    I seriously considered buying one (semihollow version), as I was looking for a semihollow at the time. But I found a spector for only $150 more that looked a little nicer, and it didn't have all the mediocre reviews that the Dean did. They're alright for the money though.

    I had the semi hollow fretless version, with F-holes. I thought it was a very nice bass. Nice sounding bass, easy to play once setup. I bought mine used and it showed up with the worst setup ever, but I tweaked on it for a while and got it to my liking and it played great.

  4. Get a Dean Raphsody 12 string. Talk about a fat sound!!!

    its fun to mess around with, was a little to heavy for the sound i was going for though : \.

    alright, thanks. one more thing. i play in a rock/punk band i also play motown on my own. i am currently lookin for a new bass and ive come across
    A) 1996 Fender lyte with jazz neck and EMG pickups
    B) Dean Rhapsody 4 string
    C) Dean vintage

    which do you guys recomend? im really wanting the Fender. i think its the best buy out of them it has the P/J pickups too *im hopefully purchasing it from funicicle or somthing like that from this forum*

    thanks, again,
    JJ :bassist:
