Comments about Dean Evo 1000 Electric Guitar:
I got 2 of these when they went on super cheap sale - a matte black and a brazilia. The fact that they were solid wood, not laminate or plywood, and theyre set-necks made me jump on it. When i got it them, i got mixed impressions.At first inspection the matte black was just that - flat black color, nothing flashy, easy to clean, no smudgy fingers ruining it easily. But at the very first touch i felt the sharp frets sticking out to cut my fingers. I had to file them down to make it playable. No bad fret buzz, and the neck was straight. The humbuckers sounded dark, the tone hot and generic.The Brazilia is something else to behold. The finish was amazing, almost like clear glass on the flat top and back. The one i got was flawless, i couldnt see any dings or scratches on it. Breathtaking! so much so that i hate having to play it fearing a small rash can develop from anything sharp. The frets are still sharp, but got filed down also. Humbuckers sound generic too.Playability was great though - the neck shape was comfy to my large hands, and the weight isnt too heavy.The thing that made me shake my head are the hardware used on them. They look...cheap. Its like the rejects from the parts bin haphazardly polished and thrown on it, with a lot of pockmarks all over the chrome. The tuners were stiff, and were too small for the somewhat thick headstock. The bushings that screw in to the tuner bottoms hardly catch, and feel like theyve been threaded already. Its not, just too small for the thick headstock.Granted at the price i got them, i would still make out well once i upgrade the parts. The reason i got them was the set neck, plus it used an alder body (a traditional tone wood) instead of basswood, or worse plywood. But at their retail price (not MSRP), its an overpriced horribly equipped guitar. I feel sorry for the people who got these before it got marked down.
