Moore is known as one of the most influential guitarists to emerge out of the shredder boom in the mid 1980s. And he's still going strong.

The balanced body is made of alder with a beautiful flame maple top and trans black finish. The comfortable 25-1/2 scale maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard and special VM inlay. Special DMT design pickups in an HSS configuration provide plenty of powerful sonic options to explore. Elegant black hardware includes precision Grover tuners and a Floyd Rose special bridge to keep your playing locked in tune.

THE MAKING OF THE GUITAR

 

 

2007

The Dean connection with UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore. According to recent photos, Vinnie Moore has not only joined the Dean team, but apparently there is a Vinnie Moore signature Dean in the works. Moore told www.getreadytoroll.com “I have been playing Dean guitars since July and am seriously diggin' them. They are making some great stuff and are an extremely hot company right now. We have been working together on a VM signature model which should be available in early 2008 and it is going to be smokin'. These guys really know what they're doing.

“I had two or three phone conversations with Josh Maloney from their custom shop about the details of what I wanted, and they put together a guitar for me within like 10 days. I went down to Tampa to visit them and was floored by how great the guitar played and sounded. I could have used it onstage that very night. The guys working in the custom shop are great players themselves and I think this is a big reason why the guitars are so awesome.
Pat Baker is quite a shredder and he tweaks my guitars and when I get them they feel great.... I don't have to do anything but play. We are making some small refinements to the Signature model but are pretty close to finalizing the design. Besides the VM model, I have fallen in love with my Dean Z79. I have wanted a guitar with a 24 3/4 scale for quite a while but other things wouldn't stay in tune for me. The Z stays in tune extremely well and sounds way cool. I am extremely excited to be with Dean and see great things in the future.”
