Well, I am completely happy with my stable of basses at the moment which, of course, means it is time to get started researching my next purchase. It is gonna happen...why deny it. I just accept it for what it is by this point! I was watching a video on Youtube of a well-known shredder and his bass player caught my eye. Seems like he is the CEO of Dean guitars. Really excellent player as well. I really liked his tone. So I got to researching his company. Honestly, I have always known Dean makes basses, but always thought they were sort've on the lower end of the quality and performance spectrum. So, sort've overlooked them. But man, started going through their website and there were some really, really awesome looking selections on their catolog. The Juggernaut and Paramount (J and P bass styles) really caught my eye....as did the Eric Bass sig model. Really nice looking instruments. Priced in the mid-range category but with some really nice specs and just looked top-notch. I noticed that most of the players that endorse Dean are metal guys it seems, but like Eric Bass and Shinedown and just kind've caught my attention. His sig model looks incredible. Not a lot of info on here about Dean. Doesn't get much notice. Any particular love and/or hate for their stuff? In general what is the consensus of their bass selections. I honestly have never seen one...except one time a cheap one hanging in the used section of a GC store. Just curious what everyone thought about them.
