For over 30 years, Dean Zelinsky has been designing guitars for music artists on stages all over the world. Please see the DBZ Guitars Experience to see the entire line-up. Dean B. Zelinsky has been a Master Guitar Builder since 1976, and was the founder of the original Dean Guitars Company. Dean Zelinsky says it best, "it all matters" when it comes to incorporating design, quality and detail level for all DBZ (electric, acoustic, and bass) guitars to the exacting standards that the world expects from Dean. As the legendary Kerry Livgren of the rock band Kansas once said, "Dean is the only guitar builder who has achieved rock star status."
Designed by Master Guitar Builder Dean B. Zelinsky the DBZ Imperial AB features a unique ultra thin body only 5/8” thick at the very edge. Zelinsky designed this guitar to be an extremely live and resonant instrument capable of endless sustain.
Exceptionally responsive, you can literally feel the strings vibrating from the edge of the body to the tip of the headstock.
The body, cut from high-grade mahogany and capped with rock hard maple, comes loaded with DBZB/DBZ5 pickups with Coil Tap. The set mahogany neck is shaped to Dean Zelinsky’s signature profile known for it’s extreme comfort and speed. The Imperial AB produces a warm, well-rounded & clearly defined tone making it a suitable choice for all styles of music, including Rock, Blues, Jazz and Country. The Imperial AB is adorned with upgraded pearloid purfling.
