This is a one of a kind Dean Custom Shop USA Soltero Gold Top.with special order custom components. Built in 2009 (the only one of it's kind on the planet!). It is in absolute mint condition and comes with a Dean Guitar's rigid soft case.
The guitar was carved and assembled in the Dean USA Custom Shop in Florida. It started out as a top of the line Dean USA Soltero model. USA Solteros usually have transparent finishes so the AAAA flame Oak tops show through, but this one was to get a beautiful goldtop nitro finish from a custom finish shop in LA. This is not a standard Dean USA Soltero, it's way beyond, but it is authenticated by Dean as their custom order build. The headstock was beveled and the heel was modified (deeply sculpted) to allow greater access to upper frets.All electronics were also enhanced, including Switchcraft switch and Jack, CTS 500K Audio Taper Pots, and Sprague Orange Drop Caps 0.22. The guitar was then sent to professional custom painter, Martin Bravo, in Los Angeles for a nitrocellulose lacquer goldtop finish. Take a close look at the pics, the finish is exquisite in person. Martin does custom finish work for many top custom Luthiers. (I can send many more pics on request. The flame maple top was left natural on the sides which makes almost a half inch beautiful, natural maple binding. Just stunning, with the carved, gold nitro top and vintage finish Honduran Mahogany of the back and sides. If you've never seen a USA Soltero, it's a stunning LP style guitar with a carved top and sculpted curves that make your typical Les Paul look, well, boring. It gets nothing but rave reviews from players and all the major mags, most often given higher marks than .... that other curvy guitar. In front of a crowd, it looks stunning and the sound can melt you with vintage warmth or blow you way with a chunky grind that cuts right through.
For this custom order build, original Dean USA Soltero, brushed nickle hardware was used along with custom wound Dean pickups (Baker Act - bridge and Nostalgia - neck).
