From the Manufacturer
This mahogany-enhanced monster from Dean features a lightweight basswood body with a mahogany top, finished au natural for serious good looks. Appointments include a Dean vintage bridge, a single Dean soapbar pickup, and a speedy maple neck. It's an affordable axe that's ready for any modern style.
EDGE 09M Specs
Dean passive soapbar pickup with volume and tone controls.
A vintage-style bridge provides precise intonation.
Dean's Edge Series
Sure, beauty is skin deep, but the Dean Edge Bass might be the exception. Dean started with a body styled and contoured for comfort, and made it lighter with basswood construction. The maple necks were profiled to be faster and sleeker than most, and Dean designed a custom neck joint and heel, for uninterrupted access all the way up the two octave neck. The Edge Bass is offered in four, five and six string models. The Edge 09M is the most affordable instrument in the Edge Line.
The Edge 09M features basswood construction, but it's topped off with naturally finished mahogany. The basswood means this axe is lighter than most its size, and the eye-catching mahogany grains give it plenty of class.
34-Inch Maple Neck
The Edge 09M features a speedy maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and classic abalone dot inlays. It's a 22-fret model--this barely matters on some instruments, since access to the high frets is difficult, but a deep cutaway and Dean's custom joint/heel mean you can ring out the high notes when you want.
Dean Passive Pickup
The Edge 09M features a Dean "soapbar" style passive pickup, for smooth low-end, aggressive high-end, and plenty of response to your playing and the tone control. Dial it in no matter your musical style.
Black Dean Hardware
The vintage-style Dean bridge lets you set things up perfectly on the intonation front, and Dean diecast tuners ensure that you'll stay in tune.

Here's the thing: this is an instrument in the beginner's range, and most beginners don't know much about instruments. That's sort of implied in being a beginner. That also means that if something is wrong it can be hard to pinpoint what it is, and what to do about it. Wood moves. It changes with the weather, with the seasons, and it can settle during transport. That means that you might have to set the instrument up, and this is a process that must be repeated every now and then. This goes for most instruments - I used to have a Gibson Thunderbird where I had to adjust the trussrod each season, because everything moved with the change in humidity. It's just the way it is, and it doesn't make an instrument good or bad. (This paragraph is of course meant as an answer to all the negative reviews complaining about fret buzz and similar. Those things are rarely manufacturing errors or due to a problem with the instrument - it is almost always a matter of setup.)
I adjusted the trussrod on mine just a little, and it plays fine. If you're serious about playing bass or guitar, learn about the instruments and learn to set them up to your liking. If you're not interested in that at all, find an expert to help you. (Not everyone who works in a music store is an expert at setting up instruments - it takes practice, and it's worth putting in some time and effort to find someone who is actually good at it.) A piece of advice: if you've never adjusted an instrument before and decide to try, take it just a little at the time. You rarely need to do large adjustments.
I saw some reviews say, "Why not spend more money and get active electronics." If you think that will make you a better bass player you need to think again. If you think a passive bass won't give... I don't know... enough output level I guess, you need to look over the rest of your equipment. Sure, there are big differences between pickups on expensive and cheap basses, but come on, those who have the pleasure to play an arena are likely to bring something completely different, and the sound quality in the end will depend on the PA and the sound technician. If you start with something good you have a better chance to get a good end result, but it's no guarantee. (Active basses are cool and can have a really crisp and nice sound, but trust me - being on stage when the battery in the bass runs out is moderately amusing. If that happens, you're happy to have brought a backup, lol.)
My advice: whether you're just starting out or you've played for a while, this is a fun instrument. If you're looking at basses in this price range you're probably just starting out. Practice a lot. Find people to play with who are better than you are - it forces you to become better too. Find a great drummer - few things are so much fun as playing bass together with a good drummer. Also learn about the whole chain of gadgets and how each influence your sound; you might want to invest in a good compressor pedal. And have fun!
Also, the strings were too low to the fret board(low action). When you plucked the strings, it would rattle against the frets. They adjusted the neck, so that the strings don't rattle any more. I haven't learned how to do this myself yet.
When buying any guitar online, it's a crap shoot. When you buy a guitar at a shop or online, you'll inevitably have to bring it in to a shop for adjustments anyway, if you don't know how to do it yourself.
- Once working, bass sounds great. Nice tone control from clean bass sound to a bit of "growl" and everything in between
- Nice looking. Mahogany finish has a distinctive look that grows on you. I admit, I was a bit skeptical from the pictures on Amazon, but seeing it firsthand, it is a beautiful guitar.
- Poor quality control at Dean factory. Possibility you could get what I got, and have to do some fixing.
- Only one passive pickup. If you want another pickup, or some active pickups, you'll have to pay more.
Very shocked at the quality next to a Fender. Fender still wins in the long run, but this a little beast of bass guitar. I think I'm switching over to a nice quality and low cost bass for a bit. Lighter weight and a nice bright tone.
Now, what color should I choose for my next E09M?
