    I really hate the Dean Dimes with Graphics. They look like awful stickers. There is no way anybody would pay over $3,000 for a Dean Concrete Sledge if it wasn't a Dimebag. Thing is hideous.

    I feel the same way about those Jacksons with the giant "P" inlay. Though, I suppose if my name was Pete or Paul or something I'd think differently. :lol:

    Dean REALLY needs to stop with the graphics. Unfortunately they're known for it and people buy them so they keep doing it. One of my Deans has tribal graphics. As much as I used to hate it it's grown on me and I no longer want it repainted.

    That being said I hate graphics and I wish Dean would knock it off

    It’s not too hard if you use a sort of classical, lute or fingerstyle R-hand technique, with the pinky resting below the 1st string, where the volume knob acts as kind of a rest for the finger.

    If you use any different picking technique I imagine it would be quite a bit harder!

    :rofl:

    I really have no idea how people “accidentally” hit the volume knob...

    It’s like they’re grating Parmesan cheese or something?

    I can't play a strat without randomly turning the volume up and down. I rest my hand on the bridge, so that I can slide it forward slightly to be palm muting and back slightly to not mute. I don't think that's at all an unusual way to play, especially for more modern styles with lots of palm muting. Other guitars with the volume knob a decent distance from the bridge pickup are obviously not an issue though.

    Of course it’s not unusual to “shred” cheese...
    :drool: :cond:

    (Tough crowd I guess, sheesh!)
