I just got my BZburst 4 days ago through mail. I used to be a big Epiphone/Gibson "V" fan but ever since I bought my first Dean V (Michael Schenker), I'm never gonna switch to a different brand ever. The Dean VX model beats my epiphone & gibson flying V by a mile. The stock pickups sounds way better. You can play any style of music from blues to metal and the neck is just built for shredding (although the Michael Schenker has a fatter neck than the VX). But still, for the price, IT IS THE BEST GUITAR out there. If you're thinking of getting a really good quality guitar, get this one and I promise you, you will not regret getting it!!!!

I shouldn't have bought this guitar. Sure, it looks nice but is horrible to play. The action goes bad fast, so you have to adjust the Truss Rod, Which if yours is like mine, won't work. I had to lower the bridge, and now there's fret buzz (and the 22 frets are noiseless). The Pickups are horrible. They give out a muddy distortion, with tons of static sound. The Clean isn't that good either. The only good Things are the grover tuners. I only recomend this guitar to a player who isn't serious about playing. If you want a similar guitar in this price range buy an epiphone flying V. They have a much higher quality throughout. This guitar lasted me for about 4 months before a manditory upgrade (Gibson Sg with P-90 Pickups which i highly recommend). Don't Buy this guitar.

    Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

    This was my first guitar I ever bought. I've had it for almost 10 years now, this is what I learned to play now and after all this time and now that I am an experienced player, its been easily one of if not my favorite guitar. This guitar was built with the purpose to shred and play metal. The neck is very thin and sleek, has easy access to all frets and even with stock electronics, it deliver great tone. Over the years I have owned/or played Jackson dinkys, Gibson les pauls, SG, strats, LTD's ect. and while they are all great guitars, when it comes to comfort and ease of play this is my go to guitar, I absolutely recommend it.

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      Ive been playing guitar for well over 7 years and i know a good guitar when i play one and this one is an excellent inexpencive guitar that wont brake your wallet. ive been looking for a cheap guitar that i could jam and play shows with and pretty much beat the hell out of to try and save my fender strat. i picked this up at my local guitar shop and started playing it and was amazed by the feel and tone. i had just got paid and bought this on instinct and i dont regret it at all, i cant set this thing down for a minute. the pick ups are not my cup of tea though so i will be replacing them with dimarzio crunch lab and liquifier further along the line. also mines didnt come with grover tuners but i had an extra set laying around so i screwed them on and this thing plays like a champ. you can not go wrong with this guita.

      Great Platform for Upgrades

      By joe ransdell

      from Constantinople

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      Overall I would say this is an excellent guitar for guys who like to hot rod their axes, it plays exceptionally well for the price it has a great neck and sweet Grover tuners on that awesome Dean V headstock, once hot rodded it will easily hang with the big boys! Great guitar for entry level provided that the purchaser can or knows someone who can perform some basic luthier work. I am basing this on the two Dean guitars that I own and also on other reviews here listing problems with wiring and electronics, once I loaded mine with new pots, switch and pickups (all for around $150) it plays like a $700 or $800 dollar axe and a has a killer vintage look, I highly reccomend this axe for the price!
      Having some credit @ a local music store I picked up a Dean VX Brazilian Burst for my son for $200. After about six months of collecting dust and him showing no interest it became mine. I liked the guitar because it played well (like a much more expensive instrument) and had a great vintage look with the cream and black zebra humbuckers and chrome hardware. It had a very fasy and playable neck and the Grover tuners speak for themselves.
      Physically the neck, body and hardware are above average for and entry level priced instrument, playability exceeded my expectations. The electronics however are a different story, start with the pickups they look great, but their sound is what is to be expected from stock pickups on a guitar of this price range, The switch was bad from the factory, playing one pickup or the other, but not both from the center position, I checked the wiring, no bad solder joints just a defective switch, ironically I had this exact problem with my Dean Dime DB Razorback. I put in DiMarzio 500K custom taper pots, and a new mechanical toggle switch, and loaded it with a pair of Wilde Bill's L500 Twin Blade pickups, For a finishing touch I put some black speed knobs that "Go To Eleven" Now this axe plays and sounds as good as my more expensive guitars and I was even able to order the L500's in black and cream zebra coils to retain the killer vintage look!
      Despite the electronics issues I feel this guitar is an excellent value for the money, especially for someone who doesn't have the cash to pay for USA Custom Shop guitars and likes to hot rod their axes. Typically I purchase midrange guitars $400-$600 and then upgrade the pots and pickups so this was perfect. It plays as well as my Jackson King V and my B.C.Rich Kerry King Beast V, even if it didn't sound as good out of the box.

      Great find at a solid price

      By Ben Plesser

      from On a corner like a real musician

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      This was my first guitar that I ever bet. Sol, as I named him, has served me well for a while. There was a period when I put him down for a prolonged time because of a faulty input which coincidentally coincided with the purchase of a different guitar. Honestly though, I think that with the revamped electronics I prefer this baby to my $700 Epiphone. Great value, great instrument. Love this baby and intend to rock it out for many more years to come.
      The key feature here is definately the maple neck. Its cut perfectly and is so smooth that your hands almost glide as you play this baby.
      Everything on this guitar is top notch except the electronics. I had some trouble with the input and the pickups were what you would expect on a standard store bought guitar (iffy at best). We replaced the electronics with an EMG active pickup and since then this baby has been killer.
      The value here is top notch. With a little work this can be a great instrument for any guitarist of any level.

      Great Backup or practice Axe!

      By OcAxeman

      from Ocean City Md

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      Ive had my "Dean VX" for over 2 years now and I just wanted to let all my fellow players know that it has held up VERY well,I bought a "Dean VX" Because I needed an Axe to grab when I was headed out to a buddy's house for a jam session, road tripping or basically any situation where I did not want to use My Mid to Higher end Guitars,In other words a pure "Beater Axe",But the "VX" really stole my heart and pretty much blew me away for being such an Inexpensive,more or less "Entry level axe" it plays very well,sounds gr8,and quite honestly is a much better guitar then a lot of axes costing 2-3 times as much,I know there are a lot of players who might be a bit Leary of buying such an Inexpensive Axe, thinking it probably is a piece of garbage that sounds Crappy,wont stay in tune,and plays like a telephone pole,but this is simply NOT the case,the "Dean VX" is a really Decent all around guitar for the Money.

      dean VX all the way

      By Tevin

      from waterbury CT

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      this guitar is amazing. its worth every penny. i got it becuase i have know about dean for sometime now and i was looking for a new guitar and i said ill give it a shot. well, im glad i did this is one of the best guitars i have ever played in my life. the pickups are wondeful and very sensitive, the neck is smooth and slim so you can play very fast and it has an average weight. and it also looks very cool, classical, yet has a more modern theme to it. and the gloss black paint makes it stand out. all in all it met passed out all of my expectations. from this day forth i shall only play DEAN!!!

      Just An OK. Guitar

      By Sound Evolutioner

      from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

      Comments about Dean VX Electric Guitar:

      I have owned the black version for nearly 2 years. Pros: Nice Looks, Strong Body, Easy to Play. Cons: Too Heavy, Uncomfortable to Carry, doesn't keeps tuned for long, the plug-in hole tends to unscrew periodically, the knobs don't really work(you have to set them all on max to get a decent sound). Overall, if you have another axe, it's an Ok. guitar. If you plan to use it as your main axe, I wouldn't suggest it. If it's going to be your first guitar, better get a tele or strat by fender(they even include a gig bag), they're a little pricier but you'll never regret it.
