Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I'd give this guitar a big thumbs up for build quality! Not one single issue, and I'm not necessarily easy on guitars. They get played hard and often!
How has it stood up over time?
I've had it for 2 years and it's help up like a champ!
Your general opinion of this product.
I've had it for 2 years and I absolutely love it. from Bluegrass to Praise and Worship tunes it can cover all of the bases without having to sell a kidney to afford it! An absolute workhorse of a guitar!~
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Plays great. The lower profile neck is a really nice feature.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
PURE MARTIN! Tone is on par with the high dollar Martins. It sounds the way a Martin should. Thick smooth and LOUD! These babys are cannons.
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's a satin finish, so there isn't much to talk about.
How was the action out of the box?
The action was perfect right out of the box. I didn't have to adjust the neck, bridge or anything else. I just tuned it up and she's been stable ever since!
