Mahogany Body With Spruce Top
The Mahogany/Spruce combo is a pretty common choice in acoustic tonewoods, whether for basses or guitars. Mahogany boasts a wide dynamic range, perfect for ampifying your nuance and still sounding good when you lay into it.
The spruce accentuates the bass and treble end of things. It also just looks great, with the deep brown mahogany contrasting the satin-finish spruce.
34-Inch Mahogany Neck
The EAB C5 features a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, and classic pearl dot inlays. It boasts a rosewood bridge to match, with a contemporary "sliver" shape that's all Dean.
Celluloid Binding and Rosette
Speaking of looks, the EAB C5 has plenty, enhanced by the celluloid rosette and body binding.
Dean diecast tuners complete the hardware ensemble, ensuring you stay in tune even when you're plugged in and rocking out.
Dean Passive Preamp
The EAB C5 sounds great on its own, but sometimes you want to turn things up a bit (or plug into an audio interface for recording, perhaps).
The onboard Dean preamp offers basic volume and tone controls to dial in just the sound you need.
