This guitar is awesome. I am a novice guitar player, learning everything i can about how they work and how to play'em. I have three guitars, all entry level, squier strat, b.c. rich warlock, and my new dean vendetta, and love them all. This one is especially unique to me because of the light weight. I love the 24 frets and the tremelo on it. Everything seems to be in order hardware wise, but ive only had it for a day now. I would not suggest ordering online though, go to your local Guitar Center and check it out. The techs there can look it over if you dont know what to look for. Im going to go get this set-up in the next couple of days so it is in peak condition, but even with my standard tuning it sounds great and feels great. The satin natural finish is nice because it isn't as common of a look making it stand out amongst other axes. Buying an axe is like bbuying a car though, test drive and make sure it is right for you before you buy, im sure you will be impressed.

I have another guitar I keep baritone: I use this to practice scales and chords in standard E. It's perfect for long practice sessions for it's comfortable feel and light weight. Something that will bother many buyers is the fact that the color was NOT as advertised. Mine was so thick with the stain, you can see no wood grain. It's so dark it's almost black. Fortunately, after I got over it, it's kinda better :-)

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This guitar is not built well. The electronics are very loose and shaky, the amp cord input is terribly noisy. It feels great to play but is overall not worth it.

      Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

      Several reviewers have commented that the guitar is NOT the same as pictured. This is correct. The photo shows a nice woodgrain. The guitar I received (and returned) was nothing like the picture. Could not even tell if it was made out of wood (no grain whatsoever). The finish looked like heavy brown blotchy shoe polish. Not sure if Dean is trying to pull a bait and switch or not. I would love to get the guitar as pictured, but someone is trying to deceive the customer. Not my usual great experience with Guitar Center.

        No complaints on this guitar, for the price you dam sure can't beat it. On par with my Gibson as far as the way it sounds and the feel. I'm absolutely impressed with this guitar, I bought it for practice but ended up loving it just as much if not more than my Gibson.

              This is actually a very excellent axe. I had it for about a year and then got a couple of Squire Strats and I gave it to my old friend and he just loves it and won't play his Les Paul, or Startocaster. If you are thinking about this guitar, think no more, you can buy it and love it.

              Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

              This is a double digit pricetag guitar, You aren't buying a Fender Custom Shop instrument here. Great for beginners. Might need a little work to be a good back up instrument. From the previous reviews it sounds like Quality Control is all over the place on these.

              I have been playing for 28 years, and have played plenty of high end guitars (Fender, Gibson, PRS, Jackson, ESP).

              The Good: Looks great, satin finish natural wood grain, a little darker than advertised but not an issue. It also plays pretty nicely, with some caveats which I will get to in a minute. I will say that (in my case) the action and playability is equal to any of my Fenders that get used daily.

              The "Meh": Had about 4 high frets causing some string buzz. Had a tech friend fix the high frets with a little filing/crowning. The nut is cheap plastic and in my case needed to be filed wider (not deeper) because the strings were pinching in the nut. Best to replace the nut with a decent quality one. Also once the strings were off, the neck was a little loose. A couple of turns of the screwdriver resolved.

              The Bad: Tuning machines are cheap, I play a lot of blues, i.e. a lot of bending. This thing goes out of tune in under 5 minutes. Replace the machines with decent ones, possibly even some locking machines, problem resolved.

              Summary: A decent guitar overall with some minor annoyances. All of which can be fixed relatively cheaply. If you're willing to invest in the inexpensive price tag and then spend that amount again on updated nut/tuning machines plus a little one on one time with the instrument you will have a back up stage guitar that rivals most guitars that cost 5 to 6 times the price.

                  I was excited about this guitar. Since I was travelling, I couldn't get to open it until after two weeks. There are marks on the body and the string came of while tuning. I am never buying from this store again.
