Good deal for a starter acoustic.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Quality is decent, the neck feel solid, it stays in tune pretty good. Mine had a few small imperfections in the finish, but not that bad really. The frets were horrible at first however.
Your general opinion of this product.
I like this guitar, but I have a couple gripes with it.
#1 - the frets were not really all that smooth, they made alot of noise when bending or sliding from fret to fret. I ended up taking all the strings off, taping off the frets, and sanding them til they were smooth, this fixed the fret issue. But shouldn't really have been a problem in the first place. #2 as I stated already, there were some blemishes in the finish of mine. I bought it brand new, not a scratch and dent. All in all for the price, it's still a good deal. But for those with little or no experience I imagine would frustrate them.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I would say it is bright sounding, I thought it would have more bass seeing that the guitar is a fatter concert model. But the bass response is a little limp. I improved the bass a little by installing a Planet waves O-Port.
How did the stain or paint job look?
For the most part the finish looks fine, but had a few small imperfections here and there.
