Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's made really solid. The back is beautiful. Nicely crafted instrument.
How has it stood up over time?
Time will tell. I've only had it about a week, but so far so good. I've already played 3 shows with it and it sounds and plays great right out of the box new.
Your general opinion of this product.
I love it. I played a friends tan16 and fell in love with Takamine guitars. Not having the money for the tan16, the eg363sc is the way to go. I'll eventually upgrade the saddle and nut to bone, but it's a great sounding guitar out of the box.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck is really fast, but with a little meat to it. It feels wonderful. I can't wait to lower the action past 10 and this guitar is going to be a true monster. It makes you want to take a couple extra bars while soloing for sure. The controls are relatively easy to adjust while playing. Use a screeching halt sound hole plug and crank the gain for unreal tone!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The guitar has a bright yet smooth tone through the pa. A little thin, but if you can easily adjust the pa to help thickin it up.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The guitar is gorgeous. Pictures on the internet did it no justice. I've had alot of compliments already and I've only had it a week. The guitar is perfect. Not a flaw on the body.
How was the action out of the box?
Action is perfect up to 9/10th frett. When I upgrade to bone I'll lower the action for soloing a little easier. The action past 10 isn't terrible by no means, it just could stand to be lowered a little.
