Dean Introduces Aphex-Enhanced John Entwistle Bass


Dean Guitars and Aphex have teamed up to create the Dean John Entwistle Bass. Two Entwistle signature basses, the Spider and the Hybrid, use the Aphex Exciter/Compressor/Optical Big Bottom circuitry.

The Hybrid is a standard model, while the Spider is a limited edition collectors’ item featuring an active three-band EQ, spider-web inlays, and an angular body design. The Hybrid has a similar body, but with more rounded edges, and includes several upgrades from the standard, such as the bump up to a mahogany top and body from alder, rosewood or ebony fingerboard instead of maple. The Hybrid also uses EMG Lo Z pickups versus the standard’s EMG HZ humbuckers. Learn more at
