Comments about Dean Rusty Cooley 8-String Electric Guitar:

After deciding to enter the realm of 8 strings, I was torn between this and the Ibanez Prestige model. I've been playing Prestige RGs exclusively for the last ten years, so I was leaning towards getting the 8 string version. After much consideration, I decided to go with the (much)less expensive Dean, and in no way am I dissapointed. This thing plays excellent, sounds excellent, and comes loaded with professional grade hardware and electronics. I would have paid considerably more, but I'm glad I didn't have to!
