The Dean Razorback V 255 features 2 EMG humbuckers: the EMG-81 in the bridge position provides higher output for overdriven, screaming leads with hours of sustain, while the EMG-85 in the neck position gives a fatter low end and top. The Dean Razorback V 255 has a mahogany neck and body and a rosewood fretboard.
The V-shape neck has a strong, set-joint and a 1-5/8" nut. Grover tuners and a locking tremolo keep the Razorback in perfect tune while you divebomb the night away. 22 fast frets facilitate wicked, shredding solos and lightning quick chord changes. 3-way switching, volume and tone control keep things simple, yet tonally flexible, and with tons of presence.
Being a Dean, the Razorback V 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. V inlays with Dime's razorblade at the twelfth fret plus all black hardware make this guitar wickedly stunning.
Dimebag Darrell'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 flying V 255s were some of Darrell's final designs.
