This Razorback DB boasts Two Tone Silver Blast, one of Dime Bag’s original finishes. With its aggressive style and graphics, it screams “metal” and backs it up with fast action, high-output pickups, a Floyd Rose locking tremelo system, and plenty of access to upper frets.

Isn’t it time you get your (headstock) wings?
The late great Dimebag Darrell is a serious metal guitar hero, and Dean’s series of Dimebag models pays homage. Dimebag started playing Dean ML style guitars in the late ’70s, and made it one of the most recognizable shapes today. Dean offers a wide variety of Dimebag models to choose from, all boasting Dimebag’s distinctive look and tons of mojo and attitude.
Dean uses a mahogany body for this beast (as with many of its guitars). Mahogany is a common choice for electrics, dependably delivering a warm, full tone with plenty of punch and sustain.
And of course there’s the Cemetery Gates finish, sure to inspire some shredding.
Set Neck Construction
The Razorback Cemetery Gates features a set mahogany neck, which imparts all the well-known advantages of that style: a warmer overall tone with extended low-end response, wicked sustain, and easy upper-fret access. The 24-3/4-inch scale neck features a rosewood fingerboard with classic dot inlays.
Seymour Duncan Dimebucker Bridge Pickup
Seymour’s SH-13 Dimebuckers were designed with the man himself to provide serious output and an aggressive tone. The Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet and stainless steel blades for serious crunch. The SH-13 boasts more treble bite than a lot of humbuckers, along with low-end punch and exceptional dynamics.
A Dean humbucker completes the package up in the neck position, each pickup getting its own volume conrol, along with a shared tone and three-way toggle.
If you play guitar then you know what this means–solid, dependable tuning from the industry standard. These tuning machines are a triumph in engineering and style, with a gear ratio of 14:1, perfect gear meshing, and zero backlash and slippage. The gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
Licensed Floyd Rose Tremolo
The patented and often imitated double-locking design of the Floyd Rose tremolo allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. Engineered like no other tremolo system, the Floyd’s high-quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications. Beat it up as much as you want–from traditional vibrato to dive bombing leads or flapping loose strings, and stay in tune while you do it.
DBD Traction Knobs
Dimebag always rocked his “traction knobs,” which he created by taking a soldering iron to them, for knobs that are grippable no matter how much sweat’s pouring off you on stage. Dean faithfully recreates that here.
