Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Awsome Finish And Trim

Cons

  • Some sharp edges

Best Uses

    Comments about Dean Exotica Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar far exceeds my expectations for an instrument in this price range. It plays nice and looks great. I have noticed a few sharp edges around the bridge but they can easily be rounded off. Musician's Friend made the purchase very easy and the shipping to Canada was very fast at affordable. I would defiantly buy another guitar from these guys.

    Exotica Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar

    By Tim Abke

    from Ohio

    Comments about Dean Exotica Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Very nice guitar. One of the best looking guitars I have owned.
    The Aphex preamp is excellant. It brings a already full great sounding guitar to another level. The xlr plug is a bonus. I can plug direct into the house leads without a DI.
    Beautiful guitar, weld build body with nice edge accents. Looks better in person than is photos.

    Only complaint is the fret dressing was very poor. They missed this one at final quailty control. I actually sliced open my fingers on the frets. Nothing a little filing and sanding would not fix.
    Great value. May need some extra work here and there but very nice end product. Just be prepared.

    Nice Guitar

    By Bean

    from Fort Walton Beach, Florida

    Comments about Dean Exotica Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing off and on for 17 years and just starting to play venues, this is a smart looking guitar, has great tonal qualities, and has not failed yet. I also tweaked the bridge (lowered ) for my preference with no fret buzz. You can spend thousands on name brands, with this little gem in the right hands...she will definitely deliver.
    The Dean Eubinga Exotica although made in China has great tuners, decent electronics, although I did have some feedback from an amp with the volume up but a simple shift in distance no problem. Takes 9 volt for APHEX which came with the guitar. Neck thickness is great (thin) fret width not so wide. The pegs at the bridge are solid wood they have a tendency to slip during string changes so a little more effort is required to ensure proper seating, reason down one rating otherwise nice features.
    Has wonderful wood grain, nice mother of pearl dot inlays. The binding is amazing, but it does obscure the side dots that could be a challenge for beginners. Nice overall workmanship.
    I bought this used and I could not find a blemish, I have played it everyday since with a grin.

    Amazing Guitar

    By Gunner-HN2Qy

    from Near Detroit

    Comments about Dean Exotica Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is not a biased opinion since i own other brand name guitars as well as Dean, I purchased this guitar and was absolutely floored with the big sound that came ringing out of it....i do however recommend installing new high end strings.....the sound is even sweeter....The Aphex electronics is amazing sounding as well, the neck is smaller in diameter which would also make this guitar a great starter instrument,I would recommend this acoustic to anyone.
