Extremely light guitar with clear sound

Patrick T., 09.10.2009
The Dean Vendetta XM (thanks to the Paulownia Body) is a very light guitar. And with sea my easy, I mean really very easily. My just weighs 2.3 kg on the scales. Matt black heavy metal look, a dark rosewood fingerboard and black hardware make the guitar almost completely dark.

The fingerboard is very thin and generous cutaways allow all 24 frets to be played without any problems. Unfortunately, at the lower end, it sometimes screeches, you have to seal the wood a bit.

Two buttons on the lower right side control once Tone and once Volume. The two buttons were pretty loose, but with a bit of seconds glue, this problem was fixed within seconds. The tone button is very sensitive, dH in the lower limit position the sound is dull and without a bit of height. If you now turn the knob up just a bit, the sound is suddenly full again. It is therefore hard to find a mediation. A 3-way switch controls the selection of 2 existing humbuckers: either just bridge, bridge neck or neck only.

The guitar is strung with D'addario strings, which fit well with this guitar and give it an incredible sustain. The tuning mechanisms keep the strings tuned for a long period of time.

The sound of the two humbuckers is basically very different. The neck humbucker is very bass-accented, very suitable for the cleane game, the bridge humbucker has a very snappy and cracking sound and is perfect for the game with heavy distortion. When you combine both humbuckers with the 3-way switch in the middle position, the neck humbucker dominates with the bassy sound.

The processing was moderate. The one or the other beetle had to be soldered and the buttons had to be glued (sO). All in all: great!

I bought the Vendetta XM CBK 6 months ago, to begin guitar.
Being novice with musical instruments, I would not allow an in-depth analysis of the sound quality of the guitar (which suits me very well), on the other hand I have some criticisms to make him side manufacturing ...
All the welds of the wires are too weak and after 3 months of daily use, I had to open it to resoulder the wire of the jack and then when I saw the head of the other welds I have everything Redone. The female jack is unscrewing (which makes the play and let loose the solder) I had to add a washer to lock the nut.
The microphone switch only works when it feels like it, the guitar sometimes does not sound when I change position.
I suspect the tone knob does not work, I hear no variation of the sound despite a full rotation of the potentiometer. (May be due to my lack of practice or amp, but I doubt it)

In the end I'm happy with this guitar! I am a handyman and it is with pleasure that I make welds in a new trick, but I understand that others do not want to have to suffer such disappointments with their product. It is a "cheap" guitar, I did not expect it to be perfect, it is not, but it suits me, I like the sound it gives, I like its look and his price. When I learned to play better, I would buy a better quality and I will thoroughly customize this Vendetta XM CBK for the trip.
TL; DR
Good guitar if you are a minimum handyman.
