I love this guitar.This is a quality guitar at a great price.Delivery was prompt as well.The guitar wasn't packed all that well, but it still arrived without any blemishes on it.In fact, it arrived set up perfectly as well, which is not something that happens very often when buying a new guitar.The action was nice and low with no fret buzz.

The only think I can think of that I don't like about this guitar is the tremolo.It's a floyd rose 'licenced' tremolo, which means it's probably a crappy Chinese knock-off.It still works just fine, but you can feel it's a bit rough when adjusting the tuners at the bridge. I can't knock any stars off for it, as it says as much in the product description.If you're picky about tremolos, just be aware of this.Also, I don't think you can install a d-tuna on this bridge either.

This guitar suits my needs perfectly.I haven't stopped playing it since I received it.

Product Description:
Dean's ML may be available in an array of bright colors, but when it comes down to it, nothing says "put in your earplugs" like an all-black satin finish. And this axe is equipped to deliver on its dark promise, with set-neck sustain, low-noise and high-output EMG active pickups, and a Floyd Rose trem. Get ready for battle.

Mahogany Body
Dean uses a mahogany body for this this ML, as with many of its guitars.Mahogany is a common choice for electrics, dependably delivering a warm, full tone with plenty of punch and sustain. And of course there's that lightning-themed finish, sure to help coax a little electricity from your fingers on the fretboard.Set Neck Construction
The ML Knight 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. The 24-3/4-inch scale V-shaped neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays.EMG Active Pickups
This knight marches forward with serious tone, thanks to a pair of active EMG humbuckers. In the bridge position is a high-output 81. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the 81 delivers incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain, so your leads can cut through the densest mix.

In the neck position the Elite features an 85. It's a slightly more well-rounded version of the aggressive 81. With close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 offers plenty of versatility, with a muscular growl and smooth lead tones, perfect for the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. Each pickup gets a volume control, with a three-way toggle between pickups and shared tone.Grover Tuners
If you play guitar then you know what this means--solid, dependable tuning from the industry standard. These guitar machines are a triumph in engineering and style, with a gear ratio of 14:1, perfect gear meshing, and zero backlash and slippage. The gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
Licensed Floyd Rose Tremolo
The patented and often imitated double-locking design of the Floyd Rose tremolo allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. Engineered like no other tremolo system, the Floyd's high-quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications. Beat it up as much as you want--from traditional vibrato to dive bombing leads or flapping loose strings, and stay in tune while you do it.
