Dean's having sensible headstocks?

Hey guys, just was browsing the nets today and found these...

http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-an...assic-Black/PS2

http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-an...assic-Black/PS3

http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-an...assic-Black/PS1

http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-an...assic-Black/PS6

Might be old news to some, but it appears Dean are trying to move away from the 14 year old metalhead who likes pointy guitars thing.

Loving the look of the V and the ML myself... Anyone have any idea how much they'll be when we finally get them in the UK and Europe?

US Prices are only 549 at the moment, so I'm curious.

They have had those headstocks on some of their guitars for a while now, the only ones I can think of are the Mustaine signatures.

They look good IMO, but some of their guitar shapes just look weird with that headstock.

Yeah true, that was cause if Dave wanted to join their company, they needed to do that headstock for him.

I've not seen that headstock on any other Dean I must admit...

The Cadillac just looks wrong without the big V headstock... Even the old "shrimp fork" would be better, IMHO.

And I think the V variants, like the ML need that visual counterpoint as well.

(FWIW, I'm 45.)

The ML's do look a lot better without that stupid headstock.

Their superstrats have had that headstock style for a while, I believe. Also Michael Angelo Batio signature model does, for example.

I like the shrimpfork headstock.




Maybe not on a Stratocaster or an LP but it fits for the traditional Dean shapes.

I like it too, just not as much as the big V.

So do I.





Mine is an early 80s model so I believe it would be the Series II?









I think it's slightly smaller than the original series 1 Vs.

Don't like that as much as the six in a line, but it depends what model the shrimpforks on

I like the shrimpforks for the minis and the cadillac. That's about it.





I'd take the classic V over them both anyway.

I like that head stock, actually I like the look of the whole guitar. Which is a first for me and Dean, most of their other models look like something a 13 year old metal fan would own.

I just never understood it because if you don't like the headstock, just buy a regular Explorer or a Regular Gibby V.







Anywho, back to the point... That V headstock is rock and roll. Now I need another Dean. Hopefully a V... Thanks guys, MORE GAS. Just what I need.

Don't think we are

Really do like the 6 in a line on that thing, according to Eric (Who's product manager of Dean) they're going to be made "In the best factories" that he has, I assume this means Korea?
