This guitar screams metal! The high end is amazing, the low down and dirty drop D tuning is the best I've ever heard, and it looks awesome on stage. I bought this guitar after testing it only once. If you're looking for a guitar that will destroy an audience with screaming tones and looks, this is the one for you.

Plays nice but it should for the price. The finish has blemishes in it and should be better for the cost. Definately looks cool and sounds awesome. You can get better quality from an American made Gibson or Fender for the same price but unfortuanatly you can't get the unique look of the Razorback Explosion. The case is really cheap and unfortunatley there are not aftermarket cases available because of the one of a kind design. I am still happy with the purchase but really expected better in this price range.

Simply b-e-a-u tiful!

By 07larscm

from New Franken, WI

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about 3 months now and the only other guitar I would buy besides a Dean now is my own custom shop ESP. The guitar itself feels great and sounds awsome through my JSX head and XXX cab. I can hit squeels no problem and the Dimebucker puts out enough punch that even the devil himself can feel it. My only complaint would be that you have to be really careful with the edges because they can sometimes get in the way and can easily be chiped. Other than that THE GUITAR IS A MUST BUY.

Explosion Dime Razorback

By Thomas

from Amarillo, TX

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I got a razorback for an early 18th b-day present. Best thing i got. The reason the quality is so low is cause i bought it with damages to the points on the headstock and a chip on the upper lower fin. The value was good cause with those damages, i got the guitar for about $100 cheaper. The neck is okay for me cause im used to a "C" shaped neck. that's the only problem for shredding. other than that, it's a good choice and look for any heavy metaller or a fan of Dimebag.

Sweet tone, plays like a hardtail

By Calpantera

from So-Cal

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I have owned my Razorback Explosion for 3 months now and I love it. The tremelo is rock solid for a full floater, it plays better than my Parker Fly and that has a killer trem. The tone is great, it picks up pinches and natural harmonics very well. It even has a nice clean tone but of course I love the crunch! The graphics are excellent. I was worried about that because I saw the Shard finish first and was not pleased with the pixelated look but the explosion finish is sweet. I have had more than my share of great guitars and I must say that this one was the best buy for the price. Well new purchase anyway :)

Best guitar by Dean Yet

By DeanBoy66

from Wheaton, Illinois

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

This guitar could use a whammy bar, but otherwise it's got everything you need in a guitar! 3 knobs. Excellent inlay, headstock, and body desings. Great sound and comfort just add to its greatness! I couldn't be more impressed with dean for creating this masterpiece!

Incredible

By RS

from Miami

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

This guitar is simply extraordinary. First while having a Floyd Rose is nice is not exactly that useful, Second the sustain is ridiculously incredible and finally the graphics and general design of the guitar are superb. Chalk another one up for Dean and there Dimebag line.

Dean Explosion Dime Razorback Electric Guitar

By darkclawX11

from Fresno, CA.

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I have seen and played a lot of electric guitars in my time, but this is by far the best looking and sounding guitar I have ever seen. Being a fan of dimebag darrell's music inspired me to play the guitar. If you want that signature sound that only dimebag brought, this is the must own guitar. This paticular guitar is the remake of the actual guitar that Dimebag was playing on stage when his life was cut short. highly recommend this guitar and all others in this line of Dime dean razorback guitars.

WOW!!!!

By Tomaczech

from Austin, TX

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I saved forever to buy this guitar. Doing odd jobs and such. And it's worth every bit of sweat and tears I put into buying it. beautiful tone. Amazing action. and the V style neck makes playing very nice. However make sure you change the strings one at a time and don't take them all off. It REALLY screws the thing up. The Floyd Rose can be a little bit difficult to work with but an amazing guitar overall.

decent guitar but overpriced

By Tim Gamec

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

Plays nice but it should for the price. The finish has blemishes in it and should be better for the cost. Definately looks cool and sounds awesome. You can get better quality from an American made Gibson or Fender for the same price but unfortuanatly you can't get the unique look of the Razorback Explosion. The case is really cheap and unfortunatley there are not aftermarket cases available because of the one of a kind design. I am still happy with the purchase but really expected better in this price range.

Simply the best

By Zak X of Pshycosomatic

from Rendon, TEXAS

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

I Bought this guitar a few years back and now i'm glad i did. I play in a metal band and i tell ya, this thing is a total crowd pleaser. One, the Seymore Duncan pickups really pack a punch when it counts, and two, the graphics just really express the guitar and somehow increase it's overall performance. this guitar is a hell of an investment and i recomend it to everyone who asks.

This is the greatest metal guitar of all time!

By Dimebag Darrel

from Brazil

Comments about Dean Explosion Razorback Electric Guitar:

This guitar just rocks, everything on this is perfect, the neck, the floyd, just EVERYTHING! a wise choice for those who likes a screaming guitar. To change the strings and to get in tune is a bit annoyng but when its been fixed, it rarely goes out of tune! you must buy it, this axe is superb!
