Dean Edge 09

    So, I've been thinking about buying a bass lately..I had one for a while, but had to sell it cause of a pinch at the time.
    But, I've got some moneys, and so far this bass seems like a killer deal. Looked some videos up of people playing it, and they sound pretty good.

    Wondering if this is really a good deal, or is there some other 99$ bass that'd punch this thing out?

    I don't need anything fancy, just something I can plugup and play, and is 4-strings. No made-in-china P-basses/J-basses that are like 75$ on eBay either, those things just seem fishy and feel/sound odd.

    Thanks for your time,

    Ah, yeah..a bit much. Was really hoping for under 130.
    I don't wanna drop that much for something I may not get into, y'know?

    Also, apparently my friend Jacob has a bass he never plays, and might sell it to me. Here's hoping it's good, and he can :D

    I think the dean's are a really good value. If you're looking for a punchy bass, the Edge will give it to you.

    I had an Edge 1, but sold it because the neck was a bit to "chunky" for my taste. Otherwise it was a very nice bass.
  6. Dude, for 100 bucks you can't go wrong with an Edge 09. I started out on one and it was a decent piece of wood. You will outgrow it quick if you are really serious about playing though.

    good luck!
  7. I have it and it sounds and plays pretty nice. It's very punchy, although I like j-style growl better. Neck feels nice as well, although its not really mah thang.
    (got it used for $50, my first and only bass for now)
    +1 about outgrowing. I've been playing for 6 months and am saving up for my second bass.

    You have to start somewhere. If you like it, get it.

    My first bass was a Washburn and it was good to me. Ibanez, Yamaha, Squire, and SX all make solid entry-level instruments.

    Try checking your local craig's list and see if you can't find a deal on something used. You could probably get a bass and an amp for the same price as just a bass. Plus with the starter stuff you see a lot of the played it twice and lost interest situations where the gear is basically new but with a steep discount.

    Good luck and happy hunting :bassist:

    Aah cool, my local shops are all pretty over-priced sadly and none have the 09 |:

    And there's a Pbass on craigslist for about 250, that's it. D:

    I'll probably order the 09 somehow, might be a while as mums card is kinda screwy lol

    Hey guys,

    Old bump, but I was wondering if anyone wanted to share their thoughts on this bass 4 years later. The thing I'm most curious about is what the neck width and depth is like. Is it more P bass or J bass? Or all dinky, tiny, flat entry Ibanez style?

    Any thoughts are appreciated.
