OVERVIEW

A starter bass that will give you an edge.

The Dean Edge 1 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.

Case sold separately.

I have been playing bass for 8 years, but I only ever played one of my brothers' basses. But seeing as both of them moved out, I needed to get my own for my band. I wanted something inexpensive so I could get it quickly, but I didn't want a basic beginner's bass. I've played Dean's Edge 9's before and was pleased, but thought there should be a little more there. I found this little beauty and thought it would be worth it. This bass can definitely be used as a beginners bass, but it will also last through intermediate stages too.

It has a great bright tone, but also gives great rumble. There are some buzzing frets, but nothing too extreme.

I've had this bass for a few months now, and I'm not planning on upgrading soon. Though in the future I would like something more professional.

The amber finish is gorgeous. This bass has great stage presence. And it's surprisingly light weight for a bass, though I would still like to get a strap pad for it seeing as it does hurt my shoulder after a while.

The only problem I've encountered is the bottom strap button. The hole stripped, but that was easily fixed with a broken tooth pick and wood glue. I'm planning on investing in strap locks anyway so nothing bad happens while I bounce around the stage.

Bought this beautiful bass for my son to practice. He is a beginner player and hasn't clocked many hours on this instrument. It still looks brand new. Purchased in May 2015, but by November the inside wiring broke. The bass wouldn't produce any sound. We decided to have the wire soldered back together so he could keep playing. Unfortunately, that only lasted a short time and the wiring is broke again. The neck has been adjusted twice and the input jack has been loose pretty much the whole time. I understand little things that like that happen, but out of all the different name brand instruments we own, this is the only one that isn't producing sound. I have attempted to contact Dean guitars for weeks and I cannot get any help. Very disappointed with Dean guitars. To think...A young musician who is only getting starting will no longer buy this brand. Sounds like Dean guitars just lost money!

Dean Edge 01

By Bobby Scott

from Wisconsin

Comments about Dean Edge 1 Electric Bass Guitar:

Limited budget. I played for years in local variety bands. I got this Bass as a backup, but ended up using it for 2 live shows now through an Acoustic 100 amp. It needs a little pickup adjusting for sound and you may want to set the neck a bit, but it plays nice and I can't argue with the price. My other Dean Edge I had for 5 years and it still plays well.

Comments about Dean Edge 1 Electric Bass Guitar:

Perfect
First of all, this is my first bass guitar. I have been a guitar player for over 25 years. I am very subjective with instruments, but I have to say, I am impressed with this bass. The fit and finish is perfect. The playability is fantastic. I recieved the bass in perfect condition and was wowed when I unboxed it. Beyond the beauty, I tuned it up and it played extremely well. For the price, I can't see how this bass could be beat. I give it a 10.

    Comments about Dean Edge 1 Electric Bass Guitar:

    I have been playing for over 30 years and needed a bass fast but was low on cash. I received it today and I am very happy with it. I had no problems with fret buzz or any lose parts whatsoever. I can say that it has very good tone once you use the pickup volume knobs to find the sweet spot. It has great tone and I have already recorded a few songs with it.

    For the price you cant beat this bass and it sounds better than a lot of other basses I have owned.

      Comments about Dean Edge 1 Electric Bass Guitar:

      I am extremely impressed with this bass. First, it's just beautiful. It has a glass-like finish on body and back of neck. Dean constructed a multi-piece body with nice grain, and the amber stain works well. It has an upgraded bridge, compared to the usual cheap "vintage" type. The 24 frets are nicely finished and the neck only needed a slight truss rod adjust to attain straight. The neck is slim and fast, like a nice J-bass. The pickups sound good enough and there isn't a lot of line noise. The bass is rather light, but feels solid and is well balanced. This bass is just an unexpected joy to play. I would actually use this bass on a gig. Dean did a great job!

      Just a note in case you are trying to decide between this and the Dean Edge 09: I also bought an 09, and it's also an unexpectedly nice bass. The 09 has a satin finish on the neck, which I usually prefer, but the high gloss of the 1 doesn't detract from playability. The 09 only has 1 pickup, so the 1 has a greater range of sounds. The 09 only has 22 frets instead of 24. The 09 also has a "vintage" bridge instead of the 1's upgraded. While I like the 09, I would recommend the 1.
