DEAN Machine

Post by Westbone on Tue Dec 06, 2011 12:04 pm

Found this in a case, it's been there for about 10 years.
Sounds excellent, heavy rock to sweet.
German carve all around the front , back and headstock. All the gold stands proud.
No model number, nothing. Anyone seen one before?

What do you mean you "found this in a case", was it just lurking under the spare bed or summat?

I know one of the designers for Dean went on to make Chafin guitars. I wonder if this is one of his designs as it seems closer to his own brand than a typical Dean model.

. A friend has a couple of Chafins - custom all the way down to selecting your own wood. I did a side by side with his 3500 dollar custom and my PRS Swamp Ash, and it was a real tough call. The Chafin was beautiful, but the PRS sounded a bit better. They had the same pickup sets in both, and my friend has to concede. But I will say he makes some beautiful guitars, and they play great. I think Ben Chafin had a thing going where he was going to bring back the Electra brand at some point. Maybe with a bit of push he would do the same with Westone.

It's all relative at some point.

Chafin's Electra's were really pretty, but they aren't Electras without MMKs to me.

Searching around I found this.

Click on the Indonesia catalogue. Some similar type designs. Especially the Javelin model with a German carve all round.
Thanks sarc.
