The Dean Custom 350 Electric Guitar has a Floyd Rose tremolo gracing its double-cutaway body. Constructed with a carved flamed maple top and a lightweight basswood back, the guitar boasts a 25½" scale length bolt-on maple neck. The 6-in-line headstock is emblazoned with a winged Dean logo.
The guitar's 24-fret rosewood fingerboard is decorated with pearl dots and a custom inlay at the 12th fret. High-output DMT humbucking pickups deliver a variety of rockin' tones and a push/pull coil-splitting tone control lets you perform all musical genres by letting you also capture single-coil pickup sounds. A Floyd Rose Special tremolo bridge and a locking nut gives you additional expressive finesse without fear of going out of tune.

I have had this guitar for a little over a year now, so I feel confident in writing this review. First, the sound. The Custom 350F sounds great. The factory pickups are very good and the coil tap works well. Pickups are a very individual thing according to personal taste, but this is my third Dean and they have all had great pickups. This one has a DMT Nostalgia in the neck and a DMT Equalizer in the bridge. I really think that Dean makes the best factory pickups, much better than the factory one's from ESP, Ibanez or any other makers that aren't named Gibson. You can really get any tone you want; from metal, classic rock, jazz or blues. The coil tap transforms it to a very clean machine. I have played it thru both of my amps; a solid state Acoustic Lead Series and an old Marshall hybrid Valvestate with a 12AX7 preamp and it sounds great thru both. Second is the playability. The neck is a C-Shaped and it is nice and thin. The back is unfinished and very fast. Easy to shred on. The action is a little higher than on my Mustaine Zero AOD2, but not by much. Over all, very playable. Lastly is fit and finish. This is a very sexy guitar. I bought the transparent blue and the flame maple top just looks incredible. This guitar has the sound, playability and looks that would easily compete with guitars in a much higher price point. This is a great guitar for any style and any level of player. As always with any guitar with a Floyd Rose, be weary of the pain the Floyd Rose can be. The Floyd on this model works well, which was a surprise; but like all Floyd equipped guitars be ready for a pain changing strings or tunings. If you are going to change tunings, I would think about investing in an EVH DropD Tuna.
I bought this and it was a demo model. It was set up great, witch made it play very well. There was a few blemishes on the neck but it was all cosmetic. As a demo model it was played on and the jack was lose. I put longer screws and tightened it no problem since. Stays in tune very well. I further ajusted the action at home and after playing deans higher end models this is comparable with just the slightest differnece in playability. I was not expecting the ease of play from this guitar. All this said, I am fairly new at playing so my experience is limited. But for the 300 bucks this was a great buy for me. When shopping for this I looked at the rg series and the prestiege series to gage what was out there and what I could get for the money. From what I had to chose from this was the best deal at the time and comparable play-ability to 600 or 700 dollar guitars. From my limited experience, owning a epiphone les paul, squirer strat and some other acoustics. This is easyer to play then both the others. Its length and neck are a good fit compared to the squire and epiphone. Action is comparable though the sound on the squirer is slightly better. hope this helps.
This guitar is great all around. The pickups are some of the best in this price range. The neck is smooth and bluesey. The bridge pickup is hot. The neck is comfortable, not too chuncky not too thin. The floyd special stays in tune after divebombing and screams. I had to set mine up, so be prepared. When it arrived it was the worst setup I had ever seen. The screws for the tremelo springs were crooked. The setup did not take too long, so please do not get discouraged. You can always take it to a luthier. The coil tap works, maybe I will use it in the future, right now its not for me. The paint was flawless, trans blue is a nice color. The guitar has a nice tone, sounds good through my peavey vypyr and 6505. If your looking for a guitar with a floyd or just a good price this is it. It does not feel cheap in any way. thanks
this guitar looks amazing!! im hoping to get by the end of august along with the black fender frontman 25w amp! this guitar looks affordable and amazing. it can easily compete with other guitars in the $500 range but its only $300 and it comes with a licensed floyd rose, now what i really wanted was a double cut-away guitar with a floyd rose so i looked at esp-ltd,jackson, schecter,fender,and of course dean. now as i said earlier i really wanted a floyd rose but all of the other companies that had floyd rose;s on their guitars were $500+ and money is tight as s#@t right now so i started looking at dean guitars and found a lot of good reviews and i finally settled on this one bc 1. its affordable 2.it looks nice and 3. it has a floyd rose!!! i cant wait to get it i haven't played it yet but i highly recommend it!!
Pros: -Light-weight -Great stock pickups (clean and distorted) -Fast -Floyd Rose -Coil tap -Looks wonderful -Price Cons: -Takes time to setup -Takes time to changed tuning This thing sounds great. The pickups have a serious crunch to them. This guitar shreds with distortion and sounds beautiful clean. I ran it through an acoustic simulator with the coil tap engaged and it sounded better than any real acoustic I've played. It's lightweight and fast. The neck is smooth. The fret board is really comfortable and the action is low. It took some time to setup though, but that's to be expected with a Floyd Rose. Once you get it set up and in tune it stays that way. A couple side notes: The screws inside mine were pretty crooked (the ones that attach the spring plate to the body). So when I was adjusting the spring tension on the bridge, the screws swiveled pretty bad. This made it some-what difficult to set everything up. I think it's just that way in mine though. The screws really should be straight and even. But all in all, I love this guitar - can't stop playing.
Ok I have been waiting for this guitar for a while. i was previously playing on an epiphone g300 and i wanted to upgrade to a guitar that was a better use to the music i played. i finaly get it and i put it in standard tuning to play some chuck berry and stevie ray Vaughn to test out the tone and action. both tone and action are very good but the sustain isnt all that great. so after i tested this i went down to drop b to play some slipknot. thats where it started. it took me an hour and 30 mins to tune down. they were slipping uncontrollably. so i said to myself no big deal theyre new stings and i just gotta break em in. well i did... still takes an hour and a half to change tuning. so i said theyre stock strings i can justy change em.. i got some ernie ball strings and the same problem. even tuning from standard to half step down takes an hour. this is my first floyd rose system and i dont know if they are all like this but it is too much of a hassle to tune. my 12 string is easier. once you do get it in tune. the floyd holds up extreamly well. it is also very senstive. i dropped the bar to the body while the strings waved at about 4 inches above the fret board and it stayed in tune. the neck is very comfortable too. i especialy like the tone and volume steel knobs. but the best thing about this guitar is the finish. the trans red is immaculate. i think i will replace the pickups though. and the bridge flyers need replacing. the middle one stripped. really the only down things are the strings pickups and the hour and a half tuning. if anyone has a solution to the tuning problem please comment and tell me how to fix it. thanks
i got this at my local pm music (mines metallic silver, it was the only color left) great guitar for an amazing price it cold have been twice as much and i still would have bought it
I picked this up on clearence. What a great guitar. The pickups pack some punch and they are crunchy. Its very responsive for stock pickups. The floyd special is great. Once I set it up it stays in tune through my whammy abuse. Great for whammy screams. The neck feels comfortable and fast. This price is low and the guitar could easily compete with $500+ guitars. I love it. The coil tap is another feature, I really don't use it, but it does work and you can hear the difference. The Blue finish is great looking. I see no problems with the paint or neck. The tuners are grover and they do their job just fine. Customer service was great too. GC did not give me a whammy bar, so I called dean guitars and they sent me one right away. So far I have no complaints. I can play hard rock metal or just shredd away.
this guitar is great. sounds great plays great, and is not that expensive. if you see this guitar dont think about it just buy it. this is the coolest guitar i've ever had.
