Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very solid guitar. Feels good and can withstand some wear and tear
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a great guitar hands down, the only reason i gave it a 4 was because of the pickups and the new mid-scoop switch.(It basically cuts out the mids, which when playing live doesnt help if your in a large venue because the mid frequencies really cut through alot) Personally, I play alot of metal and these pickups just dont do it for me. It may be different for other players of other genres that dont need a high gain pickup, but its all really in personal preference.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Like I said before,Im not very keen on the tone because of the stock pickups. Im definitely going to switch them out for some EMG's. If you do the conversion, your going to have to switch out the battery as well. This guitar takes 2 AA batteries as opposed to one 9v battery which i was baffled by. The tone is alright for rhythm and does the trick, but for nice leads and good tones to cut through the mix, i would definitely reccomend some EMGs
How did the stain or paint job look?
Great! American Musical never disappoints
