"Dimebag's Axe of Choice: Expensive, But Worth Every Penny"
I've never owned a guitar that sounds quite like this one. It's made for a metal god.
Dimebag had good taste. The features are basic, but they suffice for a lot.
Ease of Use:
I can see where he got it from, if the guitar played a factor in how well he was able to play.
It's a Razorback, and it's edgy, so you'd think "The paint's gonna chip off if you drop it." No sir.
I've owned around ten Deans, and I'm experienced with the company. They've got great service.
Don't get me wrong, I love it. But unfortunately, it's priced a little too high for my tastes. I paid around $350 for a basic BCR Kerry King V package and it plays very good compared to the way a Razorback does. (Not better than the Razorback, but very nice)
The Wow Factor:
I wouldn't have paid this much for a guitar like this if it weren't dead sexy. Gigging alone, I've had numbers dropped at my door.
Like I said before, it's not a waste of money at all. It's just really expensive. It's the most expensive guitar in my inventory. But if you can play very good (and I mean VERY good, because this is the farthest thing from starter there is), and if you've got the desire for a Razorback, then by all means, buy it. It's drop-dead gorgeous, it plays like nothing else, and it was Dimebag's weapon of choice. Honestly, I've never played or owned a better guitar, it just sucks that it's got such a fat price tag.
