1982 Dean Z Brazilia Burst Explorer!

Here is a rare and desirable VINTAGE 1982 Dean Z Standard in Brazilia Burst! Very lightweight at 8 lbs even. On another scale it is 7.9 lbs. It's actually a very clean guitar overall too. These are getting extremely hard to find in this classic bound neck AND bound body. Nice lightly figured top! Bound ebony board, Brazilian Burst finish, Schaller tuners, DiMarzio Super Distortion humbuckers... These were big in the late 70's and early 80's and were amongst the finest designs including those from Hamer and BC Rich!

This particular guitar is in very nice condition overall. There are a few small dings as shown in the photos. Minor buckle marks on the back. The guitar really sounds excellent! The guitar plays great and is ready to go! Comes with the original hardshell case and case key. Also, there is an old store tag when it was new! These are already sought after guitars but very hard to find. So here is a great opportunity to get one of these old bound Dean Z's.

    Weight: 8.0 lbs.

    Fast WORLDWIDE Shipping Available! Please contact us for more details.
