Made in China
Bolt-on maple neck
Rosewood fretboard with 22 frets
"Zebra" mixed color open coil humbuckers
Tune-o-matic style bridge
1-11/16" nut width
2 volumes, 1 tone, 1 3 way switch.
The neck is dry, warped, with frets sticking out of the side of the fretboard. And this is after a professional adjustment and setup! The neck is the most important part of the guitar, and for one to be this mangled from the factory is absolutely unacceptable. The cosmetic package is cheesy - I realize that's subjective, but this is some pretty awful design and finish work here. All I can in good conscience suggest to do is to not buy this guitar.
At least the pickups are better than the neck! But this is like saying a mud sandwich is better than just eating raw mud, simply because it includes some bread. The pickups are noisy, inarticulate, muddy, weak, and frankly just awful sounding. This is a terrible-sounding guitar.
This guitar is not a good instrument, I'm sorry to say. I loved Dimebag Darrell and Pantera when I was a kid, and I still adore his playing to this day. But this to me seems more like a way for Dean to make money than a way to honor Dimebag's memory. I realize that Dean is a business, and the point of a business is to make money, but this guitar's quality is so terrible... It just seems like poor taste, in my opinion, to slap Dimebag's name and likeness on a guitar that is of such inferior quality. I'm sure Dimebag would be happy to see kids just starting to get into guitar playing an axe named for him and modeled after his real ones, but to be honest, there are guitars of much higher caliber out there for the same or less cost. Don't buy this unless you are a Pantera or Dime fan and just want a wall decoration.
This guitar has two volume knobs and one tone knob. It has a maple neck, basswood body, and rosewood fretboard. It has two Zebra Humbuckers in it, and a Tune-O-Matic bridge. It has a 3 position pick up selector. The selections are Bridge, Both, and Neck. It also uses Grover tuners, which keeps the guitar in tune fairly well.
It is super easy to access the top notes. The neck is fast, smooth, and easy to use. The guitar, being made of basswood, is extremely lightweight, and prone to neck dives (at least the one I had was). The shape is a bit ridiculous for my tastes. The headstock is waaay too big, and seems like it would be very easy to break.
This guitar has a decent sound. Not the best in the world, but not the worst. The pickups are not all that great. The cleans are lackluster and the distortion is harsh and trebley. It would benefit greatly from a pickup swap, but it's not worth it. This is not that great of a guitar. Everything seems to be lackluster and sterile. Nothing seems to have a good sound coming from this guitar. It's decent, but not anything truly great. Nothing sets this guitar apart from the others except the paint-job and Dime's name.
This is truly a beginner guitar. It seems to be of a low-quality and seems to use cheap parts. The Tuners are ok, but the stock tuners on my Jackson JS-1 Dinky are far better. The switch is decent as well. The body is very light, so that's a plus coming from someone with a bad back, but it's not enough to make up for the lackluster and sterile sound that comes from this guitar stock. This is a beginner's guitar and that's about it.
Made in china.
2 volumes 1 tonailté
microphones unknown but powerful!!!!
finish "O flag" is not the prettiest but hey .....
the handle is super nice, rather thin.
The body is super light to my surprise (linden)
Access to acute is correct, however, the strap can slightly embarrassed because the attachment is at the plate shaft
The guitar is not made to play the sound is rather reggae.La Rock, Heavy blues!
The pickups are very powerful (too?)
The dial tone is really effective which is quite rare on guitar
Currently use a BOSS GT3 (ammpli lamp HS), This is happiness! Great if you like .. distos and bluesy solos
It happens very quickly find a good metal sound. its light side, we get a little warm sound bluesy
with the bridge pickup and tonailté max, we get a nice clear sound but the big c not really micro crystalline
I for 1 week and among my many guitars, it is worth it!
1. The finish is really not bad (not related to a squier 7 string!), Yet only the mechanical Grover are "cheap"
2. The handle is a good compromise between Jackson and Epiphone LP
3.la palette of sounds is extended
1. Finish "O Flag" ... with a spangle gray, closest to a "glam" than a big metalhead
2. biensur can not play sitting! type position except Flying V. ..
3. Potato mics ... to see to put a few things more crystal sound
Conclusion: Considering the price, the quality is really great!! Metalheads be provided or rocker (the edge is a good Explorer!). Provide a change of pickups ... SH .... by seymour

Made in China.
3 pots: two volume and one level, 3-position selector.
Body: Basswood NECK: saddle and fingerboard: rosewood.
Urban camouflage gray colored straw with black silhouettes of Dimebag ^ ^ ...
We go hard inaperu and personally I think she has great style Aesthetics.
The handle is one of the best I had in hand ... round, large and not too pais I find the grip trs good, we dplace easily Access in acute enough planks and we want the "bar" without getting too tired .
Ergonomics gnrale is also good: the guitar is not trs heavy as the body is long enough weight is rather well rpart and the handle looks up naturally.
The pickups are humbuckers zebra Dean: The neck is quite low and is rather good DEFINITIONS, draws closer to the bridge and the treble is a bit more powerful, the two sets are obtained easily from the potato but that it sounds rough ...
I play on a GT60 Harte piggy back. I play some metal, rock, funk ...
It works well for styles that I play. It feels so comfortable that it was always wanted to express.
In clean, it has good sound (although perhaps a little low load but also its charm aa) and saturated sound has the PCHE, but you have to like the highs (they are not overloaded but they dominate)
I'm happy even if I think a better range of passing in micro-lived.
I have my Dime-o-Flage 2 years now ... buy 382 instead of 470 (it is now worth just over 300 ...) it t first by its looks (all my friends dtstent but does not make that particulire me even more)
For the entry level Premire and my meeting with Dean, I can say I am 100% happy with my choice!
I went from an unplayable Jim Harley, poorly finished and fragile electricity 1000 x better!
The shock does violate it can be also a guitar that I love so much and it affects my decision on forcment ^ ^
I felt comfortable IMMEDIATE, I amlior rhythmically, in short I want to play and I love playing it.
The pickups are good but I change them once even by a couple sh-2 jazz / sh-4 JB.
Quality level compared prices, I do not feel vol. There are some imperfections lightweight but very small as a small crack in the paint o the handle enters the body.
A budget gal? I fell for a Razorback DB (between CHARACTERISTICS same range) as j'apprcie enormment form but yes I do it again if that choice. If I had a bigger budget I took the Two-tone but frankly I do not regret my decision one minute
