I like dean, I use the evo xm. A beginner's guitar yes but I don't use it for metal, I just use it as an extra blues guitar. I like the sound of it and the way it plays. I picked it up as a spur of the moment on sale thing at guitar center and it's not really bad.

Thank you very much.

Hell yeah, I love using the Dean guitars. I'm in a band and I use a Dave Mustaine Signature VMT Angel of Death. It's the most badass guitar I've ever touched in my life, and well more than worth its price. Action is great, intonation never gets off, and the body work is flawless. My rhythm guitarist uses a Dimebag signature Razorback, his is a left hand custom, but according to him he'd rather play no other.

All in all, if your looking for fast necks and "shred 'em ups" Dean or HIGH END B.C. Rich is the way to go. Low end B.C.'s are ****in' horrible.

I love Deans man. I've always wanted to pick one up and i got a Mlx for Christmas. It has a really good clean sound on it and i like to play a lot of metal. The pickups weren't that great but I'll replace those soon, but other than that it's an awesome guitar. One of my best buys.

Ive got a 79 Dean ML special edition Blueburst, what a great guitar! Came set up good from the factory, has a C neck, pickups are pretty good for Stock, good top end and midrange, though i am going to replace those soon with duncans probably.

The guitar really feels like the Les Paul of Hard rock and heavy metal.

Remember just cause you play a dean doesnt mean your a Dime-Fanboy, the Ml came out long before Dimebag made it popular and there were plenty of other artists who have used it too. Heres a pic of me with my baby, in action at a gig.

K never mind...Cant seem to insert it as a image, heres a link.

In all honesty, Dean guitars are simply not my cup of tea. In my opinion, the pricing is rather outrageous for the value of the instrument. For example, I find it positively detestable that Dean guitars up to a thousand dollars still bear that rather annoying LFR. I can't stand it, and when guitars from Schecter and ESP have original floyds on them , I see no reason to support Dean by buying their products .

My $10.
Unquestionable.

I think they're very pointy, and aimed at a very specific genre of music. Not that that doesn't make them good guitars. I also think they've kind of **** on Dimebag's memory. I mean, 300 different types of his sig after he gets killed? I think it's in bad taste. One great one would have been enough.

What guitar company hasnt tried to capitalize on a guitarists death? you can bitch all you want about how you think its bad taste, but when it comes down to it its all marketing. Blame the company not the good instruments they make that many guitar players use.

I have a Razorback V w/ the dimebucker. it is by far the best guitar I have ever played in my 20 years of playing. The last 10 i was strictly a 7 string player up until i could'nt resist a price tag of $300 on ebay for my razorback.
#14
I really dont like deans at all except for the Dave Mustaine VM whatever (not the cheap one). I never even liked the whole V-shape until i played that one, it shreds like a dream. Thats the only dean I believe is worth the price.
#15
I played a dean i forgot which one it was but it cost like $700 it was a razorback and had a v-neck to it.

It played really nicely and felt great, seemed to be built like a tank.

i was really thinking about buying the dean shadow knight "i think its called that anyways" until i tried playing it for awhile standing up and it was so heavy after about 10 minutes of playing it,
if it was not for the weight of the thing i would have bought it though it was awesome.

As I said in your other thread
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1039676

I own 2 Deans. (Neither is pointy, btw.)

I use my EVO Special Select for playing most standard classic/hard rock...you know, cover tunes. I use my Cadillac (tuned C-G-D-A-E-G) for playing my own stuff.

In either case, each guitar gets played in a variety of styles. However, if I want to play something really twangy- say, surf/spy guitar style- I go to a hollowbody maple Jon Kammerer "butterbean" with 3 single pickups.


EDIT: Jon Kammerer's site seems to be down right now...here is some of his work pictured on other sites:
