Strike it rich with this dark beauty.
The Dean Black Gold Z Electric Guitar features a solid Z-shaped mahogany body and neck with a flame maple top. The transparent black finish allows the flame grain to shine through, giving the guitar a unique air of diabolical beauty. Finishing touches to the look include full binding on the body and headstock, pearl block inlays on the rosewood fretboard, and all gold hardware.
Of course, being a Dean, you know this beast is endowed with more than visual temptations. String-through construction brings out the high sound qualities of this tonewood: mahogany for great sustain and depth, the maple top for brightness and clarity. 2 high-output covered humbuckers mean business when they carry this tone to your amplifier. Whether you're chunking out a locomotive-from-hell rhythm or slicing the air with a face-melting solo, Dean's Black Gold Z is a well that won't run dry.

Dean seems to be a brand that develops a certain stigma from players that have yet to actually try one. "I'm not Dime, why should I play a Dean?" How unfortunate...because in all honesty this is an instrument whose quality exceeds it's cost. The instrument is beautiful for starters, and although some I know find the V-headstock to be kinda hoaky...I think it actually looks really cool on an Explorer-style body. Speaking of which, this is probably the lightest explorer I've ever played...might dictate the origin of the Mahogany wood, but as long as it resonates like Mahogany, I don't really care where it comes from. The construction is solid, and the incredibly flat top lends really well to metal playing with lots of chugs, but the voicing on the neck pickup makes you wanna pull off some wicked blues licks too. Add to all this, it looks really awesome with a dressier, all-black stage outfit, and this thing is going to see a lot of stage time from me.
This is an awsome guitar. It has awsome sound, feel, and look. It is very good for both rhythm and lead play. It is a light guitar so it is nice to carrie around and trash on. I highly recommend this guitar for players who are intreseted in playing any type of metal/rock.
