The Dean Custom Run series is Dean's flagship limited edition series. These sophisticated, well-appointed guitars are instant collectors instruments. Utilizing top of the line components, Dean Custom Run guitars are designed for the discerning guitarist who wants an impeccable guitar that wows audiences and screams for the limelight.

The Mahogany body of the Dean Custom Run #8 DCR ML Switchblade is topped off with Quilted Maple and is perfectly matched with the Quilt Maple Veneer headstock.  This classic tonewood combination will not only provide you with incredible tone, but the Quilt Maple top will cater to the #8 DCR ML Switchblade's top shelf aesthetics. To give this guitar that classic Dean vibe, the #8 DCR ML Switchblade employs Dean's ML body shape.

The set neck of the #8 DCR ML Switchblade is crafted from Mahogany into a comfortable, slim "D" neck profile and houses a 24 Fret Ebony fingerboard to provide you with the ultimate playability, especially for high velocity shredders. The Ebony fingerboard also boasts Pearl "Bomber" position inlays to contribute to this guitars sweet looks.

The #8 DCR ML Switchblade houses three DMT pickups including a USA DMT Nostalgia neck pickup, a DMT Design middle pickup and a USA DMT Baker Act bridge pickup. The Nostalgia pickup is a vintage style pickup, perfect for classic rock and blues, making this a favorite for guitarist seeking classic tones with balanced tonal response. The hottest of the pickups, the Baker Act bridge pickup, has the output, guts and grit to please any shredder or hard rocker, and will give your solos a nice growl. These two humbuckers along with single coil in the middle facilitate an expansive tonal range, and is sure to deliver a wide range of over the top tones that'll please palettes of hard rockers and shredders alike. To expand your tone even further, this guitar features push/pull control knobs and a 5-way pickup switch.

The DCR #8 DCR ML Switchblade features Chrome (Trans Blue) or Black Chrome Hardware (Trans Black) including a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and grover tuners, which provide you with the ultimate tuning stability, even after the deepest of dive bombs.

The Dean Custom Run #8 DCR ML Switchblade is individually numbered and includes a Dean Hardshell Case to protect your valuable instrument.
