ok iv heard good things about the razorback v but first i cant decide weather the regular of the 255 is better because the 255 is much more expensive and has more frets but iv heard the frets displace the pickups so u don't get as good a sound.

my next big concern is the floyd rose because i play in drop C and the other guitarist in my band says that his rose doesn't go well with the low tension. will i have this problem?

finally i just want to know what people think of the guitar. i play in a death metal band and love to shred sow ill the razorback v be right for me?

the Dean Razorback is good for nobody! who ever recommended them to you has been misled. in about a year you will deeply regret buying that guitar!

Try and Ibanez RG
Gear

Epiphone Les paul
Vox ac50cp2
Ibanez s520ex
Squire Jazzbass

This is the key to the answer, which is: yes! The Razorbacks play great and have a very sharp, cutting tone. The regular Razorbacks are a bit warmer sounding than the Razorback Vs, by the way.

If you're a shredder, just keep saving your pennies and get a Jackson USA Soloist or Rhoads.

They look stupid as hell, although beside that they are good.

Funny how most of these posts are from opinionated asses, who have never played one of these guitars before. There's nothing wrong with the Razorback V's. They're the better of the Dean lineup. I would love to get one, granted I could manage to get my hands on one again...

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Razorback V is amazing. I've got it for 11 months. I had before Jackson dkmg, bc rich warlock and Ibanez. Dean has awesome neck and sound. Get v255 - it has 24 frets and better set of pickups than standart Razorback V which has Dimebucker (bridge) and shitty DimeTime (neck).

The V necks aren't loved by everyone (personally I hate them) and I thought the hardware felt cheap. And whoever said that people dislike Dean because they were "apparently" leeching money off Dimebag. It's true. There is no other way to slice it. There are 31 separately sold "Dimebag" related guitars on the Dean site
