This review is from: Dean Vendetta Guitar, XM with Tremelo (Electronics)

I do own this very guitar/ but in transparent black, like the red one, you can see the wood-grain, it,s just not as pronounced. I recomend you have the guitar ‘set-up’ by the seller, and don’t let’em tell you it’ll cost more, any decent guitar-shop will do a ‘set-up’ just for buying the guitar. First off, it sounds way better than my ‘Fender Stratacaster’, and I’m not talking about the cheap ‘Fender Squire’. It sounds great clean or distorted. The clean sound is an almost perfect accoustic sound. The pick-ups sound so good I have no intentions of changing them, but I did up-grade the volume & tone pots after a while, cost was about 10.00. The stock volume & tone pots are very good, I just thought for 10 bones what the heck, and they did make a difference, the stock strings are good, but when it was time to replace, holy-cow, what difference, I should have done it the first day. It’s very light, but has good balance, and the sustain is awsome. Again, the tones are great as long as I don’t use the tremalow or ‘wammy-bar’.
As soon as you use the wammy-bar it goes out of tune pretty quickly. I’ve had mine for about 6 months and I know I made the right choice for this price-range. I looked at the Jacksons & Ibanez’s in this price range, both are great guitars, but are only 22fret guitars, this Dean is a full-size 24 fret guitar, and my final reason for choosing over the others. I hope this review was helpful, Dave
