Hellraiser lives up to it's name

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This guitar is built very well. The finish is flawless. My only complaint is the the frets, where they meet the neck on the top and bottom, have sharp edges that should be felt.
Your general opinion of this product.
Great guitar all around. Sound, playability, looks... it's killer
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone is very subjective. Some people like Fender single coil sounds, some people like Gibson humbucking sounds. With this guitar, you get the best of both worlds. The EMG setup and coil splitting can provide such a wide range of sounds that if you can't get the tone you want, you may be tone deaf.
How did the stain or paint job look?
ABSOLUTELY KILLER. I was worried about the grey pearl outline (I got the black one), but after seeing it in person, I am blown away.
