This Classic Dean Baby ML shape LOOKING BODY is a 6-string Electric guitar. Factory Display cardboard box had a TAG on it # LL BABY / ML, V, Z Lightweight Dean Wings Logo Case. Before putting this Dean " Z " Guitar into this DEAN ML-LL Baby Polyfoam Fitted CASE.
The BML stands for Baby ML. On the electronics side of things,,, This Guitar is equipped with 2-Humbucker style /?? / DMT Design Pickups from DEAN as shown in the photo,,, The factory plastic film is still on the pickups and the electronics cavity cover on the back-side of the guitar!!! Construction is 4-bolt Neck,,, with DEAN signature LOGO on the Ebony Plate, .
Body Wood is BASSWOOD, with a slight "Contoured Top", . Top Wood is also BASSWOOD,,, Contoured Shape, . Tuners are Die-Cast Sealed & Lubricated Ebony finish. Fretboard wood is ROSEWOOD,,, with the 10-DOT Round Abalone dot design inlays, .
Neck wood is Maple with alot of grain Lines showing,,, see-the-photo, . Dean shows the neck is called a'C' style in the factory catalog, . Scale Length is 24 3/4''inch,,, (24.75''),,, See-The-Photo of the tape measure.
Different brands of Guitars use different Scale Lengths as follows >>>. The old 1960's Fender Mustang & Jaguar was 24'' scale,,, (shorter than this). A Paul Reed Smith Santana series is 24.5'', . Most GIBSON's and EPIPHONE models are the same as this DEAN,,, 24.75'', .Other Fenders; Ibanez; Jackson; Kramer; Schecter; Fender Squier; are 25.50'. So even though this is a smaller 3/4 and/or 7/8's body the actual scale Length is a NORMAL LENGTH as compared to other above Brands of Guitars. Per the factory catalog the top-nut string-guide is 1 5/8''inch,,, see photo, . Bridge is a Adjustable Tune-0-Matic style with string balls hooking in the rear Back-Side,,, String-Thru-The-Body,,, see-the-photos. Pickups are Humbucker styled Dean model DMT Design. Body Color on this Guitar is the TITANIUM ICE (TI) Metallic design,,, ZOOM-in for a closeup look at the sparkle body finish. Sort-Of Light Purple -or- you might call it Lavender Purple?? # ML-Baby = "ML" style - Baby,,, Some folks call this Both a 3/4 -or- 7/8 short body,,, Liteweight,,, This Guitar weighs just 6 pounds outside of it's case. IT's overall Length measurement is 41'' inches,,, and the'Z' width is 15''inches. The Serial Number on the headstock is O 08041291 made in China,,, From the forums I gather The #08 is the YEAR, #04 is the MONTH, and #1291 is this units production quantity number??? ALL OF THIS CAN NOT BE PROVEN,,, ONLY FORUM TALK???
I can find it Listed in a 2007-08 Dean online catalog ALL I know is, That it is a Very Rare Guitar to find BRAND-NEW from a Real Music Store Owner!!! Especially in the Titanium ICE finish. Either way it is a very Rare guitar to find BRAND-NEW!!
I don't see any other of these specific guitars to compare spec's. IF you have any information or comments then PLEASE message me thru this Listing,,, THANK-YOU!!
Now Let me Clarify a few things, .'NEW'' --- "OPEN BOX" --- or "USED", . So I have Listed it here as NEW,,, OPEN-BOX,,, NOS (new old stock). IT is a grade "A" stock,,, (not'b' stock)??
IT is an OPEN-BOX, because it does NOT come sealed in a plastic wrapper bag,,, AND it was inside its factory display box before I opened it and put it inside this Dean Logo Case, OPEN-BOX out of it's case in MY Retail Music Store until today. IT comes inside this case from the Dean USA factory distributor.IT is (NOS), new-old-stock because of it's YEAR MODEL of it's serial Number, . # O 08041291,,,'OH'-'zero' -8041291,,, with the CE inspection sticker, .'08'' is for the year it was built in China, (Like BC Rich China models), .'04'' is for the month??? I can't find proof??'1291 is for the production number of this unit,,, IT was #1291 built that year. ALL of which the above information is merely speculation / and Guessing. Either way " IF " you are a Dean Fan,,, then you know the value of finding an un-used,,, Brand-New,,, (NOS) Collectible Dean Guitar,,, " ML " in this Titanium ICE finish metallic Sparkle pattern would be!!
