I just got mine an hour ago and all that I can say is that......If this is Dean's lowest entry level guitar I cannot wait to see what their other more expensive ones are like. This is a very light guitar compared to my Les Paul. It sounds great and resonates forever... The absolute best bang for your buck if you are a beginner on a tight budget. The tuners are not the greatest but those can be changed for under $50.00. The sound is awesome.... I have played others costing 5 times as much and this one blows them away. I got this as a practice guitar that I would not have to care for and worry about as much as my Les Paul. I must say that I see my LP sleeping in it's case for awhile now. I work nights and when I get home I want to play without waking the wife or the baby. This guitar is perfect for that because it sounds great even without an amp. It is very very light though and the wood grain is just a graphic but who cares this thing absolutely rocks. Also if you get this one, do not expect the natural color to be as light as the photos of it because it is really much darker. SUMMARY: This guitar would be a great deal at $300.00. I just noticed that some sites are listing this as a clearance item so do not wait and order yours soon. I really expected at best an OK guitar for 100 bucks. I got one of the best sounding axes I have ever had. I have been playing for 16 years now and have owned over 20 guitars and would rate this in my top 3

The other reviewers commented on how light the body is. What they fail to mention, is how soft the wood is. It's actually softer than Basswood, kind of like Cedar. Which fails this guitar for any sort of longevity. Screws strip the wood so easily, that alone rules it out as a contender.
The Neck is C shaped. Not Schecter or Ibanez thin, but it still feels good.
The Pickups are great for that Rock, Grunge/ Garage type sound. Not bass heavy, Very raw sounding with lots of bite.
My other gripes may have been reserved to my guitar alone. It came with the Nut slotted too deeply, lots of high frets, and curved parts of the body seemed whittled by a knife, not a CNC machine.

    They should be more careful for online order

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    The guitar they mailed to me has rusty strings. Even though it is not en expensive guitar and was bought online, the store should treat customer with better services. I have been waiting for it so long, may not waste for effort returning it (and returning it will costs twice of the shipping fees). I probably just change the strings by my own.

        Guitar needed setup something awful. Paint job had runs in it and had several high frets that made for several dead frets and the action had to be set much higher than desired.

          Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

          I've played guitar >30 yrs., and needed an electric for practice & stage. I've owned Dean electrics before, & prefer them; primarily, for the quality of the necks & playing characteristics (low, fast, & expressive). This very inexpensive guitar is a good choice for anyone (any skill level) who's strapped for cash. The only 2 shortcomings of the one I bought (IMHO) are the placement of the output jack, and the fret ends. The output jack is near the wide point of the body, which is too far forward to be completely out of the way when playing sitting down. The fret ends were slightly long, and abraded my index finger while doing bar chords. Also, the top E was getting caught under a fret end at 5th fret. I fixed this by running a sanding block w/ fine sandpaper along the neck edge; took 'em right down flush. I'd expected marring, and wasn't too concerned about it on a guitar this inexpensive - but, surprisingly, it still looks nice. I've taken this out a couple of times to open stage events, and everyone who tries it is amazed at what a great guitar it is for the price.

            Good value, playes great out of the box. Pickups are better than expected at this price. Down side is the color. MF showes pic of nice natural finsh, Guitar came with a ugly opaque brown paint job. If you want this model get it in black. You won't go wrong.
