What is your overall opinion of this product?
Hands down, the best guitar I have ever owned!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
First class all the way. So well built. So well finished. And this baby will play anything!
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This thing feels solid but not like an overly heavy Les Paul. It's the perfect weight. The neck is sick! I am easily playing licks I struggled with on my Ibanez S570. The neck is lightning fast and so smooth it feels like butter. The locking trem does what you'd expect...keeps the guitar in tune through relentless dive bombs.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Really? This baby has the EMG 81/89 active pickup combo. Nuff said. These things will play anything. And if you play metal, you are in for a treat. The EMG combo has unbelievable bite when needed. The tone is amazing on my solos now! Rhythm is full and warm. Honestly, this guitar makes me sound better than I really am :)
How did the stain or paint job look?
Way better than expected. This thing is BEAUTIFUL! The satin finish is striking. The binding is exquisite. The black chrome hardware is killer. The fretboard is insane with its inlays. I can not express how incredible this guitar is.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Are you kidding? This guitar is worth twice what I paid. It may be blasphemy to say this but I prefer it to my PRS Custom 22 (that cost me twice as much)! Plus - FREE Shipping and NO TAX? C'mon son!
How was the action out of the box?
Minor adjustments needed but nothing to be worried about. Within 15 minutes I was hooked up and pissing off the neighbors!
