Dean RSE Supreme Reviews 5

I got my Dean from bestpriceguitar.com in OKC, OK. I live here, so I visited the shop. I actually traded an old Telecaster neck for this guitar, so it cost me nothing. That said -- I was willing to put in a few hundred to get a higher end guitar.

I am not an accomplished guitar player, but I shopped a lot of guitars before picking the Dean. The dealer had Taylors, Martins, Ovations, Tacomas, etc. in stock and I played them all. The sound of the Dean equalled all other acoustic/electrics. The look of the Dean surpassed them all.

The Dean I bought had medium strings on it,so I thought the action would be rough, but light strings fixed that. It plays wonderfully. It does need another strap peg. I might get it adjusted one of these days. Most flaws I have encountered in sound are attributed to my playing. I can't find any fault with the guitar.

This is an incredibly beautiful guitar. I have looked it over and found no flaws. All of the inlays are seamless. Inside is clean. For what I know about guitars, it's awesome.

I am bored with "guitar bigots" who think you're an idiot if you don't shell out $3,000 for a guitar. For someone like me who plays on his couch, it is an amazing guitar. I love it. I can't imagine liking a guitar better. If I ever do play for anyone, I have no doubt that it will sound as good to them as it does to me. If you are an accomplished player, you ought to check the Dean out.
