One of Dimebag Darrell's final designs.
Being a Dean, the Razorback V looks as good as it sounds. Dangerous-looking edges are highlighted by color-contrast bevels on the body and outlines on the famous Dean headstock. V inlays with Dime's razorblade at the twelfth fret plus all black hardware make this guitar wickedly stunning.
The Dean Razorback V features a mahogany neck and body, a rosewood fretboard and a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker pickup at the bridge. The V-shape neck has a strong, set joint and a 1-5/8" nut. Grover tuners and a locking tremolo keep you in perfect tune while you divebomb the night away. 22 fast frets facilitate wicked, shredding solos and lightning quick chord changes. 2 humbuckers with 3-way switching, volume and tone control keep things simple, yet tonally flexible.
Dimebag Darrell Abbott's return to Dean Guitars was one of the many things cut far too short by his death near the end of 2004, but his many drawings and ideas have kept the guitar makers at Dean inspired. These Razorback Vs were some of Darrell's final designs, and we're sure they will inspire you, too!

i bough this guitar about 11 months ago,and it has an amazing sound and sustain,the dimebuckers(we al know its just a name cuz those are just seymour duncan) are just sick,the sound that comes from this baby its the perfect metal tone,the neck is a little thick but stll very comfortable,im not a big fan of the shape cuz i still love the classic Jackson king v which im planing to switch this one for,but its an exellent guitar...it would be better if the price new would be the used one because the only bad thing its that its over price
First off this license floyd does not suck at all(I've been dive-bombing this thing to hell for 2 weeks and its still perfect). Another thing great about this guitar is the dimebucker. The hardshell isnt half bad either. The reason I gave it a 3.5 for value is that 1,000 bucks isnt exactly cheap, however I got the black and red when it went on clearance. Overall this guitar is amazing and though its image suggests only metal you can get great blues/jazz tones out of the neck.
I got my dean razorback straight from the Dean warehouse in Tampa. It is an amazing guitar. After going through so many shows this guitar has proven itself to its ability. It never loses tuning, the dimebucker pickup allows so much high end which is perfect for those whammy bar squeals and pinch harmonics for the metal musicians. I highly recomend this guitar from someone who has been playing thrash in a heavy metal band.
It just plays like a rhoads v but looks WAY cooler. The neck to body ratio is pretty well balanced, and the whole thing doesn't weigh much. Pickups scream and can give you a Woman tone if you roll off the tone on the neck pickup. This is one of the greatest things I've ever played. RIP DIME
I bought this guitar 2 days ago and it is awsome. it blows my les paul deluxe away. the dimebuckers are sick amd give it an awsome metal tone. trem is great.
This is a great guitar and has become my favorate in just a short time. The sound is amazing and the action is unstopable, if you have the floyd rose set right. I found that the floyd rose hight ajustments are a crucial part to this guitar if they are not right the guitar will not stay in tune but once it is all in balance this thing is unstopable and never goes out of tune. The stings are loose enough allowing you to pull off the two and a half step bends with no problems unlike many other well know guitars. I have been a player for 15 years and a guitar setup tech for 5 years and this guitar is beautiful right out of the box no neck adjustments no anything but the floyd rose pivet points and of course change the strings. You can drop the strings clear off the neck and turn around and bend the wammy back so far you think it will rip off the guitar and the string tunnings stay perfect. The only thing I can say bad about this guitar is it takes some work to get the floyd rose set you basically have to go a half turn on the two screws at a time then balance the tension springs in the back of the guitar. You'll know when you have it righ the guitar will never go out of tune and the floyd rose will be about level to the body. Good shredding and remember to change the strings often it keeps your sound tight.
I have always wanted a dime since I started playing guitar and I finally got one. I have had no problems with any thing. I have 7 other guitars ranging from gibson to ltd but I have a new favorite. The dimebucker is crazy, I get the crunch I need for those rythems you just want to be heavy and that neck pickup is amzing. I switch over for my solos and it just flows and the v shaped neck is my favorite feature on the guitar. It is truly amazing. This guitar is for any one who wants a guitar that looks killer and has the sound to match metal to blues. It does it all.
Out of the box...set up is crap so if you want optimal performance and you take your guitar playing seriously...obviously get a set up. With that being said...once this bad boy was dialed in...sweet! The Floyd locks in nicely...stays in tune no worries. Dive bombs are effortless. It is surprisingly light weight. In the pictures the hardware looks black, but its not...its a black/chrome which looks like after time will fade away. But for players, who cares? I load all my other guitars with EMG's, and I was a little skeptical of the Dimebucker. Its a smokin' pickup...a little bass heavy and a little thin for my liking though. Im used to the compresed attack of the EMG's. Most likely I will swap 'em out. Overall, this guitar does rip...great feel, great action if set up properly. If you tune down like I do make sure you add more springs to the trem to compensate for the slack in tension...any good repair shop worth anything should set you up this way. Finish on this thing is beautiful...Im diggin the metallic white...has a bit of shine to it so its not just plain ol' white. And the black bevels set it off. Other than the Dimebucker being a little thin for my taste, the guitar rips.
i would have given it a five star, but the thing is that im having more trouble with the floyd rose than anything. the whammy bar doesnt really withstand, and i have trouble keeping it in tune sometimes....but overall its a fun guitar and i really like the dimebucker. with some minor repairs this is an awesome guitar, even though the paint dings up easily in some places...but its a fun guitar nontheless.
I bought this guitar a few months ago an it hasn't gone out of tune yet. It has very fast action so you can shred like crazy.
