      Comments about Dean Signature Series MAB3 Michael Batio Flame Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      I've had the guitar for about 6 months and I couldn't be happier. Finish is fantastic, and it was set up perfectly out of the box. After some minor adjustments I played it for a few months in standard tuning and drop-d but i decided i wanted to put it in c-standard, so i bought some cleartone c-standard strings and screwed around with 'em for a while. It sounded great, unlike a lot of guitars that loose that clarity drop-tuned, but i decided to go back to standard tuning. i bought some DR Dimebag signature strings and oh lord this thing SCREAMS now. The Floyd Rose works great, and the tremelo arm is very smooth. The Grovers feel great and are very accurate. Neck if very fast and comfortable. My only complaint is that the volume pot keeps coming loose so i have to remove the knob and re-tighten it regularly. I'm sure its just a defect in mine though.
      Overall, its a fantastic guitar and i would totally recommend it.
