Dimebag Washburn Guitar

This is a brief demo of my Washburn 333 Dimeslime guitar! It’s a guitar like no other and really plays like a monster. I figured I should jam on a couple of Pantera riffs to show what it can do, but it’s actually a really versatile guitar and the Dimebucker pumps out to 11! For clean I’m using the neck pickup into a Digitech XP-100 Whammy Wah to adjust the pitch up 1/4 step and a Dunlop MXR EVH Phase 90. The dirty stuff is bridge pickup straight into the amp, which is a Rivera Knucklehead Tre with Rivera and Mesa 4×12 Cabs. Thanks for watching and don’t forget to like my video and check out my other demo videos!

There were a few limited run Dime 3’s such as the coveted Southern Cross There were 150 slated to be made but maybe only 125 produced or somethng like that. Those go for around 4-5K on the bay. Dime 3 Dimeslime (DS) or Dimebolts (DB) go for around 2.5-3K. Here were a few Dime 3ST’s with an aluminum front. I’ve seen one pop up on ebay from time to time but didn’t pay that close attention. I read something recently in a guitar rag where they were talking to Dime’s guitar tech. Dime apparently didn’t like the sound of this particular guitar.I’m not sure how many Dime 3’s had them but I’m pretty sure some of the Dime 3ST’s had them.

The original Dean from Hell had 2 Bill Lawrence L500’s in it. You can see dimebag washburn guitars in the video Cowboys from Hell that the neck pick-up is a BL. Most likely it was a Bill Lawrence L500-L in the bridge and an L500-R in the neck. At some point Dime replaced the neck pick up with the Seymour Duncan 59 and all of the USA Dimes came with the SD 59 in the neck. I’m pretty sure but not totally certain that it was always a zebra to boot.That’s about all I have. If you’d have asked me about the N series I could go on a lot longer.

This washburn guitars dimebag gives a brilliant overall impression, it can play any kind of music brilliantly, all though it would look weird playing anything other than metal live at a gig.I have only been playing for a little over two years now, this is my second guitar, my only other is an Ibanez RGD320, which I no longer use thanks to this Washburn. I love that it can manage any type of music and seems virtually indestructible, the only downside is it’s insane weight. If it were stolen, I would find the person responsible and break them with the guitar, knowing full well that it would probably survive unscathed and he wouldn’t.

If I couldn’t find them I would search as best I could to get a new one, but I’m not sure I’d find one as it’s no longer in production. I couldn’t settle for a Dean ML after playing this guitar, I’ve compared my Washburn with my friend’s Dean and we have both agreed that mine is the better guitar by hundreds of thousands of miles.

Washburn Dimebag Guitars

2-19

When Dean guitars ceased production in 1994, Dimebag started a ten-year relationship with Washburn guitars. The most common of this period is the Dime 333, most famously offered in the Dimeslime finish. Essentially, this guitar was a Washburn version of Dime’s Dean ML, complete with a licensed Floyd Rose vibrato and Washburn Eliminator humbuckers.Washburn also produced the flagship US-made Dime 3, and entry-level Dime 332.

From its legendary lightning bolts to the blue finish, The Dean Dimebag Dean From Hell CFH Electric Guitar is a reproduction of Dime’s very own, just as it appears on the cover of Cowboys From Hell. The Dean From Hell is constructed with a mahogany body and neck combined with a rosewood fretboard, making it perfect for high-speed shredding.

This guitar has a unique slim neck. It allows for lead guitar players to move fast. I get the best squeals from these humbucker. I highly recommend this guitar to every metal head’s arsenal.I think that this guitar is at a perfect price, it has a great sound and is light weight. It’s a little odd to get used to playing if you never had a v shaped guitar, but It’s a great overall guitar.

May be a lower priced version of the “Dime V” signature guitar, but it still has the Dimebag sound to it. Good sounding guitar.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.

Washburn Dimebag

“Dimebag” Darrell Lance Abbott was a rock star’s rock star. On December 8, 2004, the Pantera and Damageplan guitarist was gunned down doing what he lived for—thrashing onstage with Damageplan and partying with fans at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. His untimely passing left a gaping hole in the metal world, one that will never be filled with the same fun-loving personality and musical sensibility.

Dimebag was famous for embracing his devoted legions and being both generous and genuine with fans.Some of these intimate gestures involved sharing a cocktail with fans. Dime’s signature drink—a shot of Crown Royal whiskey topped with a splash of Coke—was coined the Black Tooth Grin, which was a nod to a lyric in Megadeth’s “Sweating Bullets” off Countdown to Extinction.If it meant answering endless questions at a guitar clinic, signing every piece of merch or gear after a show, or just taking the time to listen to a metalhead’s compliment and offer a high-five, Abbott seemed happy doing it.

Washburn USA built this custom, one-off Dime 3 model as a gift for their red-bearded endorsee. (Sandwiched in between two different endorsements with Dean Guitars, Abbott played Washburns from 1994 to early 2004.) The guitar even came with a purple drawstring gig bag mimicking Crown Royal’s top-shelf packaging, and each inlay on this axe is a detailed gold crown. It’s loaded with a Seymour Duncan SH-1 humbucker in the neck and a Bill Lawrence L500 pickup in the bridge. This Dime 3 features a mahogany body, a mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard, and a 24.75″ scale length.

Hard Rock acquired this guitar directly from Dime in early 2004. “In fact, he invited our head of memorabilia to his home when we picked up this beauty,” recalls Hard Rock’s historian Jeff Nolan. “In a classic Dimebag moment, he answered the door with a drink in his hand and two lit bottle rockets (laughs).”
