Ok. Here’s the scoop. Dime used the doubler, not the flanger. He had at least 2 rigs running at any given time. One amp was dry, the other amp had the Flanger/Doubler, in the loop so it mixed together and was a bit thicker sounding. I know this first off because I know Grady’s college roommate. He knew everything about the way Dime’s rig was setup from hanging out with Grady backstage every show they played in NC. Crazy thing is, he didn’t even play guitar.LOL This is a quote from GW Jan.2010 to further back up what I was trying to help people out with, not be a know it all.
“Dimebag’s original rig consisted of a Randall RG-100 Head, Furman PQ-3 parametric Eq, MXR 6 band Graphic Eq, MXR 126 Flanger/Doubler, Dime used the two equalizers in a unique way, cutting the midrange frequency curve with the PQ-3, restoring the narrow band of midrange with the MXR 6 band EQ and using both to increase the gain going into the amp’s front end, just like a distortion pedal. Dime used the MXR 126 Flanger/Doubler to thicken his rhythm tones.” He also used an MXR Blue Box, but that’s for another day. To say that the MXR is not that important is like saying the Randall RG-100 wasn’t important. Like I said before, when you have it in the mix, you will know what’s been missing. If you’re gonna do it right, do it right. I know alot of guys including myself who don’t need anything but a good amp and their fret hand to get good Dime tone. Just trying to help that’s all. We can agree to disagree. If you REALLY want to know EVERYTHING, get on facebook and message Grady. I’m sure he would be more than happy to help anyone out on mastering Dime’s sound and he knew it better than anyone. In the end, all that’s important is PLAYING METAL EVERYDAY!!!!! Later.

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.

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!

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.
