Are atrocious abominations amongst avid appreciators of aural... Okay, I can't finish the sentence with alliteration.


These made me lose the few remaining scraps of respect I had for Dean =/

Discuss.

NOTICE: This is my opinion, btw. Some people may like them, and I respect that.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Yep, they look stupid compared to the last ESPs he had (with the quilted tops) and I have never played a Dean I liked...

doesnt ibanez have a guitar like this?


Ibanez have made a couple of different V models but they're all discontinued, if you want an Ibby V you'll have to keep an eye on the used markets.

In all fairness the deal hardtail looks fairly conservative instead of bloody outrageous styling.

body looks disproportionally small, headstock is ugly, i like the body shape though just needs to be bigger

I think he means the fact that it's like... Tiny.

ive always hated the dean headstock. they ruin the look of an otherwise great guitar. and if it wasnt for those retarded headstocks, the new amott v's would still be sweet.

I've never played a Dean I liked, and these ones look absolutely hideous
I can't stand the headstock or the way the ones I've tried played
The only ones I have any motivation to try are the Dave Mustaine (albeit minus an FR) ones or the Rusty Cooley sig
ohai little sig.

^^
the Mustaine sig is really good actually. Best Dean I've played, all the others felt really... flimsy

I guess I'm the only one that likes the new body style? It's a twist on a classic shape, but not over the top with a million points.

I don't care for the red one with the Floyd. I kinda wish that one came in black... But I prefer the old ones. I like that classy look.
