It is pretty good so far..

Your general opinion of this product.
I really was interested in this product.. I play acoustic guitar solo and in a duo.. I usually play in standard tuning. Sometimes, I get requests for songs done in open tunings or tuned down a half step and This is where I thought this would come in handy.. The installation was simple and straight foward. Took me less than fifteen minutes.. I put them on my Taylor 110e. Did a "String up" to restring it and it worked very well.. DId my first test and viola.. It took about 20 seconds but it worked very well.. Tried tuning down a half step.. Less than 20 seconds..
Of course, when I put my capo on, auto tuning it is difficult without a setting for the capo on each fret that I play on.. I may just program them in though..
Overall, I really like them!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
They seem to be well made. Although, the screw on string holders will be another little thing to keep track of and I can see myself dropping one on a dim stage floor and never finding it..
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
operation is easy.. But i do keep the manual on my phone to look up things because button presses in series are how you get to different menus and functions..
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
We shall see.. Again.. the little screw on tops worry me.. I wish they could have done something like the Sperzel Locking tuners.. It would have been better for me..
