This guitar is a steal!!!I bought this guitar because of the EMGs, floyd rose, and the new SUPER thin neck designed for this guitar.Before this guitar I was in love with my Jackson DKMG, and I have a hard time going back to it now after playing this guitar.The neck is extremely thin and it allows for the EASIEST access to the higher frets.The only trouble I had was the difference in playing style.With my Jackson I played with a lot of bends and vibrato.I had trouble playing that way with this guitar, but I quickly adjusted to using the whammy instead.When buying this guitar from Amazon, it comes with the worst strings I have ever played.Don't bother using them just replace the strings and set the tuning and floyd rose how you like and have at it.

Alder Body
Dean uses an alder body for this axe.Alder is a common choice for electrics, and generally offers an even-keeled tone. In combination with the active EMG pickups, you'll get a versatile, high-output tone, suited for most any player--pedal types, metal types, or those who just want a gritty blues tone.Bolt-On Construction
The DC6F uses bolt-on construction, an affordable alternative to set-neck or thru-body designs. The advantage of this design is that if you do have any neck trouble down the line, you can easily replace it. The maple neck features an ultra-playable 24-fret ebony fingerboard, with Dean's wicked-looking "Deceiver" inlays.EMG Active Pickups
The DC6F offers serious tone with its 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 85-7. 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. On the electronics front this axe keeps it simple, with a three-way toggle between pickups and a single volume knob. 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.

Original Floyd Rose Tremolo System
The patented and often imitated double-locking design of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System 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.
