Not gonna lie...I kinda dig the '79 series X and V with the flame tops. Then I click on the pic to see the description and remember that giant fugly-ass headstock.

:stewart:

These guitars could be well built and play amazingly, but I just don't want to be seen playing the logo of a brand that sullied their name on plywood starter guitars and "beaten dead horse" sigs for players no longer living.

A friend of mine collects Dean Cadilacs that where made in certain years in the Czech Republic a while back.. not now..... and I have to say, even though I really dont like that shape, those guitars are top notch and I dont mean "for a import/budget" guitar, I mean as good or better than US Deans.
About fifteen years back, a local shop had a few US Dean Hardtails. One of them smoked every PRS, Heritage, and US Schecter on the wall. If I had $2500 at the time, I'd have bought it. It had serious mojo.

And the Czech Spectors smoooooke.

I had one of those USA Hardtails briefly. Wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as the one you're thinking of.

Dean has a bunch of its own iconic designs from the late '70s - early '80s; they really don't need to do me-too Charvel/Suhr wannabes.

I can only imagine how neck-heavy an 8-string ML must be.

Classic Axe had three of them. Two were decent, but the faded bluejeans one was amazing.
