Could you guys help me identify what guitar is this and how much would it be worth?

The specs I know from playing it are:
Dean Pickups (seemed passive to me, neck is nice, mid is meh, bridge is HELL YEAH!!!)
Licensed Floyd Rose bridge
5-way pickup selector switch
dean wings fret inlays
24-frets

I came here because i didn't find on dean's website a guitar with this configuration (there were some that were similar, but none had this S-S-H pup setup)

here are the pics:
(and sorry for ****ty quality......it's getting dark here where I live and it's incredibly hard to take good pictures with the kind of lamps here in my house)

yeah, it's the same headstock and the same body design as the MABs, but the pickup configuration differs

it's kinda old by its looks too.....

http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Guitar/product/Dean+Guitars/SS+One/10/1 Maybe this perhaps. Not too sure though as I can't find a pic of it. Have you tried the Dean forums? Surely one of the users would know this model.

edit: Actually I reckon you just have a Dean Custom (not custom shop just the model name is custom) though once again lack of information kills.

Is there a serial number on the fretboard near the bottom somewhere? This looks like a typical late Tropical-era Dean design but I can't be sure. Also is it a bolt-on or set neck and does it have Grover tuners? With a little more information I can help you date this instrument...

I can't believe it someone with the exact same problem as me. A m8 of mine in Corfu has the same body and make of pick ups as yours, however the head stock is 3 x 3 not straight 6 as is yours. If you go to the Dean website with pics of this quality you will get a really quick response. They were unable to help me. My axe body is the same as yours, specs the same except the pick ups are not known? and I don't want to remove them. also mine has a 3x3 headstock. I cannot find a serial number anywhere? I have the Dean logo on the headstock but nowhere else, the fretboard also has the Dean wings. If anyone has any idea's or links it would be a huge help. Thanks oscaboy.
