This bass is probably your best bet to buy for a limited budget or want a great sounding bass. I have played with some other basses and they do not compete with this bass for the value and quality. No matter what you are, this bass will fulfill your needs and you will have extra money to buy an amp or effects. So overall, this is an amazing bass for a cheap affordable price.

I've had this bass for 5 months now and i thought i would write a review. There are a few pros and cons about this bass and thought i would let everyone know before they bought it. One amazing thing about this bass is its look. It looks amazing every time i look at it im still amazed that its mine, and where ever you go your bound to get several comments about it. Other than its original shape the sound is very good and clear. I used DR strings and D'addario and i prefer D'addario. Now the thing i dont like about this bass is the way you have to hold it combined with the action. After playing this bass for 5 months ive went to guitar center and played a normal shaped bass and i couldnt believe how fast i was able to play. This bass really takes away from playing fast and im disappointed because now i have to get a new bass so i can use my speed and have a good sound.

Metalman V

By Richard Kubik

from New Jersey

Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

The bass is neither lacking, nor high on my list of basses with baubles... like a P bass, it has a basic tone, volume and input. it has a neck, a bridge, and it has 4 strings... not that much to complain about, the only major complaints that i have are that it doesnt fit onto any stand that i own..(its huge)... and this doesnt really matter, because it stands on its own.. and it doesnt pick up the D, and G strings all that well... i have to try a different string gauge, but with the ones that Dean reccomend, it has very little upper end. the bass is Extremely light. its lighter than my actual guitar is... great when you're playing for a long time.. and add onto all of that, the fact that its a V.... well, it can only be beat by the MLV2A and the Razorback V...

Awesome bass at a good price!

By Judas

from Northern CA

Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

Sweet metal tone without a sharp pain in your wallet! All I can say is, if you're looking for a good bass at a good price, you can't go wrong with this one.
It finnaly arrived! I swapped out the stock strings with strings of my choice, then tuned it up. This thing has *killer* tone and looks for a price that's easy on your wallet! Action is a bit high for my taste, but that's easily fixed. If you want a wonderful sounding bass without breaking the bank, then this is for you!
*WAY* higher quality than I was expecting. Thick, heavy body and the soapbar pickup performs *beautifully*.
You *definantly* get a lot for your money on this one!

Only for rocking on stage or standing up

By D

from McDonough GA

Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

This is a pretty good sounding bass, the lows and mids have fairly rich tones, highs are a bit weak though. This bass looks cool, though the design is a little frustrating. So if you ever want to sit down while you play bass, then this bass is not for you. The pickups are also ridiculously far from the neck for whatever reason. If you are good at plucking quick metal riffs then this bass will be awkward, as it seems to be more set up for someone who picks bass. All in all this thing looks sick, and definitely is awesome on stage, but this should be a backup or gig only bass, just because it is simply impractical just for playing.

Worth every penny!

By R. Reyell

from Plattsburgh, NY

Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

I picked this beast up the other day, and for the price ya can't beat it. plays solid, looks awesome, and the neck is nice and easy to get your fingers around. The soap bar pickup gives all you need for the "rumble" especially in drop D tuning. I've always bought Dean guitars and after buying this beaut, I'll swear by Dean in 4-string's as well.

No frills, solid rock bass

By Storm-J1Z_X

from Austin, TX

Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

I've already dropped a grand on a "real" bass for technical playing, so now I'm having fun with cheaper, exotic-shaped basses for easy banging in my rock 'n roll band. This bass is fine for playing live. It's got decent tone and a nice feel (it's especially easy to get to the higher frets). In terms of value I'd compare it to my Epiphone Thunderbird IV--not pro level by any stretch, but easy on the wallet and ready for fun. On the negative side, I'm going to have to get this bass set up because the action is way-high and the intonation goes out by the 9th fret.
