    Style of Music: Classic Rock Cover; Jazz; Liturgical; bass and guitar

    Experience: Active Musician

    "This is a lot of guitar for the money. A great way to explore the world of the acoustic bass guitar."

    Sound:
    Acoustic sound is very nice...even on the B string. Passive piezo pickup system, with volume and tone sliders, produces rather thin amplified sound. After I ran it through an effects pedal which allowed me to bring up the gain from the pickup and boost the low end this baby really started getting me excited. Fret tap and string noise which is present through the standard EQ can be reduced substantially with additional preamp EQ adjustments, yet the acoustic resonance remains. I will replace the passive EQ with an active unit, including an upgraded piezo pickup. Change the strings and upgrade the EQ to active and you have an acoustic bass that can really put out some nice sound.
    Feature:
    Mahogany back and sides, a select Spruce top, 24 jumbo fret Rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, sealed tuners, full size body with 18" lower bout and cutaway, 34" scale length. Satin finish body and neck. The tuners are fine and everything fits together and holds a tuning well. No case comes with it. Guitar Center sells one for about $150. Musician's Friend sells a gig bag for $30. This is one BIG GUITAR. Not many case options are available.
    Quality:
    The EABC 5 I got was used: a 2006. The intonation on the used Dean I have is perfect, and the frets were dressed fine and produced no discomfort while playing. Can't say the same for a couple of floor models I tested at Guitar Center.
    Value:
    You get a lot for a little money; nice finish, body and neck binding, sound hole rosette, good tone.
    The Wow Factor:
    The Dean EABC 5 has a very nice appearance. Works in really well for playing acoustic sets. Looks and sounds good.
    Overall:
    I going to keep this until it is either destroyed in a house fire, someone steals it or I am physically no longer able to play. If it were stolen or destroyed I would get another ABG, but probably a higher grade instrument. This one is fine for me now and showed me what can be done with an ABG.
