Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Bass seems to be well made. I have hadit for about eight months and I play pretty hard, and the bass sounds good, stays in tune well,and has been very dependable. so far. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The eq knobs are very sensitive. A slight turn and you will get a completely different tone. This allows you to get almost any tone you could want. The Pick-up is super powerful. The bass is easy to play. I love the neck it is smooth and fast. General Your general opinion of this product. I have never been a Dean fan but all of the reviews I read and the fact that This bass was so affordable helped me make my decision. I was thinking I might have to send it back. but it is way better than I expected. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I guess the brightness impresses me the most but is can also boom if you want it too. It always seems clear whatever tone you play. It certainly not thin. The Humbucker is way more versatile than expected. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? My bass is beautiful. The paint was fine. I looked over it right out of the box and am impressed with the paint, the tuners are nice and overall craftmanship look and feel great!

General Your general opinion of this product. I have never been a huge Dean fan and I thought I would have to trade it, I am so glad I bought it. It has the looks, feel, and playability of a much more expensive Bass. It is awesome. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? My bass seems to be made very well. It was perfect right out of the box. It feels very sturdy and the quality feels like that of a much more expensive Bass. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The Pick up is awesome. For a single pick up it has the ability to cover a large spectrum of tones. I also like the neck, it is very smooth and very easy to play. I guess a middle freq. knob would be nice but its just fine as is. General Your general opinion of this product.

I have played a variety of styles and have been content with the tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint is very nice. I have gotten lots of compliments.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The only compliant I would have is the neck. It does not have any clear coat on it. I will probably do that myself later. One of the tone controls was loose and had to be tightened. Bridge had to be adjusted- Too much buzzing. Very dependable with staying in tune and neck is very easy to play. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The pick up is awesome! Almost like a sound between a Fender P Bass & a Music Man. General Your general opinion of this product. I would give this bass a 9 out of 10, mainly because of the back of the neck being bare wood. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You can actually get a nice even mix of bright/snappy to dark/smooth tones. My theory is you can always get a bass to give you dark/smooth tones, but it is hard to find a bass that will give you bright/snappy tones that are clear without having to add strings such as Rotosound. This bass gives you what ever tone you are looking for! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint was great!
