Basically this guitar is amazing, some guy below said something about the neck not being fast and floyd not stay in tune and the pick ups being weak, maybe his got damage or he just got a badly produced one somehow because Ive played several diffrent versions of this guitar and different ones of the same version, all amazing new, used whatever this guitar is fast as hell and has some of the sickest tone I've ever heard, and the floyd rose never budged for me, whether this is on sale, used or full price if you're looking for a GOOD guitar get this, it doesn't get better.
I fell in love with the looks of this Dean Vendetta 4.0 guitar first off. It is very sleek and elegant. I have a Warlock and a Mockingbird but I wanted something a little faster. I love the way it sounds, handles, and feels. I have played more expensive guitars, the two I own were higher priced but this really performs. Nice fat frets and the neck is very thin and flat but is more playable than the Jackson neck. I don't fatigue even playing longer sets. The electronics are high quality and the pickups are just right for a great all around sound no matter the style, Sabbath to Slayer. I have a friend that plays professionally and he was very impressed with my "out of the box" guitar compared to his expensive guitars. The guitar was professionally set up at a music store when I bought it and I have not regretted this purchase. I recommend to anyone looking for a guitar with great playability. It keeps it in your hands and out of the case longer.
Ok, this guitar does have some great features. Now lets run down the list. First let me tell you why I bought this. I own a jackson rhoads rr2. I love the guitar but since I am gigging a lot I really don't like bringing it out. So I bought this because the features are great on it almost similar to a rhoads. But it really doesn't meet an of my expectations the neck just seems like a toy neck. Not fast at all not really thin either. Oh yeah the pickups sound very weak as well. But im sorry its not a horrible guitar but if you are buying it to shred and play fast then then this is not the right guitar for you. #1 reason floyd rose will never I repeat never ever stay in tune.
I Played one of these at a local music store a few months ago (it STILL hasnt sold). At first i thought, "oh cool, a dean!". It looked great in that trans black, although it shows a little less detail then it does in the picture. The floyd rose worked great, despite being out of tune from.. i dont really know.After it was tuned i started playin and noticed the coil tap, which is a nice feature, i really liked it. But then i actually started shredding and i just felt.. sluggish. The neck was very thin, easy for metal and such, but this.. like the person that assembled it was having a bad day or something, and the neck wasn't oiled properly? It just felt slow. I dont know why. In all, if the unit at the music store had a better neck, i'd buy it in a heartbeat.
In terms of playability, the Vendetta V4F has it in spades. I would definitely put it in the same class as many of the Fenders I've played. I was able to achieve a very reasonable action after spending a little time on the setup. The humbuckers on this model are adequate, though most finicky players will likely swap them out. My "overall" rating is higher than the other categories because I would give this guitar a five for playability.The Floyd Rose licensed tremolo is capable of some very deep dives, and the guitar stays in tune quite well. I don't like the fact that three different size allen wrenches are required for a full setup, but once it's done you're in business. If you've never tinkered with this type of arrangement before, don't be intimidated. However, those that are mechanically challenged might want to steer away from Floyd Rose altogether.The size of this guitar is somewhat diminutive. It is lightweight, and produces a reasonable sustain. Not as much sustain as my LPs, but it is comfortable and attractive. If you are looking for a reasonably priced Strat knockoff with a good tremolo, then this guitar is definitely worth a try.
Ive been playing this guitar for a couple weeks now. First thing I noticed was the neck. Its as thin and flat as any Ibanez Ive ever played. This thing easily out runs my Jackson DKMG. The fret size is perfect for me. Their big, but not clumsy big. I started shopping for pick ups before this guitar arrived in the mail, but after playing it a while, I'm sticking with the stock. Very surprised. No problems with the "licensed" tremolo or electronics yet. So far, this is the fastest most responsive guitar Ive played. Despite the thin neck and touch responsive fret board (if set up right) it actually fees substantial and high quality. If you are a Jackson or Ibanez fan, you owe it to your self to try this guitar. You could be missing out. Going from a Dinky to this 4.0 is like going from a Corvette to a Ferrari. $ well spent.
This guitar has it all - Mahogany body, through-neck design, killer finish, eye-catching looks, great neck, original Floyd Rose tremelo, Grover tuners. For the features, the price is great. The playability is fantastic. The Floyd Rose can take Steve Vai-style abuse with no problems. The tone is full and warm. It feels like a solid, well-built piece of equipment. I've played my share of Ibanez, Schecter, Fender, Gibson etc. I think I just became a Dean Guy. P.S. If you want to see a pro shred on this guitar look up David Shankle (Manowar/DSG) on Youtube, look for his 2010-present vids, he plays a customized Vendetta 4F on some of them and melts faces.
I got a Dean Vendetta a year ago and I love it. I play everything from blues to heavy metal and this guitar can play it all. I also like the way it looks, with the evil eye inlays and the thru-neck. The only thing I can complain about is the pick ups don't have the crunch I need for the heavier styles of metal I play. I'm thinking about putting in some emg's to make it really roar. Basically, its a great guitar.
