Dean Explorer Guitars

The Dean Explorer is actually just an Explorer shaped guitar. It is actually called the Dean Time Capsule, Z Series including the Z Baby, 79 Series Z, Lost 100 Z, and Exotic USA Z.

There are reviews over at Ultimate Guitar as well as a few other guitar forums around the internet.

Dean produces guitars in the USA as well as in China. The guitars are priced accordingly. That's the best way to say that you get what you pay for.


Dean Explorer Shaped GuitarThe American guitars have a great reputation and their website is located here. The Chinese imports are value priced guitars and their quality leaves something to be desired.

Their low pricing and eye-catching appearance usually rope in beginner guitarists. Anyone who takes guitar playing seriously will soon discover that the quality manufacturing on the Chinese Deans is not even on the same ballpark as their American counterparts.

As of lately, they have released a Brett Michaels signature series Z guitar which touts USA made pickups as wel as a Dave Mustaine Zero with a Floyd Rose tremolo.

If you are in the market for an Explorer style bass guitars, then the John Enthwhistle Spider may be worth a try, as it also sports that elusive Explorer shaped body.

The ZX series is also predominately displayed at deanguitars.com as well.This shows Dean's willingness to promote the Z series even as others have decided to turn their back on Explorer shaped guitars. This is a definitely a plus.

This is all the specific info I have right now but if you'd like to add to this description I'd appreciate any information sent to me right here. I'm looking for descriptions, pictures, production years, availablilty, and that sort of info. If you can help out, please do.

Any information or thought on left-handed Dean Explorers would also be a big help as well. Lefty Dean Explorers haven't received much notoriety.

If you are looking to buy or get an idea on prices, Same Day Music stocks Dean guitars and equipment here.
