General Your general opinion of this product. Everything is nice just wish it had a built in tuner. Other than that looks incredible, sounds good, feels good, very happy with the SJ-200. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This product is made very well. Durable, nice finish, the wave like pattern in the wood makes it over the top. Only had it for a week now, so not much play time yet but so far very nice to play. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The guitar feels good I thought with the different type of body I'm used to it would be different trying to play but it feels normal. The controls are a bit different for me being inside the lip of the sound hole but I'm not reaching for them while playing. Just wish there was a built in tuner. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is perfect. First I thought they were a little high but now that I played it more they seem right. Action How was the action out of the box? Out of the box it needed a quick tune which was no big deal. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The stain is awesome no flaws and I like the wave pattern in the wood, first time I seen it, that makes it more over the top type guitar. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Over a week since I had it, it has been holding up very well.

General Your general opinion of this product. Awesome, awesome Guitar! I put it through the ropes and she performed, sounded and played beautifully. Meticulous craftsmanship!! Stunning finish. Can do fingerstyle or pick - it's all good (seriously). Well worth the cost if you can afford it. And, AMS really helped out; answering questions while driving them crazy - but they stayed cool and made it happen for me. Thanks AMS!! I highly recommend them, highly! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Absolutely - it's the king of the Gibson's. And everyone knows their quality. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Everything is good...a little different where the electronics are located, but I can see where they're coming from with this set up. Shouldn't be a problem at all. Actually, it's kind of cool! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Can go sweet & mellow such as fingerpicking or total power and volume with the pick; especially if you dig in a bit! Blues, Country, Rock, you name it and it'll take you there. Action How was the action out of the box? Calibrated right out of the box (seriously) it shows its set-up measurements. No need for work in this department. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looks flawless! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Hey, it's a high end Gibson - do I need to say more?

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Again, this is a high quality guitar. I have no complaints. This guitar will outlive me. Hopefully I can pass it on to someone that will enjoy it once I'm gone. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I have only had it for less than a month, but it is definitely well made. General Your general opinion of this product. I finally decided/could afford a nice piece of equipment. I took a chance buying this online, but this guitar is well made and felt sooo good in my hands. You can tell it was made with a lot of TLC. I highly recommend this guitar for anyone looking for the perfect guitar! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? What can I say! This is a well balanced fine piece of equipment. The next felt perfect from the first time I put my hands on it. I was concerned since I never played a jumbo body, but man does it feel good. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Like I stated before, the tone is perfect from highs to lows. The pick-ups are real nice also. What I really like about the pickups is they are mounted just inside the sound hole so the only cutting they had to do on the body was for the jack. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? This is definitely a beautiful guitar. There is nothing to complain about here. Action How was the action out of the box? the action feels really good. I will get it set up once it acclimates to my state. It was shipped from back east and I am out west so I'm sure it will need a set up once it acclimates.
