Wow, I really like this guitar

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Yes, there was a slight issue with the wiring. I took off the back panel and everything was compressed or squished together and it was creating a short. I just moved the wires into a bit more space and problem was solved.
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar looks amazing, it's a show stopper - the blue and cream are great together. But more importantly the Burstbucker 1 pickups creat a very unique dirty sound when playing through some distortion, but classic clean sound when clean. Also, since it's SG, it's lightweight and the added “Lyre” vibrato and 24 frets gives me additional options.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I would say the pickups are just about perfect. I play both clean and distored and the sound works well for both, although there is a definately distinctive sound when slightly dirty that I can't get out of my les pauls that I own.
How did the stain or paint job look?
This is one of the reaons I picked this up. Like I said at top, it's a show stopper, everyone wants to check it out.
