Ash wood has been used for guitar bodies for years, used on many electric guitars due to its hard strength and stunning tonal capabilities. The tonewood is surprisingly loud and bright, adding a strong midrange punch and crisp, warm bass to the overall tone. The addition of a natural 5A grade flamed maple top creates an incredibly captivating aesthetic, enhancing anyone’s stage presence. Not only does the maple top look stunning, it also adds a subtle amount of warmth and brightness to the overall tone for a sparkling high-end.
For the 8-String Signature Cooley Guitar, a set of EMG's 808 humbuckers provides players with the ideal tone, presence, and dynamics needed for all 8 strings. Based on the iconic EMG 707 humbuckers, the 808's eliminate the problem with a muddy F# string, which usually lacks in rich harmonics and sonic definition. Its alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils are perfect for beefing up the low tones, while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register for an excellent amount of response and tightness.
By incorporating a string-thru body construction, the Signature Rust Cooley Guitar features an improved tonality and sustain. This is achieved by transferring vibrations and resonance from the string to the body as they go over the tune-o-matic bridge and passes through the ash wood.
This Signature Dean Guitar also features a maple neck coupled with an ebony fingerboard, equipped with Cooley’s custom spec'd profile and 24 frets for added comfort and versatility. The maple tonewood provides the overall tone with an incredibly bright quality, offering plenty of sweet characteristics to make the high-end shine. The addition of an ebony fingerboard enhances the natural qualities of the maple, creating plenty of depth and midrange punch to suit a variety of playing styles.
Along with its incredible comfort and tonal options, the Dean Guitar features a selection of high-quality hardware to provide an incredibly stable performance. Its Grover tuners, tune-o-matic bridge, and graph tech nut ensures the Dean Rusty Cooley Guitar remains in tune, even against harsh playing style, while its D’Addario strings provide excellent playing comfort and a long lifespan.
