Blame Dime's family. He's just a cash cow to Dean. Though, he was somebodies' family. Somebody who I'm sure has to approve much of what comes out with Dime's name on it, if not everything.

Though, lets let this 5 month old thread die.

I have a Washburn Dime sig and it rips, but I also have a Dean 7 string Vendetta which ALSO rips... but I have to say what Dean are doing IMO Washburn would never have done...

If I owned a guitar company and one of my signed artist died, I would make 1 last tribute model, run a limited number (probably the year of their birth, like 1973 or sometime), and then stop production on everything related to that fallen artist. You just have to be respectful to the deceased and it would be a healthy move for everyone because even though it's 100% unfortunate to loose someone but you just have to move on and cherish the memories. The idea is to celebrate that person's life and accomplishments; not burn it to the ground for the sake of making money. There are a godzillion bad ass artists, who deserve recognition and their time in the spot light, that you can make a fortune on.

Imo, if you want a tribute to Dimebag, get a Washburn, not a Dean ffs. That being said, I do look the look of those Razor's.

I want to get a vending machine, with fun sized candy bars, and the glass in front is a magnifying glass. You'll be mad, but it will be too late.

I think Washburn are the only company to have shown restraint in the wake of Dime's death as they have several Dime models that Dean probably don't have the rights to make such as the Culprit and the Stealth but they haven't rushed them out to make a quick buck.

Remember, Dean did push out a Stealth and they didn't have the rights. but, might pay fees to Washburn to make them and call them that.

Yes it shows how a "Classy" company would pay tribute to one of their endorsee's. even though it took them long enough.

Yeah they do have some kind of cooperative deal going on cause when Dean went quiet in the 90's Washburn actually paid copyright to them to use the ML shape in all their Dime sigs.
I could be wrong but I think part of the reason the Culprit and Stealth sigs were originally created was so Washburn had their own shape and didn't have to pay Dean to use it, but either way I think it's cool Washburn haven't rushed out a new ltd edition ripoff of the Culprit despite it being the rarest of all the 90's Dime sigs.

My sis made a set of these for my birthday a couple days after he was killed (knowing he was my idol and all). Still got em in my cupboard!

It was also ugly and sold poorly. I also still want one in each colour

I honestly don't see why anyone cares. If you don't want shitty Dime products, then just stay away from Dean and respect his legacy in your own way. That's what I do, anyway.

Well, if a friend died and someone tried to exploit it for personal gain, I'd get pissed. Dime is an idol to a lot of guitar players and seeing this done could be very upsetting. Seems like Dean and Dime's family are making more money off Dime than Dime did.

Shitloads of musicians have passed over the years, many of whom were bigger than Dime and endorsed by bigger companies, yet I can't recall seeing other companies doing what Dean are doing. Think of how many dead legends were endorsed by Fender? Jimi doesn't have a sig and Kurt Cobain has 1. Dime has ....ing 30-something, beside the clothing and merch etc.

Granted there is nothing anyone can do about it, but what's an internet forum for if not for sharing opinions?

When there are more "Dime" guitars than any other series, you must know somethings up...

Seriously, as much as I dislike the font size 72 DIME on headstocks, I think what matters is whether people buy it or not. Things like "what would dime think" are none of our business, one can have an opinion without resorting to bashing a company that, as a lot of others do some very good and some not-so-good guitars. I have owned a korean VMNT and it was a very nice guitar for its price tag. I don't plan to buy others since I'm not really a vintage stuff nor a pointy guy, but this company doesn't deserve any more bashing of its products than say, Gibson.
I have bought absolutely zero dime stuff and likely won't ever but I see no reason to bash the company for making money if the family agrees with it. Yers maybe it's bad taste, but what matters is money, what if it works ?
