Dean Shire Semi-Hollowbody with Piezo Electric Guitar (Classic Black)
Dean Shire Semi-Hollowbody with Piezo Overview by GAK:
A fantastic guitar that is one of the most versatile semi-acoustics around! You can achieve a great range of electric tones with the dual DMT design humbuckers (which can be sent to separate outputs to run in stereo!) or use the bridge piezo pickup to get convincing acoustic sounds at a flick of a switch.
The Dean Shire Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar offers a fresh unique look with some modern technology to create a guitar that exceeds expectations. It has a semi-hollow maple body with an arched maple top and f-holes for a timeless appearance. It's well-balanced and comfortable to play and has a relatively shallow body depth of 1-3/4". The set maple neck comes in a C shape with a rosewood fingerboard and pearl block inlays. Chrome hardware includes Grover tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge with a piezo pickup. And that's where the sonic fun begins. In combination with DMT design humbuckers, the piezo pickup offers up a pleasing variety of electric and acoustic sounds. A 3-way toggle for the humbuckers and a mini pickup selector let's you mix the 2 worlds to taste.
