I was floored by this guitar's flametop and overall design, especially for this price. The sound is very good w/ Dean's own humbuckers. The only dislike is the headstock is heavier than the body, so keeping it in playing position is diffucult. I am using "The Squid" (search for it!) to help there. This guitar has very good tone w/ the semi-hollow boy design. A Ric may have a little better "vintage" tone but adjusting your bass, treble, mid and presence controls will help you get close enough.
I play a Dean Boca 12-string electric, and have been waiting for them to make this axe. The finish is unreal. Dean proved some time ago that their pickups always sound full, albeit sometimes I have had to boost the treble on my Marshall to get some of those ringing harmonics from the high octaves. The two-tone pickups accentuate the beauty of the finish and Dean twelve-strings are irreplaceable for doubling over clean rhythm tracks and filling out hollow-sounding acoustic based songs. I strongly encourage anyone thinking about adding a twelve to consider the Sarasota; I am immensely satisfied with Dean guitars in general, and this is the Caddilac of their "Boca" line.
