1978 Dean USA Elite Patents Pending
S/N#: 78 00961

Early American Dean Rock-n-Roll Machine with unique features.

Features of this 1978 USA ML include:
• Set neck construction
• Big beefy neck profile
• Original Kluson Deluxe Tulip Tuners (only found on very early Deans)
• Large Dean Headstock (Series II)
• Ebony Fingerboard
• Transparent Cherry Sunburst Finish
• form fitted hardshell case
• Smokin' Zebra Pick-ups (they are original - don't know if they are Dimarzios or Duncans, but they are very loud and aggressive)

Here's another old USA Dean from the collection. If you haven't already heard about the vintage USA Deans, They were sold as custom order guitars back in the late 70's and 80's, famous names like Heart, Doobie Brothers, The Cars, Kansas, Triumph, ZZ-top, Pantera, the list goes on and on played these machines. One 15 minute session with an old classic USA-Made Dean and you'll be hooked. Check out reviews on Harmonycentral.com or deanguitars.com to find out more on these hard to find American Rock Icons.


This is a nice example of a very early Dean Elite. Note the low Ser # 78 00961, meaning it was made in 1978 and was around the 1st 800 guitars made. Less than 6000 USA Deans were made between 1976 and 1985. The older USA Deans are more desirable. Also notice the Patents Pending stamped under the serial number. Own a piece of American Rock history that will appreciate as well as make you look cool in front of your wife, girlfriend, or both.... at your next gig.
