Dean Guitars releases Cadi Select 3 Pickup Classic Black


Dean Guitars introduces the Cadi Select 3 Pickup Classic Black from their Select Series . This edition has a third Seymour Duncan pickup in the middle position.

Dean’s Cadillac-style, all-mahogany body with a classic flat top has a cutaway to provide easy access to the 3-piece mahogany neck, supported by the set-thru neck construction and dual-action truss rod. It has a 5-ply W/B/W/B/W body and headstock binding, along with single-ply neck binding, with black hardware. All specs are below the article.

Like other Select Series models, the Cadi Select 3 offers a satin neck for ease of playing and endurance. The V-shaped neck has a 22 jumbo fret ebony fingerboard with pearloid block inlays and a 12” radius. The Cadi Select 3 measures in at 24 3/4-inch scale length with a standard 1 11/16-inch nut width. The Tune-O-Matic bridge on Dean’s exclusive, high-mass Cadi hardtail provides for easy intonation and sustain. Grover tuners on the V-shaped headstock are mounted for tuning. The guitar comes with D’Addario EXL120 nickel wound strings standard.

The guitars have 3 Seymour Duncan pickups, all black with sandblasted pole pieces. The SH-5 Custom at the bridge. The complementary matching APH-1 Custom pickups go in the middle and neck positions. They come with a 5-way rotary knob.

The retail price is set for MSRP $1429/street $949 (in the US).
