    They are excellent basses. I used to have an Edge 5 fretless and it was a great bass.

    What kind of music played doesn't really affect the qualty of an instrument IMO. I used it for mostly church music and acoustic trio, it was great in everything I tried it in.

    How's this compared to a Peavey Grind NTB 6?

    I have no experience with the Q6 but my instructor gets to play a lot of different basses because he usually does setup's for all of his 35 students. He gave really good ratings for the Q6 and especially the Grind. His quote was "great basses for the money". :hyper: I heard a bassist at a local music store pickup a Grind 6 and was really impressed by the sound.

    I presently don't have a 6 but these 2 are on my list for the next one.

    IMO, I've only played them in a store, they're both just as good. It's just a question of which you like better personally.

    Ok.
    I like bolt-on six-strings better than neck-through,
    so I think the Dean will be best for me.

    Other bolt-on sixers in that price-range?

    I had a Edge Q6 that I turned into a fretless. It was a very nicely built and solid bass. Had no issues with it. Decent sound with the stock electronics. Ends up it was just too many strings for me!
