Your general opinion of this product.
outstanding guitar very warm tone without amp, all i can say is this thing is off the chain great sound through PA or guitar amp...Ibanez acoustic guitars have always been a staple in my acoustic guitar gear.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
built incredibly well you would think its a very expensive upper end guitar, finish is beautiful...dependable only had it for a month but I see no reason for it to fail anytime soon.
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 plays fast sweet and stays in tune has a remarkable tone, electronics are easily accessible on the fly and work great,knobs have a solid feel.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
tone with out amp is crisp and bright, with amp...anything you want,pickups are hot, but yet reveal a full textured sound with pristine clarity
How was the action out of the box?
Action is outstanding,I play lead and this thing rips right out of the box.
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
only had it for a month, but my Ibanez AW300 which i installed a martin gold thinline pickup in has been with me since 1995 and is still my baby i have put her up against Taylor, Martin Gibson, Gretch, and wouldn't trade for it.plays as great today as when i first got it in 95 so i have the same expectation of the ew35spe.
