Yet another great guitar from Dean. Feels somehow slim on hands, classic design and i don't know how others feel but i think it's unique, well yes its little similar to les Paul. Talking about sound, hmmm...it's quite good, very good actually in that price range, my advice-pair this guitar with a good and powered amp to get the most it, only issue- it doesnot work great with cheap amp. overall don't forget the name "DEAN" yeah!! Feel that.
