I'd like it more without the dots, and just the sharkfin inlays.
I don't like the dots either.
Here you go:
Let me preface this by saying that I love Dean guitars to an extent that's almost irrational, but.....
Totally gay, the DV8 kills this guitar. What happened to his signature Seymour actives??? And why did he switch so soon after ESP made him everything he wanted, including the Axxion???
i prefer esp
Equipped with Seymour Duncan Mustaine Live Wire active pickups
get some emg's in it
Yeah, it SAYS that, but it's not what's in the picture. :zombie:
I agree with Kaz... I'd stick with ESP... I think this move is kinda.... dumb?
the ESPs were waay sweeter, glad I got one when I did. I also like how they photoshopped the pickups in AFTER the fact. notice in all 3 pictures of the guitars the pickups have the exact same reflection of light. And on the limited edition, the light on the guitar comes from the upper right while he light on the pickups comes from the direct left. silly Dean and your goofy photo manipulation skills.
Hmm, not a one has played the axe, I'd wager, but already we've had one throw in that ESP is better, sight unseen for all we know, and three bash the appearance of the pickups. Fucking hell, we're turning into HC.
I saw this coming.
Dean makes fucking amazing guitars, and I'm never surprised when someone comes along and endorses them. The only guitars I've seen that are near their price-quality ratio are Schecters, and I've yet to play an ESP that I like better than the Dean I picked up for $150 used.
Oh please don't say that....
There just went all your credibility.
My ESP is fucking tits... I play it more than my 78 LP Custom most of the time... although its a 88 custom shop Horizon, so...
Yeah there reason it looks photoshopped is because the deal was so close to Namm they didn't have final gtrs lined up until last minute, and I think theres still a few adjustments to the neck contour before it goes on sale. Dave seems thrilled to bits with it though.
Do pointy Deans still come in cases bigger than your house? I made the mistake of buying an ML when I was at college and carting that thing on the bus should have been an event on The Worlds Strongest Man.
Is the change for the same reason for ditching the Jacksons? i.e. they drastically reduced his allowance of free guitars
I'm not saying the ESPs are bad. I'm saying that the Dean is amazing, and the ESPs I've played haven't been to my taste.
Bobblehat, I actually wound up buying some case after the guitar, the Gator GW-Extreme or something to that effect, and while it's pretty big the problem is bulk and not weight. Never tried a Dean case, but unless it's significantly more than the Gator case (made of solid lead, possibly) I'm curious as to how weight could be more of a problem than 'Hey, this doesn't want to fit in my trunk!' or something similar to that.
