    Eh he’s good enough he probably doesn’t need side dots anyway

    Also bevels bevels everywhere. Bevels for everyone

    Huh, I guess something was up when he got his ESP back. I wonder what happened behind the scenes with Ibanez?

    Some killer looking guitars for sure, though.

    Honestly not surprised. Guess I’m glad I hung on to my DCM100!

    Im down with that. While Ibanez do give him LACS pieces, he hasnt been getting the sig treatment and exposure he deserves like the other artists in their lineup.

    Maybe it's just me, but not super nice to tag Ibanez saying he's going to the next level with another brand...

    In defense of Ibanez, it's not like Dino has been super active the last couple years.

    I love FF, and Dino’s riffage, but he usually comes across as either whiny or full of himself.

    In the end, whatever guitar suits him and inspires his music is where he should be.

    Okay so apparently there was some legal shit causing Ibanez to discontinue the DCM100 a couple of years ago? I imagine that soured the relationship.

    He's not. He's a super nice guy and he 100% deserves this deal.

    'In 2014, after being with Ibanez for 17+ years I finally got my first signature guitar, the DCM100. Most people felt I deserved a signature guitar many years before that, but I was just happy I finally got one. Unfortunately in late 2017 my guitar was discontinued for legal reasons beyond all of our control'.

    Discontinued for legal reasons?

    Would have loved to see him go with Solar instead though. Just imagine a one hum solar a7 with neat bevels. Blank ebony board. And nine of that solar logo on the 12th position.

    Yum.

    On another note someone called this on one of the ibanez Facebook pages a while ago. Ormsby was heavily hinting at it on an Instagram story that popped up.

    He was awesome the one time I met him. I asked if they ever played “Hi-Tech Hate” live and we proceeded to air guitar the riff at one another.

    Just seems like every other interview he’s bitching or talking smack.

    Like I said, he wants to work with Perry, more power to him.

    EDIT: The Aussie connection was another reason I wasn’t surprised.

    EDIT:EDIT: After rereading his post, yeah some of it comes across as cocky, but maybe he deserves to be? What do I know, just hope that Ormsby treats him well.

    That feel when you incorrectly tag the new company you're working with in the official announcement.

    I'm shocked by this..... Maybe I shouldn't be? People's tastes change over the years, some don't. Dino's did apparently. Hope it works out for him! I never did understand why the DCM100 didn't continue on (what's this legal thing referred to??).

    Also curious what he's got going on for pickups. The Retribution was also cancelled a while ago and he said he had something new in the works.

    Regardless I'm glad I got a DCM100.

    I think Ormsby makes their own pickups?

    Also I just realized the red camo guitar is a fanned-fret.

    That red camo looks cooler than I want to admit. Usually camo anything looks cheesy. But that’s nice.
