Not horrible for the price
Not that well made. It has a grounding problem (easily fixed by soldering bridge area to input jack), but you get what you paid for.
I've only had it for about 4 months and haven't had any NEW problems. Scratches easily though.
Your general opinion of this product.
For the price, it's a decent guitar if you are experienced only.
Neck is smooth, knobs are crap. Only "off" and "on" knobs, no in between.
Light cheap pickups produce decent tone...It sounds kind of dull when playing clean.
Light translucent black. Cheap, but cool.
Action was nearly perfect for me. I just easily raised the bridge about one millimeter.

Good Stuff!
I've been playing a guitar for about 8 years now, And I've had the honor of playing some of the most amazing guitars that our time has to offer, I wanted more of a metal sound out of a guitar, And I was having a hard time giving up the Fender name. But I went against my gut and bought a Dean Vendetta XM in natural satin, It's more of a cherry-wood color. Great tone! And an awesome metal sound! It is very light weight and easily played, The strings are perfect height right out of the box, I really dig the dual humbuckers. As well as the finish I chose, I've been playing on it for a while now, And I haven't found anything I really dislike. Great guitar, Great Price.
No problems with wear and tear as of now.
Your general opinion of this product.
It's perfect.
Feels very light. Almost delicate.
Mellow clean tone, Solid metal tone.
The finish is perfect!
It was perfect.

this guitar is built very well. this price is amazing for guitar with such great tone.
i have owned this for almost a year now, and it has held up quite well. the volume knob slips up every now and then, but it is still a very reliable guitar. (it has been dropped on the ground by accident multiple times.)
Your general opinion of this product.
a wonderful guitar.
this is the lightest guitar i have ever held. it's literally like lifting up a large stack of papers.
this tone is amazing for metal. the pickups sound like an EMG 81/85 set, but they still buzz a bit. they go from dark and beefy to light and airy.
although the black version looked good right out of the box, you cannpt see the wood grain through the finish at all. The natural satin finish looks wonderful though.
really good.

the Dean Vendetta
This guitar is intended for beginners. I'm a drummer but i can tell a poorly made guitar when i play one. The frets are not even so when you play certain notes, they are considerably sharp. As you go to the 12th fret and higher, you start to lose entire notes all together.
The tone knob doesn't hold. The Volume knob is falling off, and the screw for the chord input fell out.
Your general opinion of this product.
I think if you want to buy a guitar, you might as well just save another $100 and buy an Ibanez or an Epiphone
It's very light, i will say that. But other then that...
The pick-ups are decent but again, you get what you pay for.
The finish is not what it shows in the picture. For the Black Finish, you don't see the wood grain.
It was alright. (this was back when all the pieces were still together) It will need new strings though.

not what i thought it would be
I had got a dean vendetta as a present for graduation but it was hard to learn on with the floyd rose so i decided to buy a stringthru and it wasnt worth the bill i paid! The frets were poorly trimmed and scratch up my fingers. Plus the transparent black is actually flat black haha!
I had to fix the frets so other than that problem it will be an alright guitar to use to practice on.
Your general opinion of this product.
Dont buy it! Deans is an excellent guitar company but if i would have know that this guitar was going to be poorly made i would have reconsidered my opitions.
It seems to be a nice feel now that the frets are fixed.
Great!
Not so good, scrathes near the neck and the head was chipped but im sure that happened during shipping. Also the necks finish was scuffed all along the back all the way up the neck. Plus i was sorta dissapointed at the fact that the guitar was flat black when it awas advertised as transparent black.
Alright

DECENT for a $100 Guitar
Relative to the price, it's decent quality, though it does have a bit of an overall chincy feel.
The hardware feels a little less than secure, could require regular maintenance to keep everything tight.
Your general opinion of this product.
For a $100 guitar, it's really decent. It would be hard to find a better guitar for the same price, but you could easily find lesser ones.
Action and playability are pretty good overall, though I do have two big caveats here; firstly, the body is made of such a light wood, that laying my right arm over the guitar to hold it actually bends it out of tune. The other is that the crests of the bridge saddles are quite sharp, and if you lay your hand on the bridge to play, those things can bite.
More on the brighter, thinner side, but run through good effects it can sound pretty good.
Finish is fine.
Played as well as could be expected; didn't require any major adjustments out of the box. Comes strung with D'Addarios.
