I played this guitar a few weeks ago at my friends house. It's an awesome guitar for it's price (witch is really low for what your buying.) And it plays metal like there's no tomorrow, the only complaint I have is that the paint scratches fairly easily. Other then that, awesome! I have never in my life played a better guitar!
This guitar is great for both hardcore and clean guitar styles. The bridge dimebucker has great tone and output. The neck humbucker has a great clean and jazzy sound to it. The floyd rose and set neck just add on to the killer guitar looks.
This guitar has an amazind sound plenty of gain and is just amazing. The only reasons I docked it is because the neck pickup isn't that great and its real easy to chip the fins. Be careful with it and make sure you have plenty of room around you when you play. The guitar sounds as good as it looks. Great buy!!!
I went to a local shop and played the Dean Dimebag Razorback Shards guitar. I thought it was going to be heavy and awkward, but it was the lightest electric guitar I have played! The pickups are HOT. The Shards graphic isn't my favorite. When I eventually buy one I?ll be getting the black/yellow two tones. All in all it?s a Great guitar.
The guitar plays awesome. I slightly adjusted the action because it buzzed a bit out of the box. I'm not happy that it was made in china and the licensed floyd rose just ain't quite the real thing. The tone is above average. The neck humbucker sounds good but doesn't have enough output for this type of guitar. It is realy fun to play and looks awesome on stage. You can do anything with a guitar that has wings on it.
what it comes down to is this is a very resonant guitar the notes don't just die thanks to the fact its set neck and a bound fretboard.The guitar pretty much plays itself how well the fretboard was done a bit lower action I did myself and I couldn't put it down. This guitar is for many people I think with either gigantic hands or small hands alike, very light you won't have a sore back when it's time to go back stage. Honestly think of it this way in the end its a fusion of a high end Gibson Flying V and a BC Rich Ironbird.. can't decide get this happy medium in between. I've owned many guitars in my life and this is probably the most complimented guitar and I'd probably miss it if I sold it or whatever.
This is a follow up to an older review for the lifeless and paid reading EVERY review and so on. This is beyond the wow phase we have with every new guitar. The V shaped neck grew on me and eventually I converted my main guitars top frets to a V shape. Say what you want about the pickups the bridge with this choice of wood that dime uses are the only true way to appreciate this guitar so just putting them in an epiphone or any other beginner guitar is a no-no only all mahogany guitars will make it sound the way Dime wanted it. Traction knobs are great and everything else I still like, I still can't believe how light this guitar is compared to my others.
As mentioned before the 3 way selector was replaced and from a professional perspective the paint inside the 3 way selector will interfere causing it to not work perfectly. The thin finish you'll either love or hate this is a work of art so we're more prone to complain about the finish chipping but honestly that's what gives this guitar such a nice sound.. sure they could have went with a natural oil finish or something on it but again for the millionth time the name of the game was creating a guitar similar to Dime's.
This is worth more than a les paul or american fender strat or tele, I'm sure it will hold its value a lot more than the other guitars mentioned. Granted for twice this prce you can get a handcrafted guitar with everything YOU want in your city/state or coutry but this is for the fans of Pantera and damage plan as well as just people after a one of a kind guitar. that will defintely get people looking. Sure the finish will chip but honestly even the most expensive guitars will chip unless you go through extreme precautions. What it comes down to is you bought it to be noticed and rock, I think it does a great job of both.
I love this guitar's sound. I have read reviews where people complained about the Dimebucker, but I am having no problems with it. It sounds hard and well defined through my Mesa boogie amp, the neck pickup on the other hand is a little muddy/tinny for me.For the Floyd Rose, you do not screw it in, you jam it in and it keeps its position pretty well. Its also not that hard to stay in tune unless you are incredibly lazy. It does take more time to string and tune though.The paint on this guitar is very, very thin. The 6 sharp edges are just begging to be hit on a table or chair and be chipped.Besides the few negatives, this guitar is more than worth it if you are after a heavier tone.
This guitar is awesome! It gives you the Right sound for all types of heavier rock and metal. If you want to play music that is very acousticy this guitar is not for you, but if you like the bone wrenching sound of metal this guitar is your answer. I play with a 50 watt Marshall amp so if it sounds terrible on say a fender amp go get a marshall amp. The tremelo arm lets you pull off multi string bends flawlessly.
the price is kind of extreme but this is a work of art, even my mom and a lot of non-guitar players gave me lots of compliments, sure there's no coil tap and me complaining about no name brand neck pickup its what WE can do not the placebo that name brand pickups are better... I highly recommend it, amazing what a decal sprayed on a glossy black guitar will convince us so much.
The ONLY thing missing is a coiltap, I love this licensed floyd rose almost as much as the low profile kind Schaller makes, pops right in and the set up for it is amazing , you do get basic controls but really its a metal guitar our amps do the work for us. I don't personally like the V shaped neck as this is my 16th guitar and its the first guitar with it but it might grow on me.
a perfect finish and everything , mine WAS used but still its frets are in great shape zero ware and very little buzz which is rare.
Grover tuners, a very nice licensed floyd rose with a locking nut.. although I'd probably swap out the neck pickup down the road (keep in mind I haven't plugged it in yet) and it'll be perfect , but again this is a Dimebag signature series its what he used nothing else.
This axe was my graduation present. I can honestly say i have never played a better guitar. My friend has a Gibson SG and this is way faster to play. The pickup choice is perfect. The neck is dark and adds lots of oophm to riffs. The Dimebucker is just insane; ridiculous output and flawless tone. The neck is a really nice, chunky V as opposed to some anorexic ibanez wizard or ESP "Thin U". The floyd, while licensed is perfect and does everything a proper dime signature requires of it. The one thing is the cost. Its pricey, but even in its price range it totally dominates anything else.
This guitar is just the best thing out there. I never will play another fender again!! Although the do make good amps. but yeah the only reason i docked the quality was because when i got it the graphic was peeling up under the tremelo making it crack in other places. got it replaced and it is amazing!!!!
Just got this baby last month, the dimebuckers make pinch harmonics so easily. I'm running through a Line 6 Spider II, and it sounds beautiful. I recommend this guitar to anyone who likes metal.
This guitar is so freakin awesome! The locking Floyd Rose on it makes this guitar scream. It screams so good that it sounds like Pantera themselves when I play it. The shape of it is pretty sick. A little hard to play when sitting down. The neck is fast. The razor inlay is pretty sweet. The gloss finish is nice. I play it through a Crate halfstack with a dunlop Dime crybaby wah. I cannot put it down! If you are into Pantera then you will love this guitar. At least go try it!!!
