My thoughts on the Bill Lawrence debate
Ok, I'm tired of the endless threads about which Bill Lawrence is better and which one Dime used. Here is my take on the whole thing. I believe Dime used both. Think about it. Dime loved to experiment. In the Dime Clinic video, he said he bought his from StewMac which would mean the BLUSA ones. But when Seymour Duncan made the Dimebucker, they based it off of a prototype he had. I believe this prototype was made by Bill and Becky because the Dimebucker has the same thick rails. I have seen pics of Dime's guitars with thin railed pickups and the thick railed. I have not used a BLUSA L-500XL so I can't say anything about them. I ordered one from Bill and Becky last year and it sounds great. The pickups in my Dean from Hell CFH are from Bill and Becky. I verified this with Dean, Becky, and Funky Munky Music. Its not like I really had to ask though. It's identical to the one I had ordered before.
I'm willing to bet that the BLUSA pickups are good and probably sound very similar to the Bill and Becky ones. Dime probably didn't worry about the difference in rail size as long as it was called a L-500XL. He probably used whatever ones he could find. From what I know, when he had the beefed up L-500XL made he went to Bill and Becky. I think he called it the L-500XXL. This is the pickup Seymour Duncan based the Dimebucker on. So even though he said he bought his pickups from StewMac in '93, I believe he got in touch with Bill and Becky later on.
Anyway, I'm simply trying to say that I believe Dime used both types. Decide for yourself which one you like with your own ears. There is no "fake" pickup.
never can find a correct tab for domination solo!
sorry if this has already been discussed, but does anyone have a good transcription of the domination solo from the live moscow performance, or just the album version for that matter? all tabs i see on the ascending-triplet picking part start on the wrong frets, i noticed dime starts on the 9th fret on the lowest string first, plus at the end of that part where he slows it down right before the huge whammy-bar squeal, cant find anything that sounds right...
Guitar balance problem
on Mon Jul 03, 2006 5:24 pm
I own an ESP Ltd 250 Explorer (not the car though )
and i had some serious troubles with it as the neck would fall way down when i stood up with the axe. So i fixed the problem by screwing 4 bigass metal screws in the biggest horn to set the balance haha. My super-cool grampa did it for me and im all set now. Anyway, to get to the point, I was recently reading about the washburn dime models having the same balance problem, so i wanted to ask you dean owners if anyone experienced a problem like that with dime dean models. getcha pull
Transbrazilian sunburst '79 ML
on Mon Jul 03, 2006 6:20 pm
I think im gonna go for that '79 Transbrazilian ML instead of the FBD tribute. The brand new Transbrazilian with shipment costs me around 850$ which i think is a great deal. What i'd like to know is your experience with this guitar...is it worth and what are the real technical differences between this and FBD except the pups?
My 3(Threee!!!!)rd of July Salute to Dimebag. . .
on Tue Jul 04, 2006 4:20 am
heressome pics of my razorback rust that i bought a few weeks ago.
ive seen some that look like a cartoon type paint job that i didnt like, but dean has a couple different guys painting them now. this is the best one ive seen so far. and it plays and sounds better than it looks.
I am trying to find any sites where I can download manuals for:Furman pq4, Warhead (head and 2x12 combo), RG 200 and RG100HT. I would appreciate any help. Thanks
hey guys, new here, need some help
on Wed Jul 05, 2006 11:23 pm
The tribute to Dime-MLs that were displayed at the NAMM show, the ones where various artists had made their custom graphics on it , anyone got some good pics of it?
especially the one where a gun shoots a bullet at a \m/, and the bullet just bounces off, cant remember who made it. love that pic, it makes a good statement.
thanks in advance, reallt appreciate it.
What Was In Dimebag's 1981 ML Dean?!?!
Ok..I have a ML...haha..not his official model, but a ML reguardless...I know that Dime ALWAYS used a BL L-500 in his bridge...now the question is...did he have a SEYMOUR DUNCAN 59' or a DiMarzio Super Distortion in his NECK?!?!
Dimarzio Super Distortion opinions?
I'm thinking about replacing the stock Dean pickup in the neck position of my DFH CFH. I know the USA models have the Dimarzio super distortion in them. I have a Duncan '59 in my Ibanez and Washburn and I like it but I don't want to just buy another '59.
Has anyone here used a super distortion in the neck position or think they sound good there? And is it what Dime used in his Dean from Hell?
Okay, which ML's have the neck contour on the neck heel? You know in the back where the strap button is? I've seen some MLFs with it, what about D-O-F? FBD, DFH? Can each of you guys that have one chime in?

