Dean Guitars is Proud to Welcome Ashley Purdy of Black Veil Brides to the Dean Family. Co-designed by the bassist and the company, the basses are revamps of the existing models, with special graphics added to suit Purdy’s style. When Purdy first joined up with Dean, he played a Spire with custom graphics he did himself. This signature model replicates all of the “War Paint” graphics, and includes “Spire” fingerboard inlays. Other features include a Mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, Grover tuners, and a pair of DMT Design pickups with a 3-band active EQ.
