I purchased this guitar about 8 months ago, but it is not my primary instrument. I wanted a solid 12 string that had a good acoustical sound, but was easily amplified without the need for EQ�ۡ���s, sound hole, or transducer type pickups and other issues related to a standard acoustic guitar. The guitar has a wide neck across the fret board, good fret spacing, and low action straight from the box. The intonation was good in both open chord and bar chord playing at the 12th fret. I have medium large hands so the wide neck did not pose a problem and it makes picking comfortable, but someone with small hands may find it a bit difficult. The guitar is not balanced well at all and is top heavy. This causes the head to naturally tip downward while playing if you�ۡ���re standing up. If 12 string is your main axe it could be a little strenuous playing the guitar for long periods. The guitar is fairly basic with a single volume, tone control, and 3-way pickup selector. The form, fit, and finish is very good and it has the same weight and feel as an ES style guitar with a smaller body. It easily produces a nice warm sound of an acoustic as well bright sustain and crunch. This makes it easy to get a both an acoustic and electric sound from the guitar. I�ۡ���ve given the guitar an overall rating of 4 out of 5 because of the balance issue and wide neck, but for the price this is an outstanding guitar for those times when you want the chorus sound only a 12 string can give you.

02/07/10 I ordered this guitar through Guitar Center in Tulsa,OK. back in November. I got the amber sunburst. The price had lowered so I went for it, looking to get an electric 12 string into my collection of guitars. Listen folks, I went through 2 of these trying to get a good one, and it just wasn't happening! The craftsmanship & workmanship on these guitars were both defective! The first one had a neck pickup that was crooked, the high E string saddle was off kelter, 4 piece body, wiring showing through the F hole because the tacky strip inside that's supposed to hold them back had come loose, the F hole binding was defective, the nut had defects in it, one tuner had a washer upside down,and the Dean EVO case I ordered for it had glue smears all over the seams, and the Dean logo was crooked! The second one had a nut way too high, headstock had a chip in the black finish, three of the washers on the tuners were upside down, sloppy paint around the headstock, position marker had a small chipped spot in the fretboard. The second case also had glue smears along the seams, & it wouldn't close evenly without aligning it by hand! The logo was crooked on this one also! The attention to detail was sadly lacking. The one good thing I really liked was the width of the neck. Felt good in my hands. Unfortunately I did not want to try for a third time. I sent them back and cancelled this order. Dean, your overseas employees have got to do better than this. Quality control was not doing there job on these two!

It's pretty good

By Total control

from lancaster Cal

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

OK, I must say first off that I am no athority on 12 strings, I'm into bass... But, this is a NICE guitar. The pick ups are grade "A", and it has a very clean, pure sound. No matter what style of music you play, be Rock, Blues, Country, or what ever,it's a good bye. Now, I'm not going to paint a total rosie picture, it's pretty heavy. It's not like pure lead or anything, just slightly overwieght. But, don't let this keep your money in your pocket, it is well worth it, and you sould deffinitly get it, I am!

Happy player

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

Just received my Boca last nite. Overall it's an ace guitar!! Plays great, looks great. One minor setback. Volume pot not centered in dimple, makes th knob rub the finish. I cured that!!! I'm a Byrds fan and I can play them all. Great job,Dean.

Jangle for the Buck

By Guitar Slinger

from Hanover, Virginia

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

First things first, this is definitely not my "main" axe, but if you need a well-made, good-sounding 12 - string to cover Byrds or Beatles tunes, or just fill out your sound generally, grab this deal while you can. This three hundred dollar 12 string stays tuned, arrived properly intonated, looks and sounds good, and has a wide enough neck at the nut so that someone without tiny hands can actually play it (if you have ever played a Ric 12 you know what I mean). My band covers some late 60's material, and it nails "Nowhere Man" and "Get Together" without breaking the bank. It is a little top-heavy, but that is to be expected, but it is relatively light-weight and easy to play. Seriously, for the cost of some effects pedals you can get a usable instrument to expand your musical options and not break the bank. I have a number of fairly expensive, high quality guitars that I use much more than the Boca, but I feel as if I got a great deal for my money, and I wouldn't want to give it up. If you have the money, get one before they are gone - this guitar is worth it!

WOW What an instrument!!!!

By Dennis Schaumberg

from Sussex, Wisconsin

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

I realy don't need to say much about this little gem other then if you are in the market for an electric 12 string buy this sweet 12!!!! I have been playing guitar for 38+ years and have played MANY guitars. This gem is as good or better then any I have played. Even the very high dollar customs. Nothing needs luthing on this guitar. Everything is great right out of the box. For the folks whom don't like the tonality of this 12, might think about getting an amp that sounds the way they like it to. No need to change potentiometers, hardware or rewiring. Head stock is what it is. It's a 12. Pick ups sound great. No need to spend big bucks to get a quality 12 string. If you buy this guitar you won't be disappointed!!!!

Great Buy - Great Service

By Jerry S.

from Lockport, N.Y.

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

Thanks Guitar Center for your support in purchasing this item. Straight out of the box this guitar came fully tuned up, action was set beautifully, 1mm at the 17th fret - just the way I like em. when I looked at the neck and checked the truss rod adjustment she was set at .012 at the 8th fret. I was concerned that I would really be getting something that may not be playable at that price but I have absolutely no regrets. I would recommend this to anyone interested. It was quite a pleasant surprise.

Dean Boca 12 String Revised Review

By Cliff Hughes

from Miami,OK

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

09/26/10 I wrote a review back on 02/07/10. I went through 2 of these guitars in late 2009 trying to get a good one, but the workmanship & quality were poor on both of them. I returned them. I thought I would try one more time, so on 09/20/10, I thought third time would be the charm, & it was! This one was very nice. It had a beautiful flame top, the mahogany back was much better wood than I had seen on the previous ones. The neck was why I came back to this guitar. I love the width, which feels very good, and you can chord easily. The mini Grover keys are a plus. After tuning up, I found that nice chimey sound I was after. For the price, it's a no brainer if your looking for an affordable guitar. The Rickenbackers have a narrow neck I don't care for. And the price is hard to swallow these days. I ordered the Dean EVO case for this guitar, and it fits perfectly, and this one was much nicer than the previous ones I had ordered and had to return due to quality, such as logo crooked, tacky glue smears on the seams. This new one was what I expected in quality. So, in summary, Dean has stepped up and put out a much better guitar in quality than before. John Bunting at Guitar Center in Tulsa, OK always takes care of me. I am a happy camper now. Try one, good value for the money.

I returned it

By J.T.

from valparaiso,in

Comments about Dean Boca 12-String Electric Guitar:

I read all the reviews before buying and was excited to get this guitar. Very pretty guitar. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my expectations. It had a bad tone control pot and would cut out on the lower end. The jack to plug in was loose, wires showing thru sound holes,etc.
