I stopped by my local guitar shop to apply for a job and played some basses. I played basicaly every Fender there.. (i do this all the time just to see if anythings changed in my tastes for basses) and didnt like any of them except a Deluxe Zone. I dont have any money so i wasnt looking to buy a bass any way. But i saw a Dean and plguged it in to a Fender 60 watt amp and this bass is amazing. I dont know the exact model. It was a 4 string and had a finish like the SX "TM" or something. It had a really nice slap tone, better than all the Fenders. It cost around $825 i think. Any idea what model this was? Anyone own a Dean instrument?
