Product Description

The Dean EAB Electric Acoustic Bass is the perfect starter bass guitar for the beginning bass player.
Now you can play bass with or without an amp! This is a comfortable bass that's loud enough for jam sessions with acoustic guitar players, and has the on-board electronics to let you take it right up on stage. For home recording, an acoustic bass is absolutely perfect because you get an incredible sound and you don't have to spend time finding the sweet spot miking up a speaker cabinet.

Features include a select spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a passive piezo pickup system.

Dean is really doin' it right with the Electric Acoustic Bass.

It's great for quieter practice when unplugged but provides plenty of punch plugged in.

I love this thing
What is your opinion of this product?
This is my 1st EAB. The build quality is much better than I expected. I can finally practice whenever, where ever. My only regret is that a 5 string was not available at the time.

Super value Acoustic Bass with remarkably good volume
What is your opinion of this product?
Great value and good backyard or campfire bass. Its inexpensive enough that taking it out of the house into the woods won't make you panic about the setup. But the Playmate sounds unusually loud so you can theoretically keep up with other acoustic instruments. Don't expect low action and light touch, it takes work to play a cheap AB with any kind of volume and no fret buzz.

Worth every penny and more
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this bass.. I'm absolutely in love with it, it sounds absolutely fantastic and I don't think I could have found a better bass for the money. I've actually purchased other basses for far more than this that didn't sound half as good.

Amazed what I got for the money!
What is your opinion of this product?
My overall opinion of this acoustic/electric bass is that it is a tremendous value worth every penny I spent on it. I played a few other more expensive e/a style basses in music store's before making my purchase. They had smaller voices and I was certain they wouldn't be able to keep up with acoustic guitars.
The Quality of this instrument at this price point is part of what makes it such a value. The body is large (huge in fact) and well voiced, the neck is straight and adjustable with the included truss rod. The electronics on the unit i received are in good working order. Just a simple passive setup with volume and tone control.
The features of the Dean EAB were exactly as expected after all the research I did. There are a couple of things I may change at a later date like the saddle and nut which are perfectly functional out of the box. My favorite Feature of this Dean Bass is the playability combined with it's large acoustic voice. An instant classic with me. I find myself picking it up all the time.
I'll get to the finish and the strings later. Overall This Bass has a Great feel the neck is very easy to play. The body is very large and can be uncomfortable depending on your posture, size etc. That big body and that full big voice easily make up for all that.
Out of the box my EAB came with the factory Round wound steel strings. They sounded good but they were far to bright and snappy add to that extra noise these kind of strings cause on an instrument of this style and they were only on there a day. After replacing them with a fresh set of Roto-Sound black nylon standard gauge long scale strings this bass really came alive. Warm Smooth tones Yup! Dark and Smooth yup! Still has plenty of bright and snappy too!! I worried these strings would effect the volume but the voice stayed as strong as ever. I'd recommend everyone to try this so the sound of your callouses moving along the rounds wounds won't drive you insane. That sound is fine on a guitar. Not so on a Bass. All in All I love the tone of this instrument with either string choice. ((I did have to file the nut just enough to seat the Large Roto-sound Strings properly))
The Overall finish of My Dean EAB is good. There is a small imperfection in the rosette around the sound hole and a second small imperfection in the black lines of the binding near the top face of the body. Hardly a deal breaker again considering the price point. I did have to buff out the back of the neck as there were some rough spots in the finish probably from dust. A brillo pad and a buffing rag took care of that. Neck is now smooth as can bee.
Again considering the cost of this bass I feel got even more than I could have hoped for. At this price simply getting an instrument that stays in tune should be miraculous. This Bass delivers much more than that.
After buffing out the neck and replacing the strings this bass plays Great!! Honestly it played nice right out of the box. I highly recommend this to anyone on a budget or for a knock around or front porch or campfire instrument.

Very good looking & very good playability
What is your opinion of this product?
I received this as a gift on 12-26-13. It has a flawless finish. The action was perfect just like I like it. Very good quality. My only complaint is the electronics are passive & they don't work at all.
It has great workmanship, good finish & I feel like it would be good for any kind of music.
Quality wise, it's great. What I really like is the way the neck feels & the action is just right.
Yes, they are very handy IF THEY WORKED!!
The acoustic tone is very good. But I cannot comment on the electric sound since the electronics don't work.
It has a satin finish which I did not think I'd like, but the finish is clean & flawless. If you use some good guitar polish on it, it really brings out the satin finish.
Tho this was a gift, I looked it up & the price range is something any musician can afford. I have not seen any other with this quality anywhere close to this price.
Everyone likes different action. This one was quite good, but I tightened the truss rod about 3/4 of a turn & WOW, absolutely perfect.

You get what you pay for
What is your opinion of this product?
The Dean EAB Acoustic Electric Bass has the potential to be a great product, but sadly lacks features that would make it usable in a stage performance or group acoustic performance environment.
Quality seems inconsistent. The basic instrument appears to be generally made well but the passive electronics are inadequate. The unit I received had a hairline stress crack in the finish around the neck joint at the heel (could be a problem down the road but no structural damage was apparent).
The passive electronics were disappointing, even when plugged into my most powerful bass amp. An under-saddle pickup really needs a preamp. There was no second strap pin - only one at the tail end of the body. I can't imagine where the other end of a strap would be attached without another pin.
The passive electronic controls are easily accessible. The body is very big, as one might expect, and may be uncomfortable for some people to play while seated.
Unplugged, the bass sounds like an acoustic guitar. It's not very loud at the lower frequencies when playing with my fingers. Unless playing alone (or maybe with a pick), you'll need an amp to keep up with other instruments - even in an all-acoustic setting.
The finish was the only impressive part of the instrument. I ordered the gloss black model and the finish was perfect.
My expectation was as low as the price - but sometime you'll get a "good one" that surprises you. That's what I was hoping for. I ultimately repaired the stress crack in the finish, replaced the electronics, and added a second strap pin. After all was said and done I spent 50% more. I could have gotten another brand with active electronics for the same price.
The action was high, otherwise the round-wound strings will create a lot of fret buzz. I adjusted the neck (with tool provided) to improve the action a little. Some may try switching out the strings for flat-wounds to get the strings a little lower without buzz, but that may reduce the bright acoustic tone.
