  • Generally Satisfied

    As reviewed by Robert on 8/20/2014

    I've had this bass now for a few weeks and have been pretty satisfied with it so far, based on my expectations. This is my second acoustic bass, but my first five-string, so I was looking for a relatively inexpensive 5-string on which to learn and play around with "unplugged". So far, this bass works admirably for that purpose. Out of the box, it is nicely playable, with a decently low action, so I haven't felt the need to tinker with setup yet. I expect that will occur when I eventually change the strings out for ones with a warmer tone. I have done a little testing with this bass plugged into my 200 Watt amp, and while it is certainly quieter than my mainstay electric at the same volume setting, that has also been my experience with my 4-string acoustic. Right now, I've got plenty of wattage for most purposes, so turning it up is my answer, but I don't know yet how well it will work with my 25 Watt practice amp that I carry around when practicing at other locations. That could possibly push me into putting in a new pickup, but at the roughly $200 or so purchase price of the bass, it still seems to me like a pretty good value and I don't think that I'll mind adding some custom improvements like that over time. I didn't detect any of the static problems that I've seen mentioned in other reviews, but I haven't played it extensively plugged-in yet, either.

  • Take the word "electric" from the description

    As reviewed by Peter Kamenakis on 5/18/2012

    I ordered the bass from the store, and it arrived exactly when the rep told me it would. I played it unplugged at first and I was impressed. My band does both electric and acoustic gigs, but the acoustic gigs still run through a PA so I need that acoustic sound but plugged in. Anyway, the sound was rich, and full. The action on the neck was great, and even the B string was not muddy. Everything was clear, and I was impressed. Then I plugged it in. OMG. Snap, crackle, and pop - just like Rice Krispies. The sound was so annoying I couldn't take minute of that noise. The Dean guitar company could sell many of these basses if they remove the word "electric" and rip out the electronics on this bass and sell it as a straight acoustic bass. Acoustic - good. Electric - HORRIBLE!

  • Absolutely Love This Thing.

    As reviewed by Paul C on 8/16/2011

    This thing has an amazing sound. I usually use a Ibanez GSR205 but I love the way acoustic basses sound. Whenever I'm going somewhere, I bring this because it is loud enough to not have to have an amp.
