    Wow, guys, those are seriously nice. That orange burst is something else. :thumbsup:

    I'm thinking someone should start a Made in Czech Republic Club!

    I have to second that. Usually I do not like anything of the 'clown burst' persuasion, but that orange burst is done just right! :drool:

    Hah! My least favourite Dean burst is Tiger Eye. I can't put my finger on why, but it just doesn't work for me. Still, the cherry burst on my DOA#1 V is only two colour, and is nowhere near as nice as the 3 colour burst on the USA guitars.

    I will post pics when i can, having major issues with computer! Btw, im on my 5th coat of Tru Oil on the fretboard and its looking really darker and deeper...i rolled the fretboard edges and the rosewood board is a great piece (i think its rosewood) with tight straight grain...now i have to figure out strings as i think these may be the stock round strings...i dont want to lose any 'mwa' in the tone but flats would be nice though apparently i would lose some 'mwa'.

    On the Tru Oil, i started with a very thin cot after sanding lightly, then each coat is still thin....cannot hurry this process...at least 24 hours between coats....i will do at least 10 thin coats then scuff/polish with 2000 grit.

    B-Mac, could you post pictures of your Dean Stylist. I'm wanting a semi hollow bass and I see a few for sale. Anything you have to say about this bass would be appreciated.

    Is Brian playing a older model than the sales brochure shows? His has f holes instead of slash holes

    I'm not certain what hole I like best, f hole looks more vintage. I saw the ones on reverb and I like them all except the yellow cab model.

    The Cabbie was also brought back in 2014, but not the rest of the Stylist basses.

    Got this 2017 MIK 12string Rhapsody a few weeks ago on ebay for a great price from the bass player of the Cheap Trick cover band known as ‘Cheap Trickster’.
    It’s something else to play. Much different than my 8 string Rhapsody.

    Cool bass, I would like to try one some day. Must feel really weird under your fingers.

    Definitely different. Two course octave isn’t that bad, but three course octave is pretty tough with the lil ol pinky! :smug:
    Gotta get that pinky into weight training!:laugh:
    Need some advice from @2many

    I said about a year ago that I was going to buy a Dean Edge 3, but then I got caught up buying a couple rigs and some G&L and Cort basses and never got around to it. Well I spotted the same silverburst I had tried before and gave it another whirl.

    Yep, it still sounded great. I then tried a new Sterling Ray34 and a couple other basses and you can guess which one came home with me.

    I'll give a review on it later after I have played with it a bit, but as of right now I can say the electronics are very hot, very punchy and very articulate. The volume just might be about the same as my G&L M2000's, but I'll check for sure later. Also the finish is really nice, pictures don't really do it justice. Pretty happy so far.
