  • Comments:

    The choice of many professionals, Christopher Dean guitars are internationally very popular due to their consistently appealing musicality and richness yet clarity of tone.
    This one has a lovely deep voice (with air resonance around F#) and a clear, rounded treble that shows immense promise for a brand new instrument. The balance is really good and like many Dean guitars, very responsive to right hand tone change.
    Equally enjoyable for player and listener; amateur or professional, these are super instruments in both looks, tone quality, playability and concert strength.
    So this is an opportunity for an impressive Christopher Dean without having to wait his lengthening order period.

"Having known Miles for many years now I can say with some authority that dealing with him is a pleasure, due largely to my secure feeling that he, like me, has a genuine love of his subject. Over the years I have always been eager to hear feedback from both Miles, and his customers, and this has helped me greatly to bolster my own passion for the guitar and to refine my work ."
