hoped it would be better

Your general opinion of this product.
When I first got the case I was thrilled - seemed sturdy and streamlined and the wheels are useful, tho the flap for the inside compartment was flimsy and obviously done cheaply...then today I was opening the case and one of the latches came completely off in my hand. I've got a phone call into SKB to see what their customer service is like...I was hoping this case could replace my much more expensive Calton case (which has survived 15 years!), but I'm not thrilled that the latch detached so easily.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How did the stain or paint job look?
How was the action out of the box?
