Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Looks very nice, different (isn't that what we guitar players want?) I have 2 complaints: battery installed at the factory was corroded (installed 5/12) and the end pin/jack connection was loose. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Had it a couple of weeks and I still really like it. General Your general opinion of this product. This is a fantastic guitar for the price. It has a thinner sound acoustically than my Martin but I really bought for the electric option that really works well. I used it an all electric jam and this guitar really held it's own. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Light, decent feel. The volume adn tone switches are small and difficult to find in a hurry. Body feedback was non-existent -that's nice. I did find a buzz at the 5th and 6th fret which I find to be very typical for guitars off the rack. I had no problem jamming in many venues of music with this guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pick ups in my Twin sound just fine. Tuner is accurate and the sound was as smooth as I wanted. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Overall finish was nice. One spot on the front on the cut out was a little of a bubble but not really noticable. Of course once I saw it, I see it all the time. Action How was the action out of the box? Action out of the box is fine. Typical buzzing at the 5-7 frets. The strings on the guitar were decent.
