It is often said the "beauty is skin deep". The Dean Edge Bass is clearly the exception to the rule! While beauty was the inspiration of the Dean Edge, we put every bit of our 20 plus years of design experience into thesemodels. We started with a body styled and contoured for comfort and the chose basswood to make them lighter. The maple necks were profiled to be faster and sleeker than virtually all other. We designed a "uniquely Dean" custom neck joint and heel along with our asymmetrical 4 bolt pattern creating uninterrupted access all the way up the two octave neck.
