The Razorbacik DB suits metal and pretty much any other syle of music very well. I play it with a Fender Deluxe 900 amp with a Boss metalcore distortion pedal. This guitar sounds amazing, not only with distortion but also with a clean tone witch makes it good for playing more than just metal.
Overall Impression — 9
Overall this is a great guitar especially if your playing metal music. Still though, if this guitar got lost or stolen I probably wouldn't buy it again.When I was looking at new guitars (After purchasing this one) I found a few guitars that are better than this one around it's price range, but if you're a fan of the Razorback and can't afford the more expensive ones this is the guitar for you.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I know for a fact that I wouldn't need a backup for this guitar if I played with it at a gig. I've beaten the living crap out of this thing and it still works just the same as when I bought it. I won't have to buy a new guitar for a long time that's for sure.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
This guitar was put together very well.The pickups aren't adjusted perfectly, but it's good enough for it's price range. The only problem I've had with it is that when I'm playing in drop B or drop C it tends to go out of tuning easily, other than that it's a great guitar.

Back in 2007, Dean Guitars decided to make a Razorback with different and lower quality equipment that is aimed for people Who feel the Razorback is overpriced but still want the quality and design of the U.S. Razorback. Unlike it's higher priced predecessers it's neck and body is made of maple instead of mahogany, it has no liscenced Floyd Rose or tremolo, it has a bolt-on neck instead of set-in construction, and it has Dean pickups instead of EMG or Seymor Duncan and DiMarzio. Just like most guitars it comes with volume and tone control knobs, a pickup Switch (3-way), and a case to put it in (lite-leer).
