The Dean V 79 Flame Maple guitar has been a staple of the company's lineup since 1977. This V initially found favor with German hard rock guitarists; today, you'll find it in the hands of many thrash and metal musicians. Its classic mahogany body features a flame maple top with a beautiful gloss finish. The mahogany neck is set-in for maximum sustain. It has a comfortable C-shaped profile with a headstock that matches that body's contours, a look that screams "Dean." The Indian rosewood fretboard has a flat 12" radius, perfect for sweep picking, speedy runs and tuneful bends.

Dean loads the V 79 with a pair of DMT Series Time Capsule humbuckers, capturing the tone of late ’70s to mid ’80s models. Time Capsules use ceramic magnets to achieve their hot output. Expect thick mids and strong lows—these ’buckers have serious bite.

Other features include Grover tuners, a tune-o-matic tailpiece, and elegant body and fretboard binding.
