Dimebag Darrell Washburn Guitars


Dimebag Darrell Washburn Guitars–dimebag darrell famous washburn dime slime miniature guitar replica–this collectible guitar is a replica of dimebag darrell’s famous dime slime guitar. This is a miniature 1:4 scale replica model instruments can fit in the palms of your hands – it is approximately 9.5-10″” In length and come with a adjustable display stands. They are handcrafted out of solid wood. This replica beautifully displayed the original work of art with great attention to details.

Pearl skull inlays at 12th fret
Fast V-shaped neck
High output pickups
Tune-o-matic bridge
String thru body
3-way switch
Jumbo frets
Exclusive grover 18:1 gear ratio tuners

A heavy metal weapon designed with the man voted best metal guitarist in numerous reader’s polls.dime’s favorite and fabulously fast V-shaped neck mates up to a radically-shaped body with high output pickups, a tune-o-matic bridge, and string-through-body design for extra resonance and big sustain. 24 jumbo frets help eliminate buzzing notes all the way up to the highest highs while pearl skull inlays at the 12th fret lend a dangerous demeanor.there were a few small paint chips missing from the ends of the bottom fins. One thing I’ve been told and I’ve also witnessed first hand is the paint washburn guitars dimebag darrell was finished with is really cheap. I’ve dinged the headstock twice since I’ve had it and there are small paint chips on it now. I’ve banged the headstocks/bodies of my other guitars harder and they’ve come away alright, but I have to be extremely careful with this guitar. On the plus side the LFR is one of the nicest LFR’s I’ve played on. It holds up great with frequent dive bombing and stays in tune for extended periods of time. The paint lines for the bevels were real clean, there’s no rough lines at all, and paint lines up perfectly with the bevels themselves. It’s something you would assume should be a given, but I’ve seen more than enough high end guitars with worse paintjobs. The same thing can be said for the sides of the neck where they meet the fretboard.

Washburn Dime 3


The washburn dime3 guitar has all the original equipment, in perfect condition, not a single scratch on it. Sounds good for passive pickups (still like my EMG’s better). I bought it at the time cause i was huge into pannier and unfortunately dime was shot before i ever got a chance for him to sign it. Spent a good 2 years saving up for it. As far as i know its kinda rare seeing how it was a USA custom shop and had to be directly ordered from the factory. IDK i just cant play it DE-tuned and its just lost its appeal since i cant ever get it signed by the guy who played it. And no my friend has pics of it but he is putting it up online as we speak.

Now there where made black backs, green backs, satin, everything on washburn.there is also pointy stealth body dimeslimes out there too. I have a black back dimebolt D3 from brandon M. Sounds the same as my southern cross.I play through a crate powerblock head(because it cost me $70) and a crate GT412 cabinet. I usually play through a boss MT-2 metal zone, a seymour duncan pickup booster pedal, and sometimes my digitech black 13. This guitar is great for any type of metal. I really don’t know what to rate this since it didn’t come with the stock pickups, but it sounds awesome now so I’ll give it an 8.

Make no mistakes about it, this is a metal guitar. I’m not going to use it to play jazz or folk rock, for example.the lame thing about it when it arrived, was the neck pickup didn’t was soldered in wrong, so I replaced it with a seymour duncan ’59 and the bridge with a dimebucker. I know dimebag used a bill lawrence L-500XL,but after using it I decided I liked the dimebucker better. With the ’59 I can get amazing cleans, and with the dimebucker ultra high gain leads.

Washburn Dime 2st


Features: an alder body, thin,you shaped maple neck, 22 jumbo frets. It’s got a Washburn made liscenced Floyd Rose 2 tremelo, 2 humbuckers with 3-way toggle, 2 volume, and 1 tone speedknobs. Aslo has Grover 18:1 tuners. All black hardware and a black paintjob with silver bevels finishes this beast out.The neck itself sits far inside the body. It extends into the neck pickup cavity and sits behind the neck pickup. Came with a Washburn form fitting hardshell case. I give it an 8 because of the lack of an OFR tremelo and the fact it’s a bolt-on, and not set neck or neck through.

Other than the affore mentioned toggle Switch, the hardware all seems pretty solid. I haven’t had problems with any of the knobs or the input jack loosening up. It holds up to Live playing, as long as it doesn’t get knocked into something. In fact, the cheap paint makes me play more carefully than I usually do with other guitars, which I guess isn’t really such a bad thing. I would never play without a back up, especially because of the locking trem. I give it an 8 because of the broken, most likely low quality toggle Switch(because good ones usually don’t just happen to crack in half), and the paranoia of chipping the paint with the slightest bump.

Overall this is a pretty great metal guitar. I use it to play thrash mostly, but also just straight up metal, some heavier hard rock, and newer style metal, and it’s perfect for those. It’s not all that flexible, but that’s why I called it a metal guitar. For more flexibility I’ll play my Les Paul for things like hard rock and blues. I got it for an overall great deal, especially since it’s been discontinued. I would compare this to the Dean Razorbacks, or any mid level BC Rich, and I like to think this would come out ahead of them. If I had the chance I would buy it all over again.

