From Buddy’s Facebook: “About 30 years ago, I bought this ’79 Dean ML from my good friend Eugene at the Arlington Guitar Show… I started restoring it in ’87. I got very busy with Kramer and Vivian Campbell at the time, so I put it in its case, in its present state. It has been there ever since then… I have pulled it out a couple of times since then, once to show Dimebag Darrell when Pantera was in New York touring with Prong. He was always looking for used MLs back then… Anyway, it’s time for me to finally finish it and find a new home for it. Who wants a genuine vintage Dean ’79 ML restored by Buddy Blaze? Call 818 620 6445 to put your name on it. Serious only please…”

Looks like Dean has some cool new stuff coming out…

Got the Dean mail-out yesterday with info about their NAMM webcast and 35th anniversary celebrations. The graphic at the top of the email looked cool enough – bitchen two-headed eagle thing, NAMM dates, booth number… but then I looked in the bottom left corner, two axes tucked away behind another:

Good lord. It’s a Dean VMNT Dave Mustaine signature with a Peace Sells …But Who’s Buying? graphic, and a version (with a different headstock) of one of Dimebag Darrell’s lesser-known but cooler Dean MLs! In fact, this was the guitar Dime was using in one of the first pics I ever saw of him, in a Randall ad back in the day when Dime went by the name Diamond Darrell publicly instead of Dimebag Darrell. You can see Dime using this axe in this video for “Primal Concrete Sledge,” and that’s what this Dean model is named: the Dime ‘Concrete Sledge’ ML. The original was actually a Washburn neck on a Dean body.

Keep an eye on Dean’s website and I Heart Guitar at NAMM time!
