This guitar play, sounds, and looks way more expensive than it actually is. The set-up was on the money right out of the box and the build quality is perfect, I'm kinda shocked since it came from overseas. This is the first non American built guitar I have ever bought and it really makes me wonder if they are all this good. The fit and finish is every bit as nice as my Les Paul standard that cost 4x as much.
The dean branded pickups sound really good. The clean is very clean and the dirt is what you would expect from a Dean.
Grover tuners out if the box was a nice touch.
Ease of Use
The set up was great out of the box so that is awesome. The neck profile is slim and comfortable, kinda like my telecaster.
It looks to be very well made. No blemishes in the finish, binding is smooth all the way around.
Easily worth twice the price.
Manufacturer Support
I have not had to use them but if I do I'll just go there being as how Dean is headquartered right up the road from me.
The Wow Factor
It's a ml with the old styling so that got me hooked. You don't see many in a burst with a hardtail.
