DBZ Guitars is a new guitar company founded by guitar visionary Dean Zelinsky. Dean was the creative force behind the original Dean Guitars and in many ways launched and drove the hard rock guitar market. Rock players in the 80s and 90s that were looking for an alternative to Gibson found solace in the stylings of Dean Guitars. Great classic Dean guitars included the Dean Z and the Dean V.
Fast forward to 2008 and Dean is no longer with Dean. Enter DBZ Guitars, a Northbrook, IL guitar company that again is putting out very awesome rock guitars. But there are new guitar ideas brewing over at DBZ that take rock in a new, creative direction.
The DBZ Imperial is a solid body guitar that cleverly employs both new and classic style elements to create a playable guitar that is at home with many styles of music. In fact, a jazz player looking for warm tones will find a guitar with numerous ES-335 elements and a warm sound. A rock player will love the V neck and the sustain from the mahogany body and neck. A Blues player will love the humbuckers and the full tone that flows from the axe.
The true uniqueness of the Imperial comes out when you view the profile of the guitar. It seems to taper into nothingness…creating a comfortable playing surface that never interferes with your right arm. It’s truly special and cool.
