Beautiful guitar with never-ending resonance

Peter6877, 01.07.2015
I've had my Dean Performer (Koa finish - B-E-A-utiful!) for 5 days and I'm already in love with it :)

The gold hardware complements the finish of the Koa wood very well, the headstock might actually be my favourite part of the guitar.

The tuner isn't very good at all, but hey, I've numerous tuners, just a little disappointed with this as I loved the idea of the Dean wings lighting up to show pitch.

This is my second Dean, I also have a Dean from Hell, so I bought this with an expectation of beauty and quality. The Performer hasn't disappointed at all.

I'm aware that a guitar at this price level isn't going to be perfect, mine has a very slight bleamish around the fifth fret when looking down from a playing position, but it's no £1000 acoustic!

The action was a little high when I bought it, but a slight adjustment of the truss rod and she's playing beautifully. The resonance is really good, I'm pleasantly surprised, as, coming from a dreadnought guitar I was worried that this guitar wouldn't deliver as much sound, but it delivers in bucket loads.

The D'addario strings are in really good nick, I was half expecting to have to re-string immediately. The strings are lovely and bright, as-good-as-new imo.

I still haven't plugged it in to my amp to see how the A/E sounds, but I think this proves how good she sounds without plugging in. A/E is just a bonus and not the reason that I've bought it (will come in handy when playing at my sister's wedding in August though).

very nice guitar but by the sound

celeste31m, 27.08.2017
a very nice guitar but already returned because of the amplifier the string so acute seemed to be attenuated compared to the other. no change during the sav. back holiday I take the guitar inevitably connects and the so acute unlocks again and without amp.
a guitar for the decoration really disappointed.
