    This guitar has excellent pickups. The bridge has a mid/treble spike with lots of harmonics. I would say it is a cross between a JB and a Fred. Called Dean and they said these are import versions of their Equalizer and Nostalgia pickups. Coil tap and tone knob are balanced well, and whole set sounds very versatile and matched.

    The guitar craftmaship is good, nice flame maple in blue, but without direct light, guitar looks almost black. Guitar sounds like an RG (basswood / maple) and is about the same weight maybe a tad heavier.

    The body has a slight arch to the front and also a slight rout on the upper bout. Edges are rounded more than the angular RG. Neck has a nice gradual releif and frets were machine leveld. Medium/Jumbo frets. Back of neck has a nice grain but is not pretty like a 1K guitar. Neck is a bit thicker than a wizard.

    Floyd Rose Special surprisingly stays in tune. I have played high-end Ibanez for years and the Floyd is not as ergonomic as the LoPro edge for the right hand, but the bar is better positioned and requires less movement for technique. Can be upgraded with OFR tone block and saddles if desired.

    Guitar is inspected in USA and action from box was good. I suspect it can get much lower. However, the intonation is not set it uses the stock Floyd jig. None of the frets are overhanging the board although they can use a polish. Only real problem is that one of the claw screws was stripped (!) and needs to be replaced.

    This is a great alternative to entry level Ibanez. The only thing keeping it from feeling like a 1K+ guitar is that it needs a heavier sustain block, and the pickup rings are plastic. Also, binding on headstock is plastic.

    These pickups really surprised me and are good for shredders and dark amps. Pickups are personal choice, but these are as good as Dimarzios/Duncans (I usually use Evolutions and Full Shred), I'm not going to change them. For someone who is comfortable setting up their own guitars this is an amazing value.

    Unfortunately this guitar had major damage to the body. One of the inlays was so deep in the fret board that it was just a hole. I could not get string buzz to stop without taking the strings to a ridiculous height. It is unplayable. The back had a chunk of wood missing and a split. I have never seen quality this bad. I have no choice but to return this guitar. What a hassle all around. I have bought other guitars for a similar price and was able to tweak it and get string buzz out without the action being to bad and there was no damage to the body like this or holes in the fret board. I am shocked at the quality. This was the silver model in case you are wondering and hope you don't get this one if you order silver. Sorry I had to give a bad review, but it is the truth.

    Worst Guitar I've Owned

          Comments about Dean Custom 350F Electric Guitar:

          I got one of these as a birthday present a year ago. It is by far the WORST guitar I have owned. It won't hold its tune for more than a minute without the locking tuners, and even with them on it can drop a whole level within 20 minutes... Ive tried tightening the screws on the end of the pegs and it still wont hold its tune, I even replaced the strings and still couldn't hold a tune. Plus the method for replacing the strings is horrible. You put the ball end of the string through the peg at the top, and the run the string down the fret board, stick the end in a tiny hole in the bridge and basicly clamp it down and hope your tightened it enough otherwise when you tune it you'll get smacked in the face with the string, and that hurts really bad.

                  I must say, I saw a lot of good reviews on this guitar but I had no idea how good it really was until I got it! And I'm not just saying that. I love this guitar. Stays in tune. I can use the floyd rose like a mad man and it always stays perfect! I love it! It has a great tone. And though some say it is just a metal guitar, I have made many of different sounds come out of this bad boy from blues to jazz, rockibilly up heavy metal! I would say BUY THIS GUITAR!! Wooooooooo!

                      Dean has always made great guitars and this is no exception. It was ready to play out of the box and I could not be happier. It has sustain/gain to spare and if you kick it down to Single Coil Mode it transform into a very clean machine.The Floyd Rose works as advertised. I bought the Transparent Blue and it looks great; the combination of the Maple Top and the paint job looks very classy for this price point. For the price point I bought this at, this guitar has many options that would be in a guitar that would be triple that price.

                        Packaging: Arrived in the factory carton box.
                        Craftmanship: Impressive looks, good quality on knobs, 3-position switch, hum pickups and tremolo bar. One knob had a sticker which I took out which loosened the knob. Had to tighten it.
                        Weight: Considerably heavy (to my taste as I use a Strat).
                        Size: Larger than expected (tried to fit it in a standard hardcase but couldn't by 2").
                        Sound: Good overall sound but have not tested it enough.
                        Cost: The overall value received for the cost is impressive. I was expecting much less for the cost!

                              I have no idea why this guitar has received 5 star reviews. Ever since I received mine it's had numerous problems. The neck fits horribly in the pocket causing intonation problems with strings that are unaligned with the edge of the neck. The frets are uneven and the action has to be set rather high to prevent buzz. The nut on the input jack has fallen off twice. When I went to fix it the second time the soldering came loose from the jack. I tried to pull the wires out to resolder them but there's no slack. Absolutely useless. Please do not waste your money.

                              This guitar is my best guitar ever! its sounds so good! with the coil-spliting system you get a lot of diferent tones like warm tones to bright. The neck is really flat and it helps you shred on it. The Floyd Rose is awesome you can really divebomb and it wont get out of tune. the finish is really good i have the transparent black and its awesome! overall! its a great deal u can play any kind of music in this guitar so is the best for its price! so get yours NOW!
