The Dean Eric Peterson signature Old Skull V starts shipping this month. According to this post on, the Testament guitarist says “I’m very excited because I finally have a signature coming out. It’s a guitar I’ve been playing for a while, and I think people will enjoy the action. It’s got triple-binding, all-black EMG pick-ups, block inlay, and some really cool artwork. Not too much, but enough to keep it evil!”
