Best Uses

    Comments about Dean John Entwistle Hybrid 5-String Bass:

    I always thought a bass had to be neck-through to get sustain like this, but it even holds low notes for days using only 3 tiny bolts on the neckplate. The fourth bolt is missing to give easier access to high frets and is moderately successful in doing so compared to a T-bird.
    There is a volume control for each pickup and a master 3-band ACTIVE EQ. The pickups sound great even set flat, but I put all of them all the way up to try to come close to the output of my '64 T-bird (that I retired from the road). I wish the Dean had passive capability since I hate relying on a battery, but it doesn't.
    The full contact bridge can be strung through the bass or top-loaded with enough room for different gauge and string types. Mine came perfectly set up from Indonesia; absolutely no buzz with incredibly low action and packed very well. That was not the case with a Jaguar V that came from the same country, but the Jag V was half the price.
    The satin finish neck feels like an Epi T-bird Pro V but these EMG pickups were made for a 5-string unlike the Epi that borrowed pickups from a four string bass. My "hybrid" bass will take over my beloved Reunion Blues Continental RB gig bag from my Epi P-5 since it fits in it better and should be more fun at a gig. Definitely a conversation piece with Who fans; too bad I can't stand their singer's voice, their music was definitely amazing.
    I'm used to neck-heavy basses since I usually play 'birds. I will miss my '64 at gigs, but I won't worry about the headstock snapping off or not being able to replace the Dean if it is stolen. I doubt something this ugly will be and I mean that as a compliment. The low B string has become a requirement at gigs. I can't wait to feel this bass rattle the stage.
    I'll probably install a passive Mike Lull Tbass 5 pickup in this and love it for the money. I don't see why all the other fenderbirds out there are so expensive.
