Dean Guitars offers Z-Glide Neck on StrettaVita and Zenyatta Models
May 7, 2014
The Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck (patented) gives players a feel that cannot be achieved by any other guitar. The precision laser engraving reduces surface area thus reducing friction between the hand and the guitar neck. Your hand only comes in contact with 30% of the necks surface...the rest is air. Players instantly notice the improved playability and feel. Designed by Dean Zelinsky this patented concept is exclusive to Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars.
UNIQUE SINGLE CUT BODYThe StrettaVita’s body is a full 2-1/4” thick for that substantial, vintage single cut feel. Every body is carefully Chambered Mahogany, topped with a full 3/4” carved Canadian Rock Maple top, and then additionally capped with nicely figured Flame Maple Veneer. This guitar is very comfortable with weight ranging from 8.5 – 9.5 lb.
All bodies have a high gloss finish and a natural binding scrape exposing the maple edge with an additional 2.5mm scrape on the top of the body...a feature found on many Custom Shop Guitars and never before offered in guitars at this price range.
SIGNATURE DZPL PICKUPSThe Dean Zelinsky Private Label Humbucking Pickups are higher output but designed to still achieve those clean warm tones and be very articulate in the lower register. Controls are a master volume and master tone with a coil tap for both pickups.
StrettaVita Custom necks are made of Canadian Maple with Dean Zelinsky’s signature slight 'V' profile; eliminating wood where your hand comes in most contact with the neck. The neck is contoured into the heel for easy playing all the way up the fretboard. StrettaVita’s are designed with Dean Zelinsky’s nearly four decades of experience, creating guitars that are effortless to play.
Locking Tuners with a 20:1 ratio are a standard feature. Headstocks feature a rosewood veneer with Dean Zelinsky’s signature logo in a bright nickel finish.
