Courtesy of Premier Guitar : Dean Guitars began producing instruments over thirty years ago in Chicago, IL under the supervision of owner Dean Zelinsky, and was founded on the idea of modernizing the classic designs like the Flying V and Explorer guitars. Aiming to produce a more original design, Dean combined the shape of the two guitarshalf V and half Explorerand named the new guitar the ML (after Matt Lynn, a friend of Zelinsky who passed away from cancer). The forward half of the body is the Explorer and the rear half is a V. Among the greatest admirers of this guitar was a luthier from Arlington, TX named Buddy Blaze. He acquired a used Dean ML that had once belonged to Darrell Dimebag Abbott and made quite a few alterations to the instrument, including sculpting a V-shaped neck profile, adding hotter pickups, a Floyd Rose tremolo and a snazzy graphic paintjob. Blaze gave the guitar to Abbott and the rest is history: Abbott took that guitar into the annals of rock with his groundbreaking metal band Pantera. Blaze went on to design a guitar for Kramer named the NightSwan in the 80s that featured a Strat-influenced body. Along with other trendsetting standards of the timelow-action necks and Floyd Rose tremolos Blaze designed this guitar to have two humbuckers, one at the bridge and the other in the middle position rather than the neck position, which is more typical of a two-humbucker design. Another distinguishing Blaze feature was the offset fretboard position markers that swoop diagonally along the length of the neck. The new Dean Buddy Blaze ML wraps all of these design elements into one guitar similar to his original Dean, painted blue with a striking chrome flame graphic. This guitar was definitely designed for speed, volume and visual appeal. Construction : The Dean Buddy Blaze ML is a set-neck design featuring a mahogany neck and body. Despite its size, the body is a mere 1.5″ thick, unlike the 1.752″ thickness of most guitars of this type. The size of the body makes up for it in the guitars overall mass, although it isnt really that heavy when you strap it on. The weight feels evenly distributed and well balanced. The scale length is 24.75, with a two-octave neck and 24 medium-height frets on a rosewood fingerboard. The pickups are made by Deans DMT division (Dean Magnetic Technologies). In the bridge position is a Blaze Bucker, codesigned with Buddy Blaze. It has an Alnico 8 magnet with a hot output of 15.7k. Like some other classic guitars, offsetting the outputs of paired pickups can offer some tonal benefits. A single Volume knob controls the output of this guitar. Its positioned quite a distance away from the right-hand playing position, way past the bridge, which could be a good thing if youre an arm-swinging windmill strummer, but a bad thing if you need to do volume swells with your pinky. It’s in the same location as the bridge Volume knob on most all Dean MLs, and Blaze says that he chose to keep it there for the benefit of ML fans and players. He also notes that he kept the full, traditional control cavity of the ML so that an additional Volume or Tone control could be easily added if the owner desired. Rounding out the construction features is the all-black hardware. Grover Rotomatic tuners are standard on all Dean high-end guitars. An original Floyd Rose tremolo is top-mounted and non-recessedlike all the classic hot-rodded guitarswith a 37 mm sustain block inside the body. Performance : Because of the V-shaped spine along the lower fretted area of the neck, chording is palpably easy, as is accenting single notes. An innovation from 50s-era strats, it has a very vintage feeling. In the upper register, the neck gets rounder and fades to a comfortable U-shape where the neck joins the body at the 22nd fret. What is a breath of fresh air to guitars of this type is the non-recessed Floyd Rose. With the neck-to-body angle pitched properly, the Floyd is aligned parallel to the surface of the body with enough clearance to pull up or down. This is the way the Floyd was originally intended to be mounted on a guitar, and recessing it into the body is somewhat unnecessary. This also means the Blaze MLs Floyd Rose is so much easier to maintain because of top mounting vs. This is a gorgeous instrument and a pleasure to play. This guitar is in unplayed condition, the plastic is still on the pickups and trim. Extremely well built and with a tiny production of only 300, these are sure to climb in value quickly. Outcome of recent lawsuit against Dean by Buddy Blaze insures that Blaze will make no more guitars for Dean and will only make this instrument more desirable to collectors. I have seen the price for these double since then. Don’t miss your chance to own this piece of rock history BEFORE THIS IS GONE FOR GOOD!!!!! Current Blaze lawsuit will only serve to drive up the price on this already scarce instrument! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
