Los Angeles, CA (October 31, 2019) -- Dean Guitars is proud to announce the addition of thrash-punk legend, Kerry King of Slayer, to its artist roster. Kerry comes on-board as a signature artist, with a brand new, never-before-seen guitar design.

"I'm super stoked to be part of the Dean Guitars family. This has been an insane long time coming! Together we're going to create some amazing guitars that Dean, Slayer, and Kerry King fans will be as excited as I am to play them. It's gonna be a wild ride for years to come!"
