From the Manufacturer
Here's a versatile acoustic-electric bass from Dean. It's perfect for a beginner looking to enjoy some acoustic, living-room jams, but still features a Dean preamp for plugging into your favorite bass amp or recording gear. The EAB features a spruce top, mahogany body, rosewood bridge and fretboard, pearl dot inlays, and legendary Dean construction and playability, at an affordable price.
EAB Bass Specs
Built-in Dean passive preamp with Tone and Volume controls
Celluloid rosette and binding complete the look.
Mahogany Body With Spruce Top
The Mahogany/Spruce combo is a pretty common choice in acoustic tonewoods, whether for basses or guitars. Mahogany boasts a wide dynamic range, perfect for ampifying your nuance and still sounding good when you lay into it.
The spruce accentuates the bass and treble end of things. It's all finished up in a classic black glossy finish, that shows you mean business.
34-Inch Mahogany Neck
The EAB features a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, and classic pearl dot inlays. It boasts a rosewood bridge to match, with a contemporary "sliver" shape that's all Dean.
Celluloid Binding and Rosette
Speaking of looks, the EAB has plenty, enhanced by the celluloid rosette and body binding.
Dean diecast tuners complete the hardware ensemble, ensuring you stay in tune even when you're plugged in and rocking out.
Dean Passive Preamp
The EAB sounds great on its own, but sometimes you want to turn things up a bit (or plug into an audio interface for recording, perhaps).
The onboard Dean preamp offers basic volume and tone controls to dial in just the sound you need.

Good for the price.
This bass is good for the price. I needed an acoustic to lug around, and play in odd places. My electric is nice and easier to play, but not so mobile. The strings are not bronze and will need to be replaced right away; because bronze is the correct strings to put on an acoustic bass. Also the strings that come with the bass gives it a lot of buzz in the sound. Also, it will not come calibrated; the neck will have to be adjusted with the allen wrench provided with the guitar. Also the frets are some what big which give the bass some slight buzz when the strings are not pressed down just right. The good news is that for the price it is a good deal. It is a full size bass, the sounds carries very well, and resonates a deep loud sound. I have been playing it in my band practices, when we play unplugged. There are two acoustic six string guitars; my bass is not over powered by the others at all. It is really nice for campouts also. It will need some mods to be up to par for a serious musician, but it is very playable for a pro or novice after it is fixed up. If you are a beginner; get it you can lug it around, play it anywhere, and you will learn faster than with an electric. If you are a seasoned bass player it will work if you want a cheap bass to carry around and play in strange places for fun get it. However, if you want it to play on stage spend the extra money and get a nicer acoustic.

This bass is amazing, Its very well made and well worth the price!!Its sound is so prominent with its deep tones you wont need an amplifier. The picture does not show its true beauty. You have to see it to believe it.I have the black one and i love it.
