Im a veteran player of 35 years. The rotten feedback these guitars have gotten from some crack me up. I mean honestly really those cats forgot that you get what you pay for. If you want a killer ax made for pro playing then get a Gibson or Fender, Ibanez, etc. But for the money these guitar are just fine for practice and beginner to intermediates. If you gut them out set them up correctly, and put in hot rod electrics they take on new character. I know this to be true, cause ive been doin it fo years. Of course if I dont want to mess with anything, or just want pro sound, without the extra time/work to set up a new ax, ive got my Strat, Marshalls, Les Paul, Ibanex, etc.. The point is these guitars can rock, IF, you know what to do with them! I bought mine cause...I just wanted it!

I have owned this guitar for a few years now, while mine is slightly different than the one shown (smaller headstock, 1 volume and 1 tone) it is pretty much the same.First of all, if you have big hands or are a big person, this guitar might not be the best for you, unless you want to look like a giant. The neck is narrower than any of my other guitars, so making some chords was harder. Second, the knobs and the jack like to come loose all the time, so tighten them up before playing. Also developed an annoying buzz somewhere in the electronics. Jack is in a horrible place. Mine also came without the top strap button so I had to put one on the neck joint screw.Action is pretty good. Tuning keys are picky, not the best. Those little black string thru things will fall out if you arent careful. The saddle ate up my strings until I fixed it. Nice color (metallic copper).Overall, not a bad guitar, not a great guitar. Better for beginners and smaller players.

Great for shred

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

This guitar is not great for chords. At least mine isn't. I find it great for shreding with single notes and a minimal of bending. Very light weight basswood body is nice. I have tried it with all sorts of amps and equipment and it always sounds the same. It is nice for a cheaper practice instrument.

good, but no so good

By Joe08

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar about a year and a half now. its a great guitar for begginners, have a nice black finish, but no so nice action. When i buy it the action was very high, i lower the bridge to get a little lower action and the guitar began to frettbuzzing, plus the jack is very lousy, anyway its a guitar for starters with a nice price.

Below Average

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

I've had the Dean Baby-V for close to 3 years, and it hasn't stayed in tune for 2 of them. Also the jack is on the inside of the V, which is terrible, because you can't have it on your knee, plus the jack comes loose all the time. It's also not even close to what I call good tone. My main guitar is the ESP M-400, but I still use the V in drop D while I wait to get a third guitar to replace it, so I'm not being dismissive because I don't play it, because I DO play it. I should have gone with a different first guitar, and so should you. I remain disappointed in the Baby-V.

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

This was the guitar I started out with; I have to say that this is one of the greatest guitars I have ever, or ever will play: great tones and great action. Dean guitars are by far the best out there today, no guitar can come close to a Dean, they are...I can't really say how great they really are, that's how great these guitars are.

Awesome Litte Guitar

By YBB

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

It's not really that little. My 10yr old daughter uses it and it's big enough for me. Full size neck and a real comfortable smaller body. The sound is excellent and the finish is very nice in black.

Great Guitar

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

I got this thing in purple a few months ago. I've been playing things like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Old Metallica on it and it works great. My only complant is that the input jack is on the inside of the V which makes it akward to play sitting down.

Great for starters & intermediate

By Hummerhater

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

I own a similar model in orange with only one volume control. Great tone, great playability, GET IT!! My only complaint is that the output jack is on the side, which in order to comfortably play sitting down, your cable has to have right angle ends. I use Ernie Ball strings, gauge 13-56, and the neck can take it. Had it for two years, no problems yet.

Comments about Dean Baby V Electric Guitar:

It feels real nice to play. The plug in port for the cord being in the crevice of the v is kinda weird, but not that bothersome really. I really like the purple color too. It sounds very good. Great for the value.
