General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar sounds great! Waited my whole life to own a Gibson and Now! I've got the best one out there! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is superb! I did have to send the first one delivered back because the pick up hardware came loose during shipping. After I sent it back for a return. I was told another guitar would be shipped in its place. Well, if I didn't call ten days later to remind customer service, I wouldn't be writing this review. They dropped the ball. So. Beware. I have a top quality product for a fair price. People however can make mistakes. So, follow through. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Playability is incredible! It just feels like home when I pick this guitar up. I've played for three hours straight and no blisters. The neck is super easy to fret and very easy to handle. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is what makes me fall in love with this again and again. Even when it is played through my Vox amp.. I feel like a rock star! Action How was the action out of the box? The action was very nice. ... Right out of the box. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? This finish is a eye catcher for sure! People always say " that is a beautiful guitar"!! And you know what? They are right!! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had it for two weeks now. I'm sure I will have it a lifetime. It is a top notch high quality instrument.
Well built, good sound, nice finish

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?
