    So I need some money for the holidays. I have three Dean basses for sale.

    1. Dean Fretless

    Here is a bass that needs a little work, a five sting fretless Dean bass. I won this one on ebay thinking I would start playing fretless. The neck is in good shape. It plays similar to my Ibanez SR basses, pretty narrow. The previous owner added EMG pickups and tone controls which sound pretty good. It has a transparent gray wood grain finish.

    Now for the issues. The bass came with the some of the oldest strings I have seen on a bass. I might have a set of D'Addario XL to go with it. The bridge is bent at the bottom lifting up from the body. It does not to appear to be pulling or coming off but this does effect the action some. With a new bridge I think the action could get really low.

    There is also a nice Fender hardshell case that comes with the bass.

    2. Dean Stylist

    I hate to sell this one. This is a fun bass to play. It is had Chrome flats on it and plays pretty well. This is nice and thumpy. It comes with a Dean Gig bag.

    Now for the issues. It has a finish blemish at the neck joint. No structural issue. I have had this one for four years with no issue. I have it set up the action a little high right now.

    I really could use [DEL]$350[/DEL] $325 plus shipping

    3. Dean Pace

    Here is a five string Dean Pace bass. Their version of an electric upright. I get stopped any time I take this bass out to play. You can get a nice pizzicato sound. You can slap it and get a great rockabilly sound as well. Comes with the stand and original case. All are in good order. Also have a five string set of chromes to go with it.

    Now for the modifications. Originally these basses were passive with only a volume control. I added a basic two band acoustic preamp from artec to buffer the pickup better. Controls are on the back and do not get in the way. I used the battery cavity that Dean left in the basses when the wear designed for active.

    I am open to offers. I would prefer a straight purchase instead of trades. But you can always hit me up with any trade ideas. Help a fellow bass player get a few Christmas gifts for the kids.

    What does the Stylist sound like? I see that it's a hollow body, would it be considered to sound like a jazz or p bass? Sort of an acoustic sound when amplified? Sorry about the noob questions, but...I'm a noob. LOL

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    The Stylist is more thumpy sounding than a p bass. More like a a hofner/beatle sound. I have flats on it now so it is very 60s sounding. I do not have sound clips but here is a youtube video.


    Putting flats on this bass made a big improvement on the sound. I ave Chromes on their so you can still get some dig/growl or a nice retro motown tone.

    Looks like the Stylist may have a home but the other two basses are still looking for a new place to live.
