Dean EABC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass

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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Dean products.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (74 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Tihgt Funded acoustic bassn players should buy this."
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. Feature: 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. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: Nothing speacial about this Bass It is well bulit sounds good acousticly. If you are tight on funds and play in an acoustic environment It is a good choice. Overall: 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.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Best bang for buck."
Sound: Why 9/10? Here's the bottom line - this guitar (Dean bass, not necessarily the cut off version) is the best bang for buck. If you're looking for a cheap acoustic electric bass , here it is. It's perfect for a basement jam session. My banging hot girlfriend and I have sexy jam sessions all the time. My friends and I (group of 20) had a Christmas concert and it was perfect for that environment. If you need more volume, plug it in. If you begin to say the sound isn't to your liking, then you're being insufferable and pedantic. It's cheap. It sounds like a bass. If you are looking for a "compatible" sound then you should probably either do more research or drop more $$$ on your shredding axe, brah. Tips to make it sound better - just a warning, the E rattles with the provided strings when played hard. However, through researching the online forums I found that you can eliminate the rattling if you buy after market strings (or raise the bridge, which takes a bit more know how). Still, the cheap price justifies the quality. Feature: Most useful feature? The price. If you're considering this bass, then you're probably looking for something cheap and not too interested in the features. Go for it. Ease of Use: This instrument is as playable as other bass guitars. The strings aren't as hard to press as a fender jazz, but isn't as easy as an Ibanez. Quality: Why 10/10? Again, best bang for buck. Is it as high quality as a Tacoma or even the Ibanez? No, but then again, it's got great sound for the price. Value: Best bang for buck. Manufacturer Support: I can't give a score, since I haven't had to deal with them, but I like the catalogue lay out they provided with the guitar. The Wow Factor: I want it. I want as many guitars as I can possibly have. But I'm cheap and can't justify paying out $800 on an acoustic when I don't even perform anymore. I would have also considered the Ibanez for a couple more 20s, but I already have an ibanez and they didn't have the colour I like. #firstworldproblems Overall: One day I'll be rocking out so hard on that I'll smash it over my sexy girlfriend's head then bang her on top of the shattered remains. Until then I'll be satisfied with it. I'd consider buying it again. I only smash cheap guitars.
Style of Music: only good music.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
