Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

Guitar needed setup something awful. Paint job had runs in it and had several high frets that made for several dead frets and the action had to be set much higher than desired.

Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

The guitar is good, as I expected it would be, as others on the web mentioned this being an inexpensive guitar compared to others you would not know that by picking it up and putting it thru a session. Being said corners are cut somewhere. Fret ends are not smooth, but really very easy and fast fix-not really a big deal at all. Lastly I want to comment on the paint, from two to three feet away it looks awesome like aluminum-really cool in person, but when you look close you see scratched under the paint pretty much all over that are in fact filled thru the finishing process with clear. They appear to be sanding scratches or possible grain filler shrinkage, don't know for sure it is not my profession (finishing guitars).

First one showed up with the headstock damaged, so it was sent back and replaced by musicians friend.

Finding a hard shell case: very difficult, well impossible to find the correct "Dean" case from Musicians Friend web. Ended up finding it on deans web and purchased it direct from them much cheaper than anywhere else and of course free shipping.

Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

I've been a drummer for 20 years; since age 10; and a guitarist for 2 years as well; so I know instruments very well at this point. This is my 5th guitar, and also my favorite guitar for playing metal! I would rather play metal on this Dean than on my BC Rich Warlock, my Fender American Strat, and even my PRS (mid 1980's model), because of the chunky/crunchy screaming sound that this Dean puts out. Up close, this Dean has low quality 'rushed' body prep under the paint, as I can see coarse sandpaper scratches under the paint - however, this beautiful, bright, high-metallic silver paint actually gives it a brushed aluminum sort of look which I actually like, and from 8 feet away, the sandpaper scratches are not visible. It looks like they focused on putting the money and effort into making it sound and play as best as they could for this price point. They sacrificed a little on the appearance in exchange for decent sound quality. These passive dual humbuckers are excellent! I originally wanted to put some upgraded humbuckers,but I've decided to leave it just how it is. I love this guitar!

    Comments about Dean Vendetta XM Electric Guitar:

    I am a huge Dean fan. This is my 23rd Dean guitar. I have Fenders and Gretschs that I love, but this guitar has GREAT low action, is super light, and is very loud. I had my doubts because of the price, but working retail myself, sometimes the price reflects the company's effort to move the product out in order to make room for new merchandise. Excellent guitar. Ok it's not hand made with fancy finger board inlays, but the frets are flush with the neck, the pickups are great and very easy to adjust, re-stringing is super fast, the truss rod is very good and easy to set (I didn't have to), and the sound is very clear.
