I am looking at buying a dean ml CFH and i really like the design and neck and floyd.. but i also am looking at the dean ml FBD and it is the same.. does any1 with either guitar have like advantages of each?
#3
Its not really that great of a guitar for tone and lower levels, you gota crank everything on 10 for it to be worthy really
#4
Yea i got a crappy old dean ml DBD T.. but i put some pretty sik pups in.. but i need the floyd for the dimebag feel :P

Every Dean is worth every penny. I got a razorback and its ****in awesome. The dean CFH is just a little cooler looking than the Far beyond driven one. (Altough FBD was a better album ^^)

Yea man, i saw a two tone razorback and stood back in awe.. soon to be attacked by 3 salesman asking if i wanted to buy :S lol

i dont really think deans are all that good value
they tend to whack dimebags name on everything, give it some cool graphics, maybe an LFR, and raise the price. you can get guitars with the same specs for much less, without dime's name on it

Well what u got in mind? i want a nice body, with mahogany fretboard or similar, with floyd, and sick pups...

What is your budget? Are you in US?
What music styles do you have? I assuming metal...
What amp do you run through?

Check out the Washburn X40PRO. Seymour Duncan's and Schaller trem. However, I think it's got an Alder body...

Or maybe an Ibanez S520EX? ZR trem is top notch, but you have to change out pickups. But you can choose which ones you want

Or even an ESP LTD M-1000. OFR trem and EMG's, pretty much the metal dream.

Um well i am in aus.. and my budget is 2000 aus.. and i am using a shit roland cube 30.. but getting a randall half stack soon as well.. and a pod xt live
#11
^Okay, pretty much disregard my links cus they're in USA.

Try to find the MH-1000 with the OFR, they seem to be pretty neat.
#12
yea i will look into them they look pretty sweet.. but i still want the dean.. maybe it is my love for dime?
#13
if your gonna get an ibanez s, get the s320
its cheaper but it doesnt look as metal.
maybe get an ibanez RG1570 then swap out the pups (although it has a basswood body), or teh 2570E if you dont want to swap the pups (as it has dimarzios as stock, but these might not be really what you want)
or perhaps the best of all, get a shecter C1 FR. it seems to have all that you want
http://www.guitar.com.au/guitars/electric/schecter/id=14.html. mahog body, OFR duncan (desingned though, not really sure how much diff it would make), plus it looks like a metal guitar.

You do realize that your guitar doesn't have a whole lot to do with your tone? You just described a tube amp, which you have to crank to get the best sound; it's not the guitars fault.
#15
Why don't you get a non-Dime Dean. That's what I did and don't regret it. I have a an ML79F its basically the FBD with dean PUPs (Mine's black but you can get it in the trans-braziliaburst or whatever they call it). I love it. Dimebag's name raises the price so much and it just isn't worth it.
Private guitar lessons available in West London, UK with an experienced and qualified tutor. Most subjects/styles covered. PM me for more information.
#16
^Agreed, if I ever got a Dean if wouldn't be a Dime one; they don't make many non-dime MLs though
#17
ive played several dime tributes through a mesa triple rectifier, and i hated the way they sounded. way too trebly, and muddy, i didnt think it could really happen, then i picked up a ibanez RG2550e and it blew the dean away.

i would stay away from them.
and besides, they arent even taht accurate compared to what dime actually used.

No, I wouldn't. They simply exploit his name, they slap it everywhere just to make money out of it. They claim to sell what he used to make kids believe they'll sound like him. It's wrong, immoral, and it reveals quite a lot about the company's mentality: MONEY.

If you get a Dean, get a non-Dime one. But your best bet would probably be a LTD M-1000 or something along those lines.

i have a dean ML79 (it has nothing to do with dime) and it is very good.

its great for the money i payed.
#24
i went with the Tribute because the CFH can lead people to think that your trying to be Dime, and not just influenced by him.

i have an ML on bass, its amazing. Even Thoguh bass and guitar are hardly comparable, theyre guitars are good quality, you can tell it wasnt just slapped together.

yeah but the deans do look better and apparantly he only used washburns because dean went out of buisness for a time
#30
you must of not seen the real washburns, not the cheap ones they are still selling. . .
he still played washburns over dean, if he liked dean so much, he would keep playing them.


and dean went out of business because of their sub par products, and poor managing.

oh right yeah they look ok still not as nice as the deans to me. Yeah you do have a point he could have just played the deans he owned

so what came first washburn or dean cause one of them just copyed the whole design of the ml guitar the headstock too
#32
washburn came first, in the 1800's. . . .


but the washburn ML's are alot nicer than the Dean ML's, much higher build quality, every dean ive played felt like it was going to fall apart on me

I was actually saving up to buy Dime's Washburn signiture when he was killed. Sadly after that the price sky rocketed and now they're practically impossible to get in the UK.
I've played the Washburn and the Dean CBFH ML and the Washburn is a much better guitar by miles.
