Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Another great Vai product.
How has it stood up over time?
Not sure yet, but for the price it better last a lifetime!
Your general opinion of this product.
Beautiful guitar, and the colors are very nice. It produce anything for warm cleans to screaming leads. This is a very versatile instrument.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The feel it great now that the guitar is set up properly. I find it hard to put it down, much to the dismay of my wife!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Snappy, fat, thick, ballsy, meaty..you got it here
How did the stain or paint job look?
superb, no flaws or scratches. Every guitar produced has a slightly different pattern and is unique
How was the action out of the box?
The setup out of the box was horrible! You would think that a $3,000 guitar with Steve Vai's name on it would actually be setup for playability. I have to spend an extra $100 to have it setup correctly...now it is perfect!
