The Dean Edge 1 5-String Electric Bass reflects every bit of Dean's 20-plus years of experience in designing bass guitars. It has a light basswood body that is styled and contoured for comfort. The 34" scale maple neck is profiled to be fast playing and sleek feeling. A custom design neck joint and heel along with an asymmetrical 4-bolt pattern creates uninterrupted access all the way up the 2-octave rosewood fretboard. Soapbar pickups deliver a clean low-end that cuts through the thickest mix. Cosmetic touches include chrome hardware, abalone dot fingerboard markers, and a deep gloss finish on this eminently playable electric bass.
