hey first off i have read the reviews on UG and its not much help. All the reviews seem to be nearly 10 out of 10 for everything. Anyways has anyone played this guitar as im looking for a metal guitar but i dont want to be paying for a piece o crap just because it has dime's name on it. Im looking at getting either this or a jackson js30rr or king v.

I dunno, but bear in mind that the only people who'll have reviewed it will be Dime fanboys, some of whom may never have even touched said guitar.

Having said that, general concensus is that the Washburn models are superior to the Deans.

Don't buy that. Its a terrible low-end model. What's your budget?

IDK about the dime 332, but my friend has the dime32 (idk what the difference is)

So i'll go ahead assuming they're pretty similiar.
Neck is a little chunky. You can shred, but IMO its more of a rhythm guitar.
Stock pickups are decent. Not potted though so they squeal. Normalish output. I'm not sure how to describe the sound but IMO its chunky but bright.
I don't like the tuno-matic style bridge because I find it hard to palm-mute on but you get used to it.
Frets are nice and big but thats mainly because it has only 22frets and I usually play 24.
Nice action.
Body is well built and will handle a lot of punishment. However, it is huge and you gotta take care about the lower bouts.
I've developed a complex where everytime I hear a Lamb of God song, I burst out laughing

For the money you'll get a bit more mileage out of this.

I like the tone of the Black Gold V a bit better, but this wasn't bad and lower price.
