My Dimebag Tribute Almost done!!! Pics Inside!!!!

Hey guys


I have been long affected by Dimebags murder, Some of you here know that Dime was the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place, and He was my passion for playing and living as well, His lifestyle taught me how to treat other people, and that is something I will always hold close to me along with his music.

So with that, I had my USA Washburn Dime 3 Stealth painted in tribute.
I love Green and especially slime and metallic green, so here is the result.
I had the bolts done on the front mirror Dime's original Dean From Hell, and the ones on the back were just random, also the headstock has a Razorblade around the logo to retain the logo but give it a personal touch.












let me know what you think! I'll have pics of the finished axe as soon as it's ready!

Dime would be proud I think!

RIP Brother Dime!!!!

Re: My Dimebag Tribute Almost done!!! Pics Inside!!!!

Hey guys!

I should have said I didn't do it! I'm artistically challenged in the paint department!
I had a friend and long time graphic artist do it for me! his name is Jim Chambers.

Anyhow, the fretboard is actually ebony, with no inlays, but you will see it tomorrow as it will be done! and pics will be taken!
cheers guys!
