The guitar's single cutaway shape is based on the all-too familiar Les Paul, however subtle adjustments to the curves give it a distinctly modern look and feel.

The Thoroughbred Stealth hides away its modern aggressive tones behind a seemingly familiar and vintage looking shape. Its Black satin finish however hints to how the guitar is meant to satisfy the needs of contemporary high-gain metal and rock players.

The guitar starts off with the traditional combination of a mahogany body with maple cap. A single ply white body binding highlights the shape and provides good contrast to the dark satin finish.

The neck is made of mahogany and features a modern all-access set-neck joint for reaching the top frets. It is carved into a slim C-neck profile and is topped by an ebony fingerboard that matches the overall black theme.

The nut width is measured at 1-11/16" while the scale length is 24-3/4" - and it carries 22 jumbo frets with white mother-of-pearl block inlays.

To give modern players the hot output juice that they need, Dean equipped the Thoroughbred Stealth with EMG 81 humbucker on the bridge and EMG 85 humbucker on the neck.

This active pickup combination is tried and tested among rock and metal players - removing the need for any modification. Other features include all black-hardware, tune-o-matic bridge and Grover tuners. Check out the recently released demo video to see how the Thoroughbred Stealth plays:
