    Now you need a six-foot tall bottle of beer to open with it.

    When I saw that as "Stupid Deal of the Day", I had to concur.

    When I saw this ad in GP mag back in 1980 ( or ‘81)as a 12/13 year old, I knew there was something about these Dean guitars I reaaally liked!❤️

    Builder must have played a LOT of Tempest in the 80's.

    I keep getting this image in my head.

    Just need some sort of actuator on the guitar and I could pick up my dropped picks without bending over.

    Not at $1399 retail it isn't. But then I wouldn't pay anywhere near that just for the novelty. To me it's like the Plan 9 From Outer Space of guitars....

    Compared to the "pointy" guitars, that looks conservative enough for a dedicated gospel music player to use.:D

    I might try it standing up....maybe...but wouldn't set down with it unless I was wearing a cup, and had a full shield motorcycle helmet on my head to protect my eyes and my wedding tackle....

    It's really not that radical. It's like a hybrid of a LP/Strat/Tele. I have low output PAF style pickups in it, and it really sounds like a nice classic rock, "vintagey", "bluesy" sort of guitar.

    It is really comfortable, plays and sounds amazing (IMO).
