Dean has unveiled its new MD 24 Select guitar.
The MD 24 is built with a basswood body and a flat top with an arm cut and back belly cut. It features a bolt-on three-piece maple neck with a dual-action truss rod, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays.
Sonically, the MD 24 comes loaded with exclusive Seymour Duncan pickups - an APH-1N Alnico II Pro at the neck and a TB-5/SH-5 at the bridge. These are controlled by a volume knob and a three-way toggle.
The MD 24 also features an optional Floyd Rose tremolo system, while non-Floyd Rose models sport a Tune-O-Matic hardtail bridge with Dean’s exclusive Cadi tailpiece.
Other features on the MD 24 include Grover tuners, black hardware and neck and headstock binding.
The Dean MD 24 Select guitar is available now, at prices that depend on your choice of finish, and whether or not you want a Floyd Rose. The Flame Top Floyd in Trans Cherry will run you $849, the Select Floyd in Classic White costs $799, the Flame Top Trans Cherry (sans Floyd) is $699 and the Classic White (also sans Floyd) rings up at $649.
