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 :-)

Great Sound, Quality & Features!

By Tyler S

from Portland, OR

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

The Vendetta XMT is really the best deal in this price range. The sound is warm, clean, and crisp. Great never-ending sustain, as others have mentioned. I was really surprised by the craftsmanship/fit & finish. No flaws at all on mine. VERY attractive Paulownia body, super light. It's worth mentioning things like the finished headstock & truss rod cover. Pickups with individually adjustable pole pieces. 24 frets. All things you don't normally find in this price range. Solid electronics, and milled aluminum knobs. This is the only "starter" priced guitar I will put on a stand next to guitars costing much more. I pretty much keep my other inexpensive practice guitars hidden. It's very impressive for the money! Has me wanting to buy another Dean!

A GREAT METAL STARTER AXE

By Dave S

from Apple Valley Ca

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I,ve had this guitar for about a year now, and the only problem I,ve had is having to re-tightening a few screws. It still sounds great, especially when u consider the price, it sound way better than my import Fender Strat, and even better than my freinds Js Dinky by Jackson, both of which are (22 fret) axes. This Dean is a real (24 fret) full size guitar. I don't use the whammy bar that comes with it, so I can't say anything about it. I will say that i wish it had a faster neck now that my skills are improving, but I may never sell this axe; I still love it, and play it almost every day. I hope this review was helpful to u

Beginner guitar

By Ty

from Kutztown, PA

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

This is probably one of the best beginner guitars out there. Great for anyone who wants to play guitar but doesn't know if they'll stick with it or not. The pickups are ok for the price. But this guitar chips very easily, so be careful.

Not Bad, Not Bad at all actually

By Stephan W.

from Germantown, MD

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

Came into my local GC last week to check out this guitar. Was in need of a practice guitar one of my band members could use for private sessions. This one did the trick. I didn't expect much from this guitar but man it puts up a fight. It has little trouble keeping up with my Ibanez RG420. Even my lead guitarist is blown away by the sound this thing makes for a guitar in this price range. The pickups are fairly good and responsive. The guitar has a bolt on neck but features fairly good sustain. The body of the guitar is ultra light weight and thus good for younger kids and people with back issues. The tremolo featured on the guitar is pretty average something you would find on a standard squire strat. The neck on the guitar takes some breaking into because the guitar makes some buzzing noises between the 4th and 15th frets. After playing it for 3 hours the noises went away. My advice is to try the guitar out at GC first before you buy it. do NOT buy guitars online that are in this price range because you will regret it. Overall this guitar is a winner and in a class of it's own. 5 stars

good inexpensive starter

By 1Fed

from Gig Harbor, WA

Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I've been playing for nearly 20 years, and I've always gone with inexpensive guitars and loaded 'em with nice pickups. Axes in this price range can be hit or miss, that being said, I played 3 different guitars (same model) until I found the one with the best fit and finish @ my local G.C. store. I'm surprised by the stock pickups, they're not bad at all. My vendetta's electronics are solid, and this model plays very much like a less expensive Squier strat. The black finish is cool and I'm happy with my purchase. Of course you get what you pay for, but for a decent guitar at a starter price, this one is worth checking out.

    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.

    Dean guitar is cheap

    By Jeff C

    from Greenville TX

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    Yes the Dean Vendetta guitar is inexpensive.I wanted to get a "cheap" guitar to carry around to practice on,so I can leave my more expensive guitars at home.Well I was pleased with the overall look of this guitar.There are a few minor glitches,such as a cracked/dented corner of the fretboard near the pickups & volume knob that doesn't ramp the sound down evenly.But the most aggravating thing is that this guitar doesn't seem to be "strobed",the chime points aren't consistent with the frets.And to me the most frustrating fault of this guitar is that I can't tune the guitar by fret reference.I have to use the tuner built in the amp,but then the notes are not consistent(I know, I may not be making myself understood but then again I'm not a pro!)I am so frustrated by this,that I'm going to return it and use the credit to buy a better,not so cheap guitar.....Perfect practice makes perfect!

    Dean Vendetta

    By Matthew Matuszak

    from Elmwood Park, IL

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    This guitar as great sound, weight, and its good for beginners. There is only 1 problem after awhile the body starts to chip since its made of wood, but don't let this worry you. Over all this guitar is great for starters and is lite weight, the bad part is it chips and scratches easily if you don't take care of it, this is a great guitar and you should get it.

    Best Guitar Available for the Price

    By Michael Lane

    from Mtn. Grove, Missouri

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    I bought this guitar for my birthday last year and I have to say, it has not disappointed me. The only reason I bought this particular guitar is because it seemed to be the nicest thing I could afford with $100 budget. Well I wasn't wrong, or at least I don't think I was, this guitar looks and sounds great and really its only flaw is the tuners, they fall out of tune quite quickly but if u don't mind tuning a lot that's no issue. I play a lot of metal and this guitar works great for that, it has a very comfortable neck as well. All in all I would recommend this guitar for the price, but lets face it, you get what you pay for.

    Play it first

    By Preston

    from Plano, Texas

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    I bought this guitar online a couple of weeks ago. When it came in the mail, the neck pickup didn't work at all. I sent it back and got a new one. The new one has an incorrectly radiused 4th fret (meaning it has a horrific buzz). If you want to buy this guitar, I strongly suggest trying out the specific one you are about to buy in the store first.

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

    Buy this from your local store. Tried 3 before finding a good one. (mass production I guess)Plays good. Sounds great! Nice pickups. Had to tighten everything up a bit when I got it home but not complaining for the price. Tremelo stays in tune very well. GREAT newbie guitar! Better than my old Squire strat.

    I play primarily drums, so when i bought this baby, my band members were shocked. It's an amazing guitar. It's simply beautiful. Looks amazing. Just remember to take care of it. The whammy is amazing, you can't ask more of it. The head also looks really good. Honestly, nothing more you can ask for

        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.

        Kind of not worth $130

        By DimeFan04

        from Providence, RI

        Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        This guitar is extremely light weight. The action starts off pretty high but thats easily lowered. The main problem with this guitar is that theres a tremolo system with an angled headstock. This causes it to never stay in tune. Tremolo systems require either a straight headstock or some kind of locking system or else you can't use it without going out of tune. And you can't just dive bomb and get back in tune like with most Khaler systems. That's mainly it. At least it sounds monsterous. Wayy better than i expected

        definetly worth a buy

        By Eli Jenkins

        from Wheaton MD

        Comments about Dean Vendetta XMT Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        when i bought this guitar i wasnt expecting very much. i was really only expecting a average sound. but when i got it i was pretty surprised. it has amazing tone, and feels great when i play it. its not particularly heavy which makes standing and playing easier for me, plus i love having the whammy bar (although i would prefer a floating tromello but still) i havent tried it with to many amps, but the sound is pretty consistant none the less, even on lower quality amps, and the trans black finish (which is actualy more green than black) looks killer. also the range of music you can make with this guitar is bound to please anyone who picks it up it does come out of tune a little more than desired, and the cord jack does loosen a little frequently, but that is a small price to pay for such an awsome axe. this s a must buy for any musician, the quality cannot be beat by any guitar in this and several other price ranges. you should definitely pick this bad boy up
