These days, finding a Dean in the cheap range isn’t too difficult. The company is still on the mend after a brief hiatus some decades ago. We’re seeing some very remarkable and unusual Dean designs as the company expands its position in the entry-level section of the market. Dean Vendetta XM is an example of a design. This monster has a powerful punch and will go for any rivals who get too close. While it’s unquestionably one of the greatest guitars you can get for around $200, let’s see what else this thing can do.

With a bolt-on neck, Dean humbuckers, Dean diecast tuning machinery, and a Tune-o-Matic bridge, Dean’s Vendetta XM is a good Vendetta alternative for the budget-conscious.

Dean’s choice of tonewood, hardware and pickups for the Vendetta XM produces an intriguing sound. It has a little more sustain overall, but it’s also a little more punchy at the higher frequencies. These humbuckers are more than capable of handling your distortion pedal of choice, and the result will be a pleasing tone. They, like many of their competitors, fall short on the clean tone.

Overall, Dean’s unconventional approach to designing a beginning model is the major reason why Vendetta XM is such a great instrument. They chose a Tune-o-Matic bridge, rare tonewood, and a set of powerful humbuckers, which we adore. This bundle is unquestionably high-quality.

  1. Cameron Fritz

    I got one a few years ago, then another three years ago, and I believe it is the easiest of the 19 guitars I own to play chords on. Get this instrument and save money while still being blown away by how great it plays. I could tell you about a few cheap guitars I’ve bought that are terrible, but this isn’t one of them.

  2. Axel Vega

    It’s ideal for novices. If you get this, though, don’t play any shows. Only use for practice… the tuners are frequently out of tune. It’s tough to get a proper action height with the bridge. Furthermore, the pickups are essentially worthless. The pots and 1/4″ input are also constantly loosening up. Great for practice once again. But keep it off the stage.

    Due to some leftover metal debris, the sides of the frets need additional polishing. Aside from that, this guitar was pleked to perfection. Dean is giving them free since a plek job is more expensive than this guitar! The electronics were flawless.
