Dean E09M Edge Mahogany Electric Bass Guitar – Natural

  • 34-inch maple neck with rosewood fretboard and abalone dot inlays
  • Dean passive soapbar pickup with volume and treble controls
  • Dean vintage-style bridge with adjustable intonation
  • Diecast Dean tuners
  • Basswood body and natural satin finish

It is often said the “beauty is skin deep,” but the Dean Edge Bass is clearly and exception. While beauty was the inspiration, we put every bit of our 20-plus years of design experience into these models. We started with a body styled and contoured for comfort, and to make them lighter we used choice basswood. The maple necks were profiled to be faster and sleeker than virtually all others. We designed a “uniquely Dean” custom neck joint and heel along with our asymmetrical four-bolt pattern, cr

    I’ve been learning to play bass with this model for about a year and a half, and I enjoy it thoroughly. It’s lighter than some instruments, but still has enough mass that it has a good tone. The neck is maybe not as slender as some fancier, faster basses, but it’s still quite comfortable. It stays in tune well, and I’ve never had any troubles with the knobs or electronics.

    With only a single pickup, and just knobs for volume and treble, you don’t have much flexibility in sound. If you’re just learning or playing for fun, this isn’t much of an issue. The bass sounds great for a variety of jazz, blues and rock. One person I play with thinks the tone from this bass is nicer than one of his that cost about eight times as much.

    A couple of other thoughts… You’ll want to find a local guitar store to help you make adjustments periodically (and perhaps with initial setup), or learn to do it yourself. I use a Behringer practice amp, and it’s partially responsible for the good tone that I seem to get. Finally, I rarely use a pick – if that’s more your style, the lack of a pick guard might be an issue for you.

    At first, when I took it out of the packaging and plugged it in……DOA! No sound at all. Took it to a guitar shop, they opened the panel in the back and found out that there was some shoddy soldering and defective mini-pots that had a bad connection. They did some minor soldering and adjustments and it works fine now. The guy at the shop who fixed it said that Dean guitars tended to have this issue. I had bad luck and got a lemon. Luckily, it was an easy fix and he didn’t charge me.

    Also, the strings were too low to the fret board(low action). When you plucked the strings, it would rattle against the frets. They adjusted the neck, so that the strings don’t rattle any more. I haven’t learned how to do this myself yet.

    When buying any guitar online, it’s a crap shoot. When you buy a guitar at a shop or online, you’ll inevitably have to bring it in to a shop for adjustments anyway, if you don’t know how to do it yourself.

    Pros:
    – Once working, bass sounds great. Nice tone control from clean bass sound to a bit of “growl” and everything in between
    – Nice looking. Mahogany finish has a distinctive look that grows on you. I admit, I was a bit skeptical from the pictures on Amazon, but seeing it firsthand, it is a beautiful guitar.

    Cons:
    – Poor quality control at Dean factory. Possibility you could get what I got, and have to do some fixing.
    – Only one passive pickup. If you want another pickup, or some active pickups, you’ll have to pay more.

    Not a bad little Bass, March 8, 2013

    I purchased this bass about a year ago because I wanted a second bass. I read a number of reviews on this bass and decided to give it a try. I took it to my local music and played it through a Peavy and had the stores guitar tech to play it as well, he agreed that it exceeded his expectation and was a decent little bass for the price. He thought while the strings were this bass weakest link, it was not bad. It was set up perfectly and he suggested that I not change the strings until I had too. I am very pleased with my purchase.
