I'm in love with this thing. First of all, know that this has a C-shaped neck, like the Far Beyond Driven model. The Dean from Hell has a more V-shaped neck. After playing both, I prefer the C-shaped neck. I recommend trying both out to see which you're most comfortable with. For me, the neck is lightning fast. My playing improved dramatically after getting this baby. Mine came with great low action and the Floyd was setup great, parallel with the body. Speaking of which, the liscensed Floyd is great. I've had no problems with mine and if it's setup correctly it will stay in tune. For those of you who've never had a Floyd tremolo before, you should know that it's a real chore changing the strings and it's more difficult palm muting because of the give of the floating bridge.Yes it is built in Korea, but Dean runs a tight ship with good quality control and this is a well-built, high quality instrument. For the money, this guitar is hard to beat. I love the Dimebucker, too. After playing the D-o-F and the D-F-H back to back, there was minimal difference between the Dimebucker and the Bill Lawrence. Dime did use the Dimebucker in concert towards the end. It's just mean and perfect for metal. It gives a nice full grunting tone. The neck pickup is a standard Dean pickup so I wasn't expecting much, but I was really surprised at how good it sounded. It has a nice warm, smooth tone that will pick up all the nuances of your leads. I still may end up changing it out for something with some higher output to really pick up tapping techniques. Still, no complaints. Obviously the flames are a matter of taste. I love it. It is printed on, though, and not spray painted. Unless you put your nose right up to it, it looks awesome. This thing is surprisingly light and also body heavy so that the neck is raised, which I prefer. The set neck gives it plenty of sustain.With all of its features, its quality, playability, its tone, and its unique looks, I'd put it against a Gibson that costs more than twice as much any day.

I just waited 2 weeks for this guitar to come in. It's finally here and wow am I disappointed. The flame job in the picture is not as detailed as it might look. It looks like all Dean did was take a stencil and a can of spray paint to it. The Sound is great but if you are buying it for the looks forget it. It is made in Korea and the quality of this guitar just plain sucks. I'm sending it back for a Real guitar a LES PAUL because with that I have no question on the quality of craftsmanship.

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    I never really cared to buy a guitar that had somebody elses name on it but I am glad that I did. I have always been more of an Ibanez guy but I have to say Dean made me come around and love their products as well. Neck is smooth and thin, frets leveled nicely, the licenced my Floyd Rose actually works really well and staying in tun remarkably. For the size of the guitar I expected it to be a little heavier but it's about medium weight, which for me is just fine. Dimebucker is brutal and the Dime Time neck pup is great for soloing.

    From just a tribute to a favorite player!!!!

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    I shred and the shop owner set it up in drop D for me. I have tweaked the tunning once in 8 months. I will be cremated with this guitar! Now it's Dean and BC Rich for me as BC Rich finally kicked it up a notch lately and the Gunslinger I got beats my custom Jackson! I couldn't believe it. My Dean kinda out does them both in some areas. BUY THIS GUITAR! Buy any Dean for that matter. my next axe is going to be the Dean V with bolt on neck. Even that guitar smokes.
    I moved to this small town in Kansas that had a music shop that had very little in selection, but hanging on the wall was the Dime O Flame. I always wanted the Dime Bolt or CFH model, but this one sang to me before I even touched it. You know the features already. The best features are the fact it's one heavey chunk of mahogony, set neck and it has a Dime Bucker. Nuff said
    It was pre owned, but not played much. Coulndn't find a flaw at all. I can care less about the finish, but it's an attention grabber.
    Does $325 out the door sound like a value? YES!!!

    DO NOT buy ANY Dime models!!!

    By PerlmanLegend992

    from Brooklyn, NY

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    I have searced quite a while for a good Dime model. Each one of them i tried out just was not satisfying to me, the floyd rose never stays in tune, the action sucks, etc. But this particular model I felt there was some hope for. Unfortunately it turned out to be the worst Dime model I have ever layed my hands on. I give up already with these guitars!!!! There is just no good Dime models out there!!!!

