Dean began making V models in 1977, but ceased production in 2022 at Gibson's request.  Dean still offers some variants of the V shape, but if you want the classic unadulterated Dean V, you'll need to find a used one, like this beautiful 1982 model. 

This guitar looks sharp in gloss Red, and it's in Very Good condition with moderate wear and tear for a guitar of this age.  It has two humbucker pickups, a mahogany body and neck, 22 Jumbo frets, and a 24 3/4″ scale length. See more details below.  

Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, this Dean V is dialed in and ready to create some sonic mayhem at your next show.  It's a very nice example.  Comes with a newer non-original hard shell case.  If you're interested in purchasing this awesome guitar, feel free to give us a call at the shop for an in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have.
