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.
The Washburn stealth was designed by Dimebag Darrell Abbott Of Pantera and Damageplan and put a guitar in production by Washburn guitars from 2000-2004. The guitar was based on the Dean Guitars ML body shape but with sharper points.In 2008, Dean started to produce a cheap imitation of the Washburn Stealth following Dime and Washburn’s designs.
The St-Pro, or Stealth Pro was a second import Steath model Washburn was started manufacturing in 2003/2004. It featured a Set Neck and Mahogany body such as the USA made Stealth’s. All USA specs and hardware were used, except they went with the USA Dime3 offset headstock instead of the symmetrical stealth headstcok. Finishes came in Transblack and Cherryburst.
