This guitar totally surpassed my expectations and then blew the door off! Quick back story: I ran into hard times and had to downsize. So I traded in my expensive Dean Deceiver with EMGs for this Michael Schenker Standard in the hopes I wouldn't get something totally inferior, given the price difference and pickups. Boy was I wrong. First, the tone; both pickups just roar like a lion but sound good played clean. The description just lists them as DMT Pickups. I'm making an educated guess that they are import versions of Schenker's USA DMT Lights Out Pickups since this guitar is made in the same plant as the Schenker Retro, and they sound ceramic to me. But not only do they roar under high gain, but they also manage to sustain a high degree of clarity and sustain. The tone control is very sensitive, you can dial in a lot of tones with just the tone knob and leaving your amp at your favorite setting. Second is looks. It's the basic black and white Schenker paint scheme, nothing fancy, but very handsome. It has the classic Dean V headstock which I love, a pure matter of personal taste. Lastly is playability. Awesome neck and fretboard. It's a super modern C, almost bordering on a D. It has 22 super jumbo frets and it's a very fast neck. And as with all V's, you have complete access to all 22 frets. I am still getting used to playing a V shaped guitar, but it is a fast and fun pleasure to play. I can't emphasize enough how much this guitar exceeded my expectations. I see why it gets the great reviews it does.

amazing guitar for its low price

By Snake_eyes126

from Clarence, NY

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

i just bought this guitar in the store 1 week ago today and i have hardly been able to put it down. it looks incredible, some have said that it doesnt give off a good metal sound, but i have to disagree, it sounds perfect, the only thing i will probably ever change is the volume and tone knobs to chrome, thats it, and of course the strings, but its an amazing guitar with a low price tag, i highly reccomend.

Dean Michael schenker standard

By Stephen

from Los Angeles, ca

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

Needless to say I'm a HUGE Michael Schenker fan and when these were introduced I really wished I could have afforded the signature series. But I had to have one so I ordered this. Let me tell you, i'm pretty much a beginner but was inspired after seeing him play in Long beach, ca. I must say that for the price....the sound out of this guitar is really great especially after i've played on friend's more expensive guitars. If your a schenker fan and love the looks of a V it's a must have!

Rock you like a hurricane

By Tim Sammons

from Scottsdale, Arizona

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

Out of all my guitars, I play this one the most. It's great distortion and awesome rock tone give it a 5 stars from me. The way it looks just blows me away. My favorite feature on it has to be the half black, half white head. I love Dean guitar heads and this is just plain cool. Great look. Great sound. Buy it.

SCORPION STUNG!!!!

By Hair Metal Rocker

from Idaho

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar as my first real axe and I love it to death. I have always liked the V-shaped guitars, then I found out about Dean with their sweet headstock and how Michael Schenker used them. I am a big fan of Scorpions and MSG so I instantly fell in love. I love the guitar as a whole. It has great tone, I use Dean Markley '73 reissue strings on it and it is great. I am just adding some chrome pickup covers to give it my own personal touch, maybe later I'll get a MS Lights Out pick up but its sound with stock pickups can rival Gibson guitars. Great buy, I strongly recomend this to players of all levels.

Could Be Better

By xXGetxPsychoXx

from Chalfont, PA

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

I like everything about this guitar except for the fret-board and pick-ups. other than that its a great guitar for starters. if i owned this guitar i would get rid of those open humbucker single-coils and throw in some EMG's. but thats just me. also, if you are a beginner, this isnt THE best beginner guitar, so keep your options open.

awesome v

By Anthony Gallucci

from emmaus, PA

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. the neck is super thin, the tuners stay in tune and the sustain is increadable. The only thing that I changed in the guitar were the pick ups. I didn't like the way that they sounded. They didn't have enough bite. I replaced them withemg passive h1 and h3 pickups. I play with ghs 10 gage strings. I also play through a 100 crate amp. the only cases that it fits in are the cases from dean, the skb v case, and the coffin case. The only other thing that I want to change are the strap buttons. For the money this is a great guitar, it stays in tune and sounds great with some changes.

gratest guitar for the price

By thrash metal 101

from St.Louis MO

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

i hav had this guitar for about 2 months now and it rules. i am a huge flying v fan and it sounds good to. if you are in to more metal or death metal you might want to change the dual humbuckers to emg's or something. this guitar sounds great on any kind of music especcially when its hooked up to a marshall stack.

Done right, this is an awesome guitar...

By Richard

from Eugene, OR

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

As one reviewer mentioned, swap out the humbuckers. I also had the neck re-set, the frets leveled and re-crowned. While I was changing the pickups (or a luthier can do it for you) I tapped the coil so that I can get a single coil in either the bridge or neck position. ALL This cost me was a couple hundred dollars and now the guitar is up there with the signature model. Choose your pickups carefully, I chose DiMarzio. Good Luck!!!
