so i was thinking about getting my first acoustic guitar. checked all over ug for the best choices and stuff. but then i found this...

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Dean-Performer-Tribal-Cutaway-AcousticElectric-Guitar?sku=516479

i was just wondering if anyone here has ever played this or knows anything about it.
and whether it'd be a good or if i should just go with an acoustic.

thanks

I think it is an ugly guitar


I think thats an ugly subjective comment

anyway TS , my experience with dean acoustics is very smilar to my experience to ibanez acoustics

pretty , but cheaply made

but do realise it's not my place to say that deans suck

always play before you buy

I personally never trust acoustic guitars made by companies reputed for making metalhead electric guitars... Just out of personal bad experience.
Guitars:
'11 Gibson Buckethead LP
'97 Fender Cali Series Strat
?? Samick Bass
'01 Fernandes Dragonfly Elite

im not sure the local shop has it (i didn't see it last time i was there)

but i was thinking if people had something good to say about it id give it a shot, and if i didnt like it, id just send it back

Compare it to the other Acoustics while you're there. Because just buying it and taking it home, you may like it, but without realising that the one right beside may have sounded and played better.

It doesn't seem to have a solid top, unless I'm missing something. You can get a solid top for $300 and it will improve the tone tenfold. See the "acoustics for under $300" thread.

BTW, every Dean acoustic I have tried felt and sounded like a child's toy. Felt like it was made of plastic, and sounded thin with a ton of buzz.

if you're not going to say it then I will. Dean acoustic guitars suck. Any company that can make an abomination such as the Dean Flying V acoustic will never make a good acoustic guitar.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

-Edit

this was a review i found:

" OMG BEST EVER
recomend this guitar for any player Best guitar that i myself have ever played and i happen to be a proffesional If your buying your first acoustic-eletric there is no better than this The tone the clarity the sleek design and the price can't be beat Recomend for anyone but especially For Highschool-teenage level guitar players playing between a year and two Best of its time"

Ya...I'm not so much experienced with acoustics but I have played a dean acoustic or two when I was looking for my first guitar, and to use a very poplular phrase in the acoustic forum for bad guitars, AVOID DEAN ACOUSTICS LIKE THE PLAUGE! There, I said it.
