Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Top quality maple and koa used, I'm a carpenter so I appreicate the love of wood.
One comment would be the gold plated volume control knob is prone to wearing out quickly.
When I first got my PC1 I took all the strings off to clean it and it through everything out of alignment so I took it to a guitar shop who set it up and I never did that again. Now I take one string off at a time, tune it then go on to the next one.
Your general opinion of this product.
It's like an Estwing hammer, meant to be used like a craftsmans tool and it will live forever!!
I just need to learn how to play.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Sounds great through my tutor's amp but mine is limiting the guitar's full potential. Still sounds awesome though.
I use a Pandora PX3, Dunlop crybaby and Boss Delay pedal plugged into a Yamaha Budokan practice amp.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The maple quilted neck is aging slowly with a golden glow.
The frets are solid no wear no issues.
My fingernails have slightly scratched the fretboard but that's all. It has the koa body the varnish/laquer is thick & perfect. I have a tiny 5mm mark near the back end I made from the strap buckle but this beauty stills looks brand new. I may get the volume knob re-gold plated but not sure at the mo'.
