2013 Dean USA Custom Shop Zoltan Bathory Signature AR6 Guitar Red W/COA/CASE.

This guitar was made by the USA Custom Shop in 2013 when Zoltan had briefly left his endorsement with B.C. Rich.  The endorsement agreement with Dean Guitars was never finalized, so the run was apparently never completed. I don’t know exactly how many exist, but from what I have read, it ain’t many.

As you can see, this one is hand numbered #3/50 and comes with the matching COA.

Guitar is in near mint condition with one TINY touched up spot on a point (of course) that you probably wouldnt notice if I hadn’t told you it was there. The other points are fine and the guitar shows no other wear.

Neck is awesome, plays great and feels incredible. No fret wear, no issues.

Original case and COA as pictured, are included, the case has one messed up latch, but works fine, which is fortunate because finding another case would be impossible:)

If you love FFDD and Zoltan Bathory, this is as rare as it gets. Grab it before I come to my senses and keep it.

 

 

Info:

 This is the Dean USA Zoltan AR6. #3 of 50

25.5″ scale. 1.70″ nut width. .88″ depth at the 5th fret. 8.1 lbs. Zoltan Bathory, and his band Five Finger Death Punch, define the new breed of pure aggression as music. Pummeling rhythms and screaming leads blazing a new path through metal. And who better then Dean USA to design a guitar when blazing new paths is the order.

Zoltan and Dean teamed up to build a guitar that is simply as cutting edge and dangerous looking as it gets. Based on Zoltan’s love of firearms and weaponry the AR6 pulls its moniker and upper horn ‘handle’ from the AR15 rifle. The profile of the body is reminiscent of the Dean ML, but with a severely edgier look. Bathed in Ferrari red the guitar screams ‘speed’. One of the coolest design touches is the carbon fiber insert in the legs of the V, which becomes super 3D under lights. The USA DMT pickups are powerful and dynamic, with superb attack and tight bottom end. The bright yellow tint of the humbucker bobbins jumps off the Ferrari background.

The maple neck has a satin finish that feels almost naked, for a super fast and smooth playing surface. The ebony fretboard has 24 frets with signature inlays, and the profile slants in a manner that follows the way Zoltan’s hand is most comfortable when hammering out the chords. Another great ergonomic touch is the output jack location at the rear of the upper V leg ideally placed for wireless units. And what true metal guitar from Dean would be complete without a Floyd Rose bridge to deal out the harmonic abuse.
