Great guitar!

By SensiScholar

from Dallas

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I've been an exclusive Les Paul player for over 10 years as that was all I ever liked. I had a Jem 777, Jackson, Ibanez and thought all of "those guitars" were the same. Then I got this Dean a month ago and they're in a class of their own. The body takes some getting used to but the neck has spoiled me rotten. I haven't played my former favorite, a $4k Custom Shop LP Custom, since I got this Dean. I can testify that this will be the 1st of many Dean MLs I'll be owning. RIP, Dime.

By DJ

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

Ive been playing for almost 2 years now and ive always been a Les Paul guy owning 2 Epiphone Les Paul and a Gibson Les Paul Robot but this guitar changed my views in guitars. The first time i played this guitar i thought that this guitar was made for me. I plan to own many more Dean MLs in the future.

Amazing Guitar

By Hewitt

from Greensboro, North Carolina

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I just got this guitar last week and it is amazing. When I pick it up I can't put it down. I just love playing because it feels so good. I play it through a Line 6 spider III and it sounds awesome. With the double locking floyd rose I love to make those dimebag squeals. If you want an awesome guitar for an amazing price buy this one.

Best Guitar!!

By Alex

from San Jose CA

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

Omg. when I came in the store and tried the guitar , it absolutely blew my ears away with the pickups! also I could not stop playing the guitar becuase it literally felt like I was cheating on the neck. its a very very comfortable guitar! the bridge pickup is a old hot rod sound and the neck is very deep and dreamy and full. if you think I'm kidding go out and play one. you can get to playing whatever you want whether its blues or Pantera. another thing is about it is that the harmonics are very easy to obtain. just try it and see for yourself! Great guitar

GREAT BUY

By Will

from hoover, alabama

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

buy this guitar! me and my friends love it! the neck is so fast it feels great. It comes with high action but that is easily fixed. the dimebuckers are great and get such an amazing sound. go with this guitar, i would take it over the Gibson les paul classic ($1,900.00). for 549.99, im amazed i got it for this price.

Diggin' it.

By DOME

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

Pretty decent guitar indeed, don't be fooled though the bridge pick up is not the Dime Bag signature pick up, but it still has a good harmonic response and a lot of balls. The Neck pick up is also geared more so for rock but plays clean tones nicely, I very much like the middle position of the pick up selector. All mahogany body with set neck, Grover tuners attached to a decent trem system keeps you in tune pretty nicely. I just miss the yellow cream binding going around the whole instrument not just the neck, and the carved maple top with see through lacquer finish of course, but thats the trade off. If you want the one that has stunning looks for the same price, go with the Dean 79 series ML.

Nice for the Price!

By Tucksman

from Taft, California

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

For anyone who needs a quality guitar under a thousand, you can't get much better than the ML Shadow. The wideset-fretboard is fast and plays like a dream. A word of warning: The guitar is obviously solid-body, and the size makes it quite heavy. However, this makes for a rich, unique sound. Just be sure you've been working out before playing a gig. Luckily, Im pretty big, so there's no prob there.

Best Guitar for genre of Metal

By Jennifer Gonzalez

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

This guitar is just amazing! I currently own one just in a different color and this guitar is the perfect match with three pickups and tones amazing distortion, a smooth neck made of rosewood, easier to play because strings are at a fair distance where your fingers feel very comfortable, and an awesome body that is very unique first inspired by Dime from Pantera. Dime products are made to rock out loud in a way where you feel EXTRA comfortable.

If you are a dimebag fan or just looking for an awesome new guitar for good price you have to get this guitar. Smooth and easy playability. The licensed floyd rose lets you pop a squeal just like Dime. Overall it's an amazing guitar and you need to get it.

Best I've Played

By Scott

from Aurora, Colorado

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

My Dime Shadow is the best I have played. I love everything about it, the pickups are amazing, the Floyd Rose bar lets me do those killer dime squeals, its just an all out amazing guitar. I have an SG and this is just way over the top compared to my SG. It is a great guitar and I do recommend this to fast pace players, its my favorite guitar I have ever played.

DIME IS A GOD

By dan

from boston mass.

