An Awesome Choice For The Beginner

Dean Dimebag Razorback Dean Dimebag Razorback

Dean beginner guitars are an awesome choice for the beginning guitarist. With super Metal attitude, high quality, great sound and playability, Dean Guitars have been a favorite of professional Metal guitarists since the late 1970s. Dean's offerings span the range from conservative designs all the way to designs that scream HEAVY METAL! Dean has something for everyone.

The list of Dean players over the years reads like a Who's Who of Rock, including legends such as Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, Dimebag Darrell, Dave Mustaine, Leslie West, Michael Angelo Batio and many others. If Dean electric guitars are good enough for the legends, they're definitely good enough for the rest of us. Since this page is meant to provide examples of Dean guitars that are appropriate for beginners, I'm limiting the guitars I list here to models that can be purchased for $300 or less.

If you've read my Advice For Beginning Guitarists page you know that I don't recommend spending a great deal of money on equipment until your playing has developed to the point that it makes sense to buy professional level equipment. The Dean beginner guitars I'm presenting will give you high quality and performance without breaking the bank. When you're ready, Dean has the professional models you will need.

    This is a superb Dean beginner guitar. The Vendetta XMT's sound and playability are astonishing for an electric guitar of its price point.

    The Dean Vendetta XMT features a basswood body for great tone and a bolt-on maple neck with a 24 fret, rosewood fretboard with dot inlay position markers. Die-cast tuners help you stay in tune while you're wailing away.

    And speaking of wailing, the Vendetta XMT sports two high output humbucking pickups for screaming Metal tone. Combine these with string-thru-body construction, a vintage tremolo bridge and 25 1/2" scale length and you can bend the strings like a madman and make this baby wail like a Banshee. Add to that separate volume controls for the pickups and a master tone control and you can dial in whatever sound you want.
