Dean Guitars

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I friend of mine is thinking of selling a Dean guitar. I think it's from the USA but I could be wrong hence why I'm asking you guys.

Are they any good. I know it's got a locking trem and HB & SC pick ups. It's shaped like a strat though, not one of the V's etc. I just fancy something different. I've look on the Dean site and not found one like it to compare etc.

I normally play Gibsons, a LP, or lately a TV Jnr or Melodymaker.

cheers

PS....don't worry Hate Event.....still on!!!!!

Good to hear the P.S.! :up:

USA Deans are fantastic guitars. I have the USA DFH (Dean From Hell) and it's amazing quality, feel and tone. I'll let you try it out.

Got any pics of the one your mate is selling? So I can I.D. It for you :)

I have got some but I don't know how to get them on here. It's like a strat shape with longer 'horns' for want of a better word for them. SD pick ups and a FR locking trem. The headstock is differnet from most Deans I've seen on the web.....It looks like an old Heritage headstock. I'm going to ask him tomorrow what the model is. I think he said it was made for some guitarist that was an endorsee.

BTW, plan to take the sg back home so you can try the pickups out.

Ok, I bit more detail. It seems that the guitar was custom built for the endorsee guy. My mate can't remember the guitarists name (maybe not a good thing) though he has all the documents back home.

So, you reckon that the US made Deans are well made etc. Are we talking Fender/PRS etc type quailty?
