The Dean Exile Select Quilt Top electric guitar is a beast in tonal flexibility with extreme playability. There’s only one word to describe the quilt maple top: stunning. The Exile features an alder body—a tonewood known for its clear highs and thick, balanced lows. Brushed chrome EMG 57tw and 66tw humbuckers can be split into single-code with push/pull volume and tone pots. The neck is 3-piece maple with two full octaves of access on a bound ebony fretboard. The 5-ply binding continues on the headstock and body, tying the look all together. Dean is a true force in the world of shred guitar, and the Exile Select Quilt Top combines this ferocity with class in one single instrument.
