Awesome Guitar !

By Mark Jacoby

Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio Speed of Light Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar at a workshop Michael Angelo Batio did at Guitar Center last month. I was lucky enough to get it signed by him that night as well. The guitar plays great. Neck is very fast and smooth. Great combo of tones from the EMG pick ups. Was blown away with the graphics in person. Pictures I saw did not do justice to how great this guitar looks. The more I play this guitar the harder it is to put it down. I have guitars from Ibanez, Schecter, Washburn, B.C. Rich, and 2 Deans. This is the guitar I keep going to now.

    Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio Speed of Light Electric Guitar:

    I bought one of these, And I have to say overall for the money it is a good Guitar however there are some issues. The neat graphic on the front of the guitar is very very cheap in fact it is just a wrap it's not even under any sort of clear coat. It's already starting to bubble up around the pick up rings which is very disappointing. I don't think it would have been that big of a deal to make the graphics application more durable and charged a tiny bit more for the guitar. The other issue is that the Colors are off they have a greenish hue to them which is the biggest issue for me it kind of kills the point, again why create such a killer graphic only to fail on the execution?

    Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio Speed of Light Electric Guitar:

    this is my 3rd review on this guitar, I do a lot of blues, learning jazz too, I play metal and rock to. and having it for a month now , it just feels kind of cheap, plus ive already had to adjust the truss rod , because the cheap neck already started getting a strong concave bow in the neck, I live where it goes from hot to cold constantly. Another plus is the awesome graphics, and the weight distribution from neck to body. those two are pros. for the guitar. I might return it for Schecter or ESP.

    Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio Speed of Light Electric Guitar:

    I don't play professionally, but I have a lot of fun practicing, I like the quality ebony Dean uses, and everything else, I'm not normally into bolt-on necks,
    and I'm surprised how it came with a three piece maple
    neck, and so far, all is well, the only thing is that the guitar
    came pretty dusty, and the fine tuners aren't the smoothest. This was the last one from, Kansas City. If the
    tuners don't smooth up a little, I might re-order for the month of September, this is the only part that's not good.
