    Dean has been doing much better under Evan Rubinson, who took over from his father at the end of 17'/beginning of 18'.

    The lineup has been consolidated, the custom shop/R&D department has been given more funding and freedom, and they seem genuinely more committed to making more tasteful regular production guitars with added focus on quality.

    10000% this. Their lineups have been a lot better and is in line with their old vintage gear, where they focused more on taking vintage-style guitars, and hot-rodding the fuck out of them.

    oh I've seen some of their shapes. definitely hideous but still not as offensive to decent taste as the james tyler..

    Wtf that's the best Dean headstock I've ever seen. At least it's not a 3/4 size reverse flying v headstock. I'm sure that would look beautiful on a tele.

    The "NashVegas" headstock probably would have been a less polarizing option:

    But I don't mind the other one. I kinda like the script logo. Feels really old school.

    I think the old 6-in-line looks muuuch worse personally. :lol: just several weird angles going on.

    That tele headstock reminded me of this, of which I had forgotten entirely about until seeing a post in another thread.

    they should definitely fix their headstocks/logos
    the eagle logo works only on v-style headstocks, it's just bad on any other

    Only thing I dont like about that headstock is that it could be more pointy.
