Singing with passion. The DMT Design pickups in this guitar offer that classic high output humbucker sound – but with plenty of dynamism too. They'll give you a wide ranging, powerful tone which will cut through any mix like a knife, but they can also sound warm and sweet with the gain rolled down. The bridge pickup creates a crunchy, tight, articulate sound which will sound spectacular with or without gain. The neck is warmer – your notes will sound fluid and free, with a fat bass response and creamy saturation. In these pickups, you've got a sound like dynamite which will ignite your riffs.
There's nothing holding you back. The smooth mahogany neck has been made to a C shape – it fits into your hand like a glove. It also boasts a warm resonance which helps to make your notes sound even fuller and fatter. It is also set onto the body, meaning it offers lasting sustain and feels comfortable at the upper frets. The pau ferro fretboard has a nice, bright resonance which helps to balance out the warmth of the mahogany for a dynamic tone. It is also incredibly sturdy – it will withstand even the most aggressive playing. These superb tools will help you create music in your own style.
It's built to last. Some guitars have unreliable bridges which send the strings out of tune – not this one. The Dean icon has a world-renowned Tune-O-Matic bridge which will keep your tuning stable indefinitely. This means your riffs will always sound the way you want them to, and you can trust this guitar to perform live. Then there's the Grover tuners, which keep your strings in a vice grip for even greater tuning stability. With this guitar in your hands, you'll be well on your way to guitar playing greatness.
