For the money you can not go wrong! Great bass if you are learning or have small hands and fingers. With two volume and one tone control you can adjust to fit your sound. Get rid of the stock strings that come with it, and buy some good ones and it comes to life. If mine was stolen I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Verified Purchase
This bass is very good quality for the price [Dean is known for quality]. Ihave been playing bass for over 40 yrs. and this is a lot lighter than my other bass [Honda 4 string]. I would recommend this bass to anyone.

The bass came on schedule but it needed to be set up - lowered each string and moved bridge segments back to get intonation right.

I bought one of these because I was looking for a short scale neck with two full octaves. The bass came with a sticker which said "Made in China. Adjusted by Dean in USA." If that was true, Dean needs to hire some new guitar techs. The bass arrived in no condition to be played. It took me two full hours to set it up properly, and I know how. Here is what I had to do:

File and dress the edges of all the frets. When the bass arrived they were sharp enough to cut skin.
Change strings--the original ones were pretty bad
Tighten the nuts on all four tuning pegs.
Lower the action.
Tighten the jack.
Adjust the intonation of all four strings.

This was a bit of work, but the bass cost only $200, and when properly set up it is a good instrument.

The good:
The neck is straight and true, allowing a good low action. Once properly adjusted, the intonation is quite good all over the neck--even in the very high end. The pickups are better than I would have expected in a bass at this price. The hardware is decent.

The bad:
In addition to arriving not at all ready to play, the instrument is neck-heavy. The Les Paul shape may work well for the Dean guitars, but the neck on this bass wants to dive.

All in all, I am satisfied. The bass sounds good. A variety of tones is possible. The neck is true and in tune. And it is a nice looking ax.

Verdict: If you know how to work on guitars, and are willing to buy new strings (I used Rotosound Jazz Bass Flatwounds) this can be a winner. Otherwise, plan to spend $100 or so to have it set up by a guitar tech.
