i have a dean edge, and i have a friend with a dean metalman. i love my edge, it has one of the smoothest tones ever, but that could be because of the active pickups in mine. the neck is not too big, but not tiny. the metalman, however, is the worst bass i have ever played. ive played first act basses that impressed me more than that metal man. the neck is like the width of my arm, there is only a bridge pickup, which to me makes picking harder because the strings are tighter by the bridge. the pickup is crap anyway.
overall, i will never ever buy a metalman bass or a razorback. if you buy a dean, make it an extremly nice expensive one, but i understand why most people dont want to.
well, my first bass is a kustom kasino bass ive tried to look it up to see the retail price for the hell of it, and i couldnt find it ANYWHERE ive only found the amp, so i need help, how much does anyone think it is? its from the 70's, if that helps any
well, im the friend that got the guitar and me and muster are putting it together the the only split part in it is the head of the neck, but i put wood glue to hold it together temporarily i researched the guitar, and i found out the wood in it is agathis(?) would agathis wood sound good with fender noiseless 51 pickups?
but gibsons and music mans are expensive as ****ttt. my dean is really good, i have a dean edge with bartolini actives in it. thats the only one i would recommend because my friend has a metalman, it sucks horribly =/
