Comments about Dean AXS Performer Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I am just a guy who likes to play guitar at home. I haven't owned an acoustic guitar in a very long time, as in the past several years I prefer to play with electrics and like using effects.
I chose this guitar because I was simply looking for something around the 200 range. Now, I wanted something that was cheap but didn't sound cheap, so I was a bit wary of buying this Dean, but the aesthetics had me hooked. (Everyone I show this to immediately comments on the white finish!). So I took a chance on this anyway because its one of the few acoustics to come in white.
I was pleasantly surprised by this guitar. First of all, this guitar DOES come with an onboard tuner! Maybe the model was updated and MF just has old photos and info here?
The fit and finish is pretty nice really. Didn't find any blemishes or scratches... have a TINY little nick on the headstock (which is obviously form the manufacturer, not MF), but unnoticeable and not a bother.
The neck feels pretty good! For some reason, after so many years of just noodling with electric guitars, I thought I'd have to work on adjusting to an acoustic, but this neck plays pretty fast, and the string height is pretty dang good.
The frets are finished well (not a single sharp one anywhere), and I tested out the acoustic pickup and thought that sounded pretty great too. The tuners seems to stay in tune well so far. The low E tuner started to get a bit 'muddy' to turn once the tension was taught.
The sound though... initially the guitar really had a harsh tone to it. Too bright, like what cheap acoustics sound like. It started to soften a bit after I had tuned the guitar hours ago, but still harsh, cheap sounding. I had ordered a set of Martin MM12 Retro Light strings & decided I would throw them on... and WOW! What a difference the strings make! Much warmer, pretty decent body to it. Great for strumming. I really am glad I bought this guitar. Yes its cheap, but looks cool and has a great sound to it.
