    Dean Evo XM (Natural Mahogany) Owned for 1 month
    Very first impression of this guitar was "this color is different from what is shown online". I ordered the Natural Mahogany and was expecting to see the natural wood grain on the body of the guitar but what you get is the solid color of mahogany, almost a burgundy color. I am not saying I am disappointed with the color but it is not what I was expecting. The black knobs and pickups look really nice with this color. Out of the box, I tuned the strings hooked it up to an amp and it sounded great. The tuners are not the best and will be something I will look to upgrade sometime in the future, but for now I just check the tuning before I play. Some of the strings stay in tune pretty good but one or two need to be tuned frequently. The guitar needed no truss rod adjustment or bridge adjustments. The action on this guitar seems great and I am impressed with the pickups. So far I have had no problems with any of the hardware which was something I had read in other reviews. This is my first electric guitar and I have only been playing acoustic just over a year so my skills are limited but I had a friend who has many years experience try this guitar out and he was very impressed. All in all I think this was a great purchase and I expect to get many years of use out of this instrument.

    This guitar is a great plays to start out, have as an extra or for a recreational player.
    Solid construction, nice feel, great tone. We're not talking about the finest hand craftsmanhip, but we also not talking about a mess. It is well built, and is an excellent guitar for a beginner or for someone like me who likes to have a guitar around but isn't going to be making a living with it. That being said, I also wouldn't have any problems seeing this as a guitar that gets used extensively for gigging.
    This is my second Dean item and they have both been fantastic. My first Dean cost significantly more than this, but plays and sounds just as good. There are not a lot of bells and whistles but what is included works well, and sounds great. It is a very good buy.

      Really love the feel and playability of this Guitar. The neck is a great size and the sound is wonderful. A minimal investment for someone who is getting back into playing after a long break. This will be a favorite for many years. I compare this guitar to my son's Fender Squire and find that it is much more comfortable.

      Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

      Bought this guitar for my son from the used gear section. Out of the box, I had to file the rough fret edges. Intonation was a bit off and I couldn't fix the intonation on the low E string because the bridge screw would not back out far enough. I was working on a budget, but wish I could have spend a little more for a little better guitar. Maybe replacing the bridge would have worked. But for the price, it's okay. The finish is good. And after stretching the strings, they seemed to stay in tune.

        Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

        We just picked this up for my Son for Christmas. Naturally I had to crack open the box to check it out, I am impressed! Great looks, quality build,& excellent tone. It won't be confused for a much more expensive Gibson, but I would be willing to bet people will be shocked when you tell them how much it really cost. The only issue I have experienced at this point is a sticky selector switch. It was stiff out of the box, but is loosening up with use. Otherwise, so far so good.
        Thanks Dean!

          Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

          The guitar arrived promptly, and was well packaged. It will be my 12 year old daughter's first electric.

          I am floored by the quality of the guitar--- I didn't think one of this quality could be had for such a low price. It has nice low action, and sounds great right out of the box (keeping in mind that this is an extremely cheap guitar; the tone will not be mistaken for a Les Paul or similar).

          The only issue I had with the guitar is the frets; they simply MUST be filed down. The edges were sharp, making it uncomfortable out of the box. It was easy to file down; it took about 30 minutes.

          This is an extremely good guitar for a beginner, or an experienced musician that wants to keep the miles off the more expensive rigs. It sounds great with the setup my daughter will be getting for Christmas (which includes a small Fender Frontman practice amp and a Digitech RP250 effects processor).

                The guitar itself plays and sounds fine and holds its tune better than I was expecting. I was disappointed that Musician's Friend sent me the wrong color (and the body was damaged). Since I'm deployed military, I didn't have time to mess around with shipping it back, so I asked for some money back. They cut a small amount off the price, which seemed insufficient for their error, but it is what it is. Customer service could have been better.

                    Just started playing. I mean literally just started. I've been practicing every day and its a great feel great sound. I had a friend who has played for years and is in a signed band tune it and jam with it for a little bit and he said its a great sounding guitar, especially for the price.

                      For a beginner, doing chords and bends for the first time seems to be easy and scares me! Getting comments from the other rooms in the house like, "Hey...you're really getting good!"
                      Yet, I know it's the electric guitar that should take all the credit.
                      Wasn't sure such a reasonably priced guitar would sound this good, but, IT DOES!!!

                        I'm an experienced bassist but new to guitar. I wanted something cheap to write music on. This guitar was certainly cheap!

                        The feel is really quite nice. I've played it only through amp modellers and I've used high-gain models as well as clean models. In both cases, the guitar performs pretty admirably as long as you put on a noise gate. Without one, the pickups are pretty buzzy. I've also recorded a short death metal track with it--as long as you've got decent production skills you can get a pretty good sounding recording out of it.

                        The bridge/tailpiece is pretty solid. If you're buying a guitar this cheap, go with a fixed bridge like this one instead of a trem. Manufacturers save a lot of money on hardware for cheap models and a bad trem ruins an otherwise usable guitar.

                        The tuners seem ok. They hold tune well enough for practicing and a little recording, but I probably wouldn't count on it holding for a whole set on stage.

                        Overall, I'd consider this a great deal, but not a great guitar. It's certainly good enough for what I want, which is songwriting and demo recording. I may even buy another to keep in standard tuning since mine is tuned down to B.
