how good are these guitars?
I love them. Thick necks though, so if you're used to Ibanez you won't like it.
The Dean USA models are amazing. Comparable to PRS in my opinion. The Hardtail Select is your average japanese guitar. Still pretty good, though. I'd play a Hardtail Select over an Epiphone Les Paul.
i was looking at the select vibrato ones... they seem to have everything id want in a guitar 3 way switch, 2 tone and 2 volume knobs, tremolo, 2 hbs (always open to upgrading) and i still have not tried a dean neck... im use to fender and epiphone though...
