The Dean Thoroughbred X with Floyd Rose offers the look and feel of a higher-end Dean, but with a more affordable price. But don’t let the dollar sign distract you—this is a full-fledged, fully capable instrument. And with a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo, it’s a screamer, too.
The Thoroughbred X has a smooth, satin-finished mahogany body. The maple neck has a C-profile; the Indian rosewood fretboard provides timeless style. A 12″ radius ensures that you’ll be able to bend strings up the neck without the note “choking” out. Or if you prefer, do the bending with the licensed Floyd Rose tremolo. Pinch a harmonic, throw in a dive bomb and you’re ready to rock.
Dean loads the Thoroughbred X with a pair of DMT-designed Zebra humbuckers that are high output with plenty of bite. Dual volume and tone controls make it easy to dial-in the sound you’re looking for. Great for beginners or pros in need of a solid backup guitar, the Dean Thoroughbred X is a real winner.
