    That's me playing my Dean Rhapsody. That was durring summer camp for the teens at my church. I got that bass off of ebay for $300. I thought it was a steal, it's a very nice bass.

    Not trying to change the subject but see lots of Dean basses for sale in my neighborhood. They do seem to sound good but are they good enough to replace a Good sounding Fender?

  5. I love my cheap Dean, and would take it over a MIM jazz any day. The two sound quite different, so it depends what you like. You should deffinately give one a try though.

    Depends on your definition of cheap. Here is a picture of me playing a 12 that I only payed $299 for, new.:D I don't have a gig pic of me playing my SX, but I have used it on a few gigs.

    I don't define Dean basses as cheap. I just don't know anyone that plays anything but Fender in my neighborhood.

    The Deans I have played have always sounded ok for the cheap amps they were plugged into at the time. OH I own a Dean Acoustic 6 string it is one decent acoustic guitar. I haven't played guitar since changing to the bass a year ago. Love the bass.

    I think next time I play one I will carry my Fender in play it on the same amp and see which I prefer.

    Thanks I will leave this thread alone now.

  8. Mine was cheap. It's an Edge 1 - $130 on ebay. Bam! :)

    To prevent straying off topic too much, here's a picture of my friend playing it with the band he was in with my brother.
