Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass

Ideal for the beginning bassist, or those looking to beef-up their arsenal without going over-budget, this Dean EABC bass gives incredible sound and value.
The Dean EABC Electric Acoustic Bass is the perfect starter bass guitar for the beginning bass player. Now you can play bass with or without an amp! This is a comfortable bass that's loud enough for jam sessions with acoustic guitar players, and has the onboard electronics to let you take it right up on stage. Its comfortable cutaway provides easy access to the upper frets.

For home recording, an acoustic bass is absolutely perfect because you get an incredible sound and you don't have to spend time finding the "sweet spot" miking up a speaker cabinet. Dean is really doin' it right with the Playmate Electric Acoustic Bass.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I might replace it someday for something better, but for now I am satisfied. I will be looking for an electric bass this will not do in that setting. Overall for the price it's fantastic. I play a guitar usualy, I Play bass for my own recordings. I have been playing for for well over 20 years and make up my own original tunes.
Sound
Well The sound is great acousticly, but the elrctronics could be alot better. I think It needs to be proffesionaly Tuned and maybe better strings would help as I do get a Twanging vibration that effects the sound. I don't think it is enough to warrant return of the Guitar Just needs Tweeking.
Features
What can I say The electronics could be better. but for the price what features do you expect. It plays well.
Ease of Use
It has pretty good action but like I said I think If I had it proffesionaly tweeked by someone qualified to do it it will sound even better.
Quality
It is built very well. If taken care of should last for many many years.
Value
I think it is worth more then what I payed for it.
