I have had this bass for almost two years, and to be honest, I love it. When I first got it, it sounded great. Only problem was it was a bit uncomfortable from frets 1-3 while sitting down, but it was fine when standing. I love Dean, and I wouldn't play anything else. However, there is a bit of a recent problem. I have been getting a lot of fuzz from the bass, and I was thinking of replacing the stock pickups for some EMGs. All in all, works great, but a hardware upgrade wouldnt be a bad idea.

I bought this guitar becuase it looks cool and thought it would sound amazing...but i was dead wrong. I play in a metal band and when I played this guitar during one of my shows it was horrible. Its easy tp play but it's really uncomfortable and the tone sounds like trash. i play every style of music and it does not sound good for any type. Don't waste your money on this bass or any guitar by dean, trust me, there are a lot more better brands than dean

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

This review is a mixed bag. I love this bass. Looks great, fun to play and I love active pickups in a bass.
Mine is custom painted and looks killer onstage.
When everything is set "just so" it sounds incredible, BUT ...
1 - The neck is a bit on the thick side for my liking thought not what I would call uncomfortably so.
2 - Turning the pots all the way up or all the way down frequently caused buzzing and over-modulation issues, which of course you want to avoid in recording and live situations.
It is my hope that swapping out the pots for better quality ones will cure this problem
All that being said, when it is dialed in, this thing is bad to the bone, which to me makes it worthwhile to make improvements to and keep.

Awesome Bass

By Kurt Kopatich

from Rosemount, MN

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

This bass was purchased on black friday last year and ever since, it has been played almost every day with no problems at all. The electronics are solid, and it produces a great heavy, punchy sound. It has no problem staying in tune, and I think this bass is great for the beginner, or bassist on a budget. Well worth the money!

Very disappointed!

By Jimmy L.

from Union, NJ

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

I had to order this bass because it was out of stock in the store. It "looked" nice in the internet picture on Guitar Center website. After waiting 2 weeks for it to arrive, it was a birthday present for my son, I looked at it briefly in the box and it seemed ok at a glance. Almost a week later I gave it to my son and right when he took it out of the box he noticed that the knobs were all very loose and when plugged in to amp didn't even work. The cover plate on the opposite side of the knobs; backside of bass, was a little loose. I took the plate off and the wiring for the knobs was all broken apart. Not to mention the soldering looked like a 3 year old did it. Very cheap and poor craftsmanship. I called the store and the next day brought it in for store credit with manager. He said he had never heard of this being like this before from the factory. Whatever. I got my son a nice Epiphone Bass for a little cheaper and my son loves it. Stay away from this bass - poor quality.

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

the new dean 2A basses with active electronics are very brutal basses indeed! And these basses create powerful tone and the great thing about the actives in it is i dont have to turn my amp up that loud to shake the windows in my house or at the shows. great deal!

Buy It !!

Best Bass Ever

By 4 String Mike

from georgetown texas

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

I've played some basses but this one is by far the best one out there. It's growl is so plesent to the ear and I've played Razorbacks and I still prefer The Dean 2A Z Metalman Bass with Active Electronics. I give this thing a 5 because its flawless. I cant think of anything wrong with it. I prefer it over Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, and DEFENANLY OVER ESP ANY DAY! This bass is just all Around fun And will improve if not make you a better bass player.

Made for METAL

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Metalman 2A Z Bass Guitar:

This bass is very easy to hold, that is its main advantage over a V. Its easy to finger, and has insane power, the pick-ups do make a difference (they are adjustable on one of the knobs). If you turn up all the knobs to 10, you might have a problem, but it might just be my puny rig. This thing packs power if anything else, the pickups will kill you at 10. I use it with a Digi-tech Metal Master and they work togeather perfectly. It is gorgeous, just gorgeous! It has a beautiful black paint job, Red handsaw inlays that really stand out and terrifying Skull Ruby keys, something only dean could add. Uunfortunately it is not as sharp as it appears but from far away you wont be able to tell. If you want METAL this bass defines the word. Jump for the extra $$$ and get the 2a.
