    That is a mix between a thumb and a dolphin. Kinda cool, and I wou;d probably play one.

    Mahogany neck and body, rosewood board....that thing will probably sound really weak, especially the B string.
     
  7. i played one...felt great never plugged it in i wasn't really impressed by the hardware and the pickups seemed cheap but reasonably priced for what you're getting

    Hmm... $560 at music123. If it has decently wide string spacing, it's MIINNNEEEEE!

    I can understand when companies from asia produce cheap clones of well-known basses. But when it's a big company like Dean, I think they could at least come up with their own designs! :mad:

    Looks like Dean just improved on the utterly dismal ergonomics of the Warwick Thumb, and made it into a bass cheap enough for just about anyone to purchase. Sounds cool to me.

    Not quite. I played a Gibson Les Paul 5 string with the same woods and it sounded friken great.

  16. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Tou-che!

    Also, I like the look of the Dean better than the Warwick it resembles from the 1st posting's link

    (edited to better explain my initial comment, thus killing any effect it had in the first place and negating any past postes rebutting my initial comments.... dig?)

    I have a 4 & a 5 and they're pretty good basses. The 4 is my fave of the two, because it has growl for days! The B on the 5 isn't bad, but I converted to E to C for solos and whatnot. Both basses definately cut through with no problem. My guitarist switched companies. He now plays a Gibson Firebird through a Marshall stack, and that Sledgehammer 4 gets through with NO problem! As for companies not having "original" designs............
