Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar is simply fantastic overall. I was initially somewhat apprehensive about getting a guitar that is priced as an intermediate instrument. I must say without hesitation that I am VERY well-pleased. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, the instrument is great and will suffice for all my applications. I am truly taken aback by the overall quality of this guitar. I am very happy and excited to have it! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I play a wide and eclectic variety of styles, from jazz to metal to classical. I personally enjoy the many tones of the instrument. The basswood body and bolt-on maple neck with rosewood board offer good and nice clarity in conjunction with the pickups. I have to agree with other reviewers in that, while on a distortion setting, the B and F# strings tend to become ever so slightly dull and buried. Yet, the clean tones are astoundingly good in quality. I know this will work perfectly for jazz. The cleans are additionally reminiscent of the great cleans from Billy Corgan, Marty Friedman (think of his "Scenes" solo album 1992), and even George Benson and Paul Jackson Jr. I think the pickup output is more than sufficient for any application. For reference, I play a Mesa Boogie Studio Caliber DC-2 amplifier. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The matte walnut satin finish is clean and wonderful without any error. I love it. The black binding is a great touch and makes the instrument look even more expensive than it is. The frets are perfectly finished and polished.
Best guitar ever!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Built like an ox General Your general opinion of this product. Great guitar but weak, muddy pickups, especially on the fat string. I installed a Dimarzio 8 string bridge pickup and what a difference!! Soon I will do the neck. I play the shnitzle outta this thing( a la Cannibal Corpse, Behemeth style) and it keeps in tune very well. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Flabby, muddy, blurry bridge pick up. neck pick up is tolerable. Lose them both and upgrade, I chose Dimarzio's. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Top notch.
