History of Dean Guitars

Dean Guitars are a well-known company specialising in making electric guitars, primarily versions of Gibson's classic Modernistic series of guitars. As well as this Dean make high quality acoustic guitars and mandolins and banjos.

The company was founded in 1977 by Dean Zelinsky, after whom the company is named. He wanted to make better guitars for rock and metal musicians than existed when the company started. When the company first started the main models in the range were the V, a copy of Gibson's 1950s Flying V design, and the Z, a copy of the Gibson Explorer, the other guitar from the Gibson Modernistic series that was actually made and sold (there was a third guitar in the series, the Moderne, of which none were made, not even in prototype stage, until 1982). There was also a third guitar in Dean's range, the ML, which was a very well-executed blend of both the aforementioned Dean guitars - it consisted of the bottom half of a V and the top half of a Z. The guitars differed from Gibson's designs by having no scratchplate and Dean's trademark headstock, a larger-than-normal model with a V shape.

The Wild Streak in ESP Guitars

When you're looking for a guitar that's finely built but that can withstand the abuse of hard rock, alternative and heavy metal, ESP guitars have it all. Made from the finest woods and finishes with strings and hardware that can hold up to shredding and wailing, ESP Guitars hold their own and have been successfully selling guitars since the 70s.

Though most models of ESP guitars have been prided on being designed or influenced by a well-known and established artist, the manufacturer also provides guitarists with a traditional line of electrics and basses to choose from. It's hardly a wonder why this guitar company has been labeled the number one in heavy duty guitars and instruments throughout the world.

How ESP Began

History Of The ESP Guitar

The first ESP Guitar was made in Japan in 1976. The ESP Company (Electric Sound Products) actually started up a year earlier but only provided guitar replacement parts at that time. ESP guitars and replacement parts continued to be sold exclusively in Japan for nearly a decade before moving into the U.S. market. In 1983 their replacement parts were made available in the U.S and in 1984 their guitars made their American appearance.

In 1984/85 ESP guitars were attracting some attention from great guitarists such as Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Vernon Reid (Living Colour) and Bruce Kulick (Kiss).

The next big name to discover ESP guitars was George Lynch (Dokken) while shopping for guitar parts when he was touring in Japan. When George found out that ESP made custom guitars, the model "Kamikaze" was made for him. The Kamikaze was the first signature model to be made.
