Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This guitar is made very well. The tuners are very smooth and the bridge is top notch with easy adjutments.
Your general opinion of this product.
I got the flat black model. The finish on it is flawless and looks great, especially the antique looking creme binding. The DD pickups have the responsiveness and sound of SD Blackouts. I just got rid of a guitar with EMG 81/85 right befor I got this one, and imho to me it sounds a whole lot better.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The pups on this thing can handle anything you want to throw at them. I play anything from very dark heavy metal to blues. Very versatile for a set of active pups.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Flat black finish, AWESOME! I'm not really into high gloss finishes, so this thing looks amazing to me, opinions vary. Has a really nice kind of antique creme-ish binding.
