Good alround bass - I own it and rate it a buy

By Stephen Pickup

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass:

It is lightweight, well balanced and surprisingly large physically. It's a good-looking instrument that gets noticed and anyone that has seen it seems to like visually.

Like I said, it is large and that can take some getting used to and the full 36 scale neck adds to that, but it's very light weight. The action was decent put of the box, but I am getting it adjusted. Machine heads are decent and were easy to tune and restring.

It is not particular loud acoustically and it doesnt compete well with a decent acoustic guitar, but it is good enough to practice with. I restrung it with flat-wounds, which reduced the volume a bit as well. To use in a group or band, it must be micd or plugged in using its onboard pickup and controls.

Sound-wise its pretty good; soft mellow base, especially with the flat-wounds. Being acoustic you have to careful regarding feedback. It will feedback, and plugged into my Ampeg with setting I used for a Jazz Bass, the hollow body literally vibrated like a speaker cone feeding back. Once we got it settled down it demonstrated a very pleasing tone.

The weak spot in the pickup and control. I found this with another inexpensive Dean bass I own. The pickup is acoustically weak requiring maxed out gain and volume, though not an issue when playing with acoustic instruments. The control provides for a volume and a tone. Both are less that stellar. In fact I think the feedback issue may relate to the pickup and its electrics more that the guitar itself. But again for practice and low volume settings its fine. If I used it live and in high power setting, or just to the bring out this bass potential, I would replace the electrics completely with a Fishman or similar. I think it be would an awesome bass with that upgrade alone.

I rate this a buy, and I do own it.

Great bass

By psbrush

from Athens, Ga

Comments about Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass:

I am a amatuer bass player and this suites all my needs. It is great to plug in but great to play just relaxing without all the electronics. Dean also makes a great case i got for only about 70, which will last the whole time i have the bass.

Terrific value for the money

Comments about Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass:

The Dean EAB bass is a terrific value for the money! It's amazing that one can buy a fine-performing acoustic bass for this little money. I wanted something I could play unplugged. I compared this unit to the Rogue AB304, and there was no comparison. The Rogue has a small body and insignificant acoustic output - I immediately sent it back. The Dean on the other hand has a large body and real bass volume when played unamplified. I compared it to an Olympia acoustic bass, which is a Tacoma acoustic bass copy made with laminate wood, and the Dean has greater volume output. The Dean also has an extra long 24 fret neck, if you're interested in experimenting in those upper registers. The only instruments I've heard that significantly beat this for volume are the Klein/Taylor acoustic bass, but they cost a whole lot more. I rate this an unbeatable buy! The downside is that the Dean only has a non-powered pickup. This means that there are plug-in situations where you may need to use a "Direct Box" in order to get electronic signal, for instance, to plug into a mixer.

Decent acoustic bass for the money.

By Rob Wingo

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass:

Bought to use in bluegrass un-amplified. The size of this bass is impressive, nice electric style bass neck. Soft sound acoustic and plenty of power electrified. I think it does need flat wound strings, the noise is noticeable. Finish is flat and the workmanship is ok for this money. Holds tune well.
