Think of Dean Guitars and you might think of bone fide rock and rollers wielding their products on massive arena stages or in high cost videos but you might be surprised to find out just how wide-ranging and varied their product line is. Obviously they offer all number of electric guitar and bass designs, 7 and 8 string models and left-handed options, but they also offer a surprising full range of acoustic instruments, resonator guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and banjos.
The watchword here is uncompromising, from signature wishbone headstocks and all American style plus some of the innovative and recognisable designs in the guitar world make their products unique yet there is also something highly traditional about Dean’s approach, making them feel more classic than modern.
Since 1976 Dean instruments have been seen in the hands of everyone from Heart, Kansas and The Cars to stalwart Southern rockers Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top and more recently Dave Mustaine and the late Dimebag Darrell.
As with all leading guitar manufacturers Dean will have something to fit all requirements from the first guitar purchased on a tight budget to the jobbing musicians tool of the trade right through to the high standards demanded by the top flight professionals.
With Dean Guitars, the rock connection might initially get you through the door but the range and diversity on offer is why you keep coming back.
