In 2008 I got a Gibson USA les paul for 3 grand. My first great guitar. In 2009 I bought this baby for a grand. Pawned Gibson for 500 and never got it back /family bought it from under me and sold it. The dean i sold for 500, 250 and a collateral tele, week later another 250. As much as I would love to find my Gibson and buy it back it will never happen. But rebuying this dean from hell is with in my reach and will 100% buy it again. First one I bought had some defects (bought from GC) they exchanged it no problem. Def inspect closely, mine had a crack in the tiny space hidden by The Floyd. Anyway point is I would still pay a grand for this thing. Guess the demand ain't too high and stock is still around. Don't believe dean is making them anymore.
