Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Mahogany body, rosewood neck,and the same pickups as a Les Paul Supreme.
How has it stood up over time?
just got it cant tell
Your general opinion of this product.
for the price this is great. better than some of my more expensive imports
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
the neck is slim for a 50s style. The action sucked from the factory but after setting it up the way I like it it is great.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Pickups are HOT!. you have to crank way down on the volume to clean up the sound, but that could just be the pot. way heavyier than the pearly gates in my fender.
How did the stain or paint job look?
the finish is nice you can see through the rubbed white to the wood grain. with the black hardware as a contrast it looks cool.
How was the action out of the box?
ok but I like my strings low. I had to set it up. Intonation is perfect though. no tweeking needed there.
