Well worth the money

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have had it for one month but the over all feel is pretty comfy. The Matte finish looks pretty sweet but is not too flashy, and the bat inlays are a very nice touch. It is my first seven string so I can't really comment on playability cause there is a little more fret board to cover and the new string I have to learn how to play with is well.. THICK haha. It has the beefy tone I wanted, the emg's and the metal up your a$$ look. So for 600 bucks, ya can't complain.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I have only had for one month but so far the quality seems perfect. Appearance had no flaws, stays in tune and came set up to play. I play rock/metal so it fits right in as far as genres go, 7 strings, emg's, matte black.. C'mon now.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The pickups are hot, they definitely sound a little muddier than my 81, 85's on my hellraiser and the clean tones don't sound as good, which still sounds very good just not as..
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job is flawless, bat inlays are awesome. No complaints here.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
600 bucks is pretty fair compared to what else is out there but it is my first 7 stringer so I can't exactly say. All I know is I am very happy overall with the guitar and like I tell my wife, it's not 600 dollars, it's 3 easy payments of 200 LOL.
How was the action out of the box?
It was set up ready to play, strings were just right for me and stays in tune pretty well.
