One of the coolest looking Deans ever!
The classic Michael Schenker black and white finish on this Dean Custom Electric Guitar is beautifully enhanced by body binding, a bound rosewood fretboard, chrome hardware, and white knobs. Thick, powerful tone comes ripping out of a pair of Schenker custom-wound zebra humbuckers. Soaring sustain is fed by the Dean Michael Schenker guitar's solid mahogany body and set mahogany neck.

This purchase was a very abivalent experience. I ordered it from MF, after some research on the Dean web site. I selected it over a Gibson V because of the higher neck setting (i.e., where the neck thickens to merge into the body which is around the 17 the vs, the 14th on Gibson LP and Vs.)When it arrived, I was severely disappointed (read: depressed). There was no booklet, no final inspection tag, nothing in the case like a manual etc, which I would have expected to come with a Gibson or Fender. It was made in Korea, not US. Only the pickups were made in US. To put this in relation, the workmanship on the paint is nothing but excellent, no complaints whatsoever here. What was dreadful was the adjustment, action and intonation of the guitar. It essentially arrived unplayable, with rusted strings (!) and laughably high action, dreadful intonation, essentially hateful, I played it for 5 mins and went to bed depressed and with black hands.Next day I put on Ace Freely Gibsons, adjusted the neck, fixed intonation and refiled the (cheaply chromed) bridge groves, and slowy, after heavy playing and TLC, this thing slowly turned into a remarkably decent instrument. I have it now for about 2 months, play it daily, re-adjust, and with a Boss SP-1 through a Mesa Boogie, it*does* get you genuine Schenker sound. The PUPs are pretty close to the 496/500 on my LP, except that the neck pickup is less muffled than the 496. On the middle position combining the PUPs, this has a really powerful drive, with tons of bottom end, and enough highs, which you can boost a bit more with any EQ if needed.All in all, not a beginner's X-mas present, but very capable in the hands of the knowledgable guitarist.
