I purchased the Vendetta 1.0 for the sole purpose of playing Blues. I didn't expect a perfect instrument for the price I paid, but was I ever surprised. The Vendetta is a joy to play. Perfect intonation and great tone through my Fender amp. Very easy to fret and lightweight to boot. Holds perfect tune. The only thing I would change in the design is separate volume and tone controls for the humbuckers, if I had my druthers. I have been playing guitars for well over 40 years, and the Dean Vendetta 1.0 is in the top five of my 'Top Forty' list of my favorite guitars.

This dean was my first guitar. Immediately after opening the box, I noticed that the tip of the head had the wood chipped off of it. Not a big deal (Adds Character right?). Rather than hassling our good friends at MF, I sucked it up and started playing. Out of the box, the dean was nearly in tune, and would hold one very well. About a month later, the 1/4" input jack started to short out. All and all, the throughbody design makes this guitar look clean and it plays well. The wood used in the stock is sub-par and electronics issues make me say that I cannot justify going with another low-mid end dean again.

Extraordinary Value

By LEONARD

Verified Buyer

Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for jams & vacation (motorhome camping) because I didn't want to subject my higher quality guitars to harsh environments.This guitar is better than I expected. I'm running it thru my Fender Passport practice amp.connected with 10 feet of black tweed cable This guitar fits best in the Musicians Gear tweed case. The headstock hits the bottom of the black case because the neck rest is too low. Fender is OK in MG black case. There is a lot of good value here & I'm going to have fun with this!

    its alright

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is alright for the price. I had a problem with the neck. It sounded like it was cracking, the tuners were garbage and the frets were way too sharp. I sent the guitar to Deans custom shop in Florida where they do their warranty work. They replaced the neck and did a set up. I was mad because the neck that came with the guitar had colored inlays and the neck they put on doesnt and felt cheap. The frets on the new neck are as sharp as the other ones and the new tuners are just as crappy. Dean does not do good warranty work so keep that in mind if you have a problem. Maybe they do a better job if the guitar costs more, but I have no interest in buying another Dean because of this.

    Epic Value

    By Cody_TOTD

    from Glencoe,Alabama

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    I traded an Ibanez AX1220 Prestige model guitar for the Dean. The Vendetta is just more suited for what I needed. It is lightweight, with a fast neck, and 24 frets. The tone is by far the best I have heard for this price. I write music for my metal band on this thing and we play in drop B, and I have to admit I am surprised by these cheap tuners that come stock so far. They only need to be tweaked every hour or so. At this price, you will not beat this guitar. Go ahead buy it, save some money and buy upgrades for it. You will not regret it!

    You get what you pay for...

    By Comfortably Numb--J.fi

    from Tennessee

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    Where to begin? First, if you are considering purchasing this guitar, the finish in the picture is considerably darker than what you'll receive. Not a huge deal, but not what I was expecting. When I pulled the Vendetta 1 out of the box, I noticed minor imperfections and dings in the paint. That could just add to the character of this "Made In China" guitar. What disappointed me was that the neck had a "hump" that caused the strings to rattle against the frets when played. Once I got it into a more suitable condition, it has played very well, and sounds great. Overall, it's a nice enough guitar for what you'll pay for it.

    Awesome

    By matthewhayden93

    from Alabama

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is absolutely amazing! I had the Vendetta XM, which was a piece of crap, but then i saw this one, and i thought it looked the same but like it was made better, like it wont break if i look at it the wrong way, so i sent the other one back because it was giving me problems and got this one, and i've had it almost a year now and it hasnt let me down. tone is great, clean and distorted. sustain is good on my boss mega distortion pedal, and it is the most comfortable guitar i have played. i also love how light it is. whether you are on a tight budget or not, this guitar is worth the buy. no need to buy replacement pickups, these sound great, but it would be unstoppable with some seymore duncans. :P it also works well with various styles of music, from classic rock to heavy metal, this guitar delivers. now i want to save up and get the vendetta 6.0 with the floyd rose. :)

    say 'ello to my little friend

    By Ibanez Stalker

    from St. Joseph, MO

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    I have been looking for a low-priced show/backup axe, and I believe I've found the right one! After looking for months, I came across the Vendetta 1. This guitar is definitely worth the price offered. The stock pickups are fine for practice, and I would also recommend them for shows. They sound decent when playing clean, and they sound great distorted (I myself am a metal player). When used with a Line 6 amp -on the "insane" distortion setting, this little guy sounds heavy, with plenty of "attack". I highly recommend this product for someone on a budget!!! I was not disappointed...

    Great Guitar

    By RobTipton

    from PA

    Comments about Dean Vendetta 1 Electric Guitar:

    Well, lets see. I've owned this guitar for 5 years now and have played over 100 live shows with it. No doubt this thing has held up completely throughout the years. The only thing that it suffers from is the pickups could be better but what would you expect for 219? Overall this guitar is simply amazing, it will hold up through anything.
