Has anyone used/owned a Dean Juggernaut or Paramount bass?

    I've been looking at these and they're going for pretty low at GC. I own a Dean Edge 09 and I like it very much.

    How would the Dean P and J basses compare to a standard Fender J or P bass? (In terms of quality, sound, etc.) Also how would it compare to one of the newer Squier basses?

    Would the Dean bass be good in the long run?

    A few Paramount and Juggernaut owners.

    I just recently bought an open box Juggernaut and love it. The neck is thin and fast. 9.2 lbs. 22 frets

    For $299 it’s a steal
    Made at Un Sung factory in Korea

    Do you think this bass would last in the long run and would it be good to mod?

    I purchased Dean USA DMT hot and vintage pups for it but have not yet put them in.

    As far as whether it will last I don’t see why it wouldn’t. It has an Alder body which is more durable than basswood.

    @Sub-Frequency gigs with his Paramount

    @Jimbowhit7 has several sound samples of his Paramount posted at Dean Club!!!

    @Mark Yurick also recently bought a Paramount and loves it.

    Just noticed that the Paramount is now down to $259 at GC, MF, M123 and W&B

    Just noticed that the Juggernaut is now down to $264 at MF and W&B

    Just pulled the trigger on a Juggernaut. Was looking to get a J style bass on a budget, something to put a set of flats & StrapLoks on and play. First looked at a new production Squier CV, but reading the reviews convinced me to take a chance on this model. Cost $247 (down from $264) after applying existing MF Loyalty Points, tax and shipping included. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    Also pulled the trigger on a Paramount...to use it for flat tunings. I strongly prefer leaving my existing P basses in standard tuning and not changing the relief/intonation for different situations. Some of the blues people I meet want the guitars in E flat A430 tuning, and I lost interest in 5 string basses 2 decades ago, so this bass will find its Special Purpose (just like Navin Johnson).
