The secrets to building great guitars are ambition, passion and a knack for thinking outside the box to create unique new designs. Dean Zalinsky proved as much by going into the luthier business in 1976 at just 19 years old. By dreaming up new, out-of-this-world body shapes and pairing them with innovative electronics including his own custom pickups, he quickly built up a well-deserved reputation as a world-class builder. Since then, Dean solid-body electric guitars have taken to the stage and studio with artists such as Def Leppard, Heart, Iron Maiden, Kansas and more.
There were three 1977 guitars that really put Dean on the map: the Dean ML, Dean V and Dean Z. The descendants of those classics are still the core of the Dean solid-body electric guitar lineup today, so you have every opportunity to experience their legacy firsthand. You'll also be joining the ranks of legendary guitar heroes with these axes - Dimebag Darrell was a big fan of the ML, and Michael Schenker has a signature Dean guitar based on the iconic V. Even ZZ Top has a link to Dean, with a commissioned wool-covered version of the Z appearing in the video for "Legs."
The Dean lineup runs from accessible, beginner-friendly models straight up to top-shelf professional, so it's easy to find one that suits your experience level and playing style. If you're a fan of tremolo, you'll be happy to find genuine Floyd Rose bridges already installed on quite a few of these guitars as well. There's no shortage of signature models, so if you're up to the challenge, you can play a tribute to your favorite rocker with instruments like the Dimebag Razorback DB or Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar.
No matter what, the best person to decide which guitar you should play is you. That's why you owe it to yourself to take a close look at what Dean solid-body electric guitars have to offer. With so many options on the table, it's a sure shot that you'll find the perfect axe - and since they're all made to the same high standards, you can have absolute confidence in any guitar you choose from Dean's catalog.
