Loaded with two DMT Design humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck position, the Dean ZX delivers a powerful and punchy tone with plenty of low end rumble and high-end sparkle. Perfect for a range of playing styles and music genres, the DMT Design humbuckers particularly excel when used for hard rock and metal styles.
The ML is an impressive body shape which is guaranteed to make a strong statement on stage. The ML shape was created by Dean Zelinsky in 1977 with the idea of spreading the mass of the body over a large area, in order to maximise sustain and improve tone. The ML was named posthumously with the initials of Zelinsky's friend Matthew Lynn who had died.
The MLX's body is crafted from lightweight poplar, which provides a high frequency response, as well as an overall light tone with sparkling highs. Poplar is a soft tonewood and therefore offers a mellowed tone with some warmer lows.
The Dean MLX Flame Top guitar has a smooth, C-profile, maple neck for that extra comfort. Fitted with a bolt-on neck, the guitar can achieve sharp and firm metal tones with ultimate snap and twang.
The neck is made from maple, which provides bright tones with plenty of twang, as well as excellent levels of sustain. The neck is also paired with a jatoba fingerboard for enhanced articulation, as well as a beautiful, natural wood grain.
Established in 1976 in Illinois by Dean Zelinsky, the Dean Guitar Company fast became the "go to" manufacturer for hard wearing distinctive guitars.
