    New Bass Day!
    Dean John Entwistle Hybrid
    Birthday Present to myself (really just an excuse...I still would have bought if my birthday was 3 months ago)

    This arrived last Moday and I turned 61 this past Saturday.
    This thing is in great shape. Has a good growl with the bass and mids boosted and the highs at detent.

    Dean Announces John Entwistle Signature Series Basses

    [edit] Just noticed the S/N starting with CT.
    That means it is made at the Cor-Tek factory in Indonesia.

    Nice dude…congrats! I’ve always been curious as to why they call this bass a “hybrid”…

    It's an interpretation of John Entwistle's 'Fender Bird' which is a take on Gibson's Thunderbird. So they call it a 'hybrid' with the blessing of John Entwistle's estate.

    That’s a good question since the controls are accessible under the control plate in the back of the bass.

    Hey, EMG pickups!
    Maybe the EMGs in that Motto are the original ones.
