    I'm wondering what a good price would be on a Dean Edge Q 5. I just played one at a local music store for about $370 and was wondering if that would be a good buy.

    I paid about $400 for my 5 string fretless Edge 5 on December 31, 1999. I think that's a great price for the quilt top version. I think the frertless may be a little more expensive than the standard just because they make less of them (like a lefty).

    For that price you won't find a better 5 string bass IMO.

    BTW, almost three years later I'm still tickled with the Edge. The neck needs a tweak every now and then but the bass continues to please me with its sound, feel, and appearance. A definite keeper. It is my most played bass, despite being the second cheapest (out of six).

    If oyu like how it feels in a music store wait till you get a new set of strings and a set-up. Wow! I recommend Fender 5 string Nickels.
