Which of those two Deans would you choose? I sold my FBD because it was right handed and I'm a lefty, so I was sick of all the troubles stringing it upside down. I just came to notice they sell a left-handed version of the FBD and the razorback explosion, I know the razorback might have a tad bit better specs, but the FBD is a well known tribute, and might not be seen as much, which would you go for?

They're both horribly overpriced and inextricably linking to a dead man whose corpse has been commercially raped.

Out of those two i'd go with the FBD though; much preferable in every way to any Razorback which are even more overpriced.

Oh, STFU.

FBD was made when he was alive so, don't start. Yes, we know that Dean uses his name a bit so, we don't need to be reminded every minute.


I would use buy FBD ML, BTW.


Another note, will people stop giving Dean cheap shots every minute because they do still make some great guitars but like every guitar company they have a major flaw about them.

No, before he died he had A signature model.

Then he died and all of a sudden there are 33 different "Dime tribute" models and Dean Zelinsky leaves the company because he's "unhappy with the direction it's taking".

Dean are raping Dime's legacy. End of.

Even if that wasn't an issue they're still overpriced and I wouldn't buy one.

I still think Dean guitars are great. I admit they are expensive, but I really like the look and the feel of them, I couldn't imagine the world without ML's, but obviously many of y'all could, lol. I'm glad all the people responded with FBD, thanks, that's all I needed.

Like I said before we all know they are raping the name, we don't need it to be repeated every minute.

I think that people would live if you didn't buy a Dean and anyways, this thread isn't about you, it is about TS. BTW, The FBD MLs are signature guitar which 98% of all signature models are all overpriced because of the name on them.

Get your facts straight because Dean made quite a few signature models for Dime when he was alive.

Dean from Hell CFH
Dime-O-Flame
FBD ML
Dean Dime Shadow M

TS asked for opinions and the post seemed to imply that the connection with Dime had something to do with which one he would choose; I gave my opinion on Dean in general and then even though I dislike Dean guitars in general said which one I'd choose. You jumped down my neck about it so don't go getting all high and mighty.

No sir, I was just correcting you and giving you facts which you sometimes lacked.


I'm sorry if it feel that I gave you the third degree, but you have to understand it gets annoying when people jump on the bandwagon and straight off the bat paint a bad name for a company they never even tried. Example, the UG Line 6 hate days.

No, you weren't; your first post just jumped to the defense of a, quite frankly, indefensible company. I make a point of never speaking on a subject which I know nothing about anyway; I may have been slightly wrong about Dime having 4 signature models before he died but that is absolutely no comparison to 33 anyway (and there are 33, I've counted). Maybe if they were a little more like Krank I'd have more sympathy; they're not profiteering from a dead man.

"I'm sorry if it feel that I gave you the third degree"

I don't know what is not to understand from that post? I'm not really defending the company but I'm defending most of the great Dean guitars that I have play that are getting moshed into this Dean makes crap guitars rap. I didn't deny the fact they are milking his name and what is your point on counting the models? Like I said about 4 times already, I already know they are MILKING HIS NAME.

This was your statement "No, before he died he had A signature model." and I corrected you with the most notable 3 that are on the market that he used when he was alive. I'm not asking for sympathy for Dean. I just want you to not just write them off as they only make **** guitars when they make some great guitars as well.

No single person can change opinions on the Dean company as a whole. If they were insanely great guitars or horrible junk guitars, everybody would know that if that were the case, but in my opinion, every guitar company has some great stuff and some iffy stuff. I've noticed many people get mad that so many people have interest in Dime related stuff, but hell, he's that popular for a damn good reason.

Like most artists his popularity increased exponentially when he died; there's nothing to increase revenue like martyrdom.

The thing is that Dean is the only company that exploit it to this degree; everyone else just has the same custom/signature stuff they did before he died.

Anyway, I'm done with this: I don't like Dean guitars anyway.

Two different necks. You should play both before you make your choice.

FBD is a C neck and the Razorback is a V.
They also feel a bit different when you play sitting down. If you haven't played an ML or Razorback before, then it might take some getting use too.

That works just as well. I'd like to say that there's no point in posting in this thread anymore. I'm going with the FBD, regardless if you love or hate Dean, although I do enjoy reading the flamework of Behemoth XD.

The Washburn Dime's were better than anything Dean is making nowadays if you ask... One piece bodies, great trems, nice pickups, some of them even had the Buzz Feiten system IIRC. I had one that was very well made aside from the so-so finish.

Yeah, just being left-handed totally crushes my range in what is available to me, you know. There are like $399.99 Washburns that are insanely sexy, too bad they are all righty.

Yeah man, I love the FBD. The neck is much better in my opinion, as the V necks are very awkward to get used to. That and the body shape are truly the only differences between the 2 guitars. I would look for a used one maybe, due to the fact that it would be cheaper.
#25
the razorback is uncomfortable but has better sustain. the fbd is for more traditional ml looks, but acess to upper frets when played with a low strap is **** with a capital S
#27
stop putting down deans, people hu slag deans are those hu focus on images on the internet and not from experience. Best guitar ive played was a dime o flame, graphic looked like **** up close but the sound, feel and balls that guitar had was amazing.

Id ask the question, what would i rather have, an ML or a Razorback, prob the ml for me, cause they are extremly comfortable. but either way, they are both gonna look great in your eyes, just go for teh one you want at the time. To put it this way, you wont be dissapointed when you get either in your hands.
