The Dean/ Buddy Blaze  ML has a unique “chrome flame” graphic,  and features a top mount Floyd Rose tremolo similar to the one that Buddy installed in Dimebag’s world famous Dean From Hell. It includes many features that Buddy is known for, such as his signature middle and bridge pickup positions loaded with custom wound Dean DMT pickups (ala the Nightswan Buddy created for Vivian Campbell).  Also included are custom ascending flame mother of pearl inlays on a 2 octave fretboard attached to a pitched neck featuring Dean’s famous “V” carve.

“We have the highest regard for  Buddy’s talents and after sitting down and discussing what we both envisioned for this guitar, we realized that the new Dean/Blaze ML would incorporate the features that many players would find very appealing and a departure from what we are currently producing.” said Dean Guitars CEO Elliott Rubinson.

Buddy Blaze adds: “My love for the Dean ML has endured over 25 years, the chance to create a signature model ML with Dean Guitars is a dream come true!  After meeting with Elliott at Dean Headquarters in Tampa earlier this year, I was impressed with his depth of guitar knowledge and his love of the ML.  I asked that we do a complete design, not just a graphic, and he allowed me to reinvent my favorite Dean model! Modern era Dean Guitars are 2nd to none in quality and value and I have no hesitation adding my name to this model.  I insisted on top quality components and rigid adherence to my design elements.  Elliott and the Dean team delivered!  The Dean DMT pickups just scream tone!”

The Dean/Blaze guitars will be available soon and will include a hard shell case. Production worldwide will be limited to 300 pieces and will include a certificate of authenticity.  For more information, please visit www.deanguitars.com.