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    Ok first of all, just because it has bime's name on doesnt mean your going to sound just like him.now if you can get past that, its a great guitar.I love it.Killer looks, great tone and even greater price tag.Love the lic floyd,dive bomb and squill all day.And the pic doesnt do it justice, its way cooler in person.So if you want a great guitar, at a even greater price, this is the guitar for you.

    Let the Chaos Reign!

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    Got this guitar when it first came out. Now, I'll never have to buy another guitar - EVER!!! Love this thing to death, I want to be buried with it! One thing - ALL Deans need a string tree ($4 part) between the nut and the tuners. Had to put one on my ML79 fixed-bridge too. That cures the slight up-tuning when you tighten the locking nut. Other than that - best guitar EVER!!!

    I Got my Wings

    By Rayzor302

    from Tumwater, WA

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    This was my first Dean guitar and I couldn't be happier. I got it 2 years ago in a trade/pay for a modified LTD explorer and didn't look back...The Floyd works good with no tuning issues once I got use to it. Graphics are good even though it's a digital sticker...Haven't changed a thing since I got it except strings and the action...Dimebucker is just what I need and the neck pup is good for clean. Neck is comfortable no matter where/how my hand is placed...Easy to sit with or stand (good balance) I like this guitar so much i'm getting another on just like it...the ML Shadow, so i can't wait.

    Get Your Wings...

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar; I had to sell my first one to buy grocieries last year during hard economic times and always wanted to get it back. I am very impressed with Dean and the quality of their "low-end" guitars. I am definitely a Dean only man now. The only thing I plan on changing is the pickups; sorry, but I'm an active p/u fan...gonna put an EMG 60 (Ivory) in the neck and an EMG 81 (Ivory) in the bridge. However, if you like passive p/u's the dimebucker is great (that goes without saying), but also the neck p/u (whatever it is...Dean or otherwise) isn't bad for a stock p/u.

    dime o flame

    By getyourwings99

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    wow is all i gotta say about this guitar. it just gets better and better when i play it. almost had this beauty a year and it kicks butt! almost been playin guitar for 3 years and now im getting to the point where i want my own look,own sounds etc. so i changed this guitar just a lil bit. i changed the p'ups to dimarzio's. the only disapointment i got from the pickups part from this guitar is that the dimebucker IS NOT A REAL SEYMOUR DUNCAN. all seymour duncan p'ups have the seymour duncan logo, and a "made in america" logo. the dimebucker in my guitar had none of that and just said "seymour duncan research" in small letters, so that was a disappointment. anyway, i put an OFR in it( any of you guys that wanna put an OFR in this guitar, DO IT! this guitar's recess is perfect for it!) and that made it even better. my last change on it was that i had to change the headstock. i love dime and he will always be my inspiration and in my heart, but i dont want the "dime" on the headstock anymore, so i painted it over with black paint, and left the Dean logo on it. after i regretted that and got over it, this guitar truly came out beautiful. this guitars neck is butter. i had to clean it with lemon oil,adjust the action and all that good stuff,but it was worth it in the end. the body is just wicked!(in my opinion the best guitar shape ever).with my new p'ups, it sounds AWESOME. BUT... if your a shy person, i wouldnt get this guitar cause it sticks out like a sore thumb in public. in my opinion, a very light guitar (coming from someone that weighs 115 pounds),and just an awesome guitar. this guitar will always be the first guitar that i pick up to practice with and it will forever be my number 1.thanks for reading.R.I.P. "Dimebag" Darrell Lance Abbott 1966-2004 always thinkin' of ya bro.

    The Guitar of Shredding

    By VanillaG20

    from Austin, TX

    Comments about Dean Dime-O-Flame Electric Guitar:

    I debated whether or not to get this or the DFH... so I got both. Never the less this one is not put down. I did change the pick-up to a L-500XL the the DFH, and recommendation flip the Dimebucker so the treble blade is first. The squeels are incredible. Get a lesson on how to tune on a Floyd Rose if you haven't already learned, it can be the difference between love and hate. The neck pick-up is fat and gives good tone for blues solos or Dime solos like "Walk" and "This Love". Buy it, but set it up right before you play... it makes a huge difference.
