    Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB4 Gauntlet Electric Guitar:

    I Bought this guitar for my son as he wanted a dean with a Floyd rose to add to his arsenal
    Immediately we both were surprised by how well it was put together and finished The guitar came set up and ready to play The pickups are a little flat on sound but Ive come to expect that with most Chinese made guitars. Overall - I'd give this guitar a 4 out of 5 only due to the pickups but after I change them - it will be a 5 :-)

      Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB4 Gauntlet Electric Guitar:

      My 2nd Dean and based on this guitar, I'll be buying more.
      Unpacked it, lowered the action a bit, tuned it up and WOW!
      I play professionally (mostly hard rock/classic rock) and this fits the bill perfectly.
      I love the smoothness and shape of the neck. Once set, it stays in tune when using the tremelo.
      The raised top is very stylish. The tone of the stock pickups is wonderful. Very chunky with a slight crispiness. High output as well.

      Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB4 Gauntlet Electric Guitar:

      When I first got this guitar, it was love at first sight. The finish is absolutely astounding; appealing aesthetically beyond most guitars I've seen. Considering its price, the tone is amazing, even with the stock pickups. Now, you could trade out the stock pickups for something better, but in my opinion, it sounds just fine with the ones it comes with. I had no regrets on getting this guitar, it looked even better in person than it did in the images. The Floyd Rose was also a nice touch, keeping it in tune while you shred with some tremolo. I'm impressed with this Michael Angelo Batio guitar, and I'm also proud to say it's the best guitar I've ever purchased.

      If you're really interested in playing fast and sounding good while you do it, this is definitely the guitar for you.
      Some tracks that were "eargasm" worthy with this guitar:
      Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
      Steve Vai - For the Love of God
      Dio - Holy Diver
      Iron Maiden - Powerslave
      Van Halen - Eruption + Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
      Firewind - The Fire & the Fury
      Dream Theater - In The Name of God
      (And of course)MAB - Burn

      Hopefully this gives anyone looking at this item an idea of what this guitar sounds best with playing. Might I also note that tuning this may be a chore, though it is very much worth it. :)
