Dean Icon Reviews
I saw my first Dean Guitar at a local music shop named Kelly's Music Mart in Roanoke Va.that carries a full line of guitars, basses, amps and accesories.
The guitar I saw was an Evo seven string that blew me away. The fit and finish were unbelievable at any price, but the asking price for this particular axe was somewhere around $449, which really surprised me. I expected to see a price tag over a grand.
After talking to the manager of the shop for a bit, I came home and hopped on the internet to check out the Dean website @ www.deanguitars.com to see what they offered.
I've always been a fan of PRS guitars, but could never justify purchasing one since I don't play professionally, and have a family to take care of. But the overall finish of that Dean seemed to be just as fine as that of any PRS I've seen, and for less than 1/4 the price.
Well, I found the Icon on the Dean website and went back to Kelley's to check the price and ordering requirements.
They were more than happy to order it for me, telling me it should take 3-4 days for it to arrive.
I gladly paid the $349 + taxes, and as promised, picked the guitar up 3 days later.
If you're looking for the most guitar with the best fit and finish for your money, you need not look any further than this axe. I would recommend this guitar for any level of player, from beginner to expert. And at the price, you can even afford to by a backup or start a collection if you so desiredBrian K.
