no,you should get a ML there way better than Dean V's,get a dimebag if possible,the Dime-o-flag is an amazing Ml and its only 300,even though the zebra pickups are a bit lakcing

you aren't big into sig guitars...or mustaine....

but you love the headstock...
are you aware that most deans, come with that headstock?

which imo is huge... and cheap looking

if you can, try it before hand
I've heard that some of the new deans aren't all that great, but I don't have any first hand experience with those.
The older ones are pretty solid though, I just picked up a 2002 ML 7 string from a local pawn shop and I love it

**** Dean. Get ANYTHING else! please! unless you're shelling out like 800$ for a nice one!
#8
Lol before it loaded i saw it had a "matching headstock"

Knowing dean i expected the headstock to be the same size as the body

Anyways, Dean isn't that great for the price imo, and cheap deans are the worst. Save up some more and get a different v shaped guitar.

Metallica fan boy I smell.


By the judge of your posts, you don't know much about guitars. I would go with ESP or Ibanez for starter guitars.

Another thing I forgot to add, as much as I like my ML, it has MASSIVE neck dive

Strap a brick to the body, that should counteract it.

I had a Dean Dime-o-Flage

the lead tones were really good for a guitar of its price

it had barely any sustain at all though

if you play anything without distortion at all I don't recommend the Deans....that is, until you can afford a Razorback or Mustaine Custom

oh and yao151 i love the fact that you as a fan of metallica and slayer likes John Frusciante, i wish more people around here had an open mind like that


see...

Everyone... the Dean he is asking about costs $249.99 and I'm assuming that's around his budget, so quit telling him to get an $800 axe? K thnx.

Those are pretty sweet for their price. Seriously, what other guitars in that range come with Grover tuners? Obviously they're not gonna be a better guitar than say a Jackson Kelly, but they're great for their price. The finish is polyester? and the pickups aren't too shabby. Plus lower end Deans have great, smooth necks (Unless you like those damn Ibanez necks that are the thickness of a pencil..)

And no ML's do not have "MASSIVE neck dive". Their bodies are heavier than a LP, but it's spread out over a wider area so it's very comfortable to play standing up. The guitar was named after Dean Zelinsky's friend Matt Lynn. Matt loved the tone of a LP, but hated their weight and hence we have an ML today. So unless you strap a brick to the headstock... you're pretty much saying a LP has "MASSIVE neck dive"

And someone said something about the headstock looking cheap? Obviously they don't know the story about the (in)famous Dean headstock. It was designed to give a radical angle on the strings to promote tuning stability (A common problem with guitars in the late 70's), and also when the Dean is tuned to Standard 440 the headstock vibrates like a tuning fork on the D string, at least the vintage ones do (Like my '84 ML). The ugly shrimpfork style headstocks also vibrate at a certain pitch, but I can't remember off the top of my head what it is.


Man I hate when people talk about guitars on here when they've never even played the model they're talking about, let alone see one. That's the problem with UG, everyone has an 'answer' but hardly anyone gives the right one.

Buddeh, you make me lol. I tried dozens of Deans at UG in hopes of finding a good one for cheap. Hated every single one no matter how hard I tried to love it. Except the really high-end ones. And those are expensive as hell.

To the topic starter though, I'd say save $250 more, and use the $500 to get an Epi Flying V. Better quality (obligatory IMO to satisfy the quoted; IMO), and Korina is a godly wood.

Most deans are a hit and miss, especially the lower end ones. I gotta say the thing that attracts me the most is the headstocks though I love how wild they are.

Go play it, it's the only way.

Thank god. I'm all for remembering him with a tribute series, but they were just milking it.

I don't wanna jack his thread, but..
You just gotta have the right people listen to you play sometimes. As long as I play 2 shows a week, and 1 of those shows being across a state-line I can keep my endorsement. They'll send me "1.3 guitars per consecutive year" from their import line. I'm guessing every 4th year I get 2 guitars? I haven't got to order one yet but come next June I can

So the trick is to play 2 shows a week, live right at a state border, and have 1 of those shows in the neighboring state. I should try this lol except not with dean...
