I have been shopping around for a while looking for a "friendly" priced electric guitar. I wanted something that I didn't feel I had to wash my hands before every time I touched it. A little bit of quality wasn't something I excluded from my quest either. I came across the Dean MLX guitar in florescent yellow... Which was not really my color, or my style in guitars "I like more 'classic' looking guitars". However, I found the price so tempting and disliked the look so much I just had to try it out. It arrived to my house today "it was 22 degrees today" and the guitar was so cold it almost hurt to touch it for a few minutes... That being said, it didn't warp at all, which is pretty impressive to me. The first thing I inspected was the neck. The frets on the model I received are almost perfect to me. They are low, and don't have sharp edges at all, and they feel exactly like the frets on a PRS SE guitar I used to own, which was a more expensive, but incredible instrument. The neck has either no or very little finish on it, some people call it a baseball bat neck, but it doesn't bother me. I play mine through a VOX AC4 and believe it or not the sound it reminds me of the most is Pete Townshend's early live sound, not a really sharp sound like I would expect. The one thing I have a complaint about is that the toggle switch knob came cracked off, and it won't go back on the metal switch itself, but that's not a huge deal for the price you are getting it for. I was also surprised to see it has real Grover tuners on it, and they keep the 12 gauge strings I use in tune very well. Overall, in my opinion, it's easy worth the money.

well, i got to play this today, i've wanted to try it forever! i got my hands on it and it wasnt bad, pickups were nice, the hardware looks cheap. though that wasn't a problem, reaching the 22nd fret was a chore. if you're a rythym chruncher then this is your guitar, but myself i couldnt see trying to shred it. kudos for the cool look though!

I have used this guitar at my local guitar store, and it is quite good. The pickups are good too. Other then that, there is bad news. This guitar feels extremely cheap, including the materials. One of the tone knobs fell off, and the jack to plug in your cable was loose, 30 seconds after I started playing. It is a great beginner guitar, but not for people who have been playing for a long time. I have been playing for around 4.5 to 5 years. It is good value though for the money. Also, there should be more colour choices. The green and yellow choices don't look good at all. It gets out of tune very often, and the tuners are cheap and sloppy. Overall, it's an okay guitar, but it is a good marketing guitar. There should be a minimum of 3-4 colour choices.
