  1. I am really done with Dean making tonnes of cash off the names of dead artists and then putting out ugly ill conceived and terribly made basses branded with said artists name.

  2. Truly, this bass is the answer to the question that nobody asked.

  3. The tuning pegs are hideous and the rest? Eh, nothing special.

  4. Okay, let’s try to post this way:
    JAE has once again rolled over in his grave.

  5. This is truly a far cry away from the Alembic basses that he actually played.

  6. Dean should be ashamed of themselves. What a load of bullshit this is.

  7. Just threw up a little in my mouth.
