    Thinking of buying this bass (lefty) new for $349.
    Not familiar with Deans. Any comments?
    Seems like a decent bass for the money. It's hard to find acoustic leftys!!!!

    One of my local stores has had several of these over the last year or so.

    I've always been impressed with their quality and playability, especially for the price.

    Yes, a Tacoma Thunderchief blows one away, but the Dean is 1/3 the price!

    I wouldn't feel underpowered with a Dean acoustic bass at all...
  3. I bought my wife a performer acoustic guitar. if the bass is anything like the guitar, it should be one heck of an instrument.
    I'm a big fan of Deans. I think they make awesome instruments for an awesome price.
