Re: Dean Guitars? Gibson V?
Man, I didn't want to say it, but you're right on with the Head stock being a mis match. It just doesn't do justice to the rest of the V. Otherwise, I love it that it's made of Korina, etc, and the features..
That said, I'm a huge Dean lover at least with the first US deans I saw in mthe 70's and 80's. I always had a thing for those guitars. I had the chance many, many years ago to get a Dean V by the guitarist for John Cougar Melloncamp (Larry Crane) who is from my hometown of Seymour In, and his mother had a guitar shop here. He used to teach there, and he sold a Dean V to a friend of mine that had a custom pickup made by Larry Dimarzio (he told me that anyway) in it. I wanted that guitar, but it was too much money at the time at like 500 bucks, and I didn't like the color which was RED!!!! Man, I'd give twice that much for it now in a second..LOL
Anyway, I loved that guitar.. Dean had this other USA guitar that's all black with a Real Floyd made in the stats and I can't remember the name of it, but it was all black with cool chrome pickups and hardware. I wish I could fine one because they were not that expensive for an American guitar made by Dean really. Just looked cool too, but the clincher for me is those necks! That V neck just fits me.. and all V's are cool.. :-)
