DBZ Guitars Writes a New Chapter in Metal History with the “The Dark Side of Dean” Guitar Line

Northbrook, IL, July 31, 2009 --(PR.com)-- DBZ Guitars is pleased to announce a new series of distinctive metal guitars, The Darkside of Dean. The Darkside line is a new offering of uniquely carved masterpieces straight from the darkest depths of legendary guitar builders Dean B. Zelinsky’s mind. “The Darkside series is designed for the sophisticated player, who is searching for a simply "over the top" metal instrument.”- Says CEO and founder of DBZ guitars, Dean B. Zelinsky.

Dean Zelinsky is no stranger to metal. His guitar creations are played and have been played by metal & rock royalty on stages across the world for decades. Armed with 30 years of knowledge and experience, DBZ has created a guitar line like no other specifically for his fans and fans of the genre. “Great tone, feel and incredible playability have always been the bottom line, but now by embracing advances in woodworking technology we can create anything we can imagine. The Darkside line is no exception, we’ve pushed the boundaries to create sculpted masterpieces with all the tone and magic that breath new life into modern day Metal.” -Dean B. Zelinsky

The “Dark Side of Dean” consists of three unique and darkly ornate models:

DBZ Bird of Prey
The Bird of Prey is a carved masterpiece that unites form with function. Available in a variety of custom colors and graphics with a highly contoured body. Like all Darkside models the Bird of Prey comes standard with EMG 81 and 85 active humbuckers providing all the intensity and depth needed to compliment it’s animalistic design. The Bird of Prey’s easy access 24-fret neck gives players the ability to tear up the fretboard in style while lending their music a visual punch to the gut.

DBZ Venom
The Venom is a deeply visceral V-style guitar. Like the Bird of Prey, Zelinsky uses modern technology not only as a method for precision and efficiency but as a means to realize the menacing sculpture that lies beneath the tone wood. The Venom comes loaded with EMG pickups, original Floyd Rose tremolo and show stopping graphic options. Anti-Venom not included.

DBZ Halcyon
The Halcyon is a radical re-imagining of a classic style. The Halcyon is a sleek double cutaway guitar that balances classic functionality with modern metal sensibilities. Like the Bird of Prey and The Venom, the Halcyon is loaded to the hilt with EMG pickups, Original Floyd Rose Tremolo, easy 24-fret access and set neck construction. Available in high impact colors and radical off-the-hook graphics including the Vertigo and the Death Dealer.
