This bass is decent but is not as advertised. It is sold as a mahogany "neck thru" bass when in fact it is made from Basswood with a "bolt on" maple neck. After I bought the bass under a false description and 10 days of arguing with the guys at Dean they finally changed the item description at their website but Dean has not cared enough about their distributors or customers to see that the description is changed at the distribution websites as well. They also did not care that I was stuck with a bass I really did not want. I expected a one piece bass that was mahogany like I purchased not a bolt on basswood bass. I do not appreciate deceptive trade practices so I would say buy another brand of Bass.
Being a Fender man for years(including MusicMans and G&Ls),I wasn't sure how I would like this bass. Being a gigging musician,I needed to make a purchase for a tax deduction. I wanted a lighter bass and tried the fender aerodyne first. It wasn't a huge departure from what I already had. I started trying everything in the music store and picked up a dean metalman V. The neck was fast and the sound was really good but it was hard to play sitting down. After a little research I found the demonator online. More wood and pickup shifted further from bridge. When I got it I said "Wow this thing is light." The setup was great with low action. Easiest to play bass I own. I love the simplicity of the single humbucker. While not as hot as my MIM P-bass pickup it still sounds great with a nice more even growl, but probably not as deep. I think this is due to less weight of the bass. With a strap on its slightly neck heavy but easy to counter by letting the tail wing rest against your fore arm. You get more tone variation picking close to the neck than you do with the fender. By walking your fingers from neck to bridge its easy to emulate a slow flange sound like on "Rocky Mountain Way". For a cheap little chinese bass it's pretty amazing. Tone control doesn't do much. Slight routing flaw next to pickup. Only upgrades I would consider are bridge, tone circuit and professional setup. I think my band likes it more than I do....bunch of freakin metal heads. I like how light, versatile and easy to play it is, but still like the tone, neck position and cut of my Fender better.
I've had this bass for a few weeks now, and have to admit , I'm impressed. It's super light , the action is super low, and the sound is so deep yet it doesn't distort,even at high volumes.However, I am upset with the customer service dept. I emailed them prior to my purchase asking about the description of this item. It lists that the demonator has neck thru design and 2 humbuckers.They said the description is correct and the photo is wrong.Well when it arrived it has only one pickup and a bolt on neck.So much for truth in advertising.
