Affordable Rock Machine With Iconic Body Shape Created for Increased Sustain and Resonance
The left handed Dean MLXL Classic Black electric guitar is the latest of a long line of ML guitars designed by Dean Zelinsky all the way back in 1977. Dean came up with this iconic design in their quest to create the guitar with the ultimate amount of resonance and sustain. By combining the flying V and explorer body shapes, Dean spread the mass of the guitar over a large area, giving the MLX Classic Black Lefty a lively and robust tone that sounds like no other guitar.
The lightweight basswood ML shaped body has served rock and metal’s elite for decades, and with a comfortable C-shaped maple neck with a Jatoba fretboard, a 14“ fretboard radius, and Dean’s distinctive headstock shape, the Dean MLX classic black lefty delivers incredible comfort and silky smooth playability.
The Dean MLX CBL gets much of its intense rock tone from its proprietary Dean DMT design humbucker pickups. With an aggressive yet balanced tone, these DMT designed pickups strike the perfect tonal balance between hot lead and crushing rhythm tones. With select hardware appointments including string-thru body construction, Grover tuners and a Tune-o-matic-style bridge, you can't go wrong with the Dean MLX!
