TAMPA, FL — Dean Guitars amps up its Select Series with the introduction of the Cadi Select 3 Pickup Classic Black. Featuring the addition of a third Seymour Duncan pickup in the middle position, the Cadi Select 3 is built for excellent attack and tone, offering all the appointments of a beloved classic model at an affordable price point that won’t break the bank.
A guitar that focuses on excellent tone should also focus on playability, and that’s exactly what Dean delivers with the Cadi Select 3. It all starts with high-quality materials and thoughtful design, including Dean’s Cadillac-style, all-mahogany body with a classic flat top. The iconic cutaway provides easy access to the 3-piece mahogany neck, supported by the highly resonant set-thru neck construction and reliably sturdy dual-action truss rod. To top it off, 5-ply W/B/W/B/W body and headstock binding, along with single-ply neck binding, add an extra splash of class, while black hardware pushes the edge.
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 eye-catching, V-shaped headstock assist with precise and consistent tuning. The included D'Addario EXL120 nickel wound strings provide a super light gauge set with maximum flexibility and biting tone.
When it’s time to rock, players have all the control they need with the Cadi Select 3’s Seymour Duncan pickups, all black with sandblasted pole pieces. The SH-5 Custom at the bridge delivers bigger, beefier P.A.F. (Patent Applied For) tone for searing leads and huge chords. The pure attack is ideally complemented by matching APH-1 Custom pickups in the middle and neck positions. These pickups provide endless tones for any style, from clean to aggressive rock and everything in between. Audio taper pots activated with the 5-way rotary knob provide for smooth roll without destroying tone. Speed black volume and tone knobs round out the controls.
The legendary Cadi Select 3 Pickup Classic Black is designed for professional musicians who love classic guitars without the vintage price tag. Dean packages up the high-end appointments at an affordable MSRP $1429/street $949.
