    Comments about Dean Custom 550 Floyd Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar out of the box. When I recieved it, as with every new guitar, I go through it and make sure everything is good and tight and change out the strings - I use Super Slinky's. The electronics were very good on mine, all solder joints looked solid and clean. The action needed to be lowered and the spring claw needed to be adjusted to accommadate lighter strings, but no big deal. After I got the strings changed, tuned and the guitar set up to my liking (inotation was dead on out of the box) - I plugged in and from there I have no idea where the time went. 4 hours later and I was still jamming on this guitar. It just has a great sound, great sustain, and an overall great feel to it. Neck through, ebony fingerboard, active EMG's, and a Floyd Rose 1000 - what more could you ask for or need. Stayed in tune the entire time I played, through dive bombs and pitch raises. The active EMG's are just awesome, great sound. The feel of the guitar is actually pretty light compared to other strat style guitars I have played and LP's. The neck is smooth and fast. Overall a great guitar with great feel and great sound.
