Comments about Dean Exotica Ultra Quilt Ash Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
At first I thought I made a mistake in purchasing this guitar. It has a sort of deep dark purple hue in the light but looks black when not directly in light. I knew this when I bought it but wasn't sure if I made the right choice. And at first I wasn't really sure I like the way it played.
But as I've compared the sound to other full size dreadnoughts side by side, and after my comparing and contrasting, I realize this guitar plays beautifully. I play in a lot of drop tunings and the low strings get great tone and bass, and the high strings sing crisp and clear.
Your string choice will play a big role in the tones this guitar projects so I recommend experimenting to see what sound you like best. I currently have some rich sounding extra light Ernie Ball's and am curious to see how some thicker gauged strings will sound on this because you really do get a nice range of tones from this guitar.
And the more I look at this guitar, I realize there's nothing else out there that looks like it. People have solid black guitars, natural tone colored, brown mahogany, but no one has anything with this shade/color of guitar that I've seen. It's a stand alone piece. If you're in dim lighting it'll look like you're playing a black guitar and when the light shines you'll be able to see the range of textures and color tones the guitar has.
Something else I'm a fan of on this guitar are the tuners. They don't feel generic or need to be upgraded. Nice craftsmanship overall on the entire guitar.
