The Dean Vendetta Series
With four models to make a choice from, the Vendettas have string-through-body design, classic Dean V Ferrule pattern, dual Humbuckers, a 25.5-inch scale, and solid mahogany bodies with a maple neck. The Vendetta 1.0 and 2.0 are bolt-on models with black hardware. The 2.0 model features a solid flame maple top. The Vendetta 3.0 and 4.0 sport neck-through construction with the Pearl Evil Eye inlay running the length of the fretboard. The 4.0 version has a beautiful quilted maple top and is to be had in an all too popular “Tiger Eye” finish.
Paulownia is an an increasing number of popular substitute for mahogany in more affordable guitar models. It’s a fast-growing, hearty tree native to Japan and Southeast Asia, and has traditionally been used for Asian string instruments.
As a lightweight, porous body wood, Paulownia is quite very similar to swamp ash in its sonic signature: very resonant, with a number of chime and a nice, tight low-end.
The Vendetta XM uses bolt-on construction, an affordable alternative to set-neck or thru-body designs. The benefit of this design is that if you do have any neck trouble down the line, you’ll be able to easily replace it.
The maple neck features an ultra-playable 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, with classic dot inlays.
Dean Humbucker Pickups
To capture the biting tones of vintage Deans, the company includes two humbuckers. These pickups must provide more than enough bite for modern styles, at the side of a number of low-end and midrange definition. The standard three-way selector allows bridge, neck, or a combination, and volume and tone controls are provided.
Dean Diecast Tuners
Dean’s sealed diecast tuners offer solid tuning and mechanics, for a long lifetime of dependable performance.
A Tune-o-Matic bridge with string-thru body design provides even more sustain, at the side of precise intonation for your tuning preference. The classic v-shaped ferrule pattern adds some nice vintage Dean style.