Dime's letter to Phil in Ashes?
just finished watching BTM and started listening to Ashes, the extra track on the Japanese version of NFP. I noticed that right at the start there's the line "trample across my peaceful mind", a phrase which Rita reads from a letter Dime sent to Phil. The rest of the song sounds like it can be applied to Phil, just wondering what you guys thought.
here's a link to the lyrics too.
Feedback trouble with DFH CFH?
on Mon Jul 10, 2006 11:27 pm
Is anyone else having a feedback problem with their DFH CFH? I have an Ibanez RG with a L-500XL from Bill and Becky. I ordered it myself so I know its from them. The pickup in the CFH is supposed to be from Bill and Becky but it has worse feedback. With the Ibanez if I put my hands on the strings there isn't any feedback. With the CFH it doesn't matter, there is terrible feedback between stopped notes. If I put my hands on the strings to stop the feedback it still doesn't go away. Is this a possible ground problem?
Did Bill & Becky skip on the wax for the DFH???
I think I know why my L-500XL is having feedback issues. Its not waxed. The one I ordered last year is potted in wax and has no feedback problems. I know pickups are waxed to reduce feedback. Did Bill & Becky skip on the wax in order to produce more pickups for Dean? Maybe Dean was going to get the pickups from BLUSA if Bill and Becky couldn't make enough in time. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow and find out what the deal is with the wax.

Update on feedback trouble with DFH
I am still getting the feedback but I noticed something new just now. I am hoping this will help pinpoint my problem. I found a spot where I can hold my hand above the pickup where the feedback will stop. If I put my hand really close to the pickup I get feedback. I can move my hand back an inch or two from it and it goes away. If I move my hand too far from it the feedback comes back. When I tilt the guitar different directions the pitch of the feedback changes slightly. And at one point, the feedback went away for a little bit while sitting the guitar on its back in my lap. When I would touch one of the middle screws that adjusts pickup height I would get a really high pitched feedback.
Any ideas as to what is causing this? How could putting my hand near the pickup in a certain spot stop the feedback?

The DFH and Transbrazilia question
on Sat Jul 15, 2006 8:51 pm
Ok, please don't bash me immediately but i gotta (potentially stupid) question. Aren't the DFH and that Transbrazilia (with marijuana sticker) just some ordinary Dean ML's which Dime won/bought?
I mean, you buy an ordinary ML and just put a good floyd on it and install a Bill Lawrence and you have pretty much the same guitar except the paint finish...
Randall brings back the Warhead!
Hey guys, I was just looking on Musiciansfriend and saw
that Randall is selling the original Warheads again. It
says they are due in stock 7-15. I wonder if these are old
stock they had left over, or if they're new ones? I hope they
fixed all the problems that the original ones had. If so I've gotta
get one. $699 ain't a bad price either. Weren't they originally
Anyone know if one of these would be worth the cash?
this is interview with Mr DEAN.
DIME was looking for Mr DEAN six months before he signed with washburn.
i didn't know that.
anyway check this out.

$557.90 for a Randall RG100ES!
on Tue Jul 18, 2006 12:54 am
It looks to be near mint, including the footswitch and all. Still, it's suprising someone would pay that much...
Hey guys, just trying to put together a list of all the Pantera B-side songs and movie Soundtracks the CFH came up with, including anything with Dimebag! I remember "Heard it one the X" by the Tres Diablos. Anyway, please help me remember all the songs that aren't on the studio albums, I was thinking of putting together a few CDs kinda like Garage Days, or Megadeth's Hidden Treasures.
I know some of you guys are already looking at this, but here you go anyway.
The price is totaly gazongas. If I had the cash I'd place a bid on it right now.
did DIME play any IMPORT ML's (like '79 series ?) ??
or they any pics of him playing them ?

My Washburn Dime3 broke in half (dont ask why or how) so i gutted it of the Duncan 59" and the LX500 only thing is the lx500 has way more wires then the standard l500 and i noticed some of em being (green blue white ect.) were going to the toggle selector. ( it had a total of 6 wired sodierd to it) im planning on putting those to pick ups in my dean V, sould i take out the stock 3 way selector and put the wasburn in and by process of elemation try to figure this mess out. ( have dont have a wiring diagram to work with nor can find on the net)
Well if anyone could gimmie some helpfull advice that would be much ablidigeeffasled.@ dont worry ill keep practicing my spelling and what not. thanksQ!

but this is my friends band's cover of Cowboys from Hell. It's live so so it's a bit fuzzy and stuff.
are there any live DVD's (official or bootleg) of a ful, concert of Pantera. There are snippets here and there on the Home Video's, and Dimevision, but I'm talking a full concert. I'm thinkin a Pantera DVD from the CFH/Vulgar era.
the MXR blue 6 band at guitar center WTF!?!
i just went to guitar centers web site and i looked at the MXR eqs and one of em' was the blue one for $64.99. wow that ain't bad to be able to get it on the spot w/out bidding on it(uhh can someone confirm this for me thanks)

