The Dean Vendetta Series
With four models to choose from, the Vendettas have string-through-body design, classic Dean V Ferrule pattern, dual Humbuckers, a 25.5-inch scale, and solid mahogany bodies with a maple neck. The Vendetta 1.0 and 2.0 are bolt-on models with black hardware. The 2.0 model features a solid flame maple top. The Vendetta 3.0 and 4.0 sport neck-through construction with the Pearl Evil Eye inlay running the length of the fretboard. The 4.0 version has a beautiful quilted maple top and is available in an all too popular "Tiger Eye" finish.

Paulownia Body
Paulownia is an increasingly popular substitute for mahogany in more affordable guitar models. It's a fast-growing, hearty tree native to Japan and Southeast Asia, and has traditionally been used for Asian string instruments.

As a lightweight, porous body wood, Paulownia is somewhat similar to swamp ash in its sonic signature: very resonant, with plenty of chime and a nice, tight low-end.

Bolt-On Construction
The Vendetta 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 dot inlays.

Dean Humbucker Pickups
To capture the biting tones of vintage Deans, the company includes two humbuckers. These pickups should provide more than enough bite for modern styles, along with plenty of low-end and midrange definition. The standard three-way selector allows bridge, neck, or a combination, and volume and tone controls are provided.

Dean Diecast Tuners
Dean's sealed diecast tuners offer solid tuning and mechanics, for a long lifetime of dependable performance.

Tune-o-Matic Bridge
A Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru body design provides even more sustain, along with precise intonation for your tuning preference. The classic v-shaped ferrule pattern adds some nice vintage Dean style.

Very utilitarian and out of the box sounds great.
Zemat
All in all, the Vendetta is a great guitar for someone who is starting or someone who has learned the ropes to a guitar and wants good sound for cheap.

It's much darker and you don't really see any of the wood grain, as represented in the picture.

I recently got this guitar for Christmas, and i have to say its WAY!! better than the squire fender knockoff i had before it. This guitar is gorgeous,as it is to be expected of Dean, pick-ups work great,just as good if not better than my lead guitarists Les Paul. The feel is also amazing nice thin neck...making it easy to fret. Easy to string and tune....comes strung with D'Addario strings......don't waste your time lookking for a better guitar for a better deal....you won't find one.......even better than most guitars that cost 3 times more.

Got this for my son for Christmas. He wanted a guitar to take to band practice that wouldn't get beat up, etc. Sooo, I read these incredible reviews about this guitar, from seasoned musicians, raving about how light it is (made from Paulownia wood) and how you can practice without an amp due to how loudly it resonates. He played one at Guitar Center and fell in love with THAT guitar. (And he played so many of them.) He loves the action on it, and it has 24 frets! Thank you Santa!!!

If you put this guitar in perspective, this is a good deal.

I've been through the phase of buying $2000 guitars and I still cherish the memory of a couple of Gibson models, but the truth is, I need working guitars, not heirlooms - not investment vehicles. I want something good enough, but not too good. Something that stays out of the way of my playing, and is cheap enough so it can be used as a weapon in a bar fight if it's that kind of night. I want something I can enjoy playing but something I can kiss goodbye without tears, if I have to.

From that perspective, this Dean is perfect. I've always avoided Deans because their standard "bunny-ears" headstock won't fit in a normal gig bag, but this model reduced the head to a marginally acceptable size, and the price is just silly, so I picked one up. I figure it'll last a couple of years, and that's fine - I go through guitars the way some people go through Kleenex. Or relationships.

Some of the workmanship is laughably amateurish, of course - this is, after all, a hundred dollar guitar. I've spent more than this on dinner... come to think about it, I've spent more than this on a cup of COFFEE.

So yes, the finer points of luthiery have escaped the manufacturer, but I DON'T CARE. The things that count are all good - intonation is great, neck is well adjusted, action is great, none of the frets tear the tips off my fingers, the tuning machines are borderline competent (I touch up the tuning every couple of songs anyway).

Best of all it'll probably stop a .22 round and in the places I play this is sometimes a consideration.

I've read reviews from folks moaning about the finish but again, I DON'T CARE - this ain't art - if you want perfect finishes, buy something on the high side.

I bought this guitar for the Rocksmith game. It's a pretty nice guitar, but as other reviewers mentioned is that the finish is not as shown in the picture. It's a dark brown color and I don't see any wood finish on it. Another thing to note, is that when I got the guitar, the top part of the guitar was chipped. It was minor, so I decided to not send it back.

I'm unsure on if the guitar sounds "awesome" because I'm just a beginner, but I feel that it does the job. I'm able to play my Rocksmith game without any issues, it's pretty nice, and with the money I saved from getting this instead of the Rocksmith Guitar Bundle, I was able to purchase the game, this guitar, Guardian Electric Guitar Stand (A-Shape, Black), Protec Guitar Strap, Black, and Planet Waves Black Pearl Celluloid Guitar Picks, 10 pack, Light. Pretty nice.

I own several guitars, two Squier Tele's and a Squier Strat and this Vendetta is the third Dean I've bought, the other two being a Vendetta with the tremelo and an EVO. This guitar came ready to play right out of the box, aside from having to get some dust off of it with a micro fiber polish cloth I have no problems with it, the intonation is set great, the action fantastic, the neck is smooth and fast and the Dean pickups sound great through my amp, which is a Kustom KG212FX 30W 2 x 12 Guitar Combo Amp with Digital Effects, this guitar sounds great on the clean and drive channels and with the amps built in reverb, delay and chorus. It also sounds great with my effect pedals that are a Pyle-Pro PPDLTO Vintage Tube Overdrive Effect Guitar Pedal and a Pyle-Pro PPDLSM Super High-Gain Distortion Effect Guitar Pedal. For the price, this is an excellent guitar. I think this is a great entry level instrument for beginners and is decent for intermediate or even advanced players like myself who are tired of shelling out big bucks for guitars. I highly recommend the Dean Vendetta. (Jeff Wolf)

It came, it weighed next to nothing, I questioned everything, it plugged into my amp with headphones and a tuner, and it was amazing. Great sounds, all stock pickups sound great, tone is great, good with metal and acoustic sounds, perfect to learn, super light (like half of a regular guitar or less) high quality, good equipment for $115. Get at it! :D
