SWEET TONES WITHOUT STICKER SHOCK!!!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very well made.Really nice fit and finish with nice attention to detail. Finish is as durable as it is beautiful.The pics don't do it justice!Wouldn't hesitate to take it and play it anywhere at any time.My friend got his hands on it to "help me out" and tune it up for me.I had no idea he was guitarded when I agreed to let him "help me".So he puts an electronic tuner on the head and starts turning keys.He brings it to me about a half an hour later and says "Here you go.All tuned and ready to go.I broke a couple of strings while I was tuning it and and had to replace them.That's why it took me so long.Sorry man." I just said "That's OK.Happens to us all sometimes." He handed me my guitar and I instantly knew something was very wrong because the strings were waaay too tight!!!Then I noticed the bottom of the bridge is raised up off the body!!! My "helper" had apparently tuned it to the correct notes,problem was he was 2 octaves high!Some guitars would b dun.A bit o glue my Ibnz is gr8!
Your general opinion of this product.
Best acoustic available in AND somewhat above it's price range. Also a very attractive guitar that looks much more expensive than it is. Plays wonderfully right out of the box! At least mine did. A lot of "LUCK OF THE DRAW" involved when buying low to mid priced, imported guitars online. Thats just the way it is. Your odds improve greatly though when you are getting an Ibanez. Just another fact. Overall opinion: SUPERB INSTRUMENT FOR THE $$$. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Anything and everything you want it to be.
How did the stain or paint job look?
You can shave in it!!! The shine is really that nice and deep looking!! I've got several years of laying custom paint on cars under my belt so I know a really nice finish when I see one. This guitar is as slick as they get when it comes to glossy finishes. Plus it's much more durable than most. You won't be disappointed with it. I promise!!
