Still too much money for what appears to be an all laminate guitar.

Rumor has it that this guitar was rejected by its first manufacturer, only to go on and form its own competing manufacturing company which was - quite awesome by all means - but never quite lived up to its original manufacturers success.

I kinda dig the clawed look but it does look cheap. Of course knowing Dave, if this design gets overwhelmingly panned he's gonna blame one of his ex-guitarists for giving him the design idea.

Since when does "single ply" mean laminate?

I read mahogany, maple, and ebony in the specs....

Listed under binding. I don't trust the "specs" unless it says solid maple and solid mahogany. However, there's another Mako at GC that states the top is solid but not back & sides. Either way, Dean wouldn't be on my short list of budget guitar makers.

Link? I don't see any specs listing the word "binding" anywhere, on this site, or any other that sells this guitar.

You realize that "binding" is just the decorative covers over any seams, right? By definition, binding will always be laminated on top of whatever it is binding....this has NOTHING to do with the acoustics or structure of the guitar at all.

Also, FWIW, many mid to higher-end acoustic guitars use laminated wood for certain parts...such as the Taylor 214CE (around $1200-$1400). Same reason it's used in house construction....it's more rigid and more temperature stable, than plain old wood. It's generally used on non-resonating parts of the guitar (e.g. NOT the top).

I'm not saying I'm a fan of this particular guitar, but I just don't get where your comments are coming from.

If only you could click on the tab marked "Spec" to the right of the tab "Description" ... you will see what he means .... it is not too hard and no need to go to another site. laugh out loud

He is right thought and I agree with him this is most likely an all laminate guitar. He also did some more DD that is useful and he found that the American Flag model of this signature guitar has solid Spruce top listed in the spec. No way you will get an all solidwood guitar.

This is a discontinued model ... the product page is removed from Dean's site.