Dimebag Had many custom Stealths, one of the most popular being the Reinventing The Steel Diamondplate Stealth.These were only a few of the stealths he had.The sound of this guitar is where it really gets a chance to stand out. This guitar would appear to be made for all out metal and nothing else, but in this instance you definitely should NOT judge a book by it’s cover. I play a variety of musical styles, admittedly it’s mainly metal, but if I hear a song that I like it’s genre won’t stop me from learning it. I have learnt a fair few pop, classic rock, country / western songs as well. This guitar can play any of those brilliantly.There is almost no rust on any metallic parts, apart from the screws in the pickup housings, which is surprising, again considering it’s age. I have never had any issues with this guitar’s reliability and I would gladly gig without a backup and not a care in the world. The finish doesn’t seem to have worn anywhere except a little bit on the back of the guitar where the plastic strap buckle bas been pressed against it.

Dimebag Darrell Washburn Guitar


Since I have been playing guitar for eleven years, bass for five, drums for three and I’ve been trying to sing my whole life. I bought the guitar as an intermediate, but cocky, player only to find that I had quite a lot to learn about guitars. Now that I am an experienced guitarist and have a few shows and a few CDs under my belt I am very pleased that I bought this instrument. I bought it for somewhat foolish reasons because I thought it looked cool and so I could be like Dimebag Darrell or whatever and now I’m thinking it was one of the smartest purchases I have ever made, I love it. Still, I don’t think I’d bring it to a jazz club just because it would probably scare the hell out of people.

Either that or they’d think I was ridiculous only because, as I said, it looks like something straight out of 1983 played by a guy with really big hair and pants so tight you can almost see his…it would certainly sound good enough to play anywhere, though.I find the guitar useful most in the studio because, as I’ve pointed out, its appearance limits its live usage to metal – and even so, metal purists might be more critical of a new player using a signature model. In the studio, however, you can make this thing sound like any kind of guitar you want and you don’t have to tell anyone what it looks like – just let them drool over the killer tone you’ve got and tell them to buy a CD!

Dime Washburn


But at some point in the 90’s -i think ’95- Dean went bust and stopped making guitars which meant Dime no longer had a company to make him guitars and when your part of such a massive touring band like PanterA you need more than just a couple of guitars at your disposal. So he turned to Washburn who started to make him signature guitars. Dime started using Dean guitars (ML model to be specific) when he was a teenager and used Deans for a large chunk of his life.Dime was back in business with a line of new bad ass guitars which look quite similar to the Dean ML’s but they have their own uniqueness.

However Dime was very found of Deans – and having met Dean Zelinsky when he was quite young – he felt very loyal to them and so when Dean got going again, Dime switched back in 2004 i think. And in that short period he was with them before he passed he helped design the razorback.

As a player of metal in the early 90’s (yes, like the dinosaurs, there were one or two of us still struggling to survive in the harsh environment of 1992) I wanted nothing more than to listen to, and play, the most ball crunching, face smashing, universally offensive, rude, blasphemous music I could possibly find. Then one day I heard a Slayer album and, well… Once I’d decided that the crown had been placed upon the mighty banging heads of Slayer as to who were the kings of blasphemous, blistering metal, I began a new search. That search led me to the phenomenal playing and brutal onslaught that dime washburn guitars are Pantera. Being that I am a guitarist originally, I found Dimebag Darrell’s playing to be absolutely top-notch and sought, eventually, to own his axe.

Washburn Dimebag Darrell


Dimebag Darrell ML body style belongs to Dimebag Signature series. Washburn’s Dean ML-style Dime 333 and radical Gibson Explorer-like Dime Culprit models were one of the most popular one. The Dime 333 had a Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo, the 332 model featured a stop-tail bridge.The Culprit, with its sliced-up Explorer-style body, featured a Floyd Rose tremolo, a mirror pickguard and a pair of hot ceramic humbucking pickups with chrome cover.

Many Washburn guitars equipped with humbuckers have a feature called Voice Contour Control (VCC), which is currently available only on Washburn. VCC is similar to coil splitting, in that it changes the tone of a humbucking pick-up to that of a single coil, but it does it by turning the tone knob. In doing so the musician can get every sound from the humbucker to the P-90 to the single coil and all points in between, all without the hum normally associated with single coils. In other words, it gives the player the option of a warm/thick humbucker sound, or a thinner single coil sound at the twist of a knob.

Washburn uses the mechanism of endorsements, where:Manufacturer provides custom-shop instrument that suits the artist best, for free (or even paying artist).Artists promotes his or her usage of that instrument and advertises manufacturer company.This process greatly promotes the whole industry. At the Beginning artists often try to copy the sound of their favorite artists and thus try to use the same equipment. Endorsements help both manufacturers and consumers: beginning artists get to know what kind of equipment their idol uses and can copy their sound easier, and companies raise sales.
