Dean Intros Michael Schenker Guitars

Dean girlsDean introduced its 2005 models at the Winter NAMM Expo. Dean featured a series of guitars inspired by ace guitarist Michael Schenker. The electric models are the Michael Schenker Standard, the Michael Schenker Custom & the Michael Schenker USA model. The Dean Girls, right, were on hand to help showcase the new products.

Dean introduced the first Schenker guitar model in late 2004. The total run of these $4500 beauties sold out in only 4 days. Dean Guitars plans to start shipping these models in early February.

The two acoustic models are Michael Schenker Exotica and the Michael Schenker Performer.

Surprisingly, the new guitars got more attention than the Dean Girls.
