Comments about Dean ZX Flame Top Electric Guitar:

This guitar not only looks really nice, but feels and plays well too. I am amazed how good the neck feels on this guitar too, 14" radius, and so sleek and trim. Very fast neck, and the pickups are great for rock and hard rock, and you can get a good metal sound from your pedals too. Great beginner guitar, and not a bad upgrade either!

Comments about Dean ZX Flame Top Electric Guitar:

Looks good, feels good. This is a pretty fair guitar all around, but these low/mid range Deans can be hit or miss. The one I got had no relief (i.e. could not loosen) in the truss rod so I could not quite get the action down as far as I would have liked. Also, the cheaper tuners and nut on the guitar tend to bind a bit and this effects how well it will stay in tune. I little graphite powder fixes that. Pickup is a bit mild, and is very 80s/vintage sounding which is nice, and pushes pedals well. All around, it is a decent guitar. I am a bit picky, though, and took this one back to get a higher model Dean. If you are looking for a pro level guitar, I would not recommend this one until you try it first.
