    As huge Cars/Ric Ocasek fan, I still want to own a Cadillac someday, preferably solid white with 2 pickups just like Ric's.

    Well, whomever it was a few years ago that said that we need more mimicry to increase competition and improve quality got their wish, I guess.

    Now we have 50 ocean burst burl tops and probably 40 fades. Jesus Christ.

    Eh, I don't think that graphic looks very good at all on that guitar.

    Then again, I don't care for graphics on guitars in general, so...

    The HM Strat is an interesting guitar. Aren't they reissuing it or something?

    I think they're doing it because they didn't get enough attention as kids.

    I don't even know why this thing exists. It can be thrown right into the fire. If I (or frankly anyone for that matter) wanted a PGM, they'd go to Ibanez for one, not the brand's drunk, bitch ass cousin who hits his girlfriend.

    I think most people on here would have an aneurism over them being sub 25.5

    A lot of HMs had alder bodies, most probably since they started using it in 89' and they ran from 87' to 92'/93'.

    I really wish Dean would knock it off with these ugly ass graphics but I guess they sell. I say that as an owner of this thing...I hate the finish but Modifiers are hard to come by so I'll buy it in any color I can find [​IMG]

    As sad as it is I would still buy one if the Schenker flame flying Vs.

    I seem to have got a great quality Dean one of the black gold Vs, upgraded pups when I bought it and despite a slightly chunky neck it’s a great guitar

    Don't you EVER suggest shit like that again.

    That being said I plan to have mine repainted. It's funny because everyone loves this guitar when I pull it out. They think it's the coolest looking thing ever, so apparently Dean is onto something

    Completely unrelated to the new lineup..here's my major gripe with Dean..

    I hate a company that has a custom shop that's really just a repaint house. If all you're gonna do is give the option to change a couple things on your production models...I feel like it's not a full custom shop. UNLESS you're a name, they pretty much tell you to go screw yourself.

    You can get ESP to make a guitar based on a model of your dick if you paid them enough, hell they'd even cut your pubes off and glue it on the damn thing. Anything you ask for they can do.

    Dean on the other hand refuses to do custom shapes, won't do shape alterations on the guitars they have, and won't do custom versions of artist signatures EVEN THOUGH they do them themselves and post on their site. If you're someone important they'll do a custom shape..but if you're not someone they can brag about all you get is what they have in a different color with a super high price tag.

    If any company did ML/Modifier shapes other than Dean I'd go with them to be honest because I don't like that preferential treatment custom shop thing.

    When was the last time you asked? They seemed very open to making whatever changes to the RC7 when I emailed maybe five years ago.

    Though, why not go with ESP if you know they'll build whatever?

    Too much attention. All those participation trophies. Now they think they have to participate in everything.
