Overview

The ML was created by Dean Zelinsky in 1977 to be the guitar with ultimate sustain and tone. Created with the Dean concept of spreading the mass of the body over a large area, the MLX electric guitar has something more. Dean believes radical string angles add to the resonance that helps a guitar become more alive. The distinctive headstock creates extra long string length, giving the ML a sound like no other guitar! Played by many of rock's elite over the past two decades, the ML has appeared in award winning videos, on stage and album covers, and more importantly, on some of rock's finest recordings.

With a light, basswood body, Grover tuners and a tune-o-matic-style bridge, you can't go wrong with the Dean MLX!

Alright first off let me say when plugged into a good amp this thing thrashes even with stock hardware. The soud quality of the pickups is good overall. Other than that this guitar is very poorly put together. The biggest problem I have is the neck... I don't even need a tremolo bridge to have a whammy effect. the weight of the guitar leaning on a stand is enough to make the neck torque the strings out of tune. The action is very poor aswell. For the money not a terrible buy but, There are alot of better made guitars out there for around the same price. Overall it's a guitar that makes as much of a headache for the player as the neighbors but nothing more.

Wow. Dean is Great.

By jackTHEchipmunk

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

I got my Dean MLx guitar for my b-day, and I just fell in love with it. I pluged it in to my Vox Amp. and turn that sucker up, and it sounded amazing. The price for this is $200?! I thought this guitar would run about $400! The price is amazing, so is the guitar. I recommend getting one for you people who are exploring more metal music. Great sound, Great price, Great guitar.

AWSOMENESS!!

By Dimeomatic3000

from Mobile, AL

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

This is the best guitar I've ever played, I played it at a local guitar center and it blew me away totally. The pickups are the best it sounds very good when playing with distortion or clean. Its one of the best deans for a REALLY good price, and is worth it 100%.

Great way to come back to playing after many years

By cjcalv1974

from Morgantown, WV

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

I have had my Dean ML X for 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it. I recently picked up the hobby again after 8-years, so I am quite rusty. I wanted an electric guitar that would be affordable and dependable, and I found just that in the Dean ML X. I play for fun, not because I have dreams of rock stardom like I did when I was 14. One of the things I really love is the neck and fretboard. I can really get my hands around the neck and the fretboard allows me the maneuverability that some of my past guitars did not. The shape of the guitar is killer, the body is solid, good sound, and as Dimebag says "the greatest headstock and logo on a guitar ever". It also stays in tune really well, rarely does it need much adjustment. My only complaint is no tremolo, but that I can live without for now. I plan to replace the stock pickups with a nice set of Seymour Duncans. I will eventually upgrade to a higher end model, but for the time being this guitar gives me what I need. I love Dean guitars and I plan to stick with them. I got my wings!

AMAZING AXE

By J O S E

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

I got the Classic Black a few months ago and let me tell you it is AMAZING!!!. It dosen't sound nothing like a cheap guitar at all. I like the shape of the body and the pickups are pretty sweet for beginners, but later I'll switch them for some Seymour Duncan pickups.

one insane guitar

By Andrew

from Phoenix Az

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

well i have had only 3 guitars, an acoustic, an awful jay turser starter, and this one, and when i got this i was amazed and thought "this cant possibly sound so good and be so cheap" well i was wrong. this thing is very light, nice to look at, and sounds insane. perfect for anybody who wants a guitar that can shred metal, rock, and punk all with terrific sound, not to mention this is all on a 10-watt marshall

A lefty loving his first Dean

By Cornfed

from Algonac, MI

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

Ever since I became a fan of Pantera, I've always wanted a Dean guitar. While this is one of only a few they offer in left hand, I absolutly love it. The neck is smooth witch I found to be a great feature from some guitars that had painted necks that just didn't feel right. Tuning was right on and very easy with this guitar. I recommend trying many different types of distortion to see what fits best. I think for what it's worth, this would be good for a guitar player at any level.

This guitar is sic!

By Tim Sammons

from Scottsdale, Arizona

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

This is definatly one of the best Dean guitars I've ever played. Imean the pick-ups on this thing are awesome and the shape is the BEST. It also has the signature Dean neck and winged logo. Who doesn't like that? The only downside is that it's pretty hard to sit down with but that's not a big deal at all. It screams with any amp. I recomend this guitar 100%!

Well...

By TECh2o

from Denver, CO

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

This guitar is very good. It looks great, sounds great, I love it. But there was only one problem I had. For me, its too big. Yeah it has a nice comfortable feel to it but much too big. The only case it fit in was HUGE and overall making it very heavy. I could never take it anywhere. So, overall, this is one great guitar. But too big for me. I am thinking of taking it back and exchanging it for another one, but I might keep it, I don't know what I'll do yet.

Great for the price

By JOHN MARCELINO

from california

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing on many levels! I bought this guitar at Guitar Center because the shape just got me and the sound for the price. I owned for about 2 years now it has lasted really well, no wear or tear so its durable. Well actually there is only one tearing witch was my fault for accidentally stepping on the guitar cable while the MLX was resting and the input was pulled off along with the striping the screw holes, making me drill three new holes for the screws to get screwed in again. Anyhow this guitar is really light weight, awesome shape, and very comfortable playing. I tried this guitar on many tunings such as Standard, Drop D, Tune D, Tune C#, even Drop B, and it sounds great on all of them. Although the humbuckers the guitar is equipped with are better on lower tunings like Tune D or below. The neck is sort of fat since its a C neck shape but you can get a tight grip for fast rhythms and sweeping leads. Anyhow, this review can go on but if you're on a budget, this guitar is for you, (If you do not care about the wood)

Very disappointed

By buisnesstime420

from Texas

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

Well I've had the guitar for about a month now and I'm quite disappointed. It has terrible action on the fretboard and you get annoying buzz all the time. Also the guitar is very high maintenance like I get this horrible loud buzz from the bridge constantly so I'm always having to adjust the height of the bridge and tighten the stings and within twenty minutes of playing i can hear the buzz over the freakin amp. Don't get me wrong I love Dimebag Darrell and dean guitars but if you want a good dean you gotta buy a high end one because they don't put their quality into these cheaper guitars.....peace

By Derek

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

To start off this guitar is one of the best ive played, expecialy considdering the price. Dean's Dimebag series is excellent and the MLX is a great open series to the dean line up. ive had this guitar for about a month and i just love it. the stock pickups are realy good, and have a superior sound compared to other guitars around the same price range. I would deffinatly recomend this dean guitar, expecialy for playing metal.

3 Thumbs Up

By Jimmy

from Illinois

Comments about Dean MLX Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar for a christmas present and right when i opened it, i knew it was an amazing guitar. The sound u get out of it is amazing, however, the strings sound kinda funny but with distortion, it sounds normal. The neck is fast and the body is light for the size of the guitar. ive bumped it on many things around my house and there r no scratches so far. finding a case is the hard part though, i ended up having to buy a coffin case that costed nearly as much as the guitar itself.anyways, all around great guitar and i would highly recommend any Dean to anybody decideing wut guitar they should get
