    I played an Edge 6 recently, and I thought it sounded pretty good. I've played them several times, and have always been favorably impressed. I have not played the NS2000Q6. The construction and electronics are pretty similar, with a couple of differences. The Edge has a five-piece neck, which I like, and the Spector has an EMG preamp. Both are basswood with quilt tops. I think the Spector has wider string spacing, but I'm not sure. In price, they're pretty close. So. Which would you recommend, and why?
  2. ...but I'm very pleased with my Spector instrument. Not that that bit of unformation helps you any, but I think that most people agree that Spector axes are good, even at low quality models.

    My friend has a Dean, but I don't know what he thinks of it.

    My point? Listen to the other guys.

    I looked at both for over a year (5, not 6). The spector has better electronics. It's a close race, bot I say Spector
  4. I don't know, that 5 piece neck is pretty awesome, especially on a 6er. you can always upgrade the electronics.
    but I love Deans, so...

    OK, but why?
