Dean loads the Shire semi hollowbody with both humbuckers for great electric tone as well as a piezo pickup for outstanding acoustic sound as well! This combination, along with the ability to blend the two sounds, makes the Shire an incredibly dynamic and versatile guitar to take to your next gig. It has a semi-hollow maple body with an arched maple top and f-holes for a timeless appearance. It's well-balanced and comfortable to play and has a relatively shallow body depth of 1-3/4 inch. The set maple neck comes in a C shape with a rosewood fingerboard and pearl block inlays.
Chrome hardware includes Grover tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge with a piezo pickup. And that's where the sonic fun begins. A 3-way toggle for the humbuckers and a mini pickup selector lets you mix the 2 worlds to taste.
