TONE MONSTER

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

This guitar totally exceeded my expectations and then some. I was financially downsizing and got rid of my Dean Deceiver FM Trans Blue with EMGs and bought this Schenker on the hope that it might get somewhere in the same state of tone that my Deceiver had. It blows my Deceiver away. First is tone. I'm making an educated guess that the pickups are import versions of Schenker's own DMT USA Lights Out Pickups since it's made in the same factory as the Schenker Retro. They also have that classic Schenker ceramic magnet sound. Both pickups roar like a lion but clean up well. I can't say enough about these DMT Pickups, unless you play Death Metal, they are awesome. On high gain they roar, but also manage to sustain single note and chord articulation perfectly as well as have a great deal of sustain in general. The tone knob is the hidden hero here. I normally just turn my tone to ten forget about it, not here. You can get most any sound you want out your guitar by just adjusting the tone knob and leaving your amp at your favorite setting. The tone knob is very sensitive and captures a dynamic range of difference. Second is appearance. Nothing special, standard Michael Schenker black and white color scheme with a traditional Dean V headstock which I love but that's personal preference. It feels well constructed and solid. Lastly is playability. Awesome neck and fretboard. It has a super modern C shaped neck, almost bordering on a D shape, but still thick enough to grip and not super thin. Very fast. The fretboard is nice and flat with 22 extra jumbo frets that bend like crazy. As with all V shaped guitars you have complete access to the full 22 frets. I can totally understand now how come this guitar has gotten such great reviews. But I'm not sure about the people that want to change the pickups out. The set of EMGs in the guitar I got rid of cost almost as much as this guitar and don't sound near as good. As with every new guitar I get I always take them to a guitar shop for a full set up.

Comments about Dean Michael Schenker Standard Electric Guitar:

You look at the guitar and you think, wow! Then you look at the headstock and you think, cheap, must be rubbish. But plug this in and you'll realize that this guitar offers a monstrous tone at an affordable price. This for me is a dream guitar. Of course if I had $3500, I'd get the original U.S. built and signed version but this is a pretty good budget version. This guitar simply put is a dream to play. None of these new skinny necks, this is like a tree trunk but still plays pretty fast if you have the technique. If you love that Scorpions/MSG rhythm sound, you'll love this. The only slight disappointment is the fact it's a bolt on. If I could find the Korean set neck, I'd probably get it but this will do for now.
