The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
We stumbled across a treasure trove of samples and prototypes deep within Dean's warehouse and snagged them up. Many of these instruments ultimately ended up going into production, some did not. Others are prototypes and one-of-a-kind. The samples are ones that were made during the designing stage and factory selection and may not have the same specs as what went to production, therefore they may be one-of-a-kind as well.
This Select Series MD 24 Flame Maple model features a satin 3-piece Maple neck for ease of playing and endurance, while the Basswood body adds resonance and warmth, coupled with the Ebony fretboard. The C shaped neck is extremely comfortable and fast with its 25.5" scale and Ebony fretboard that offers 24 frets and a 12" radius.
Loaded with exclusive Direct Mount Seymour Duncan SH-5 and APH-1 pickups in a Zebra parchment finish and sand-blasted pole pieces to set the Audio taper pots for that smooth roll without destroying the tone, you can bet that this machine is tone monster!
Topped off with a flame Maple top, black hardware, a black headstock and an eye catching Trans White finish, which perfectly compliments the flame Maple top.
While this guitar has never been owned, it has been handled and played, as it was a sample received by Dean in the design/build process. It may show some signs of slight use, but has been fully tested and plays as expected. Please take a moment to review our pictures, as they accurately portray the true condition of the instrument.

You are buying a quality instrument made of wood. Each instrument goes through a pre-shipment inspection to ensure you are getting a great quality instrument. However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped, they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.
Included in your shipment will be instructions on care and maintenance.
