Overall this is a sweet guitar. the size of the neck and fretboard is great for soloing and even rythem. even down at the 20-22nd frets you have a good ammount of room. much more than a Les Paul, not as much as a SG/V. The only downsides to this guitar is that 1. its very bulky. if you buy the hardshall case with it the things a boat. Im not even joking ive had to do 3-point turns with the thing to turn around before. You have to sit a certain way with it too. im not complaining this is just something you should know before you buy it. 2. the pickups are ok. Their pretty ok for stock pickups but i would replace them in time. maybe with EMGs or Dimarzios. The bridge is a little weak sounding in my opinion. not alot of drive to it. But a 81 ot a super distortion would fix that nicely. other than that though its a great guitar. mine is gloss black and i love how on this dean they painted the whole neck and the back of the headstock. its a sweet looking guitar. o and one more thing. DONT GET THIS IF YOU DONT ALREADY HAVE A GOOD HARDTAIL/TREMOLO GUITAR. the floyd is great but unless you get a tremblocker say good bye to alternate tunings. trust me if you play metal (which you most likely do with this guitar) you will want to drop tune eventually if you dont already. So make sure you have a good Les Paul, SG, Strat, whatever before you get the floyd.
Off the rack, this guitar is quite well worth the asking price. Plays fast & easy, sounds great, feels very comfortable even though the materials would seem to make it uncomfortably heavy. I bought mine in satin black, then had one of our band sponsors airbrush some sick custom art for me, then had EMG 81/85 installed along with an 18v mod. War is what it's made for. Without having the high quality stock guitar to start with, it would be nice to look at while hanging on the studio wall because I wouldn't play it...simple as that. I have put this guitar through extreme temperature changes, doused it in stage blood, and maybe next I will chop some wood with it. I also own an American Washburn Dime with the exact same setup that cost me a lot more than I have into this Dean & there may be a few subtle differences, but very few players could tell. I do recommend getting a professional setup done 1st thing, as I always do with any new guitar, then spend some time finding out what this thing is capable of..
this will be your favorite guitar.looks more beautifull in person.the floyde had to go.Would not stay tuned for nothing.Just stuffed some carefully measured oak blocks in back and it is awsome.The sustain is unbelievable.notes play for ever.I stuffed some zakk emgs i had and its all over. Plays and sounds better then my buddys vintage gibson explorer and flying v.
Really good guitar and greeat deal for it just throw some bill lawerence L-500XL and this is much better then the FBD dean with the fruity stickers. This guitar is for anyone who likes blues, rock, jazz , and metal to death,melodic metal. 4 out of 5 really good guitar.
This guitar is exactaly what i thought it would be. the distortion is crisp and clean, its heavy sound is great, and its very easy to pick up and play... you can get great squeels, and loud harmonics, its also very smooth, and it just looks great... THE BEST GUITAR I'LL EVER HAVE!!!
I just got the dean 79' ML in trans-braziliaburst for christmas and it's great! The finish is spectacular and it fits in your hand amazingly. I am new to the floyd rose system and was having some problems at first but once i broke it in and began to understand how it works, i havnt had any trouble. I can now squeel and dive-bomb just like dime and stay perfectly in tune. The bridge pickup, like most have said, is nothing too fancy but i plan on changing it to a dimebucker to make it perfect. excellent, excellent guitar!
I don't know alot about Dean guitars,but I do know that their obtions in color is very limited.I mean,don't get me wrong this Dean model is very extraordinary but they just don't have enough obtions in color.If they did than I would almost definetly would buy one.That's why I like Gibsons alot,because they have more obtions in color.
This guitar is my first dean and i love it. It came with a decent floyd rose,i changed the bridge pickup to a dimebucker, i changed the knobs to black ones, i changed toggle switch caps to black,and thinking about to switch the floyd to an original blck double locking one. I don't its great for the price though get your dean wings today!
this is my second dean mL my first was a mL xt which is no longer made it had the floyd rose with a bolt on neck this model however takes it to another level with the set neck body and neck binding and a floyd rose its hard to beat however, i did change the bridge pickup to a dimebucker for a meaner metal tone but you can use the stock pickups also they are good for blues,rock and metal the neck pickup in this guitar is great as is. it is not to muddy and has great tone if you want a great guitar with a set neck and well made this is a great buy and it won`t break the bank
This guitar is just phenomenal. I was guitar hunting for a very long time to find that perfect guitar. I wanted to step up and get a guitar that I wouldn't need to replace. I was doubtful, but when I picked this guitar up and played it, I was in awe. I have tried countless other guitars, and I just fell in love with this guitar the moment I played it. It killed other guitars priced much higher than it in sound, feel, even the way it looks. This guitar has gained a permanent place in my collection.
