The Dean Exhibition Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex is designed to be a perfect companion onstage.
Made with flame maple, the thin body of the Exhibition adds comfort while helping to reduce feedback when plugged in. The slim D-shaped profile of the set mahogany neck is extremely comfortable for electric guitarists and features a 25-1/4" scale. Appointments include a smooth ebony fingerboard, pearl diamond inlays, black NuBone nut & saddle, Grover tuners, and DMT electronics with Aphex Aural Exciter.
Optimized for Dean's acoustic/electric guitars, the Aurel Exciter adds air, bite, definition, percussive attack, and better clarity by enhancing the natural harmonics of the sound. No other exciter has the musicality of the true Aurel Exciter found in Dena acoustic/electric guitars.
The Aphex Big Bottom circuit dynamically enhances the low end by deepening and expanding the bass tones according to an adaptive process. It's not just an equalizer boost - it increases volume before feedback. The effect fattens the tone while it extends the guitar's bass producing capability. The Aphex brings out the box and adds a warmer tone that makes your guitar sound bigger and fuller.
Simply press the Aphex button and the guitar comes alive. Experience world class studio/live enhancement of your sound. Case sold separately.

Comments about Dean Exhibition Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:
I purchased this guitar online. I have seen this guitar advertised elsewhere as having a 24.25 inch scale length on the neck, even though at Guitar Center they have it listed as having a 25.25 inch length, so I called Dean and they verified that it has the shorter 24.25 scale length. I wanted this length because I have short fingers with a small reach and have been slowly switching over my guitars to the shorter 24 inch scale length which really does help me out. I hoped that Guitar Center had the scale length wrong, but was somewhat skeptical. So anyway, first off this guitar does not have the shorter neck. It is indeed a 25.25 inch neck. So right off the bat it's not what I wanted. It does have a nice comfortable C shaped neck. The tuners felt positive and the tuner buttons was a nice generous size and felt good. The intonation at the 12th fret was good except for the low E string which was a bit sharp, not an unusual situation. The neck needed a serious truss rod adjustment because it was bowed way upwards, which resulted in a very high action. This made the guitar very hard to play. The saddle was also very tall, and would probably need to be shaved down to help with the high action. Sadly the finish, which looks pretty cool in the online ads, is one of the poorest I have ever seen in a guitar. There were runs and sags in the clear coat all over the body. Also there was a fingerprint on the soundboard in the finish as well as numerous rough spots where it looked like something had gotten into the finish. The sound of the guitar was just ok. Even though it is a full sized body width, just a shallower body depth, this guitar was very muted in sound. It just didn't have much presence. With the electronics plugged in it was obviously louder and it sounded much better. I really liked the cutaway body which helped nicely fretting up high on the neck. But even if the scale length had been 24.25 inches I would have returned this guitar because it was such a poor quality instrument. And this is not a particularly cheap guitar either. The quality control and factory set up just is really lacking here, let alone the inaccurate scale length information from the manufacturer. Needless to say I will be returning this to Guitar Center.