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for three months now and I haven't been able to put it down yet. it is such a bone crushing metal guitar that it makes all the other so called metal guitars sound weak.the only problem I have with it is it is not great for soloing.It is impossible to put this thing out of tune even after dive bombs for days.it is a killer guitar for heavy palm muted riffs.Thanks dime for this shred monster.buy the way put the DR dime strings on it.You'll be able to do dime squeals like the king

Very Good Guitar

By MadMarkus

from Sacramento, California

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

Bought this guitar because a friend told me it was a great metal guitar for the price. He is an exclusive Dean owner and seriously talented. I now have 4 axes in my collection - les paul studio, gibson explorer, Schecter C1 neck thru and now this amazing, very fast & unbelievable tone shredding guitar that I play more than any of my other guitars. Used my 15% GC coupon and even saved more off of the crazy price. I think the ML Shadow is the one of the best metal guitars out there. Hands down, this is one sick axe for the amount of bucks GC is asking.

Amazing guitar

By Dustin

from St. John, IN

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I've been playing guitar for a little while now and I've tried a few guitars so far, but this Dean is definitely one of the best I've tried. It's got the Floyd Rose tuning system which keeps it in tune well. It's got a nice sized neck so I don't have trouble playing any frets. It's finish is very cool, gotta love the black. The neck inlays are really cool looking, especially the razor blade on the 12th fret. It's a bit heavy, and takes a bit getting used to with the unusual shape. After you get used to it though it's amazing to play. All in all, love this thing and my next guitar will have a hard time topping this one.

Incredible, worth it.

By Matthew W.

from Ozark,AL

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I went up to guitarcenter looking for this guitar, I found it and plugged it in. Right away I knew I was going home with it. The neck is extremely smooth and fast, it glides through your hands. Both pickups are incredible. The clean sound is amazing. The distortion blows you away. It is actually pretty versatile in my opinion. But definitely made for Metal. You can abuse the floyd rose without fear of going out of tune. It is pretty light and looks amazing. I am glad I got my wings.

Got my wings

By Jonathan Plaza

from Hermosillo, SON, MEX

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for 3 years now and what can I say, it is just perfect. Stock pickups are fine, but after a year I changed the blade bucker for a Bill Lawrence L500XL which made it even better. this new combination of pickups made the guitar to do whatever it wants. Its clean sound is great and the distortion takes you to a new level. I've played in a Pantera tribute band and those dimesqeals sound like crazy. Of course its look is great and it is a lot lighter than it appears to be. I just wish the bridge was an Original floyd rose instead of a licenced one but it still works just as great as it needs to, the only problem is the annoying way in which you have to screw the tremolo bar. Over all I would say this guitar is far beyond other 600 bucks guitar Ive ever played plus the hard case that is included is just perfect for it protects this baby just as it needs. I really recommend this guitar and in my experience, dean is always great so go get your wings.

Total Shredder

By Michael V. Brown

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

If country music or blues is your goal forget this guitar. If hard rock, metal, and shredding, is your goal than this is the guitar for you. Very well constructed very sturdy, good electrical wiring job, and stays in tune. The neck is wider than most necks, but still feels and plays good. I replaced the pickups with a Dimebucker and DiMarzio Super Distortion that brought it to its full potential. But even stock this guitar cannot be beat for the price. If you have a chance to get one, then don't hesitate. You'll be glad you did.

Awesometastic!

By Adan Aranda

from Yuma az

Comments about Dean Dime Shadow ML Electric Guitar:

So I just bought myself a used Dean shadow off the guitar center site and man there's only so much I can say about this really awesome guitar. first is that it's little. haha second the neck and fret board are so thin and smooth, I myself aren't the kind of person to sweep and do all those technical stuff, im more of an old school soloist but man, its so smooth and thin, you can sweep and not even notice! The floyd is pretty awesome, Only bad thing is that when you put new strings they detune quite a bit but im sure all floyds do that right? Anyways, from me to a person who doesn't have or hasnt played a dean shadow.. if your looking for a sexy, smooth, fast and loud. get this guitar, this guitar is way better than my Gibson les paul goldtop, Jackson dinky and my Jackson randy Rhodes.
