    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:

      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.

          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.

            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.
