Mine seems very well made. Quality tuners, custom pickups, and flawless finish. The neck is tinted nicely and finished well. I think the nut could have been finished/sanded a bit to help slight tuning issues, but that's standard setup stuff.
It's new, but will last
Your general opinion of this product.
I've never had or played a jag. I play an American strat and a custom Fano with p90s, so this is truly new territory to me. I wanted something different with pristine cleans...some jangle...and subtlety. That's exactly what this is. It took a big adjustment in my playing, as you will not be happy playing this for riff rock or blues... However, as I got to know it, I've really grown to love it.
It's light and the body is incredibly comfortable. The strat front body contour johnny marr gave it makes a nice difference. The smaller scale was new to me, and grew on me quickly. The trem is awesome, and I love how the arm stays where you place it.
This is pretty bright. When you have the choke switches engaged, there is a bit of a volume cut, and little low end. The series "humbucker" position is not a hot humbucker tone. That said, as I mentioned, as I get to know this guitar, I really like it. The tones are new to me, which is awesome. You can get jangly high cleans, warmer fuller tones where 6 string chords sound beautiful. This guitar loves reverb and modulation effects because it is so clear. It has inspired my playing in new ways. Trem sounds great.
Gorgeous. I have the KO. beautiful.
Pretty good. Guitars from factories always benefit from a pro setup.
