    I'm (finally) going to buy me a new bass!
    And I have come down to two basses.

    Dean Edge Q6
    &
    Dean Sledgehammer 5

    I need some help here.

    Get the Edge. The Sledgehammer is very limited, IMO. The single humbucker is totally in the bridge position and gets no bottom at all.

    I used to own an Edge 5. I'd buy another, it was a great bass. I'm sure the Sledge is nice, too.

    You will have the same bass as me if you buy the Edge Q6. :D
     
  6. IMHO, I prefer the Sledgehammer 5. There's one at my local music shop. here's a link to it on Ebay from my home town with plenty of detailed pics. It plays really well and has a fairly meaty tone.

    The shop is called Grand Central Music and they're all really great guys. I go in there almost every week and they give my bass free setups and stuff like that.
