Dean’s X series offers some of Dean’s most popular body styles–the ML, V, and Z–at an affordable price. But they do not skimp on components, with a pair of high-output Dean humbuckers, Grover tuners, a Tune-o-Matic bridge. Dean style and dependability are an added bonus.

The Dean X Series
The Dean X Series offers ML, V and Z style guitars at a price that would possibly not break the bank. These guitars feature maple necks, rosewood fretboards, dual humbuckers, and quite a few Dean mojo, and are built to rock–perfect for beginners and veterans alike.
The VX features a lightweight basswood body. Basswood is great for heavier rock and metal styles, delivering a nice even tone that feeds a dirt pedal (or a dimed Marshall) nicely.
Bolt-on neck construction provides an affordable alternative to set-neck or thru-body designs. The benefit of this design is that if you do have any neck trouble down the line, you’ll be able to easily replace it.
The VX’s maple neck features an ultra-playable 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, with classic dot inlays.
Dean Humbucker Pickups
To capture the biting tones of vintage Deans, the company includes two of its standard humbuckers, in black-and-white “zebra” style for looks as good as the sounds. And what to anticipate tonally? These pickups must provide more than enough bite for modern styles, along side quite a few low-end and midrange definition. The usual three-way selector allows bridge, neck, or a combination. Each pickup gets a volume pot, and they share the tone keep an eye on.
If you play guitar then you know what this means–solid, dependable tuning from the industry standard. These guitar machines are a triumph in engineering and style, with a gear ratio of 14:1, perfect gear meshing, and zero backlash and slippage. The gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
The Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru body design provides serious sustain, along side precise intonation for your tuning preference. The classic v-shaped plate mirrors the headstock wings for some nice vintage Dean style.
