“We have the highest regard for Buddy’s talents and after sitting down and discussing what we both envisioned for this guitar, we realized that the new Dean/Blaze ML would incorporate the features that many players would find very appealing and a departure from what we are currently producing.” said Dean Guitars CEO Elliott Rubinson.
Buddy Blaze adds: “My love for the Dean ML has endured over 25 years, the chance to create a signature model ML with Dean Guitars is a dream come true! After meeting with Elliott at Dean Headquarters in Tampa earlier this year, I was impressed with his depth of guitar knowledge and his love of the ML. I asked that we do a complete design, not just a graphic, and he allowed me to reinvent my favorite Dean model! Modern era Dean Guitars are 2nd to none in quality and value and I have no hesitation adding my name to this model. I insisted on top quality components and rigid adherence to my design elements. Elliott and the Dean team delivered! The Dean DMT pickups just scream tone!”
The Dean/Blaze guitars will be available soon and will include a hard shell case. Production worldwide will be limited to 300 pieces and will include a certificate of authenticity.
