I don't know anything about this specific model of the Edge, even country of origin. At the $319 MSRP, it's almost certainly China, and therefore it's of unpredictable QC and probably deficient. $200 is no great price, by Amazon standards. You can beat it if you're set on this thing. Amazon were selling them under $100 a while back.
Some of the Edge bass models were very
nice, but it depends on the contractor and features.
For perspective, I picked up an Edge Q4 Bartolini
from Amazon some time back. $999 MSRP Cor-Tek Korea build, US Bartolini pickups, EMG active tone controls. It was an absolutely flawless build and a remarkably nice bass, great ergonomics. l don't particularly like this type
of bass, but it was a beauty. I paid $132 for it, new, shipped.
Deans are OK, but don't pay real money for them. They have no resale value to speak of.
