A great-sounding dreadnought with unique styling and upgraded electronics.
The Dean 12 Gauge Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/Aphex has some unique features and special electronics that are designed to produce improved acoustic sound on stage. This guitar is also available without cutaway (our sku # H73781).
The Dean 12 Gauge lives up to its name with a mahogany gun stock pickguard and a shotgun shell knob inlay at the 12th fret. Acoustically, this guitar produces a loud and well-balanced sound thanks to its solid spruce top and mahogany body. Other refinements include a comfortable mahogany C shape neck, maple dot inlays, nickel hardware, and APHEX electronics.
Optimized for Dean's acoustic/electric guitars, the Aurel Exciter adds air, bite, definition, percussive attack, and better clarity by enhancing the natural harmonics of the sound. No other exciter has the musicality of the true Aurel Exciter found in Dena acoustic/electric guitars.
The Aphex Big Bottom circuit dynamically enhances the low end by deepening and expanding the bass tones according to an adaptive process. It's not just an equalizer boost - it increases volume before feedback. The effect fattens the tone while it extends the guitar's bass producing capability. The Aphex brings out the box and adds a warmer tone that makes your guitar sound bigger and fuller.
Simply press the Aphex button and the guitar comes alive. Experience world class studio/live enhancement of your sound. Case sold separately.

Comments about Dean 12 Gauge Solid Top Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/Aphex:
This guitar was well set up when it arrived. It has a nice, full sound unplugged and can rock the house down with my little Line 6 Spider amp. I've only had it about a week so I cannot comment on how it holds up over the long term but I'd think if it is taken care of it will be just fine. The built in tuner is a plus.
