I bought a Dean East Andes Exotica for 200 used off Craigslist...right after looking for a hooker JK...anyways yea...I love it! Best 200 dollar investment I have ever made. It still dont sound quite as good as my 200 dollar starter Yamaha but thats prolly just cus I have played ONLY my Yamaha for 4 years...until I bought the Dean
