I bought it from mars music because it had an awsome tone when i tried it out (cuz im a huge fan of dimebag darrel) i Payed $700 for it (but according to the website its a regular $1100)
This guitar is probably he most faithful guitar anyone will ever own. Obviously this idiot (Keith Aufman) doesnt know that he probably bought the worst model cuz hes cheap or know how to treat his guitar considering he dropped it and broke it. it has an awesome look (chicks dig it). very comfortable, when on stage. has the most kick ass sound. and its the dimebag darrel's signature guitar so of course it kicks ass.
honestly, i love this thing
i love the body style. the quality is awesome, not to heavy but has weight so that you know its there. ive had mine for a year and its still in awesome shape (considering i take care of it unlike that jack ass i mentioned earlier).
this is all around the best guitar ive ever own (even though i would like to check out the zakk wylde custom les paul)
The Dime 333 is a Korean made model. It's made to be close to the late Dimebag Darrell's specifications, though he used the US made Washburn signature models. The 333 has cheaper, generic pickups (though they don't sound that bad) and a Washburn-licensed Floyd-Rose floating bridge.

This guitar was set up great and played like butter from day one! Nice feel and easy to get accustomed to.
This guitar sounds very full and bell-like. Maybe it's the large body or the Alder, but it just rings out, even when not plugged in.
The two Washburn pickups are not bad. They have plenty of output and lots of singing sustain for leads, but they don't really have a unique "voice" or much of a complex quality. A simple pickup change will take the tone from good to great!
I have tried several pickups including a Seymour Duncan JB, a Screamin Demon, several DiMarzios and currently an EMG 81, though I am definitely going back to passives soon.
This guitar plays very smoothly and effortlessly. Even with heavy strings, it still is easy to pull off bends, most likely because of the Floyd rose trem. The drawback is that when doing big full-step bends, the bridge pulls towards the neck, resulting in the strings going flat and making it difficult to bend up to pitch. But that's a common thing with Floyds.
Clean tones ring out beatifully, and have a depth and clarity that rivals any guitar I've played, including my Les Paul.
This guitar is a great value, even today at used prices. The excessive size and pointy shape may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for the Dime fan or any guitarist that wants a unique sounding guitar with some of the best clean tones I've ever heard, and one that plays like butter, this one's for you.

Alder guitar with flamed maple top, Washburn pickups and Floyd Rose tremolo.
Nice-looking guitar with a good finish.
(8) It seems ok.
The neck is simple but it has no character. The frets are well manufactured, the Floyd Rose tremolo is very bad and it doesn't stay in tune. It's not possible to block the strings for a long period of time. The knobs don't work progressively and the pickups have a lousy sound. It's difficult to get a good sound. Access to the upper frets is good.
(3) Not good, just ok.
The sound has no character, nothing special. However, unplugged it sounds pretty good. The high-end is very present and it is really inviting to keep on playing. Once you plug the guitar, the clean tone is ok but the 6th string generates noise and the distortion sound is very inaccurate. Don't use the Floyd Rose tremolo if you want the guitar to stay in tune.
(3) Compared with other guitars in this price range the result is very poor. If I were to compare it with all possible competitors it would be pathetic.
I used it a few weeks and then I sold it to a guy who found it very good. I think you must be a fan to like it but it's just an average guitar to me.

C is a favorite guitar, I do not know where it is manufactured, a 22 round boxes for pickups washburn (2Double) .3 buttons, 1volume for each microphone and tonalité.le handle is round with a white binding.
The handle is round and very pleasant, a cream colored binding makes it very beautiful, each access is easy to acute, c is a metalhead guitar! Super heavy but it is so beautiful that c is not really grave.les washburn pickups of base are a little weak people, but I intend to replace them with duncan.
I play metal so that scratching is done for me, plugged into my marshall vs 100 2 body it provides, the sound is quite degeulasse and nag, which is perfect for moi.et even in the clear (though I m mad! ) it provides.
I have the last two days and I'm madly in his look is overwhelming, c is my 5th guitar and the best for me, one did the microphones changed the assurer.je gonna have paid 530euros with etui, which n really loves the rien.je it made me a musician filled.
