pretty simple question, i found a dean flying v in white for 190 dollars in excellent condition, image of this guitar is the same one as this.




so is it worth it or not?

No go.

Cheap Deans leave much to be desired.

Cheap guitars usually do .

Although I think if you have the cash you could always get it, and with it being a bolt on replace the neck, tuners, bridge, pickups, electronics etc. Be a great project.


So basically, let's buy a guitar, replace everything, put in more than it's worth and spend more on polishing a turd instead of just buying a quality axe right off the bat?

If you really want a Dean TS, go with the '79 series guitars. Much better build. You could get better though.


What's your budget?

Yeah, but it's always fun to have a project

Plus, then you could get something that you know was everything YOU wanted (ie neck shape, pups, tuners, etc)

I'm with H4T3BR33D3R in saying go for the '79 tho. Then down the road you can always just slap an OFR or locking bridge/tuners/etc and new pickups on it. The stock one's are by no means bad but I've found after market parts are almost always better than stock parts.
