Bright, good tone, great looks incredible value

Comments about Dean Exotica Select Tiger Eye Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for about 6 months now. I play occasionally at home and at church gatherings few times a month sometimes plugged in. I'm an intermediate guitar player with many years in the church band on other instruments. Pros: Awesome looks! even up close! The fit and finish is just levels above the price tag. Abalone trims on the fretboard, rosette, bindings ... simply stunning. Tuners are good, solid and keeps the correct pitch even with string bends. UST pickup is decent, lots of adjustments (4 band EQ) and flexible output (1/4 balanced and XLR). On board tuner is accurate, wished it had a meter display, but it works fine. So far so good, no quality issues, no buzzez. Great attack/responsiveness. Intonation and sustain is good. Cons: With the strings off I slipped in my digital camera inside the sound hole and found out that the top is laminate not solid wood. The top facing outside is maple and seems to be spruce underneath facing inwards. Not sure of the sides and back, but I won't be surprised if they are laminate too (both sides seem to be maple tho). Sound is not as loud as I hoped for such a big bodied guitar, probably because of the use of the laminate woods I mentioned above. No pick guard. I added a translucent one I found online. Other notes: I'll leave comments about tone here. I feel it's just neutral, not bad but not stellar either. Upgrading the plastic saddle did improve this. This guitar can be a bit too bright or metallic sounding for some as expected of an all maple body. I use Elixir Polyweb coated strings which solves this issue. I actually like the slick coated feel so this is actually a plus for me coz otherwise I could not use the Polywebs and would have to go with the Nanowebs or other brands. Nut, saddle, bridge pins are all plastic but very much expected in this price range. The guitar is slightly on the heavy side but is expected for such jumbo guitar with maple wood.

Awesome Guitar!

Comments about Dean Exotica Select Tiger Eye Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar mainly to replace my Ibanez. I was planning on taking the ibanez home and leaving it there in a few weeks and needed another guitar to take that ones place. I did tons of research and even though I had enough money for a lower end Martin this Dean just caught my eye.. I recieved it today and all can say is...WOW. I expected it to be a decent guitar but it completley blew me away! I changed the strings to some Elixir's before even playing it the first time and was slightly angry because i was getting a lot of fret buzz from the 4th fret up but a quick truss rod turn solved that and I gotta say this thing sounds like a dream! Not to mention it simply looks amazing! The tones are MUCH crisper and louder than my Ibanez. Im not sure if theres slightly less space between frets or what but songs that used to give me a little trouble in certain areas are a breeze on this guitar..bar chords are definatley easier...the fretboard is so smooth to play on its like glass! I only hooked it up to an amp for a few min but it sounded pretty darn good. But im LOVING the unplugged sound from this thing.. I havent been able to put it down and now im to the point of just taking it home with me instead and bringing it back each time because i dont want to part with it! This is one sexy as hell, smooth playing, guitar with a GREAT sound.. Im so glad i decided on this guitar instead of the martin and saved myself a few hundred bucks for something else!

great guitar

Comments about Dean Exotica Select Tiger Eye Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Honestly this is the best acoustic I've played. I ordered mine online so there was that whole never buy a guitar you haven't played before thing, but I thought I'd take a chance (return policiy is great) and it payed off. This guitar sounded great out of the box. The low end rings forever and a day. It is great for blues stuff. The body is big and picks up every little note and is super responsive and the guitar itself is beautiful. I'm really surprised by the price, it should cost alot more. Dean makes a high quality instrument. Also I just think how the built in tuner uses the dean logo is creative.

Sensitive and full at same time

Comments about Dean Exotica Select Tiger Eye Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I stumbled onto this guitar while browsing at Guitar Center a few years ago. I wasn't planning a purchase. It caught my eye and was the only model left. I was mesmerized. I bought it without a case on the spot. I have played Taylors that aren't this responsive and nuanced. Granted, not made same way and not in league with Martins, etc., but LOVE Dean guitars and believe in their truly sexy, innovative design and solid products. Try them, you may find one you love, too.

Clean, Loud, Bright!!!

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Dean Exotica Select Tiger Eye Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Ive owned this acoustic for about a year now. It amazes me everytime I play it. It booms really loud when strumed but it still has all the definition of a $3000 guitar. I dont use the electronics on it really, I prefer to hear the strings ring out. I use Elixir 11's usually but even cheap 3 dollar strings sound fantastic with this guitar. The jumbo size took some getting use to, but this is the best value in an acoustic ive come accross
