Ibanez Hot Drive with a Cool Lady

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I have not owned this product for a long time so, while I do not know for sure, it certainly seems well made. The plug is the one area that may not endure. When I used one of my best chords instead of the one that came with the product, the fit was extremely tight.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
By far I consider the tone variation to be the best feature. I also like the light weight. American Musicals price is also the best price. Thanx!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
When I played live, either jamming or rehearsing, I loved what I heard. However I did not use this bass for recording because the treble boost is a bit noisy for my ears.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The rear of the bass had a few spots that could have been stained more evenly.
