This guitar obviousley is a heavy metal guitar considering the shape, finish, and the single fact that its a dimebag darell guitar. its sounds great with any metal. I myself play a lot of prieast and Megadeth and sabbath but i also play a lot of creednce and other classic rock and blues and it still sound beatiful. But don't get me wrong, playing elvis on a dimebag guitar is gonna look kinda wierd.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a perfect match for any form of metal. I've been playing for roughly a year and 7 or 8 months. I play this guitar with a Crate gx-40 amp( which is also a wonderful amp I got used for $50) and a Boss metal zone mt2 pedal(great pedal by the way) and ocasionally I use the DigiTech RP150(which I also made a review for). If this thing was stolen for sure I would by another. I love everything about it the Floyd Rose, the shape, the pick ups, the sound quality, and everything else. Nothing a bout this guitar is hateable but it is heavier than most guitars. Compared to my old Silvertone piece of shit, this thing would be like the globetrotters verse the last place 5 year old teamn in russia. This guitar deservas an A+++. Good work Dean. Two wings up.

I can't tell you anything a bout this because I've only had this guitar for about 3 days but so far so good. I'm sure it will last.you always need a backup at a gig but you most likely wouldn't use it. The finish is on their pretty thick. I think it has like some glaze or something over it so it shouldn't be coming off.

No flaws what so ever. Everything is on the right way however the pickuos are a little shAKEY BUT aren't they all. Aldo at the ends of the pickups are these black stickers... don't remove them. I made that mistake. it's not gonna Hurt to much if you do but I think they are ther to protect the dust from going into rhe edge of the pickup otherwise alls good in the hood.

I'd give this a 1000 if I could but I cant. Not sure exactly were it was made. It says us in one spot and korea in another. 22 fret if I'm correct. It has this insane graphic of fire. It's a solid body guitar. Rosewood fretboard I think? It's an ml body(the one that looks like a big X. Now heres where it gets gnarly. Floyd Rose bridge with a locking tremelo. Grover tuners. Seymore duncan pickups. It's got a volume knob, two ton knobs, and a 3 way selector. This guitar came with a hard cased bag two sets of strings, and a 12 pack of tortex picks.
