Dean

Description

To follow Dimebag's original specifications, Dean built in a Seymour Duncan Distortion Neck Pickup Reversed in the bridge position, and paired it with the DiMarzio Super Distortion Neck Pickup to provide a scorching-hot humbucker that produces creamy tones. An ebony fretboard, adorned with abalone dot inlays, lies on the fast Thin V Profile neck.
