What I like about this little stick is that I can sit in front of my computer/speakers and play songs on Real Player or Windows Media Player without having hook up a bulky amp. Then, when I get ready to gig, I can grab my "P" Bass and go to work with plenty of practice under my belt. The tone is great for what I am doing in my practice sessions. The neck and body are great to work with, as well. In general a great little bass to play around with. Haven't even plugged it in yet, much less tried to use it on a gig, so I don't know how it would sound through an amp.

I never saw this guitar in person before I had purchased it, BIG mistake! Never buy a guitar without fitting it to yourself. If it doesn't feel comfortable for you to hold naturally, then you know it isn't gonna feel comfortable to play. Anyways, back to the review of this DEAN EAB(C). When I first received this guitar, the first thing I wanted to do with it was to return it. I should have. I bought this Bass from Guitar Center, from this web site, back in 2010. Then, when I first received it, the neck had a minor twist to it at the thirteenth fret into fret twelve, it had a nice hump on the bottom of the neck where G & G# is located for a second time but an octave higher. But I don't like shipping stuff back so I corrected that problem myself. But as time went on and wear and tear occurs, it just so happens that wear and tear really took it's toll out on this DEAN bass prematurely cause the fret board(finger board) has started to peel away from the neck up by the nut where F, F# & G are under the E string frets 1, 2 & 3. Cool huh? Three years old and the guitar is already shot out. But the wear and tear really doesn't bother me because I only used the acoustic bass to practice hammering, slapping & popping quickly, and to practice fingering to keep fingering speed at a decent rate so it doesn't sound like a pulse rate or gallop. Hammering strings, slapping and popping strings, and maintaining a decent rhythm while fingering strings instead of strumming them with a pick on an acoustic bass guitar is loud enough inside of an apartment.

Good bass guitar for campfire jams!

By Matthew

Comments about Dean EAB Acoustic-Electric Bass:

Good sounding, good playing bass for the price. Large body is a little uncomfortable after a long time but not a big deal. Bridge is different than the one in the picture. Not a big deal, just shaped different. Small amount of fret buzz out of the box. Neck adjustment took care of most of fret buzz. Good for campfire jams!

I think this Guitar is great for beginners like me. It doesn't require cords or an amp so I can take it anywhere and continue playing and learning. I've only had it for 2 weeks, but I enjoy it and would definitely recommend it to a Bass Guitar Beginner like me.

    Comments about Dean EAB Acoustic-Electric Bass:

    I had never played an acoustic bass until I picked one up and played it at guitar center. It's a different feel than an electric bass, but it's perfect. The sound is rich and loud enough to hear with guitar and a cajon playing. The neck is long and the 12th fret is easily accessible, so even though it's not a cutaway, it works out just fine. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

        Had to do some minor tweaking to the nut and neck tension after it settled in up to pitch. Using it for practice and jamming. Taking it to a guitar circle. Fun. In between my P-bass and my upright in size and feel and easy to haul around. I was cautioned against the electronics, but I like the sound through my SWR 10. I think it has more potential as I get accustomed to it.

        Nice to have

        By Robby Wall

        from league city, tx

        Comments about Dean EAB Acoustic-Electric Bass:

        This bass is definitely a good price. And it's nice to have for small parties or campouts but it's not nearly loud enough for even a small acoustic gig. But that goes for any acoustic bass. The bass itself is decent but you get what you pay for. Pickup is terrible and it's all in all cheaply made. But it doesn't sound half bad. I'm still keeping it after a few modifications.

        Great acoustic bass

        By Brad Lewis

        from Carrollton, TX

        Comments about Dean EAB Acoustic-Electric Bass:

        I sat down an played several different acoustic basses for comparison. Keep in mind I was looking for a bass to play acoustically, so that is my primary concern. I played a Ovation and Ibanez, both had a bad tone and low volume. I played a Martin that was, of course, the sweetest of all. This guitar was just as loud as the loudest one (Martin) and had a great tone very close to the Martin. The only difference was the dean has a bit more fret buzz- but I play kind of hard. All the basses except the Martin had some buzz. I do notice that the one I ordered and received has a bit less buzz than the one in the store. Sure, I could raise the action some more, but it is already pretty high (the Martin had good action with no buzz) So comparing this to a $2000 bass and it comes in a close second. I really don't know why it is so cheap, but all costs ignored, it is a top notch bass. Oh, and is a big boy too! I only gave it 4 stars as the electronics are nothing special- probably what give is a cheaper price. But as I wanted it for acoustic only, its perfect!

        Comments about Dean EAB Acoustic-Electric Bass:

        The plate that holds the tone and volume control was missing a screw and the other was very loose. Everything else seems alright but did noy play it extensively. Did get some fret buzz on E string as others noted. Will see what happens in the process of returning and getting a new one sent-will write again then.
