Now this is a weird kind of gimmick, if you ask me.
A new limited edition Dean Dimebag Darrell Signature Roots ML guitar was rolled out at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, which is happening now until tomorrow at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
“This very special guitar, limited to only 200 individually numbered pieces, features an oak razor blade inlayed directly into the body of the guitar,” says a presser.
“The 200 razor blades were cut from a branch of an old oak tree, located right outside the studio window in Dimebag’s backyard where Pantera recorded most of their now-legendary albums.”
So, its a guitar not made of wood from a tree in Dime’s yard, but with splinters from a branch cut from a tree in Dime’s yard.
“This is a historical, guitar-industry first. The wood used in the making of this guitar was taken directly from the artist’s backyard with the blessing and endorsement of his loved ones!”
This is just morbid and strange. And just a shameless attempt to continue to cash in on a dead guy’s name.
