Comments about Dean Dimebag Pantera Southern Trendkill ML electric Guitar:
If you are going for the Pantera sound, the stock pickup has a lot of low end/bass frequency content. This can be fixed by using a parametric EQ or by replacing the pickup to an L500XL.
This guitar offers a lot of reach for its price. If you order one in the box, the guitar comes with a whammy bar, an instrument cable, allen wrenches for the Floyd Rose system and instructions for adjusting the truss rod. There is also an included Dean sticker. This guitar is hard to put down after setup.
I quickly snapped the A string that came with the guitar in shipping. A new set of strings and a bit of F-One oil on the frets really makes this guitar sing. Using Ernie ball Hybrid Slinky (Orange Pack .09 -.48) works very well. Keeping the bridge flat adjusting the two set screws in the back of the guitar is easy with the holes that are machines into the back cover.
I noticed that when doing an extreme reverse dive on the bar (raising the string pitch or pulling the bar upwards), the spring mount rubs against the back cover. This creates noise while playing. Removing the back cover can remedy this problem. Once setup, the guitar stays in tune and can take quick a beating from the whammy bar.
