Hey guys if your reading this then your skeptical about how much this bass costs. Some of the reviews are a little sketchy and its tough to make a real decision based on them I hope I can fix that. First off I recently got my Green Dean Custom Zone so not sure on the life time of this thing but as everyone has said there isn't a picture that can do the color justice (get the dr neon strings, and the DiMarzio neon strap to match).I'm running Acoustic B200 Head paired with a B115 cab, (most importantly) a Boss GT-10B workstation. I bought this bass as a backup to my Squire Affinity Series J Bass. Without the GT-10B the Dean is very limited in the tone department it's not terrible but it really cant get as low as you might like (i'm tuned to CGCF). The neck also feels a little cheap and unfinished compared to the J Bass.On the other hand this thing is pretty awesome its super light so you can really flail it around and have fun (get strap locks). The fretboard is super fast and tight more like a guitar than a bass and the neck is rather thin so you can really fly on this baby its so fun. Paired with a good workstation/head/fx loop this thing can have the sound your looking for. I suggest this for a beginner or someone set up to compensate for the lack of options on the guitar.

decent for the money

Honestly this is probably the best way to spend 200 as far as music goes. Otherwise, I would try to save up at least 400 or 500 for something higher quality.

Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

I just started playing the bass, and got this VERY green Dean. It is honestly wonderful for the price, and even makes my not-so-skilled beginner playing sound awesome! The only problem is that the pointed top may break off. When I got mine, it poked right through the box! You also have to be very careful, you might blind someone with the color and then accidentally stab them, after they go deaf from the amazing sound!
Just kidding, it's a good bass, I reccomend it 100%

Great bass for the price!

By Jarrod Vickers

Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

Very simple bass, Bought it on a whim merely because it got good reviews and I needed a cheap bass. This bass looks super fresh in person (only complaint is when it got here, the very tip of the head was slightly chipped). Green really stands out and with the DiMarzio pink clip-in strap I got, it's the ultimate setup. Bass sounds great plugged in, the tone is super throaty for the lows and punchy on the highs. (surprisingly) I slapped the Elixir Heavy (.050-.105 gauge) to tune to drop B (the primary tuning my band plays in) and it sounds beautiful. The strings that came with it sounded great too for the little amount of time I used them (standard tuning). Overall a great value considering what you're getting. It's cheap, you can beat on it, and sticker it up and it'll still look cool...

Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

The instrument is amazing! Its great for slap, picking, muted, or plucking. All players can benefit. Plus, it looks really good and isn't that heavy. Only drawback? People may look more at you than the guitarist.

Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

I'm the bass player in a teacher/student band at the junior high where I teach. I figured it was about time to replace the Rogue bass I bought a few years ago and upgrade a little (can't get too fancy on a teacher's salary). I'm usually a pretty conservative guy, but I like to cut loose when we perform, so this bass really caught my eye.
The first thing that stood out when the bass arrived was how GREEN the green is. The pictures here on the site do not do it justice--it is MUCH brighter than the pictures show.
I plugged in, tuned up, and the bass sounded good right out of the box. One minor beef--little bit of buzz on the E string. Other than that, it's a nice, punchy bass with a butter-smooth neck. Definitely a nice bass for the price!

      Even though I am in a blues band, I like being a little flashy. I love the green color, and added DR neon green strings and a neon green strap. It is surprisingly comfortable to play and has a good sound. The band loves it too.

      Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

      I've been playing guitar for over 40 years, bass for 30. I buy-sell-trade axes all the time. I've owned them all- Fender P's, J's, Kramers, Gibsons, Laklands, etc. I got this (in Nuqlear Green) originally for my son. The heck with him, I'm keeping it! For the 2 Ben's you're going to pay for this, you'll play it and not worry about killing it. So simple. A volume, a tone, a split pickup. I figured once I got this I would have to remove the stock p/u. I was wrong! It's strong. Responsive volume and tone controls. Even the strings on it are great. Seriously, I took it out of the box and gigged with it that night. Even my experienced bass friends thought it sounded exactly like a vintage P bass. Slap it-it jumps at you. Play it with your fingertips and it's responsive. The loud color may be a bit much for my middle-aged image, but it sure looks great on stage. This one's a keeper.

      I am only 14 and 5'4" I play in jazz band at my school, and needed a new bass. I got this one, and I loved it. The fret board is pretty narrow, which makes it very easy to maneuver my hands to get to the note I need to go. I get compliments everywhere I preform on how awesome it sounds (and looks)

      Comments about Dean Custom Zone 4-String Bass Guitar:

      This bass is amazing. I've never really played a dean before, and I expected it to be at a beginner level, but I love it. The pickups sounds forceful with a punch, without being overwhelmed. I wish the fretboard was longer, but still amazing. I've received compliments from everyone who saw me play or played it themselves. Best bass for the price out there.

This is probably the 2nd best sounding bass. Unreal... I get constant compliments on the sound and this was supposed to be a stage prop!! Way to Go DEAN!!!!

        Bought this for the wild color, wasn't expecting it to play and sound so good! I primarily use a P-bass and this one feels close to that as far as neck feel and weight. I will adjust the string height to suit me, a little fret buzz out of the box. Very impressed with this bass.