Yesterday Don't Mean....Poop
on Mon Jul 24, 2006 10:53 pm
Anyone else REALLY dig this song? Havn't heard it talked about that much at all which is a shame.....heck same with the entire Reinventing the Steel album, great heavy yet melodic stuff man
here is a vid http://youtube.com/watch?v=OqnP7thXM1I&search=pantera%20live
careful though, it does show naughty things
Im really confused what guitar this is? It doesn' seem to be the original Dean from Hell, look at where the lightning is positioned, if you look at the original theres no lightning going into the pickup.
The original DFH http://www.deanguitars.com/dime/deanfromhell/pages/BodyFromHell_jpg.htm
and thirdly, if u look at the '5 Minutes Alone Video' the lightning is positioned by the pickup as well
I thought it might be one made for Dime by Dean but the first pic looks too early for that.
Correct me if im talking bulcrap

.....BOW DOWN...I'm that damn good, it's really quite amazing.
okay, which should I get? RG-100ES, or X2? Basically I'm wondering which has more gain, more volume, and better Dime Tone. I will be using it with the Warhead Cabs 4X12 and 2X15. Can the RG handle the cabs since it pushs 150watts instead of 300watts from a warhead. Also how much volume drops in an RG when u pull the knob? Is the RG loud? I'm figuring its as loud as 50watt Valve amp, right?
i was looking on youtube and found this really good tribute video
$4k USA Tropical Dimebolt!!!???
Man, I just stopped by this little out of the way music store here
in Ft. Worth about an hour ago cause I heard they deal Deans
now. Anyway I got to check out the Razorbacks which was cool,
but I looked up on the wall and they had a Tropical USA Dimebolt
(all blue with white bolts and blue headstock, also had the Dean
wings on the 12th fret). Anyway, told the guy that was a cool
tropical and asked him how much. He said oh I could take $4000,
I said what??? for a Tropical??? Then the idiot next to him said,
"that's vintage stuff man, the real old school USA". I just laughed
and walked out.
I was flippin through the channels the other night and saw Scott Ian so I went back, and he was on that show "NewsRadio." He was being interviewed by some chick
LADY: *sometihng about guitars, can't remember*
SCOTT: Actually on the new album, a lot of the guitar work was done by our friend Dimebag Darrell
LADY: From Pantara?
It was pretty cool

about monsters of rock in moscow's tone
on Sat Jul 29, 2006 10:07 am
i love DIME's tone when he played in moscow(monsters of rock).
and i always lookin for that tone.
finally i got super close to that tone,i think.....i think....
please let me know what you think.
check this out.
sorry for my mistake.
Ok, I recently bought me a new RX120DHS. All I have to say is it is worth every penny if you want that "CFH-FBD tone". It gets amazing clean tone as well. It also has 16 built-in FX on it. I recommend this amp for any Pantera fan out there.
how bout this for a killer deal?
on Sun Jul 30, 2006 12:49 am
So i'm at Motor City Guitar today trading to get a new guitar when this guy comes in to trade in his washburn 333 to pay off his amp. i got the 333 from him instead of the 332 which was cool since i'm a floyd user but here's the kicker...he turned in his guitar to get a Warhead X2 originally priced at $333!!!!!!The only thing wrong with it was the fx knob was busted off.....that knocked $1500 off of the selling price.
Killer deal and slightly ironic.

Line 6 POD users.....tone help...
I recently got a POD XT Live for jamming in my condo, when not in my parent's house (I have a JCM800 2203zw halfstack there). I'll also use this as a backup rig if something happened to my Marshall in a live setting.
Anyways...I have set up tones for Van Halen, Slayer, myself, and Joe Satriani amongst others.
I don't have a good Dimebag tone (from any era), and am having a hell of a time trying to create it. I've tried a few from www.customtone.com
and they all suck.
Anyone have a good set-up? Like, what amp setting they use, basic settings, as well as what pedals you have in the Dimebag tone? Anything would help!

Who hates Randall and US musical other than me????
Damn! I just got my new Randall RG100 G3 in about an hour ago.
pulled it out of the box, plugged it in and guess what, it don't
work. You crank it to 10 and it's barely audible, has almost no
volume at all. The bad part is that I have bought 2 G2 Randalls in
the past that had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM!! Why can't these
turds build an amp that works????
I know they had some
issues with their stuff and I'm sure some of you guys have had
one with the same problem, but I figured they would have fixed
the problem on the G3's. WTF?? They don't seem to care about
the quality of their products at all anymore.
