The Dean EVO Series: Evolved from Vintage Origins
The EVO is a perfect blend of vintage design, old world craftsmanship and decades of guitar building technology. The Dean EVO is truly the "Evolution of Guitar Design" at its finest. With a deep dished, carved, ultra-thick solid wood top, the EVO achieves incredible sustain and astonishing tones. The EVO also features a neck joined at the body with Dean's exclusive angular neck joint, which was specially designed to attain the optimum in playability and ultimate resonance.

Basswood Body
Basswood is commonly used for solid body electric guitars and basses because of its strong and durable character, desirable tonal characteristics, and how well it takes paint finishes. Basswood has a warm sound, with a strong, cutting mid-range and is an excellent tonal material for both beginner and advanced players.

Bolt-On Construction
The EVO XM uses bolt-on construction, an affordable alternative to set-neck or thru-body designs. The advantage of this design is that if you do have any neck trouble down the line, you can easily replace it.

The maple neck features an ultra-playable 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, with classic pearl dot inlays.

I bought this Evo because I wanted a cheap non tremelo guitar around to play with alternative tunings, and I really like the looks of it. My other guitars are a Fender Strat and a Fender Lead 1, both equipped with Floyd Rose systems so the Evo was a nice change of pace.

On to the guitar! The first thing I noticed was the weight. At 5.75 lbs. it's probably the lightest guitar I've ever played. Right out of the box it wasn't set up, which didn't really surprise me for a $100 guitar. After setting up the guitar (adjusting the bridge and truss rod) it turned out to be a very nice player. The stock pickups sound great and the solid mahogany body has decent sustain. The good tone surprised me considering how light it is. I have only one complaint. The cheap tuning keys. They're cheap and it's obvious when you turn them and feel varying amounts of play from each of them. That being said, they seem to stay in tune pretty well. The bottom line is that the Evo is an EXCELLENT value! The only thing keeping it from getting 5 stars are the tuning keys. I would highly recommend this guitar to beginners as a first electric or experienced guitarists who want something cheap to play around on. The guitar should be set up properly for best results. If you don't know how to do it, take it to your local guitar shop and pay to have it done.

Enjoy!

I own an EVO.. as a matter of fact I spent the whole evening playing it in front of the TV. I annoy my wife to no end when I do this.
I had the same problems that I've seen in most other reviews on the web. The tuning pegs are really cheap. The guitar will not stay in tune when you get it. After playing it for a while and putting some good strings on it, it's keeping it tune much better (though I've got a good set on back order)
The neck was as straight as an arrow right out of the box. I'd mess it up if I touched the truss rod.
The fret wires were a little rough (tops not polished) but I fixed that by playing the cheap strings for a while. The fret wire edges were cut sharp and not filed too. This was the only real work I put in. I taped off the fret board and filed the edges down with a small diamond file. The neck plays like a dream now. Action is VERY light and low and it's a nice thin maple neck profile. Very fast though it could be a tad bigger for my medium hands (still a joy to play though).
The finish on every part of the guitar is very nice. It's very pretty and I'm happy to have it hanging on a wall mount. No defects.
The body is small in general but not out of proportion and for a 5'11" inch guy like me it's a little small when playing on my knee. It's nice to play standing, very light and comefortable, but I find it just a tad awkward when playing it sitting or reclining on the couch. Nothing beats my Strat for lounging comefort. It does have a good balance.. it's not neck heavy or tail heavy so it just hangs however you want it to from a strap.
Electronics are OK. It's not noisy but the pickups were a bit weak. The bridge pickup was a bit muddy until I raised the pickup (easy for even a novice) and then it cleaned up a lot.

On the plus side, this guitar is inexpensive. On the minus side, the pickups are very noisy, the tuners are loose and don't hold tuning, and the body construction is such that if you put any weight on the body while holding the neck, the tuning goes sharp.

If you're short/small and always play sitting down, this might be an OK value. For anyone else, avoid it.

Verified Purchase
First off, I bought this when it was selling for a pretty incredible price of $70. To be honest with you, I didn't know what to expect but the fact that it was a Dean guitar for this price was enough of a curiosity that was too tempting to pass on.
A bit of a background first off, I have been playing music for over 30 years even though primarily as a bassist, I have also played guitar and have owned quite a few instruments that are of professional quality (read overly expensive investments lol).
I'll break down my review in a few categories here:-

Packaging/Delivery
Was delivered in a week's time and was adequately packed. Outer box was huge but served to keep the inner guitar box padded for the trip to my home. No issues whatsoever. Kudos and thanks to whoever packed it.

Appearance
Guitar definitely doesn't look like a "cheap" guitar- I'm not usually one for a natural finish on my guitars but this one wasn't too bad at all. It's not a superb masterpiece- it doesn't possess the beautiful woodgrain and laquered look of some of the guitars I've seen but it's important to remember that you also aren't paying an arm and a leg for this instrument.

Playability
Now this is where the Evo really becomes a bargain. The tuners are of a lower quality but can be changed at a later time if you want- it has not slipped on me but I can how this can be an area of concern in the future after a few years. It's an easy remedy so I'm not too worried.
Sound is awesome for what can be considered a beginner guitar - Im not really into the multitude of Strat models that usually populate this price range, give me a guitar with humbucker pickups anyday as I prefer the "fuller" sound they provide.
