Designed by the late, great Dimebag himself!
In late 2004, the music world was robbed of one of the most influential metal players ever. Despite his shocking demise, Dime's music lives on, and his signature style does too, thanks to the folks at Dean.
The U.S.-made Dimebag Razorback features a killer, jagged design with a hand-airbrushed rusted metal finish. The set mahogany neck has a rosewood fretboard with a pearl razorblade inlay at the twelfth fret that evokes Dime's famous necklace. A DiMarzio rhythm pickup and Dimebucker treble pickup unleash vicious tone that's sure to put a smile on any metalhead's face. Finished off with black hardware, Grover tuners, Floyd Rose trem, Dimebag traction knobs, and the Dimebag Tribute crest on the headstock. Also includes a certificate of authenticity and frameable Dimebag Tribute photo.

I'm an active & Professional guitarist, This is one of the nicest guitars I have ever played. Smooth, fast, clean, excellent intonation, AMAZING SOUND! I've used this piece for many recording sessions of ALL types of styles (jazz, pop, r&b, raggae, and rock) and it outperforms most every other guitar I've played. Much higher quality than the import models. A little over-priced, but if it's a collector's item, hopefully it will gain value. One for the gigs, and one for the wall.
This guitar is Dimebag Darrell. Besides the fact that it is FREAKING cool looking, it is also a finely tuned instrument of musical brutality. The frighteningly awesome paint job makes small children run and hide. On the other razorbacks, besides the Rebel, there is a graphic which may not look too bad from far away, but an up close look will make you want to vomit your stomach up. The ebony fretboard, that's as smooth as butter, makes shredding a joy. Jumbo frets allow for easy playability and the cut in the body make reaching the upper frets easier. It is probably impossible to make the Floyd Rose go out of tune, unlike the licensed Floyd Rose on all the other Dime signatures. As for tone, the high quality mahogany body and set neck match that of a HardTail or Timecapsule Dean. A Dimebucker graces the bridge with searing highs and smoldering lows. The DiMarzio neck pickup is great but I prefer the awe-inspiring Duncan '59. This is Dimebag Darrell incarnated. It is flawless and is a definite best buy for metal guitarists.
This guitar is awesome! Although it does feel a little different from a regular razorback. There might be a few differences dimension wise? But I really did love this guitar but my heart stopped when I saw the price tag on this beast. This also would have been the first razor dimebag used from what I hear, but never had the chance to use it live. You can really tell the workmanship is better than the import but it isn't worth the 4g's more. This thing looks beautiful up close. There is a light shimmer that the finish gives off that can really make scream, although I prefer the ML style more, but this is at the top of my wishlist. I heard it is easy to lose the paint off of the spikes so be careful shredding!!!!!
Not worth it? The imports are just as good? As an owner of two import razorbacks, as well as this one, let me tell you that the differences are EVERYWHERE! The first thing you'll notice is the case. Leather bound (Not the tweed cover that the imports come with) and the lining is a VERY protective plush material (Instead of the felt that the imports have). As for the guitar iteself, the finish speaks for itself. Stunning, and each one is a little different since they are each hand painted, making the one you get truly "one-of-a-kind". This has a US Floyd Rose on it, and if you have played an instrument with any "licensed" Floyd Rose, then you know as well as I do how much better the bar itself performs on the original. The weight of the Mahogany on this one feels a little "beafier" than the imports, which I'm sure is attributed to a higher quality wood. The neck is nothing short of FLAWLESS. A lesser "V" in the curve than the imports, but just enough to make it sit just right in the palm of your hand. Stainless Steel frets and an ebony fretboard make it feel slick and lightning fast. All this PLUS it is manufactured for a very limited time, making it a true collectors item as well. You will DEFINITELY notice a difference in quality from the imports and this hand made beauty.
I was very dissapointed with this guitar so I just traded it in for the DIME Razorback exlosion. anyway, this "tribute" guitar is NOT worth the price. dont get me wrong, its a great guitar, but its just as good as any of the other razorbacks. so if you are thinking about buying this guitar, also check out the others that are cheaper in price and you wont find a difference.
