Exceeded my expectations
By: Nick S. from Reno, Nevada, USA
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar was exactly what I'd hoped it would be. I have always been weary of ordering instruments online because I like to play and feel what I'm buying before I buy; however, when this guitar arrived at my door I was completely surprised at how spot on it was to its description. I am a very happy customer. I've been re-inspired to play more often, like everyday.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This guitar seems very sturdy. I've only owned it for a week, so dependability will have to be seen.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This guitar feels light enough to carry around with a strap, although it's solid enough to not feel like it's going to fall apart on you. The neck/action is great. I worried that I'd have to adjust it, but I didn't. All it required was a little tuning, which was very easy thanks to the on-board tuner.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is bright and clean. I don't have an amp, so I don't know about the pickup.
How was the action out of the box?
Action was perfect. I don't like the action too high. It is nice and close to the fret board, but not so close that it buzzes. It's perfect for me.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The paint looks clean and sparkly. I didn't see from the picture on the website, but the black paint actually has sparkles in it. I'm not a fan of sparkles, but this actually looks nice. I'm still completely happy.
How has it stood up over time?
It is still perfect. Even after this entire week I've owned it ;-). Like I said before though, it seems light weight, but solid. I'm not worried about it falling apart on me.
