    Dean actually has a thing called the big assed head stock.

    It's their first run of guitars in like 1977-78. The head stocks went through a few different shapes before settling on their standard v shape.

    About the same as my Jazz Bass Betty. Not as heavy as the Thunderbird.
    very comfortable to play.

    Yes some of the BIG headstocks where at the Dean Factory Tour. Crazy
    And then they make this.....
    with 4 big ass headstocks!

    Last week you told me you're thinning them out, sell sell & selling.
    This week it's buy buy & buying.
    Stop it, you need all the money you can get to feed those dogs & assorted critters. :rofl:

    MR. Sniffer.........you may have noticed a "balanced reduction" in 6 to 4 string guitar models......but ---yes as Raiyn said-----only a select few are here for the long haul.....most are just profit fodder ;) ---though--- these Dean products are very good quality for the $$$$

    I can tell you I played a USA MAde (in Tampa Fl.) Demonator at the factory ----and this one plays and feels ---frankly JUST as good.
    The USA Demonatoor is 2600.00 ---this was 120.00 uhm......wow....happy camper here

    Any self respecting cork sniffer will tell you the $2,600 is better than the $120 regardless how well the $120 sounds and feels.
    It's all in the KNOWING that we put the big bucks down and expect adoration from the masses. :bowdown:
