Dean Dimebonics ML Electric Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Mike Carpenter

This guitar was brand new, hanging on the used wall at Guitar Center… the deal was just too good to leave.

…It has a great shape, and it plays like a charm…

Dean Dimebonics MLI had a guitar I didn’t play anymore, was looking to trade, and I couldn’t resist! It was a choice between this one, made in Korea, and the Chinese made Dime From Hell.

Features:

24.75″ scale length, cross inlays mixed with the Dime traditional razor blade at the 12th fret, Seymour Duncan Dimebucker pickup in the bridge, Dean Dime Time pickup in the neck, Grover tuners, Original Floyd Rose bridge, unique graphic design with all of Dime’s catch phrases.

Ease of use:

This guitar plays great; low action, no buzz, nice and fast. The ML shape is surprisingly comfortable for sit down practice and it hangs well.

Sound Quality:

It’s not just a 1 trick pony for duplicating Dimes tone and I’ve even gotten some good blues tones out of it. It handles hard rock and metal like a champ and can even produce some blues tones as well.

Reliability:

I’ve been playing it for over 6 months and it’s held its tune well and I’ve only had to crack open the locking nut twice, and that was for alternate tunings (unlike other Floyds I’ve played), it’s also really good at string durability.

Overall Rating:

It has a great shape, and it plays like a charm. I prefer the tone of the Duncan to the Bill Lawrence of some other Dime models. Sounds fantastic, plays fantastic… I’d own 3 more if I could!
