    They're inanimate objects. So, no.

    Play before you pay.

    Only thing that might hinder a bass from being slapped is where the neck pick up is located. Basses with pick ups right at the end of the neck can make slapping very difficult, but still not impossible.

    I have a Dean Edge Pro that I love. I can't slap worth a crap on any of my 34 basses so I couldn't tell you.
    Here's a bassist slapping on a Dean Edge 10 string.

    And Davie504 doing all kinds of crazy stuff on a Rhapsody 12.

    Granted, these are not Dean Edge basses, but Dean of another flavor.....
    Best to try 'em out first. The closer the neck pickup is to the neck the more it interferes with slap.
