Dean Guitars’ new Vengeance and Zero models come loaded with Fishman Fluence Modern pickups and a host of great hardware choices. These guitars are squarely aimed at the modern player looking for tight gain tones. Let’s take a closer look.
Dean Guitars Vengeance and Zero
Stainless steel frets, glow-in-the-dark side-dot markers, and a set of Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers are the standout features of these new Dean Guitars Vengeance and Zero models. Both models are clearly designed with the hard rock and metal fraternity in mind, as the specifications lend themselves perfectly for these genres.
Vengeance vs Zero?
Both are mahogany-bodied guitars and are available in three different finishes including Black Satin, Charcoal Burst and Black Cherry Burst. You then have a three-piece maple neck with a 25.5″ scale length and a C-shaped profile, with an ebony fingerboard and 24 stainless steel frets.
The main differences between the various incarnations of both the Vengeance, which are a modern V shape, and the Zero models, which are more like an Explorer-style instrument, essentially comes down to the finish and the choice of bridge.
The Black Satin finished models get a stripped back, string-through design with a TonePros Tune-O-Matic bridge and a single humbucker and no fretboard markers. The Burst models, however, feature flame maple tops and come with either a Floyd Rose 1000 or an Evertune vibrato system.
As mentioned earlier, all models come loaded with Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers. The Black Satin models have just a single volume knob, whilst burst models come with two volumes and a tone control.
