Many folks remember Dean's great guitars in the 70s and 80s. I personally remember the ads just as well! The good old days are back thanks to the Time Capsule Series. Built just like the originals right in the US of A. Great quality and killer looks. This Z is an absolutely gorgeous example of guitar building. The Explorer shaped body is mahogany and features a gorgeous flame maple top. Pictures don't do it justice! The 24.75 inch scale mahogany neck features a bound ebony fingerboard with abalone dot inlays and 22 frets. Dual USA Time Capsule pickups deliver killer tone. A Tuneomatic bridge, Grover Rotomatic tuners and a string through V tailpiece keep it all rock solid. This example is finished in a gorgeous cherry red. The finish is accentuated with a single layer of top binding. Great USA made quality. If you are looking at a Gibson, Jackson or any other exotic pointy guitar, you owe it to yourself to check out this Z!

This Dean plays great and has good tone. The V shaped neck feels just like the old Deans. Good playability and feel. The dual humbuckers sound awesome. Everything works as it should. This guitar was collector owned and is very clean. It shows only some light pick and clearcoat scratches. Very nice. Comes in original hardshell case.

I'm impressed by the quality of these new USA Deans. Some folks would say they are nicer than the originals! A world class guitar. A new one will cost you $2700.00 if you can find one. Save big on this one!
