This mandolin plugs in so you can be heard!

The Dean Tennessee AE is an "A" style mandolin with modern electronics. The Tennessee is constructed out of traditional materials such as a select spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck, and a 20 fret rosewood fingerboard. Grover tuners make a cinch to get in tune and stay there. A Dean single coil pickup has controls for volume and tone so you can plug-in the mandolin and be heard in any setting.

Case sold separately.

Forget the"E" part

By Fred Grindley

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Tennessee AE"A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

I purchased this mandolin to "save" money by not putting a pickup in my acoustic mandolin. Humongous mistake, as one of the other reviewers stated, this is a pretty good quality mandolin, much better than I expected, however, the pickup on mine was also broken from day one. I discovered a grounded short in the mini jack inside. I had that fixed which was fine for 3 gigs. Now the pickup itself is intermittent. Works only when you give it a good smack. Dean has never replied to any of my emails in spite having "registered" the instrument on day one. DO NOT BOTHER. This instrument is a total crapshoot and if you get a lemon, well good luck.

Poor Quality.

By Aaron Cohen

from California

Comments about Dean Tennessee AE"A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

Dean make sure the products you sell actually work.
I just received the mandolin a few days ago, and was disappointed to find that the pickup was completely broken. I had just gotten it set up and was excited to try it for the first time and then found that the music store told me that the pick up was completely faulty.
It looked like a nicely made mandolin.
Has no value when it doesn't work.

Impressive sound for the price!

Comments about Dean Tennessee AE"A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

I needed an acoustic-electric mandolin for gigs, and did not want to spend big bucks. I have Kentucky, Fender, and Epiphone acoustic mandos.Yesterday the Dean AE mando arrived. I set it up,adjusted the action, tuned it, plugged it in to a Roland acoustic amp, and was very pleased with the sound -- even with the tarnished strings that it came with. Acoustically, it actually has a deeper, richer sound with more sustain than my other 3 mandos. For the price, it is an excellent value. It's worth twice the price to me.

Dean Tennessee AE

By Bluegrass boy-Kp1eO

from North Central, KY

Comments about Dean Tennessee AE"A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

I received a Dean Tennessee AE "A" Mandolin as a birthday present from my wife in 2000. For nine years now it has been a good and consistent "friend". Beautiful finish, excellent tone and good playability. For a beginner or intermediate player, this model is hard to beat. Recently after the 9 years, the nut broke at the top bass string. Have to get this repaired as I miss my "friend".

Great intermediate mandolin

By Bcoolbnd

from Georgia

Comments about Dean Tennessee AE"A" Style Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

I have loved this mandolin. I bought it as a beginner mando and it has been great for everything I've needed to do. The A/E feature has been great for any type of gig. The only problem that I've had with it is that the tuners have gotten some sort of build up on them that I've been able to scrub off. Other than that, it has been a very good instrument.
