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!!!

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.

Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

I move around a lot and am tired of losing valuable equipment. I bought this guitar to write and flesh out new material and to be more to the point, I was surprised. Considering the price little work is needed to get this guitar sounding great on the peavey vypyr vip1 I bought strictly to accompany it. Worst feature is the frets are rough and need filed, so be warned on that end. A little tweaking on the modeling amp and this guitar sounds like a much more expensive model.

    Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

    The Shop that did the Set-up was able to do it. The Musician's Friend Folks were outstanding on their return policy. The Folks I dealt with were knowledgeable and professional. They put up with my persistence to get a working, useable guitar. I would use these Folks again and recommend them to others. Not because the quality of the Dean Product but because of their People and return policy. They paid far more in shipping for the 3 returns than I did for the Guitar.

      Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

      First off, i have to say if i say anything negative, it should be taken with a grain of salt because in its price range, this is a great guitar.

      Right out of the box, i found the color not matching the image, however personally i found its true color pleasing. The guitar has a comfortable feel, not overly heavy, but not cheap feeling either. The neck feels comfortable, the tuners generally stay well in tune. i like the adjustable bridge, its a nice feature. The tone control is decently dynamic. the selector is a bit sticky sometimes, and that can become annoying. Also i find that the pickups are a bit close in range so as not to give the greatest differentiation, but still, its not an expensive guitar.

      So all in all, i recommend this model for the price, it has a good sound and i find it pleasing. it also has a lot of potential. I made just go crazy and drop some P-90's in there, who knows. lol :) great for starter, or just a base for a custom.

        Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

        Purchased as a practice, knock around guitar. Like the sound and performability better than Les Paul or 335. It plays a lot like Strat but with less weight than any of the above. All around great guitar. I just don't see how Dean can make this quality guitar and sell for this price. I use it for Country/western Bluegrass, and Gospel. Great all around guitar.

        Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

        Good price, but stated 'near new' condition did not indicate major dent on top edge of body, so bad so that a piece of the body was ready to fall out. Needed serious setup to get rid of fret buzz, and at the same time managed to rid of 'drop outs' on the pickups (i assume because the strings were actually too close to the pickups).

        However, after a little TLC, new strings and a little patience, great practice and jamming axe.

          • Garage Rocker

          Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

          This is an excellent choice for the moola. The finish is more of a primer-like matte, the selector switch needs a shot of tuner cleaner, and the frets could use a little softening on the edges. This guitar sounds like a hopped-up Les Jr. through my 50-watt, all tube combo (which I also purchased from Musician's Friend and could't be happier with), and played within modest expectations right out of the box. Nice litte rocker!

            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.
