How come the MSRP for all the USA deans, razorbacks, V's and whatnot are like $3000+?

I know they have super good customer service, but come on now...

Dunno, but I found this funny as hell!

"The finest rock guitars since you-know-who sold out to the big boys."

It's like saying we are the king now because the real king died. :icon_lol:

But if you look at the artist page....they have a few names you might recognize:

Ok here is the 2006 Dean retail list: http://www.deanguitars.com/dean_retail_2006.pdf

Those high dollar guitars are the top o' da line wood, electronics and/or tribute guitars. You can find every model at a lower price, but lower quality (except the Dime Tribute)....basically the quantity for the masses. Lots of their new models are limited addition where they are only making 200 or less.

Looks like a Swan board to me! What kind of wood?

Duh, I just saw the other thread.

Schenker Brothers - $7999



those are a very limited run, and have the flames & schenker faces laser-etched into the wood. more of a collector's thing.
