The sound is crisp and it truly sings. Beautiful high sounds.
Haven't tried it through a PA or amp yet but will tonight at church.
The only thing I wasn't impressed with is the placement of the strap button being placed on the bottom side of the neck.
Ease of Use:
The tuner I found extremely easy to use right out of the box (thank gawd because there's no manual for its instruction of use).
Ive owned 12 strings before and can tune them by ear, but the tuner on this Dean does an outstanding job of putting ALL 12 strings on key.
The action is good. Would be difficult for those w/ weak hands and forearms playing bar chords. *Just keep playing. You'll build them up.
After a thourough inspection, I have to say that the quality is outstanding. I didn't expect it to be this nice for such a low cost.
The tuner/EQ seems to be of good quality but only time will tell.
The cosmetics of this piece are breath-taking. It "will be" the most attractive piece in your collection.
Haven't had it long enough to know.
Compared to the Fender and Ibanez's out there around the Exotica 12 string price range.....I'm extremely happy w/my decision to go with this guitar.
For the low cost, ease of use and the beautiful woods used...yoi won't be disappointed (unless its broken when you get it...lol)
The Wow Factor:
I'm simply speechless!
An outstanding instrument and a must have....especially for the inexpensive cost.It's the most beautiful guitar in my collection.
