice in person...can't complain as the finish is smooth and no signs of cheapness ;)
