Lasted 6 months

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
There is not a lot of attention to detail on the exterior or interior, it was assembled quickly under pressure.
How has it stood up over time?
It failed after 6 months of lite duty, no sound. I replaced the tubes and checked the fuses, but it's dead even if the power light shines.
Your general opinion of this product.
I feel it's a loss, can't even sell it. The warranty is void if tubes are swapped out.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It overheats when hooked up the an amp modeller/effects box. I tried two of them for short time then the amp let out a small pop and died.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The sound is pretty harsh, and that's the reason why I tried it out with effects box. I never was able to get it into overdrive as is.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The surface looks like rubber coating on some gunny sack material.
How was the action out of the box?
I like the simple control plate, no bells or whistles. Everything should be that way.
