DELLATERA Z-GLIDE CUSTOM - Dellatera " From the earth ”


The Dellatera Z-Glide Custom is Dean Zelinsky’s personal take on making a traditional 2-single-coil pickup guitar with something extra special. The unique body carve and narrowed waist cut creates a style that sets it apart from the sea of dual-single guitars. The highly figured Flame Maple top gives the Dellatera Custom a look like no other. The body is made from select Alder creating a light, yet better sustaining guitar…and yields the best overall tone. This guitar is very comfortable with weight averaging 7.5 lbs.


The Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck (Patented) gives players a feel that cannot be achieved by any other guitar. The precision engraving reduces surface area thus reducing friction between the hand and the guitar neck. Your hand only comes in contact with 30% of the necks surface...the rest is air. Players instantly notice the improved playability and feel. Designed by Dean Zelinsky this patent pending concept is exclusive to Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars.


The Dellatera Z-Glide Custom features a full 22-fret maple neck with rich rosewood 9.5" - 12" compound radius fingerboards. Locking tuners are a standard feature, along with TUSQ nuts and string retainers, allow for maximum sustain and assure you stay in tune.


The Dean Zelinsky Single Coil Pickups are slightly higher output but designed to still achieve ultimate vintage single coil sound. Many players reviewing the Dellatera say these are these Dean Zelinsky Singles are one of the best sounding single coils they have ever heard. Controls are a master volume, master tone control, and 3-Way Switch. Also has a SideKick Pickup in the Neck position. Get True Single-Coil and Vintage Humbucker tone all in one pickup, with no volume drop!!!


Dellatera necks are made of Canadian Rock Maple with Dean Zelinsky’s new soft 'C' profile. These necks are designed with Dean Zelinsky’s nearly four decades of experience of making guitars players love to play.


Dellatera Customs and Standards all have Locking Tuners with a 20:1 ratio as a standard feature. Combined with hard Graphite nuts, Graphite String Retainer and a modern string-thru bridge, these guitars stay in tune. Headstocks feature a Dean Zelinsky’s signature logo in a bright electro-formed nickel finish.
