Get the vintage tone without the vintage wear and tear, and forget about that boutique price tag. The Dean '79 Series 1979 was a great time for Dean Guitars. Some of Rocks' greatest players played Dean to include: Kansas, ZZ Top, Heart, The Doobie Brothers, Triumph,The Cars, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, the list goes on. Dean Guitars builds these beauties to the original specs of the original 1979 Deans, which are now collectibles on the open market. The '79 series uses the Series 2 headstock and has the same look and feel as their predecessors of the seventies. The '79 series is available in finishes originally offered in the 1979 Dean catalog. Mahogany Body with Maple Top. As with the original models, Dean uses a mahogany body for its contemporary '79s. Mahogany is a common choice for electrics, dependably delivering a warm, full tone with plenty of punch and sustain. The maple top focuses the mahogany tone, imparting clarity to your notes/chords, and a little extra high-end bite. The '79 ML features a set mahogany neck, which imparts all the well-known advantages of that style: a warmer overall tone with extended low-end response, wicked sustain, and easy upper-fret access (enhanced even further by the '79s cutaways). The 24-3/4-inch scale neck features a rosewood fingerboard with abalone dot inlays. Dean Humbucker Pickups - to capture the biting tones of vintage Deans, the company includes two of its standard humbuckers, in black-and-white "zebra" style. The standard three-way selector allows bridge, neck, or a combination. Each pickup gets a volume pot, and they share the tone control. The '79's Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru body design provides even more sustain, along with precise intonation for your tuning preference.
