This guitar is Superb

Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

Sorry for not doing the pro's, con's, and best uses. I don't think a list can speak for this instrument really. This guitar is such a good buy for such a good price. It sounds great, plays great, feels great, and looks great. Anything else you could ask for would be well answered by this one. The aphex enhancer is definitely a cool feature. Only thing that got to me was that it looks a little different in person (i ordered the see through black) and it looks much more dark and er, glossy than how the picture looks and the hardware (just the tuning knobs pretty much) are gold instead of black/gray whatever. No big deal though, once I got used to the difference I realized its really beautiful. If you don't make much profit over time, but you want a guitar asap that will seem to keep you satisfied then I say go with this one.

This guitar is Superb

Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

Sorry for not listing pro's, con's, and uses. I don't think a list of features or traits can honestly speak for this or any instrument. Took me so long, but eventually when I was able to afford an acoustic-electric guitar I took my chances choosing this one cause it just seemed promising, and if I didn't like it I could get a refund. Well boy was this a great buy. This guitar feels great, plays great, sounds great, anything else you could probably ask for will probably be well answered by this guitar. I bought the see-through black and it looks a little different in person, at first i felt shameful of how it looked but once I really got used to the difference I realized its still very very beautiful. Only thing thats really different is that the hardware (pretty much just the tuning knobs) are gold and not black or however they look online. No big deal to me. Aphex enhancer is really cool, so if you buy from Dean I just advise getting one of the guitars with it installed. Thanks for reading.

      Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

      The Dean Performer acoustic-electric with Aphex sounds and plays fantastic out of the box. However, I always set up my guitars by adjusting the two way truss rod for neck straightening, setting the action, and shaving the nut to my flavor. The Dean Performer comes with D'Addario EJ16 light phospher bronze strings which are perfect for the body size and tension balance to get correct resonance. Plugged in, the pick up sounds crystal clear coming out of my amp - with or without the aphex, and the tuner is solid. Unplugged, the guitar lights up the room with a perfect balance of low bottom and a mid-high range that cuts right thru the teeth. The onboard equalizer allows you to create the perfect sound you want to achieve for each song. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or a professional this guitar deals, pure and simple. Everyone who has come in contact with this guitar has been blown away by the rich texture this guitar resonates into the air whether it be unplugged or plugged into the amp. Buy it.

      Okay guitar

      Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

      First off I noticed that the inlays on the neck are not 2 pieces of abalone,but rather 1 piece with dark material to give the illusion of say, a gibson hummingbird.Second,I got the flame maple,which is nice but is very bright sounding and feeds back easy.I replaced the plastic pegs with some ebony bridge pins,and it added a lil more depth.Overall a very bright sounding guitar.I also tried the aphex switch,doesn't do anything except make it more echoey,nopt a very desirebale tone.All in all,I would get a guitar with mahogany back for more warmth.

      Sonically amazing...

      By Nakia LaCaze

      from New Orleans

      Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

      Especially considering how absolutely affordable Dean guitars are, the sound quality and playability are just short of amazing!

      This guitar is attractive, the tonality is wonderful, the feel is full-on buttery, and an added bonus is the gray & black flame maple finish matches my flagship electric perfectly.

      One bit of icing on the cake was the built-in tuner which allows me to tune up spontaneously, with no need for my trusty pitch-pipe (which I have in all my other acoustics' cases), and I was ecstatic that the low end is both powerful and crystal-clear, which seriously rivals the overall tone of my $2K Guild acoustic.

      Also, the Aphex electronics provide a very good mixer-input, with the phase-inverter giving you added clarity if needed. (definitely keep the Enhancer ON for proper presence)

      The only downside I can see is that unlike my Fishman electronics in my Guild, it doesn't have a notch-filter for bucking low to midrange feedback in hairy situations. Other than that, this is a phenomenal instrumenta VERY smart investment!

      Pleasantly Surprised

      By James Lawrence

      from Southern CA

      Comments about Dean Performer Flame Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Aphex:

      I purchased this guitar during the Columbus Day weekend sale. I wanted an acoustic guitar in order to get back into playing and build up my finger strength. I've always been an electric guitar player and a friend suggested that I'd probably play more if I had an acoustic to keep by the sofa and pick up when the mood strikes. I wanted an acoustic-electric and I'm very happy I picked this guitar.

      The guitar arrived very quickly and well packaged to avoid damage. I was really taken at how much "bling" this guitar had that wasn't really evident in the photos. It's really a beautiful guitar! I let it rest a couple days before adjusting the neck a little for some slight bowing. The built-in tuner is OK and I use it to tune one string, usually A or D, and then tune the rest by harmonics. When tuned, the sound has a lovely ring to it. A friend came over and I hit just one chord and he said, "Man, that sounds great!". The clear sound makes it easier to learn songs by ear. The D'Addario strings are to be credited as well as the design of the sound box.

      It is a very satisfying guitar to play and it's really helping to build my finger strength and callouses and it sounds great! Oh yeah, the BBE sonic enhancements are pretty nice too when amplified although I mostly just play acoustic since I keep it by the sofa to play during the evening.

      For a budget guitar, I think anyone would be pleased with the look and sound of this guitar. Thumbs up!
