Fabriq in China, handle 14 frets, plastic nut, single resonator guitar without a microphone.
The finish is not the most exemplary level look.
It is well finished in terms of violin but showing signs of sagging, glue and other finishes at the "decorative".
Unlike the new photo sries are a little different in look, but what is surprising is that even when.
Service: goes hand in hand with the finish, I ordered the brass, I REU box marked with 'brass model' over the opening but surprised it was the 'model copper' inside. Does this error has clearly made the factory and shows how little respect they bring their guitars between finishing and packaging
Even when she was pretty so I have not returned.
I also controlled the original box (part) and I hanging around for 6 months (Hello logistics at Dean!).
EDIT 26/12/2008: 1 year APRS I still did not fund the REU I have therefore taken a standard in toto and has done very well
All this earned them a good 6 that is not theft
The handle is pleasant, we have a good grip, it's not at all a round flat type Ibanez, it is slightly bigger than my acoustic guitar but it's not embarrassing at all.
Accs reasonable until the 14th fret, APRS is sport.
Enough weight (when h is even in metal!) But not crippling either.
The sound is more powerful than a folk guitar (it was done for the base even when )
Sound: well it did for the blues or bluegrass and clear in this regard is made.
I tried other models of in-store style rsonateur Fender and Johnson and they are not pictures not hold compartment of this model at Dean.
The sound is powerful enough that in lightly dea on low E string (compared to other strings), when I play long now I sometimes put caps (pianissimo) because a weary ears if not because of the strong sound projection!
The sound is a rgal, close your eyes (forget the ducks! ) And you're in, the musical history of the USA is well roots in your living room.
I have this guitar for about 6-7 months and I'm very happy, he does not go a day without my cheek. It seems some have changed the cone for a National successfully, maybe one day I cross the dj but not as the sound is very good.
I will replace the plastic nut 1 in bone at the next change of strings (d'addario of origin for that matter!) To gain sustain.
The report price is very good quality, pay at MusikProduktiv 550 (which are very nice by the way).
These Deans model "brass" or "copper" are really part of reds in the world of guitars resonators, and it has nothing to worth the detour.
Do not compare to Fender resonators or Johnson, the Deans are far above all Fender and Johnson that I tried in the store sounded like old pots with very little sound projection (I do not mean sr 3000 models well but those in the same price range). Single cone in at least APRS for tri-cone I do not know enough.
