2015 Dean USA Custom Shop Rusty Cooley 7-String Xenocide Electric Guitar. This guitar is in overall excellent condition and plays great. It is perfectly setup and has zero issues. The custom graphic finish looks really cool. It has a very thin neck for ultra fast playing. It weighs just 8.12 pounds and has a 1.90" nut width. The neck thickness measures 0.747" at the 1st fret and 0.762 at the 12th fret.
Overall great condition. There is little wear on this guitar considering its age. The top is very clean with only one very tiny finish checking mark near the pickup selector switch. All hardware is immaculate. The back of the body is glossy black and shows some typical light scratches commonly found on all glossy black guitars. The rear tremolo cover is not included. A tremolo lock has been added to keep the Floyd Rose in place, but can be easily removed. The back of the neck is smooth with no marks. The Ebony fingerboard looks great. The frets have zero fretwear. The neck is straight and the truss rod works. The headstock is perfect and all tuners work. All electronics are original and have no issues.
Includes the original hardshell case in good overall condition. The exterior of the case has some scuffs from storage. The interior of the case is in excellent condition and fits the guitar perfectly. The handle works. The two outside locks latch, but are very difficult to open. You need to pull very hard to get the latches to release. The middle latch works fine.

USA made. Includes case.
