A marriage of earthy looks and high-tech 5-string sound.

Quilted maple with a deep, transparent finish, besides being beautiful, always lends a sense of mystery to an instrument. The blending of nature's creativity with that of a luthier who obviously loves the craft never grows tiresome. So it is with Dean's Edge Pro5 5-string Electric Bass. An extra long upper cutaway horn contributes to the look of partnership with nature's asymmetrical beauty, and the gold hardware, dark pickups and gold control knobs finish the look nicely. Top if all off with the Dean Bass Clef inlay at the 12th fret.

Beyond the great looks, the maple and walnut neck-thru construction provides your instrument with great strength and warm, dark, full tone. The 3-band active EQ combined with two soapbar pickups means you'll never be at a loss for ways to tweak your sound to find just the right fit for each style you play.

The Edge Pro5 bass has 24 frets on a medium sized C shape neck that will let you perform smooth running lines with ease, plus allow you to become a little adventurous and try some chording if it strikes your fancy. A convenient flip-open 9V compartment hides around back in case you need to make a quick battery change in the middle of a set.

Comments about Dean Edge Pro5 5-String Bass Guitar:

Other than the heaviness of the bass, I love this bass. Neck is easy to play, sounds great on slides, not to much fret buzz, nice long scale which makes me more flexible. Great buy. I got the Tiger Eye finish, beautiful.

Edge 5 Pro a Solid Product

By Heavy B

from Houston, TX

Comments about Dean Edge Pro5 5-String Bass Guitar:

After setting up the Edge Pro 5 correctly (new strings, truss rod, bridge height and intonation), the bass plays and sounds about as good as good as any other I've played. As with all basses, it has its own distinct character which I would describe as warm in the low mid-range, flat in the upper midrange (1 - 2 kHz) and slightly bright in its high end (> 6 kHz).Construction of the instrument is very good. There were no rattles and the finish is excellent. The strings had a bit of corrosion on them, suggesting age and/or humidity.The initial set of strings were too small in diameter to sit correctly in the nut, allowing buzz even on open string notes. I also suspect that they were not from a common guage set of strings. Putting a full 5-string set of medium guage strings allowed the strings to sit properly in the nut and added just enough tension to allow the neck its natural ramp.Despite my extra work in the setup, I still give this instrument 4.5 overall stars. Setup of an instrument is not really a fault of the product. Moreover, no bass I've ever owned had "my setup" on the first day, whether store bought or mail ordered. That sort of thing takes weeks or even months to achieve.-HB

Dean Edge Pro 5

By NC bassplayer

Comments about Dean Edge Pro5 5-String Bass Guitar:

This is an exceptionally comfortable instrument to play and sounds great. The frets are dressed perfectly and after tweaking it a bit had it set up really well. My particular bass is flame top and has EMG Hi Z pickups. The sounds are perfect for walking a jazz line to funkier stuff. My only complaint is the bridge saddles are suseptable to moving during string changes. Setting the intonation is a breeze though.I have performed long gigs with this bass and have expereinced no fatigue at all.
