For the money, you get a great deal with this guitar. The wood is beautiful and is comfortable to play, although its not the easiest guitar to play. The action is a little high but not too bad. Players who have been playing for some time but are not experts should definitely take a look at this guitar. For those who are guitar-playing veterans, this guitar may be a little sub-par. The reason I say this is, it does not have the sustain as high end guitars. Its highs and lows are not super tight. The finish on the guitar is not perfect, but that is what happens when not made by hand. All that being said, that is what the guitar is like when compared to high end Taylors of Martins. I do believe it does hang with the lower end Taylors, and I think you get a better deal with this guitar. This is a good guitar, and you get more than what you pay for. I bought mine 3 years ago without playing it before hand, just went off looks. I was never disappointed, but as I become a better player, hearing more acoustics over the years, and playing more higher-end guitars, I see this is not quite at the top. BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE. its less than $600. One thing to note, the picture Musicfriend has posted of this guitar is the old version. The newer version is slightly different. The differences: -abalone rosette is a bit different -tuner heads -white binding is now turtoise binding -no buil-in tuner

My wife bought this guitar for me, cause she thought it was pretty...which it is, but pretty and Playability aren't the same. The electronics are not suited to the bodystyle and the neck and fretwork are really sub-par. All in all, I played (or tried to play) this guitar for about a year and basically just gave it away to a beginner guitar. It's cheap for a reason.

Quite blown away

By Tamabama

from Florida

Quite simply looking for a gigging acoustic to play out and this beat out Taylors costing twice as much.Acoustic tone is peculiar thing and I have like a nice full articulated sound. Cannot stand guitars that sound like banjos nor bass that is all boomy and undefined.The top end is full with a shimmer, the bass is well articulated with each not sounding nicely.Gigged it and very pleased.

When I went into the music store to try out their newest guitars, I was a little leary against playing this guitar because it's so nice looking. Fortunatly, I tried this puppy out and I was floored! I'm very picky with acoustics and I was a die-hard Alvarez guy until I tried this sweet number. The bass strings give out a nice mellow tone without sounding too woofy and the treble strings sparkle without sounding too folky. It's like Dean reached into my head and pulled out my ideal acoustic (totally a FLCL reference)! I'm a big fan of Dean's electric guitars (especially the Dean From Hell) and now I love their acoustics too! Overall, it's the best acoustic guitar I've yet to play and a definite must-have guitar!

Compare to other brands, I'd say

By Young Park

from DENVER, CO

I've got a damaged one and will got a new, however this guitar has awesome sound like Taylor or Martin. My previous was Martin OMC-15E, which the price is over thousand dollars, but this Dean guitar has much rich and clean sound. Looks very fabulous and I would highly recommend to the stage players.

Superb

By Paul Schondra

from Hackettstown, New Jersey

I had a Guild guitar previously to this one. The sound was great. It was an old one. about 40 years old, but the sound was "WOW". The I purchased this ERES Dean and with the elixir strings that came with it could not beleive the superior sound that came from it. The price was very reasonable,too. I am beyond very pleased withthe sound and construction of this instrument.By the way, it is used with the worship team at our local church and has been a very positive addition to the team.

If your guitar playing sucks...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

If your guitar playing ability is a litlle lacking like mine, this is a great guitar for you! I'm telling you, somehow this guitar is different than any other guitar I've played. Easy and forgiving with beautiful sound. I don't get it, but it was like magic for me. It offers hope and makes bad players sound pretty darn good.

This is one amazing guitar

By MamalovesDean

from Boston, MA

I bought this guitar used and like my other Deans, I'm so pleased. The tone is rich and full and plays like a million bucks. It's a bit big for me but still easy to play. It's also the most beautiful acoustic I've ever seen!
