Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Extremely well made. Incredible sustain.Pickups that dramatically enhance your playing nuances.I'm hearing nuances in my style that I never knew were there with this guitar.Very comfortable for higher octave leads with no neck joint getting in the way.I fell in love with this guitar almost instantly when it arrived. When I started playing it I couldn't put it down for a couple hours.
How has it stood up over time?
Just recieved it but like all quality instruments, take care of it and it will take care of you for life. It's really that high quality.
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar quickly became my favorite after playing it. I have a really nice Schecter Hellraiser neck through body with active EMG's and it CANNOT compare to this Jackson in Tone,Sustain,Touch,Comfort and looks.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
To me it doesn't feel to heavy on the shoulder. The neck is fast, very fast.Ive been reaching new heights with this comfortably fast neck. For me the controls are right where I instinctively reach for without having to look. Volume and tone pots are not too loose so you don't have to worry about accidentally touching the knob and drastically changing your volume or tone.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Very bright and snappy. Harmonics are beautiful and easy to hit. And again sustain forever! I love it!
How did the stain or paint job look?
I have the snow white model and it really does look way better than the photo.
How was the action out of the box?
Amazing!!! For me it required no additional tweaking, and I like to play fast.Sustain is also amazing. And this guitar really sings.
