Probably Indonesia.


Maybe, my Razorback is Korean, so I thought it would be the same.

Not too sure and it's in the case right now and I can't be bothered to dig it out from under my bed...

I think it's an 09 though, but it is the one before the EMG's in it.

Well, the Z79 I used to own was an Indonesia guitar, as was the V-X. Both of those were 2010 models I think. The 30th Ann. ML I owned was MIK and was a 2008.






I'm guessing they make them from both factories or recently switched over.

Probably Indonesia.

Probably referring to their facility in Tampa, Florida.

Did you check the price point of those things?




If they're actually selling USA made guitars for 500 bucks, more power to them. I'd wonder how they'd stay afloat though!

If they're saying made in "their best shop" and meaning it, Tampa would be it.

Yeah the 500 dollar mark makes me think they'll be around 4-600 here... Closer to 600 though.

I get what you mean, but I'll believe it when I see it.







Seriously doubt it'll be a USA guitar.

Better shot of them, think they look far better here.

Clicky

Gotta scroll down a bit though.

It's possible he's overstating things- that does happen in biz.

That's what I figured.



You don't really want to hear "yeah we're making your guitar in sweatshops in southeast Asia"

Its possible he means the best Korean factories they have, for instance. Wouldn't bug me- I own several MIK guitars, and haven't been disappointed yet.

Thank... God... One thing that has turned me away from Dean guitars has been that huge ass V headstock. I mean, I am a metalhead and I like pointy guitars, but as headstock I prefer it to be discreet and not scream "look at me I neckdive like mofo". Not implying that they do neckdive but they do look rather unwieldy in my eyes. The shrimpfork pictured in this thread is actually pretty nice. Pointy but still looks like it is a natural extension to the neck.

Rather than messing with headstock malarkey, how about they build them properly?

So you mean I won't snap my headstock off with a feather now?

Hoorah.

I have a Dean VMNT Mustaine Series, the headstock is perfect and should definitely be adopted for other models.

I don’t mind the Dean headstocks much. I just want nothing to do with the company that shameless sticks Dimebag Darrel’s image on any hideous piece of shit guitar they can think of. I know Dime wasn’t the most tasteful guy to begin with, but seriously, they should have a little shred of respect toward him.

Yeah totally agree with that Jpnyc.

Just heard the price tag... (From Dean UK themselves) apparently it's going to go out at 649... Overpriced slightly?
