Excerpt: It's fun to play and looks awsome. But, I wouldn't go on stage with it or record with it in the studio. Zzounds, just look at your own pictures! It is obvious to a fault that the bridge/saddles are TOO SMALL. You can see that the strings are spaced wrong between the stop bar and bridge. Replace the bridge with one that fits. I would also recommend replacing the pickups with rails at the least.
Summary: Every once in while you get a product that completely surpasses what you expected for the money you paid. And this one is it. Dean guitars did great in this line. Not only the action is perfect, but also the finish and the pickups to the body, everything is great. The pickups are sufficient. I play this through Fender tube amp. I can just imagine this guitar would sound fantastic through a Fender Twin Reverb.
Excerpt: I was looking for the 60's beatles, searchers, byrds 12 string electric sound and i got it in spades and at a bargain price - the boca 12 sounds great in all pickup configurations and inspires better playing I found it very compatible with one of my musical sytles.
Excerpt: The guitar LOOKS PLAYS AND SOUNDS Great with a CAPITAL G.It gets that electric 12 string sound.I imagine it also depends on what amp it is going in.Sounds great in my Fender,Vox,And Marshall.I read some reviews that said its not good for Metal ? Who would buy a 12 string for that anyway ?
"Way to go guys, you hit it out of the park with this one!!"

Excerpt: I must say I'm extremely pleased with the Dean 'Boca' Elelctric 12 string. The only effect I use with it at all is a little chorus now and then, otherwise it has a unique sound that definately fills the bill for me. The balanced humbucking pickups are just right for this semi-hollow body(I'm quick to change these if not), and as far as the tuner keys Grover says it all.
