This is my Jackson Kelly XL Professional , story on how I came to own it and history to be continued....
This is my 1982 Dean Baby Z. There are a lot of options on this particular Baby that make it stand entirely away from the rest of the line.
Here is what was offered in 1982/1983
1982: The new Baby Z is offered.
The new baby Z has a Poplar Body with an unbound Poplar neck and Rosewood Fretboard w/ Dots.
A single Dimarzio Super Distortion. Schaller wraparound

I used the CGG to create the image of what it should look like when it's done. I've included 2 images of what I am starting with, as for hardware.. I stripped all the factory components. I'll be sending this to a luthier and having the factory finish stripped from the head stock and body. Once that is done I need to make a choice, keep this neck or find a 22 fret bound with sharkfins. New hardware , Custom Floyd Rose (Gold) , Grover Mini Roto-Grip Locking Rotomatics (505 Series) (Gold) , EMG 57/66
This thing likes to change color on me. If I get pictures that show a drasticly new color, I will post them here. Mainly so I have them all in one spot instead of always hunting them down as I need them.
