    Looks like the Dean we seen wasnt a Dimebag model. Though im not a fan of this particular model its interesting to see that there is now a TOM8 bridge. Plus the scale lenght is 26.5in which isnt terrible (I own a Schecter with the same and its managable). The specs dont seem too bad for the price of $699 as seen on ebay. Sad to see another black guitar though :(

    • Mahogany Top/Body
    • 26-1/2" Scale

    Think we've seen this one before, dude... but that's a pretty good price.

    Not too keen on the guitar itself though. This is probably Dean's worst year for new products for a while.

    I go through the forums quite a bit daily, and so far last ive seen was a crappy picture, specualtion of it being a way to milk Dimes name, and no information on specs.

    Wait, so Wayne Static uses 8 strings now? I love Wayne, but barely used 6 strings...

    I thought it was always pretty clear that it was a Wayne Static sig? :scratch:

    I think the fact that it's an 8-string, with a fixed bridge and EMGs and no shitty graphics, was probably a giveaway that it wasn't a Dime model :lol:

    There's plenty of pics and info in there, I think.

    Ya know...I was gonna say the EXACT same thing but I wasnt sure if anyone would think I was a dick lol.

    If this is a "repost" im sorry, but last I went through the thread with the picture of this I assumes there was still unanswered questions. :idea:

    I'm not a Dean fan but I really dig this shape it's like the old Dime Washburn stealth model crossed with the standard ML shape I think the ebay seller has it wrong though as the Dean page doesn't even list it as a sig plus all the videos of Wayne Static's solo tour I've seen show him and his band playing 6's.

    If that's the price it goes for on sites like Musiciansfriend, it'll actually be pretty tempting.

    I know he does play a guitar with the same body so maybe he made an assumption? Actually if you look on the official page it has Wayne at the top, so is the "modifier" his sig name?

    Many, in fact. I've owned two. The headstocks tend to go straight for the floor. I imagine this will be even worse.

    If it wasn't for the headstock I'd like this a lot. The body shape is nice but that headstock will cause WAY too much neck dive.

    Wayne Static? 8-string? EMGs? None of this adds up. :scratch:

    Exactly, you sounded like you were speaking from experience when you said ''neck dive called'' :lol:

    ^Neckdive is when you have your guitar strapped on to your body, you hold it in playing position, and let go. If the guitar neck goes towards the ground, it got neck dive. If it flat out hits the ground, you are holding the guitar in the wrong direction. :lol:

    But yeah, those specs doesn't add up to me at all either. Didn't he also have a signature 6'er with ESP a couple of years ago? Metal-plate top and explorer-shaped?

    Correct me if I'm wrong here but every Static song I ever heard didn't have more than 3 chords and those sounded like sampled loops...

    Not sure what he's gonna do with all those strings...
