    Comments about Dean Playmate Cutaway 5 String Acoustic Electric Bass (Natural):

    This bass has a great tone unplugged, especially for the price, and with some eq tinkering on your amp delivers clean booming licks. The frets are good, the fingerboard comfortable.

    Comments about Dean Playmate Cutaway 5 String Acoustic Electric Bass (Natural):

    This is my followup review to my previous entry about this product. The new electronics from ARTEC is unbelieveable, what a difference in sound![...]The magnetic pickup however is specifically designed for acoustic guitar. It will amplifiy the EAD strings but the B and G strings are slightly more quite than the others however the piezo makes up for the difference in volume. A great buy for the price! Good company to deal with. [...]

    Comments about Dean Playmate Cutaway 5 String Acoustic Electric Bass (Natural):

    Just came off the Fedex truck today, I've been playing with it unplugged, it can certainly keep up with acoustic guitars in a small room, plugged in the STOCK ELECTRONICS ARE HORRIBLE! Its very thin sounding. BUT......Your best bet, Go [...] buy an Artec Preamp system thats active, or even a Fishman if you can swing it. The Piezo is good on this bass, but the preamp lacks, there is no battery inside so the gain volume is no good for amps. SOOOO...For 75 bucks you can throw a 3 band EQ preamp blender with the ability to run on phantom power w/built in XLR/ 1/4 combo jacks, also includes a new soundhole pickup, new piezo pickup (artec model PP-537), and condenser mic.
