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.

nice cheap guitar to practice on

Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

overall i really enjoyed being a critic with this guitar it was a lot of fun playing around with it
i had bought this guitar to give me something to bang around and have fun with it, by no means is it going to replace my tele or les paul, it works great to try different pick ups and other little gadgets to play with, i do like to plug it in to a digitech effects processor, you can get a zillion sounds out of it, so if you want something that your going to play at a gig, this is not what you want, but if your a beginner or just someone that likes to go electric once in awhile i think you will like this guitar, i mean you can buy the guitar new for a great price most of the time
bolt on neck, and it is really light, just dont drop our throw it and you should be ok
i think any electric for this price is a deal

Good starter guitar, but sent wrong one!

Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

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.

      Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is a lot nicer than I expected considering what the price is. The construction is solid and it feels great. The only reason I knocked it down a star is the fret issue that others have mentioned. I've had the guitar for a day and my left index and middle fingers are all cut up from the sharp frets. Keep in mind when buying this that you'll most likely have to get them filed down. That is my only complaint. You won't find another guitar at this price that competes with this one.

        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.

        Worth The Money

        By Wayne Campbell

        from Alabama

        Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

        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.

        Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

        Purchased just before a sale. Real guitarists who've played it gave it a thumbs up. One of tone nobs isn't super secure but hasn't came off. It's a little slippery to hold when your practicing on a stool so get a solid strap to insure it doesn't slide out on you. I was surprised how heavy it was but then its been 35 years since I held a solid body electric. It didn't need any adjusting, holds tune and for a beginner it would make sense if they received one like it. Dean's got their act together on this one.

          Best Uses

          • Slide

          Comments about Dean Evo XM Electric Guitar:

          Get one of these and a Grover Perfect Guitar Nut, raise the pickups as high as you can, turn the volume and tone all the way up, pair it with a cheap, sleazy amp and maybe your favorite squawky wah, and you have a truly nasty, greasy, slide machine. You won't play anything on it other than slide, but you won't want to.

          Seriously. Trust me on this.
