Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Looks like it should cost more. It should be dependable with the quality components used.
How has it stood up over time?
Just got it but like anything, take care of it and it should last.
Your general opinion of this product.
Meat and potatoes with gravy. I'm not into tons os switches and knobs. A volume and a toggle is all I need. The whammy on this model is the gravy. Very simple and ready to OWN!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very comfy neck and body. Not sure if I like the black satin neck finish yet. Frets feel great and my only issue and it's a personal thing is the placement of the volume knob. I wish they would move it away about 1/2 more. No big deal.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I'm on the fence as I have never been a fan of EMG's. I will give it a chance, if not, to the trash with all the rest of them and drop in some passive pups.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the look. My current main guitar is an MTM and they look very similar, black with white binding. Very METAL!
How was the action out of the box?
Action is irrelevant in my opinion since we all like different things.
