Great Looks, Great Sound, Great Price

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The quality is exactly what I would expect from a mid-level guitar, but more than I expected for the low price I paid.
How has it stood up over time?
I've only had it for a couple weeks, so time will tell.
Your general opinion of this product.
I am very satisfied with this guitar. I fell in love with the look of it the first moment I saw it and hoped that it sounded just as beautiful...I was not disappointed.
I like having the option to use either ¼" unbalanced or XLR balanced when plugging in. I can use the better quality XLR when it's available, or the standard ¼" jack when XLR isn't available.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
I love playing this guitar. It is lighter weight than some comparatively priced guitars. The neck & fret board are comfortable to play.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
This guitar has a rich, full tone whether it's played unplugged or plugged in.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is what drew me to the guitar, but it's also the only complaint I have so far. The tooled leather pickguard is gorgeous; however, on my particular guitar (factory refurb) the edges of the pickguard are peeling. If that's the reason I got this guitar at such a deep discount, then it's well worth the time & money to apply a little extra adhesive.
How was the action out of the box?
For my style of play right now, the action is perfect.
