WooHoo! I am FINALLY back to being a Dean owner!!!

2009 Vendetta 4.0 "Tiger eye"

It's good to be a "valued Customer at your local music store! $275 for this beaut! Been played like twice! Not a scratch, ZERO fret wear! Not a single dead note, and thew action can be set quite low without any buzzing!

Not too thin, not too thick of a neck...1/2 way between my old Schecter C-1 and my Ibanez RGR421EXFM

Mahogany body, Book matched quilt maple top AND back. Neck through with what seems to be a 5 piece neck!

Enough room between the tuners and nut to do your Ironman behind the nut bends...best Grovers I have had yet!

I am surprised that the Dean "Time Capsule" pick-ups sound as good as they do...and with a decent amount of gain! They might just stay in there!

New strings, a truss rod adjustment, and intonation done (along with a little fretboard oiling and polish). Plays great!!!
Now just need to get some Sperzels and strap-locks.

Pre-requisite pron:



Ibanez RGR421EXFM, Michael Kelley Vex NV, Ovation Celebrity. Carvin V3
Peavey 412M w/Eminence Wizards & Swamp Thangs, Rocktron Hush Super C, Furman PL-8C,15 band EQ, Boosta grande, ISP Decimator, Dano EQ, Ibanez TBX 150,TC Elec Polytune

But theres no reason why i cant be free like a raspberry stuck to the back of a horny elephants ass.

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

Off topic, but i'm digging the modded grill on the V3. I bought the polished stainless for mine, but yours definitely has a unique look. Congrats on the guitar!

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

I absolutely love Dean's Time Capsule pickups haha, the new 4.0's are a serious guitar throughout and play great. They also offer them with OFR's for like $100 more or something new. Hey, you got your wings back!

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.
