zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Decent, brightish (possibly from unusual finish?) May use it for subtle doubling but I actually bought for the graphic and knockin around ideas around the housse. Feature: Double truss rod is great action adjustment was needed upon arrival but this feature made it a snap. Quality hardware parts all around, tuners etc. Ease of Use: Great neck for an acoustic, plays fast. Quality: Nice job overall, surprised, as the early Deans IMHO were not that good and my employment at a music store back then gave me a generally low opinion of them. This guitar has went along way to changing that opinion VERY good quality especially given the price range. Beautifully slick finish is flawless. Value: Definitely. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt with Dean but they seem to be much more than just a bikini marketed guitar company anymore if this guitar is any representation. The Wow Factor: Great flawless finish and quality piece Overall: Exceeded expectations.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Won't be mistaken for a Martin, but very good as these type of under $500 guitars go, even more so as the selling point on this guitar is cosmetics. Far out performs what I expected. Feature: Dual direction truss rod was invaluable -and worked to perfection- as the neck needed adjustment right out of the box. Tuners good. Not wired for stage but for the price who cares, buy it a mic. Ease of Use: Once the neck was adjusted it plays great. Neck size and action terrific, especially for an acoustic. Playability 9.5. Quality: Overall flawless, looks better in my hands than the photo. The finish is strangely seamless even at edges (lacquer-adhesive?) but it adds to it's slick look. In 20+ years never owned a guitar finished like this, seems sturdy enough, likely at least as tough as the typically fragile cellulose nitrate found on many guitars. Value: Definitely. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed them. The Wow Factor: Great looking piece, could've done without the little 'the player' emblem but the other 99% of the graphic/ paint is outstanding really jumps off the black. Overall: Bought it for stage dressing, play it because it's more comfortable under arm than my concert acoustic. Sounds pretty darn good for something I bought strictly on looks. It's lack of electronics will probably keep it out of regular live rotation but it's fun to play around the house, I may even end up recording with it in spots as it has a different tone than my other acoustics.
