General What is your overall opinion of this product? Mine was a "scratch n dent", likely a return. The action was unacceptably high. Saddle sanding resulted in the strings breaking over the cutouts on the bridge before they broke over the saddle. The neck had been adjusted dead flat. I ground the bridge (angled slot at each string) to allow the strings to break only across the saddle. I was then able to shorten the saddle (by .085) enough to get a nice action height with no double break and had room left for more. The strings originally hit the bridge cutout with less than .040 off the saddle. Design? The neck angle to the bridge was not all that bad. Other than that, I was impressed with the tone and remaining workmanship. It really does resist feedback. Great range of tone plugged in from pillowy to clean, bright and acoustic to gnarly. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality for this price range was good. Disappointed about the bridge design or original neck angle. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Anti feedback soundhole design. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? A bit small but ok. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? All the above. The active electronics have great range of tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Good Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Competitive Playability How was the action out of the box? See comments above.
