      The bass is neither lacking, nor high on my list of basses with baubles... like a P bass, it has a basic tone, volume and input. it has a neck, a bridge, and it has 4 strings... not that much to complain about, the only major complaints that i have are that it doesnt fit onto any stand that i own..(its huge)... and this doesnt really matter, because it stands on its own.. and it doesnt pick up the D, and G strings all that well... i have to try a different string gauge, but with the ones that Dean reccomend, it has very little upper end. the bass is Extremely light. its lighter than my actual guitar is... great when you're playing for a long time.. and add onto all of that, the fact that its a V.... well, it can only be beat by the MLV2A and the Razorback V...

      Yeah it sounds good really it does it is a great sounding bass! however it is impossible to play. this is the most uncomfortable bass i have ever played with. yeah it felt neat in the store. yeah it sounds great through any amp actually really good for what is costs. but trying to play a set with it is horrible. the neck is like a ball bat! I ended up putting the great hum bucker in my Fender Precision! now that is a rocking instrument!

      Awesome bass at a good price!

      By Judas

      from Northern CA

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      Sweet metal tone without a sharp pain in your wallet! All I can say is, if you're looking for a good bass at a good price, you can't go wrong with this one.
      It finnaly arrived! I swapped out the stock strings with strings of my choice, then tuned it up. This thing has *killer* tone and looks for a price that's easy on your wallet! Action is a bit high for my taste, but that's easily fixed. If you want a wonderful sounding bass without breaking the bank, then this is for you!
      *WAY* higher quality than I was expecting. Thick, heavy body and the soapbar pickup performs *beautifully*.
      You *definantly* get a lot for your money on this one!

      No frills, solid rock bass

      By Storm-J1Z_X

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      I've already dropped a grand on a "real" bass for technical playing, so now I'm having fun with cheaper, exotic-shaped basses for easy banging in my rock 'n roll band. This bass is fine for playing live. It's got decent tone and a nice feel (it's especially easy to get to the higher frets). In terms of value I'd compare it to my Epiphone Thunderbird IV--not pro level by any stretch, but easy on the wallet and ready for fun. On the negative side, I'm going to have to get this bass set up because the action is way-high and the intonation goes out by the 9th fret.

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      All I really want to say is that the balance of this bass is the worst ive ever seen. You put it on with a regular strap and the ridiculous Dean headstock tilts to the floor. Everyone says "oh its great because its light", but for the money you'd be better off with an epiphone.

      a good starter

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      This was my second bass. I first had the Ibanez jumpstart pack, and I got this one for Christmas. This bass is incredible for the price. It is really lightweight and it looks perfect for the metal bassist. You can really stand out with this bass. This is important to me, since I do bass and vocals. The only thing that drives this down are the manufacturer strings. They SUCK. The standard strings make the sound muddy and dull, and there is a problem with buzzing. If you are going to buy this bass, get some D'Addario medium roundwounds.

      Pure, Tough, Awsomeness

      By B3 bassist

      from Las Vegas, NM

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      This bass is awsome. Not only does it sound perfect but it is also very tough. After throwing it in the back of a truck driven down a bumpy road there's not thing out of place and not a scratch on it. Its also very versitile despite it's shape. I've played funk, soft rock, and even country on this bass and it sounds good for all of em. I highly recommend this bass to any bass player out there who needs a new bass.

      Awsome Bass Power!!!

      By Diamond Dallas Bass

      from Dresden, Ohio

      Comments about Dean V Metalman 4-String Bass:

      I bought my Dean V Metalman Bass about 8 months ago and was truly amazed by the quality, style and performance of this bass. It looks huge but the weight is perfect, just get a 4" strap and let it hang waist level and you can play hours on end. It has an awsome deep metal sound coming from the single humbucker pickup and it barely comes out of tune. You'll be the center of attention when you gig with this bass. Bottom line, for the price, you can't beat this bass, it sounds awsome and looks good, So get your Dean V Metalman Today...
