      I bought this guitar with the full intention of rebuilding it. It was super inexpensive and gave me a good base to work with. Right out of the box it was beautiful. I changed the strings to Nickel Rockers (10s), stretched them, and plugged it in. No problem at all with the electronics. The body is basswood (a softwood). It further proves what some Luthiers have been trying to tell us for years: hardwood is not needed for sustain in a solid body electric. I played notes and chords that seemed to sing forever until I muted them. The tone was great also. I reshaped the headstock to get rid of the excess wood that Dean uses on their V shaped headstocks way past the tuning machines. The neck is off of the guitar waiting for the backside to be painted black fading into red to match the body and then clear coated. If you buy this guitar keep in mind that it will sound great, it has a great neck, but it will need a complete setup before it is completely playable: action at the nut, truss rod adjustment and neck relief, action at the 17th fret (done at the bridge), and pickup height adjustment. None of this is uncommon. You can do it your self or have it done, and you will have a great guitar.

          DEANO

          By Dick G!!!

          from Louisville, KY

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          Deano. That's what I call my brazilian burst z. Bought this thing 3 years ago and has been my priamry axe every since. Like any guitar. You have a few bugs to work out when you first get it. Pick up height, play action, little things like that. This guitar has played countless shows and been played the hell out of. A little wear on it is startin to show on it. Think I am gonna put some Seymour Ducans in it maybe a new neck. I feel this guitar is well worth keeping going. This is a great deal for a good guitar. It will do all you want it to. From metal to blues. Highly reccommended.

          By Bryan Francis

          from Austin TX

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar as my fourth (had a Peavy Predator, an Epi Les Paul and a 1958 Yamaha C-40) and I have to say it's on par with many Gibsons I've played, sustain may not be a day long but it's pretty long. Epic playability, but it could come with something more like an Ebony fretboard, but it's a bolt on so I can replace that eventually. Cost to value ratio: 7 of 5, better than a Gibson. Pickups rock, nice throaty roar on the Rhythm and a higher mid roar on the treble, with a mean pinch harm. This is one of the most comfortable guitars I've owned, and looks killer. although, check your intonation when you get it, mine came in a little off.

          Dean Z-X Review

          By Lou_Man

          from Rawlings, Maryland

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          I bought this from Musician's Friend about two years ago. When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised to see the $299.00 I spent was more than worth it. I recieved the black one and it was beautiful. Now, I've had a few guitars over the years and as the cliche' goes "you get what you pay for" just doesn't apply to this guitar. It's truly an awesome guitar for what your paying.I play heavy metal and this guitar was made for it. The bridge pup is crisp with good drive and the neck on mine is just a "touch" muddy but is fine for more bluesier tones. The fretboard is easy to navigate and is relatively fast. The only thing I did out of the box was to set it up to my liking and change strings. I changed them because unfortunately the G string was bent at the third fret. Overall this guitar is a great buy for anyone from the beginner to a seasoned rocker.

          Great Guitar

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          I am in love with my Dean Z-X. I've been having it for about 6 months, and I will never get another guitar unless it screws up. It plays everything perfectly. From Master of Puppets to Snuff. My friend tried trading me his Epiphone Les Paul for it, of course I refused. He has been playing for about 3 years, to give you an idea of how great it is. Mine is starting to short out a little, but I think it's just me. The pickups sound great, but re-stringing and tuning is a little bit of a hassle. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this guitar, for anyone.

          from Chicago

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          I got this guitar as a gift because I like the Explorer-type body. Deans are usually associated with metal/rock type stuff but really anything sounds good on this guitar, it's pretty versatile. I got the sunburst and it's really pretty looking and of course I love the shape. The only negative things about it are it's a little awkward to hold sometimes and gets sort of uncomfortable, and also the G-string on mine doesn't hold tuning quite as well as the others. Other than that I think it's a good basic guitar with a cool look at a good value.

          The Low Down

          Comments about Dean Z-X Electric Guitar:

          I've plugged into a "Dean Z-X" for many years now.I've used it in the studio for plenty of years, and let me tell you this guitar can do anything.The Zebra pick-ups are made by dean and sound staggering with a sweet distortion.The grover tuners are incredible and are reliable for well over a week.Although the strap buttons tend to slip, it's nothing strap locks cant fix.The neck feels slim when it's sanded.This mighty axe can play anything from the sweet smooth funk of g.love all the way to the gut thrashing metal of slipknot. i would strongly recomend you purchase this guitar if your begining. trust me im a pro
