General Your general opinion of this product. This is a fantastic guitar! I love the sound and the look. The action is fantastic right from the factory. Did have string buzz on the low E upon arrival, had to adjust slightly for initial setup, but love love love the result! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems to be very well built, have only owned about a month so not sure about dependability yet. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very light, slim body, with full sound! The action is fantastic, plays like butter! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright and snappy sound but can easily be adjusted with built in eq if you prefer a deeper/darker tone as I do. Action How was the action out of the box? Fantastic, but did need to adjust neck slightly for initial setup to eliminate string buzz on the low E. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Have only owned the instrument for a short time. But have had ovations in the past, and have held up great!
