Dean

A mahogany solidbody with a flame maple top, rosewood fingerboard, USA DMT pickups and select hardware.

The Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe Flame Top Electric Guitar boosts an impressive pedigree of tonewoods and individual components. Its contoured mahogany body has a flame maple top that is well known for producing thick and powerful sound with lots of clarity. The set "C" neck is made of mahogany as well, which helps improve the overall sustain while providing stability. The rosewood fingerboard and 24-3/4" scale length are perfect for bending notes and playing fast lines.

Two USA DMT pickups are onboard. The USA DMT "Equalizer" Bridge Pickup has a strong output with singing harmonics. Even with its high output it still retains good high end making it a very versatile pickup that works well in many styles of music. The USA DMT "Nostalgia" Neck Pickup is a vintage style humbucking pickup great for classic rock and blues. The moderate output of the NOSTALGIA makes it a favorite for guitarists seeking classic tones with balanced tonal response.

The Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe comes equipped with chrome hardware including Grover tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge. Pearl block inlays and multiple body and heastock binding complete the list of full-blooded features.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe Flame Top Electric Guitar:

    I was hesitant to buy a "used" level 2 guitar without being able to see and play it in person. I've had this guitar for two months now and I'm really glad I took a chance. I honestly couldn't find any of the slight marks in the finish that were indicated in the photos. I am very impressed with the build quality, no sharp fret edges or any other flaws. I love the solid feel of the Les Paul style, but the slightly thinner body makes it more comfortable to wear all night. The cutaway of the ultra-access neck makes playing on the 15th fret and beyond much easier.

    The pickups are bright and full sounding. If I change anything down the road it may be the bridge pickup – but it would be preference not a need.

    Comments about Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe Flame Top Electric Guitar:

    First of all, this guitar is absolutely beautiful. Great build, nice and thick unlike alot of other LP style guitars. Only annoyance: the guitar arrived with the action super low and there was horrible fret buzz on every string and every note due to the 1st fret. Raised the action, still buzzed. Adjusted the truss rod, still buzzed. The only way it doesnt buzz is if there is extreme bow in the neck. Looking at the 1st fret it is alot higher than the others and looks like its not seated completely on the fretboard like it wasnt hammered down all the way. Once it gets properly sut up though it plays amazingly, great neck profile and I love the cutaway for the higher frets. Only other downside (at least for me) is the pickups are NOT for metal. They have amazing cleans, but with distortion they get really bassy and muddy. Seymour Duncan Black Winter cleared that right up though. I dont know if I got one that slipped through the factory unnoticed, but once I got is set up it quickly became my favorite guitar (out of Ltd ec400, Schecter Avenger Atx, and DBZ Bolero.)

      Comments about Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe Flame Top Electric Guitar:

      The Good: Beautiful finish, great pick-ups, fast neck, and quality hardware. The Bad: This is really nit picking because you really have to look hard for any flaws, but the inlays were not leveled very well, the input jack is not the greatest, and the fingerboard is supposed to be ebony. It looks more like rosewood to me. Over-all this is a gorgeous, well made instrument. Compared to the other LP style guitars I was looking at this one was by far the best. Not absolutely perfect. But then again, I didn't pay 3K, and I will put this up against anything any day. Oh, and the pick-ups are almost a spot on clone of the SD Jazz/JB combo. In a side by side comparison it was tough to tell the difference in sound.

      Comments about Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe Flame Top Electric Guitar:

      These are fantastic guitars. It's like getting a Les Paul Custom only without spending your life savings. Dean Thoroughbred Deluxe is the best value on a singlecut style guitar on the market. The sound, craftsmanship, & playability make this a true winner. I'd recommend this to anybody looking for a pro quality axe at a fair price for all the goodies it has. Buy one...thank me later. Better yet...thank Dean Guitars. Peace.
