A guitar that screams with its EMG pick-ups.
The Dean Razorback 255 electric guitar has two powerful EMG humbuckers: the EMG-81 in the bridge position provides higher output for overdriven, screaming leads with tons of sustain, and the EMG-85 in the neck position gives a beefy low end and fatter top, great for rhythm and blues.
The mahogany body with a flamed maple top, a mahogany neck, and rosewood fretboard provide warm, balanced resonance. Grover tuners and a locking tremolo keep you in perfect tune for extended dive-bombing. 24 fast frets facilitate wicked, shredding solos and lightning quick chord changes. 3-way switching and volume and tone control keep things simple, yet tonally flexible, and with tons of presence.
Being a Dean guitar, the Razorback 255 looks as good as it sounds. Dangerous-looking edges are highlighted by color-contrast bevels on the body and outlines on the famous Dean headstock.
Dimebag Darrell Abbott's return to Dean Guitars was one of the many things cut far too short by his death near the end of 2004, but his many drawings and ideas have kept the guitar makers at Dean inspired. These Razorback 255s were some of Darrell's final designs, and we're sure they will inspire you, too.
