      Comments about Dean Exotica Quilted Ash 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I don't suppose I've had this guitar long enough to write a real good review. That being said - when I opened the box, I was floored! I instantly fell in love with it. This guitar is beautiful; the finish is amazing (and mine is used). It was completely out of whack though which is to be expected so I tuned it up. Upon doing so, I noticed the strings were way off the neck. I played a while like this because I was enamored by its beauty. Then I brought it over to a friend's house and he was frightened of the neck. He said if I couldn't straighten that neck out; the guitar wouldn't be worth having. I tweeked on the truss rod the very next day. Tuned it again, tweeked, tuned, tweeked, tuned, you get the picture. When I was done, I was done. This guitar will be with me for a long time. The action is amazing now, the neck is straight as an arrow, it plays darn good! I would recommend this guitar to anyone right now. Things may change. I can't predict the future. I'll write another review if they do. O, and the price of the guitar wasn't too shabby either.

      The Best 12-String

      By Vendettagainst

      from Underneath The Bridge

      Comments about Dean Exotica Quilted Ash 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I have owned this gorgeous instrument for a year now and I can tell you it handily wallops any 12-string in its price category, and many that cost WAY more. First of all, who would want a 12-string, or any guitar for that matter, that isn't a cutaway? Unless you have superlong monkey fingers and or want carpal tunnel syndrome, youre not going to be able to use the last 6 frets on a guitar thats not a cutaway! This guitar, being a cutaway, gives you proper access to all frets, and sacrifices nothing in the tone department. I have played several other 12-strings, and this one has a distinct and joyful sound that soars to the highest levels of heaven and rumbles the foundations of the Earth all at once. Pick this baby up and the astral beings will stop what they are doing to listen to the wonderful sound eminating from this stunningly beautiful guitar.

      It is easy to play, stays in tune, and overall is of magnificent build quality.

      A big deal for me as a home recording enthusiast is that it has both 1/4" jacks AND XLR PORT!! Translation: PROFESSIONAL INSTRUMENT. I seldom see guitars with XLR out. This baby is made for prime time.

      And take a gander at the eye candy! The guitar looks like tiger-eye wood. Good lord is it beautiful. And, its got a sexy and tasteful body shape, and overall exudes an aura of joy.

      Bottom line is, unless you want to spend 2 or 3 grand, there are NO Acoustic 12-strings that can hold a candle to this fine instrument. If youre yearning for a 12-string, you can't do better. Forget the cheap ones, forget the outrageous priced ones, even the ones that cost thousands of dollars arent close to as pretty as this Dean. I have a Dean Boca electric 12-string as well and they are both just AWESOME!!!

      Opening the box is an AW! Can't help but notice "This is a Beautiful Instrument". Set up was good, could be tweked abit, nothing major. Nice light brite sound, good volumn. Electronics are great sounding plugged in. I'm vary pleased with this. Looked at several guitars in stores. had to have this one!

      one great guitar

      By itsmully

      Comments about Dean Exotica Quilted Ash 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar as a christmas present. i had been looking for a 12 string for some time now and i found this one and just had to have it. as i opened it up christmas morning i was stunned by the looks of this guitar. The inlays are just spectacular and the quilted as is insane. not to mention that the sound is top notch for the price, this is a great guitar and is just as good as any other that you will find out there.
