By Michael Wells - January 2, 2015
This guitar was well over six hundred for 3 three years after it came it out and it's loaded. Flame maple top, Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fretboard, Deceiver Inlays, EMG 81/85 Pickups. First tone. Very nice sounding axe. You can get any tone you want from this guitar, it's not just a metal axe. Now dropping to clean setting on your amp will leave you only the neck pickup (the 85) for great cleans, the bridge is not great for cleans but the neck makes up for it. Very quiet pickups and not like reviews I've read, not sterile sounding pickups. The EMGs really bring out the natural quality of your tone woods. I had a similar Ibanez with a 81/60 in it and the sound is very different. I really thought I'd miss the 60, I'd fallen in love with it, but I do like the 85's higher output while retaining the warmth. You can also hear the tiniest of extra bite from the ebony fretboard compared to the rosewood. The other fallacy I read was that EMGs don't sound good out of solid state amps, not true. I have both Tube and Solid State and yes it sounds better out of the tube, but any guitar will. I plug straight into the amps and this guitar just roars. Plenty of distortion and sustain for days. Second playability. This Dean really shines here. It has a C Shaped neck, but a thin to medium one with a super heel less all access neck joint. The baseball bat neck and heel was the original reason I got rid of my Ibanez. The action was great out of the box, no fret buzz. I'm still having a pro check it out and set it up. The action from the factory is right where I like it; not high like on my Dean Superstrat with a Floyd Rose and not super low like on my Dean Mustaine AOD2. It plays like butter. Lastly looks and build quality. The Trans Blue finish is spectacular, mine came with no dings or dents. It feels likes it's built very well and I've always had a great experience with all my Dean guitars. The ebony fretboard and custom Deceiver Inlays really set off the look. The only difference some players might not like, which I think is an advantage for me, is you just have the very simple setup of one volume and one tone control as opposed to the standard four controls on a single cut guitar.
