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

First thing out of the box I noticed that the finish wasn't at all like the stock photos online. It isn't transparent at all, more of a flat black finish (on the trans. black version, of course). It was set up great from the factory, and after tuning it up, it felt great with low action and no fret buzz. It is my son's first guitar and we were both pretty happy with it until we plugged it into an amp. A lot of noise, and is overbearing at times. I went through and cleaned up the poor soldering inside the cavity and fixed a damaged wire, but it didn't help the noise situation. I tested the amp with my Dean Custom 350 and it was quiet, so there is something up with the electronics in this guitar. All in all, not too bad for the money. Good for practice without amplification.

    JUST WHAT HE WANTED

    By Jennifer Pryor

    from Houlton, Maine

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    My son ordered the Vendetta after the guitar he was currently playing just wore out. He's 15 and he knew what he wanted. He LOVES it. He hasn't put it down. I was afraid of what he might get, considering the amount of money he paid. Usually you get what you pay for...Inexpensive, great sounding, and good looking!!

    Don't judge by the picture

    By Kaleb Burtch

    from Aurora, Colorado

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is really pretty great actually for the price. It's very lightweight, easy to use, and it doesn't go out of tune very easily. However, I ordered the natural finish and when I got it I was disappointed to see that the color looks nothing like it does in the picture. It's darker and almost looks copperish but other than that it's great. For my personal one I put some inlay stickers on it and switched pickups to make the 100 dollar guitar look and sound way better.

    Great for beginners!

    By Jacob Motter

    from Utah

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar as my first guitar. It's great for a beginner; it's light-weight, good sound, cheap, and more! If you get this guitar be careful, although it's light it comes with a cost of being dented and damaged easily. I've been playing guitar for a few years and I still use it for live staging. After you've played guitar for a few years I would recommend getting a guitar worth at least a few hundred more and you'll be happy or you can use this as a practice guitar, still great!

    great guitar

    By jamie dvorak

    from morocco IN

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    I was very nervous about this buying this guitar. After reading a ton of reviews, on here and on other sites, I was concerned that when it arrived the body would be scratched & nicked, the knobs and output jack would be hanging off of it, and also feared it would never stay in tune. I found none of the issues described in other reviews. The overall shape and style of the vendetta xm was a major turn on for me. I went for the natural thinking it would have more of natural brown look to it. It was a bit darker and reder than I expected. As always the strings that came on it aren't great I was able to get it in tune and it stayed in tune while I played. I put it down for the night and when I picked it up the next morning it only needed a slight tune. I have used it on the playstation3 rocksmith game. it checks tuning before every song and it was always in tune, even with the stock strings. I found this guitar to be an excellent pick for me. It has a sexy look and feel, it plays great.

    Great for Price

    By Desmond Saubel

    from Beaumont Califonia

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    I had the lowest expectations on this guitar until I picked it up and played it, I was blown away knowing how cheap it was and how the sound and feel come out to be, its a excellent beginners metal guitar. my main issue was the neck was sanded down pretty weirdly and it took a little while getting used to.
