Well somewhat like a gibson. They get the best features of a gibson guitar which are the electronics arrangement, angled neck, mahogany bodys, with none of the crappy fretwork. Ive used the low end FBD and it was a pretty fun guitar even if the neck joint was really clunky, and it doesnt have a dimebucker in it. Oh well. What neck position pickup does the high end FBD model have in it? I was using a duncan 59er and a dimebucker in my rg, and I just recently traded out the 59er for a dimarzio air norton.666boy666 said:Yeah, but there's already a tribute crest on the headstock though. It's a sweet sounding guitar, and plays great too, much to my surprize.
I know deans were modeled after gibsons, so I didn't want to own one really cause I hate gibson, but this one is pretty nice. I haven't played the dime-o-flame, but I hear it's paint job lacks in quality.
I had a razorback on order for a few months, but the deadline kept getting pushed back further and further, so I said screw it and went for the FBD, and I'm glad I did.
You didnt include installation price in that. Hes obviously young and hasnt really learned how to do all that stuff himself but to each his own I guess. I settled for just using the same pickups in a mahogany bodied floyd equipped guitar so I saved about 400 bucks on you so pooey! lolsepsis311 said:I bought an 79 series mlf ($650),
swapped out the crappy floyd, for a schaller ($165)
Put in a L500XL ($50)
Put in SD '59 with push pull tap ($80)
$945 total... The FBD runs around $850, and you dont get a real floyd, and no SD '59. What are you paying so much for? The crest on the headstock, and the sticker (which is too big, and folds into the floyd cavity)... I would return it, and get the mlf, and do the mods. Besides, dime didn't play the tribute guitar when he signed to Dean again, he used a modded 79 milf, so why not just get that?
Who cares how much a guitar is worth in the future? It wont matter to you in a hundred years, thats for sure. So get it cause it's playable and fun, not cause it might become valuable. I havn't played a FBD, so i can't comment on which setup is better... but i will say this. IF the fbd plays like my mlf before i did the mods, then it sucks.666boy666 said:Obviously I'm young? listen, a modded guitar doesn't come with a warranty and doesn't have that much resale value, not to mention not being a collectors item. I never said I got the guitar cause I wanted to hump dime's leg, it is just a cool guitar. I have a strat that I modded personally to be an Yngwie strat, so if I wanted to mod something, I have no problem doing it.
I think your kind of stepping over the line dude. Id like to ask you to calm down with the whole rant here. Just walking in the forum and telling some kid his guitar sucks because he didnt mod it himself is kind of mean.sepsis311 said:Who cares how much a guitar is worth in the future?
