Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
all my les pauls have never failed. some issues with tuning on some, but not this one, keeps perfect tune, as it should, with locking trem. dependable, you bet. the only thing that could detract from it's dependability would be for me to damage it. (or someone else!)(and they better not, and i better not!)
Your general opinion of this product.
AMS you rock for making this possible!!
Overall, but only for the price, this would be a straight 100% approval rate. I still gave it a max review because putting a lower rating just because of price isn't really fair to the guitar. after all the guitar doesn't price itself!
The guitar arrived in PERFECT CONDITION. like i was standing at the end of the painting booth-after the laquer had dried, someone just handed it to me. The SMELL of the guitar is an intoxicant. like new car leather, it's THAT good! (probably toxic, but good anyway!)
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
sustains forever. also very resonant. the whole guitar comes together to vibrate in the perfect way, much like an acoustic. if it didn't do this, like my old thick, heavy, les pauls, i'd be concerned. remember, this ISN'T your traditional les paul. For those who have pauls, and those in need of something more contemporary, and a trem are, then, in my opinion, it's great, bright, fast and wonderful. wunderbar for the germans.
How did the stain or paint job look?
perfect in every way. I got the gun metal grey for something different. i have plenty of sunbursts with plenty of fine AA all the way to AAAAA tops. So, i was looking for something different. seems that the sunburst is never available anyway in this model. i'd recommend this one to anyone. it's really nice. hard to describe, but definitely will be a collector in the future.
