    Just got her today...natural finish.I also own a Gibson hummingbird and a martin D-16.Here is my take on this guitar.1st it really bugs me that people buy this type of guitar and start trying to compare to the over-priced brands.First thing i did was set the action and replace the strings with martin silk and steel and what you have is a very sweet sounding auditorium size guitar.Thats not meant to compare with the big Dreads buy gibson and martin.If thats what you really want to hear you are just going to have to shell out the big bucks and buy one and stop slamming these guitars.I plugged my dean into a roland ac-60 and the sound was very pleasing and clean.You can take my martin and plug into a cheap amp or P.A and it will sound hollow..You just have to know how to make everything blend.When im alone playing i would be just as happy to play the dean as well as my gibson but if im going to jam with a band i want the gibson or martin i would not expect the dean to perform in that situation.You just buy any guitar based on what you are going to use it for.And it took me some time myself to realize that too.There are some pretty good guitars coming from china and indonesia these days with decent sound and craftsmanship is pretty darn good these days.As players we have alot more choices these days..Enjoy what you have or spend more money..You will not get times the sound for times the money..belive me i have tried.

    after lowering the action and putting on a decent set of strings, this guitar will work fine for what I wanted it for. The tuner, which is also one of the reasons I picked this guitar is junk. I'll keep it, will make a good knock around for the price.

    Good starter

    By Name-fgy_M

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar seven years ago as my very first guitar. Out of the box it is a little shaky. I would reccomend getting the action adjusted. I did a year or so after purchasing and it did wonders for the playability. Its sounds decent with a good set of strings. It projects very well with good volume and a warm tone. All in all for a first guitar to learn on its a great instrument. I would reccomend for an entry level instrument.

    Lets play

    By Pete-a9GJS

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Purchased this to improve playing ability and frequency of playing seeing how ya can just bring it anywhere ya want to... Opened up the box and was immediatly impressed with this guitar. Most likely not a live stage instrument unless in the proper hands, however and extremely excellent practice and learning tool I would recommend to anyone at this price.. I have played others around this price range and this one is TOPS..

    EPIC Acoustic Axe!

    By Paul Lowery

    from Schenectady, NY

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is all I expected of it and more. I ordered mine online in the blue sunburst finish and when I got it I couldn't believe my eyes. It comes with a LOT of premium features for an UNBELIEVABLY low price. High quality finish, multi-ply binding, an abalone rosette, and MORE. I got mine to replace my Ovation Celebrity, and I know what you're thinking...."Buying a Dean to replace an Ovation! Idiot." Well.....I love this Dean more than I ever loved my Ovation but that's just me. One thing I noticed is it didn't come with the tuner/preamp shown in the picture, it came with a BETTER one a Dean i2Nr preamp w/ built-in tuner and let me tell you it is EPIC! Now for the sound, unplugged this axe has a full, rich, raw acoustic sound but plugged in to my Marshall, this thing comes ALIVE!!!! No other guitar in my collection can out match it! Overall, if you like Deans and you want an affordable, good sounding, acoustic axe.....BUY THIS GUITAR!!!!!!

    Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric

    By JerryBrown460181

    from Denison, Texas

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar in "used" condition but it appears to be in new condition from Musicians Friend. This is the first Dean guitar that I've played or owned. I own an Epiphone Masterbilt and an Ibanez AES10ETBS. The sound is very good. Not as good as my Masterbilt but probably a little better than my Ibanez. The action was very high when I received it. Not a bad choice for a first acoustic guitar or (like me) someone who wants one of each!!!

    Great Guitar at about any price

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I just got mine and I'm very pleased. Natural finish looks great. I got it for a Song. I'm not affraid to buy one that's been returned. If your affraid of working on one don't buy any returned equipment. MM has always been great to deal with.This Baby Rocks! I'm starting to look at a 12-string Dean to add to my group of 5 guitars. This one is a keeper.

    From another perspective

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I do a lot of repairs and setups for my students and the general public. I did a setup on one of these and I'm quite impressed with the quality and the way it was set up out of the box. There seems to be extra reinforcement under the fingerboard section that extends over the body. Nice design, it should give more stability to the neck joint and hopefully prevent the need for a neck reset in the future. This model is also the only out-of-the-box guitar I've seen in years that had a properly tensioned truss rod from the factory. The tension was pre-set to accomodate the guage of the factory strings and the neck was perfectly straight! Looks like there was a genuine effort to present the guitar to the buyer in playable condition. I'd recommend this guitar to any of my students looking to buy in this price range.

    Great for the price

    Comments about Dean Performer E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    In hard times, not all of us can get a Taylor, Martin, or Gibson. But this guitar is amazing for the price. Electrics are great and makes this guitar come to life when plugged. The neck is so fast and comfortable. Might want to get a pickguard if not a pure fingerstyle player but very comfortable shape. This guitar is great for the price and I'm actually going to upgrade to another Dean soon! I am looking at a Dean Exotica RSE Supreme which would make a great substitution for any Taylor, Martin, or Gibson. If you want the Dean feel with better quality then i would suggest it but this performer is a real beauty for the pice.
