    Realized I hadn't posted my NGD for this little gem. Found in a second-hand record store for <$400 w/HSC. Plays ridiculously well. Made in Unsung in 2008. Coil taps, fat v-shaped Dean neck, and made with fantastic attention to detail. Plays as well (better than) my Epiphone LP Std.
    You don't see them anywhere, and it gives good LP-style tones. If you find a *Select,* snag it.

    You won't be disappointed.

    I remember the good old days when John McFee rocked a Dean Cadillac. I was just reading a gear rundown of the Doobies, and it seems that now he tours with a Variax.

    Nice looking guitar. I always dug the design. Explorer in the front, LP in the back..because everyone loves a fat bottom girl

    A great score you got there! I had a Dean Cadillac (like the one shown here).

    Kept her only a few weeks before sending her back. The guitar was far more beautiful than any picture could show and was incredibly well made. I just hated dealing with that damned Floyd Rose. Not a big "whammy bar" user. Proved to be a pain in the @$$ when I changed strings, too. Still, I sorely regret not keeping her. I plan on getting another again one day. That said, the pickin's are getting slimmer for them the longer I wait.
