Dean Guitars is extremely excited to announce Jacky Vincent of Falling in Reverse as an official Dean artist. Jacky is recognized as one of the top young super shredders in the business and Falling In Reverse is poised for a huge year with video views for recent releases topping over 10 million per song. Jacky has a new monthly Guitar World Magazine column called "United Stringdom" and was also recognized as the AP MAGAZINE 2012 GUITARIST OF THE YEAR, a huge accomplishment!. AP Magazine is second only to Rolling Stone magazine in it's distribution and is an extremely influential magazine amongst young musicians. Jacky is the real deal and we are looking forward to many years of artistic success and collaboration with this dazzling guitarist. Jacky's style is heavily influenced by the likes of Randy Rhodes as well as Dean artists Michael Angelo Batio (who Jacky sites as one of his guitar heros) and Rusty Cooley (who was invited to solo duals on the new Falling In Reverse album).
In addition, Jacky has been collaborating with the Dean USA custom shop on the development of an 80's inspired shred-happy double-cut guitar (the prototype can be seen in the video)!
I am super stoked to be working with Dean Guitars. Some of my favorite guitar heros are Dean artists and to actually now be side by side with some of my favorite artists is a dream come true. I love the instruments, I've been using the Dean C550 live for Falling In Reverse for sometime and the guitar is delivering beyond expectation. I used a Dean Z for my Guitar World video lessons and it's just great, and of course, I am beyond words with enthusiasm for my Dean USA custom electric guitar. So get ready! This is a big milestone for me, thanks Dean Guitars!!
