Can Be A Great Little Guitar With a Little Money and Elbow Grease...

By MudKatz58

from Van Buren, AR

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

After fixing everything that was wrong with the guitar, I had a really nice playing, great sounding guitar that stays in tune. Another example of the poor workmanship was that the holes that were drilled for the string ferrules (it is a string thru body) were drilled too big for the ferrules, so that they sit below the level of the back of the guitar. I had to clean a lot of wax or rubbing compound out of the holes. Not so on my "End Game". Truthfully, even thought the "End Game" guitar cost just a little more than the "United Abomination", it looks and plays like a guitar costing in the higher price range. I'm still a Dean fan and a Dave Mustaine Fan. I've got the rest of his signature guitars in my wishlist for later purchases.
The Dean Dave Mustaine "United Abominations" VMNT X comes loaded with most of the features on the more expensive Dean Dave Mustaine models. The problem is that it's not put together very well
There wasn't one screw that was tightened the way it should have been, from the Grover keys on the headstock, to the neckplate, to the strapbuttons, and the volume and tone pots. All of the screws on the Grover Keys had to be tightened, as did the neck plate screws and strap buttons. The volume and tone pots just spun around...they weren't tight at all. I tightened them and then noticed that the nut holding the pickup selector switch in place was put in sideways and the nut was also broken in one place, so I had to tighten and replace that nut. The screws on the jackplate were also loose. After I tightened everything, I decided to replace the strap buttons with Dunlop Straploks. Replacing the button on the upper wing was a breeze. However, they incorporated a strap button as one of the neck plate screws. I had to use wood dowels and a bit of wood glue to get the straplok button to fit properly. That was something that should have been thought out a little more. I also own the Dean Dave Mustaine "End Game" VMNT and it was perfect right out of the box. Practically in tune and every screw tightened the way they should have been.
Good value for the money...IF you don't mind putting some work into the guitar to make it playable.

Finally...

By Leslie Jonas

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

After playing this for awhile at a guitar shop, the VMNTX series seems like an excellent choice for those who want an awesome looking, sounding, and playing guitar on a budget. I will probably be getting the regular one in grey, although it seems that the jack is in a different place on that model. Very well done, I applaud Dean for this effort.
This guitar has a fabulous set of features that make it worthwhile for almost any style of play. Namely, I am referring to the dual volume knobs. This makes it easy to switch from riffing or clean work to solos without using any sort of pedal, or create a killswitch effect. The pickups are nicely matched and sound similar while still maintaining a nice amount of variation. The neck, as with most Deans, plays very comfortably and fast. Add to this the V shape and top-horn output jack and this makes a fine sounding, playing, and looking guitar.
At this price, you can't get better quality than a Dean, and this is no exception.

BUY THIS GUITAR

By Dean Fan

from USA

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

You won't be dissappointed. Make sure you get this guitar setup before leaving the store and it will amaze you. Very fast fretting, super fast action on the neck, neck handles very accurately and very crisp in your hand. The palm muting ROCKS on this guitar, I am able to play Master of Puppets with all downstrokes faster than I could on any other guitar. I was very shocked for the value of what I paid! The stock strings are sub par. I personally like the PUP's because I have a digital VOX so it colors the sound well for me. Having trouble getting great bends, seems a bit stiff, but suspect it's the strings. I also will be taking it to a guitar guru for advanced setup simply because it plays so well now. My only problem with it is that it plays SO FAST I have trouble keeping my motions tight enough to play accurately. Great axe by Dean and you can feel Mustaine's influence on its unique setup.

Unbelievably sweet!

By Goerger

from Foley, MN

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

i got mine for $40 less used and its the best deal I have ever got. the dent at the very very top is unnoticable and would have happened anyway on the sharp corners of this Awesome Dean VMNTx Axe. The livewire cords work fine. The Crybaby Wah works great.I bought a 260 dollar guitar because I might want to sell it before I leave Iraq. But now I aint gonna sell. I'm gonna buy a hardcase. The axe was adjusted perfectly and came all the way to Iraq darn near in-tune. by the way it takes 2 weeks to deliver to Iraq. This guitar's graphics are way better in real life than the picture. Grover Tuners work smooth. neck is Great. Comfortable and easy to reach the highest notes.Musicians friend, You are an Awesome Team.

A-BOMBination!

By Yogi's little booboo.

from New City, U.S.A

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

Fit and finish is prolificly smooth. Sound is utterly tranquil to downright scarry(BIPOLAR-like). Heck of a guitar. It is very sick and probably will never recover from its malaise unless you destroy it using sledge hammers..Very sick indeed.

A VERY nice guitar!

By Southern Yankee

from Pembroke, GA

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

This guitar is without a doubt a very, VERY wicked guitar. It has a KILLER paint job, its comfortable to hold, and it sounds amazing. After a while, you may want to invest in new pickups, but even stock, this guitar is simply put, AWESOME. Its a must have for heavy rockers and V-guitar lovers.

Don't buy this guitar . . . .

By Circio

Ask me a question

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

Don't but this guitar because then mine won't be so rare. It's a great guitar. For the money - a killer deal. The fingerboard was nicely polished along with the frets. Staight neck with no fretting out anywhere! (Including the highest frets an all strings). This is with the action set fast. The PUPs are not super hot, but quite hot enough and produce good tones. If you swap out the PUPs, keep the originals. My guitar came wired ass-backwards with volume controls opposite and in/out connections at the pots reversed. Easy fix with a a couple of resolder points. Other than that, the guitar has a sharp graphic, balanced weight (I don't think I even need Strap-Locks) by using good quality strap. As always, change the stock strings with your prefered brand. I use D'Addarios .10s which made the guitar play, sound, and intonate better. I own over 30 guitars, most with graphics and this is a keeper. Now, If I can only figure out some Megadeth songs!
