Quality 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. General 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. Tone 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. Finish 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'.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The sustainer is problematic. Had it repaired and problem repeated. I use guitar without it. Sounds better that way anyway. I paid $2500 a year ago. Feel sick about it, but guitar performs well despite sustainer problem. General Your general opinion of this product. Overpriced Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Sweet Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The PC1 is a well made guitar. Once it's setup, I see no reason that it can't be a guitar you can use for a lifetime. The materials and construction are of high quality. General Your general opinion of this product. Very good guitar. Well made, quality tonewoods, excellent fit. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The sustainer pickup is smooth and clean. Not a real distinct pickup, but very usable for clean sounds. Middle pickup is useful for those "in between" sounds. The bridge pickup is very useful. Works well with both clean and dirty amps. I'm running Soldano's and Jet City amps and the bridge pickup is very versatile. You can achieve lots of sounds by using the volume control on guitar. Not a extreme metal guitar, but could be if you sourced the right pickups. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish looked great. However, upon inspection there were 3 finish cracks. (2) were in the neck pocket, which is common for Jackson guitars. The other finish was on the face of the guitar at the top of neck pocket. For a $2500.00 guitar, it shouldn't be there. I contacted AMS and they rectified the issue. It wasnt their fault, but they took care of the issue. The back of the neck was also very rough. After a little 1200 grit sandpaper, it was smoothed out and very fast.
