    While the V headstock isn't the worst, I wish they'd use the shrimp fork headstock again.

    I love the dean headstock on some of their guitars. The ML’s, v’s, explores’, caddy’s and anything dime they look great. But this ughhh it looks like what my kid would draw up. If he would have had the normal dean headstock with the wings of his old esp, then that would look good. Can’t wait to see the god awful graphics in store for the future with these.....

    Maybe it's just an illusion since it flares out instead of in making it look like way more wood. Looking at that picture though reminds me that I hate the string angle behind the nut, too. Might be wrong here too, but it looks worse (or at least the same) as a gibson LP, which I already hate.

    I don't like MLs or the Dean headstock, but Cadillacs rule

    It's the one Dean that interests me at all, and the over-the-top headstock on it is a part of the package. "Cadillac" is the perfect name for the model, for better or for worse.

    I don't understand the audience if King isn't going to make Slayer music?

    Or is he gonna go Anselmo and launch a series of other projects? I'd love to hear him push into death metal territory.

    He is going to be the new guitarist in Megadeth when Kiko Loureiro is fired.

    Excellent theory, I see no reason to doubt this. Dean has Oakland cornered as a market.

    Imagine a kerry king rendition of the tornado of souls solo. Barf bags are to the right for your convenience.

    No, they're gonna hire Gary Holt, ensuring another 6 years without a new Exodus album.

    The real guitar even looks like a bad photoshop with that abrupt body to horn nub transition

    What is he doing with all those switches?

    Is the world gonna end the exact moment Kerry King coil split his pickups?

    He's joining Aerosmith for "Honkin' on Bobo 2", so show off his true passion, 12-bar blues.

    The problem with your hypothesis is that it assumes KK is good enough to play prog-thrash. :fawk:
